CNN: World’s deepest pool opens in Dubai, part of huge underwater city

Already home to the world’s tallest skyscraper and the world’s largest mall, Dubai has just opened another record-breaking attraction — the deepest dive pool in the world.

With a staggering depth of 60 meters (196 feet), the pool, part of the new Deep Dive Dubai attraction — has stolen the record from Poland’s Deepspot, which has a depth of over 45 meters.

The Deep Dive Dubai pool is filled with 14 million liters of fresh water — the volume of six Olympic-sized swimming pools — and is at least four times bigger than any other diving pool in the world. Guinness awarded it the “Deepest swimming pool for diving” title on June 27.

The facility is open by invitation only for now but will open to the public later this year. The crown prince of Dubai Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, a keen diver, was one of the first visitors and shared his experience on social media.

Water temperature is maintained at 30 degrees Celsius (86 degrees Fahrenheit), a comfortable temperature for wearing a thin wetsuit or a swimsuit.
