Dubai is home to the world’s biggest things and the most recent addition is the world’s deepest swimming pool- Deep Dive Dubai. Apart from its depth and of course a LOT of water, there’s a lot more to this swimming pool. The pool literally had a hidden underwater world, which divers can explore. And now, the pool is home to a swanky Mercedes convertible which divers can explore. Here’s more!

What makes Deep Dive a favourite among divers and content creators is that the pool frequently gets a new makeover with exciting upgrades. Get ready to get behind the wheels of a swanky red Mercedes convertible, underwater!
If you’re a regular visitor to Deep Dive Dubai or a follower them on social media platforms, you may have noticed that they frequently change and upgrade the props in the pool. Last year, they dropped in a grey Mercedes convertible. But it was recently removed for repairs.
To freshen up its look, the Merc was painted red, and the Mercedes is now back in place and ready for divers to enjoy. The updated Mercedes adds to the fun and adventure of diving at Deep Dive Dubai.
Just 25 minutes from Dubai International Airport, the pool measures in at 60.02m (196.9ft) deep right to the bottom, and is divided into three sections.
There are underwater dry chambers at the 6m (19.7ft) and 21m (68.9ft) marks where divers can take off the scuba gear for some fresh air if they don’t want to descend too far.
As you explore the world’s deepest pool in these first phases, you can wave to loved ones on the other side of the glass through observation windows. The entire sunken, post-apocalyptic city is also visible underwater, complete with houses that can be freely explored. There are several motorcycles, a foosball table, and an exercise bike you can explore.
To go any further than this, however, you must be a very skilled diver with a certification in order to explore 60 meters below the surface. Even though the long, deep diving tube is lined with speakers and lights to aid in navigation, you still need to make your way down it.
To ensure everyone’s safety and to show those eating lunch in the cafe while remaining dry, a live feed of divers diving to the bottom is broadcast everywhere.
Deepspot, a 45m (147.6ft) deep pool that opened in Poland just months earlier in December 2020, lost the record to Deep Dive Dubai.
Are you up for the dive?
