Beneath the deep: Dubai ‘sunken city’ a playground for divers

Accompanied by lights and ambient music, Deep Dive Dubai is set to provide scuba enthusiasts a phantasmagoric sunken city experience at the bottom of the world’s deepest swimming pool.

At 60m deep, and holding 14.6 million litres of water, the pool, situated in the UAE city of superlatives – Dubai already boasts the world tallest tower, biggest fountain and fastest roller-coaster – is essentially a diver’s fantasy playground.

Thanks to the imagination of its architects, there is an entire underwater urban environment to explore, complete with alleys, pool halls, cafés and homes, made even more atmospheric by the sound and lighting design from 15m deep speakers and over 150 sources of illumination.

There are also 56 cameras throughout the pool to ensure safety.

While the experience is, at present, by invitation only, Deep Dive Dubai is anticipated as opening to the public soon, and will likely cost between $135-$410 for a one-hour dive.
