This is the moment a scuba diver explores the world’s deepest swimming pool and its many underwater attractions in Dubai.
Last month, Deep Dive Dubai opened to the public, boasting a pool with a depth of 60 metres (197 feet).
According to Guinness World Records, the pool is 15 metres deeper than any other around the globe.
With nearly 15 million litres of freshwater, visitors can play table football or take part in other games at the bottom as well as explore the pool’s ‘sunken city’ and its many features.
Abdulla Alsenaani, 36, from the United Arab Emirates (UAE), shared footage of him exploring the pool on TikTok for his 655,000 followers and Instagram where he boasts 32,000 fans.
He told Newsflash: “I enjoy pushing my body to the limit, challenging myself to get out of my comfort zone and experience new adventures filled with adrenaline as much as possible, and diving is one of my passions that enable me to do so.
“Diving helped me improve my swimming and breathing skills and it gave me the opportunity to discover the beautiful underwater world, from coral reefs to discovering sunken treasures to enjoying swimming with the schools of fish, dolphins, sharks and on some occasions even whales.
“Diving at the Deep Dive Dubai pool was an incredible experience. I was thrilled to dive into this unexpected mini interactive city that no other pool in the world allowed me to.
“The deeper I dived, the more interesting and exciting it was as each room was so different. It was real fun being able to ride a bicycle and play pool underwater.
“I will keep visiting the pool and try to dive deeper so I can discover the rest of its surprises.”
Abdulla told Newsflash: “My lifestyle is quite active and balanced between family, work, travelling, and sports. Diving is one of the many passions I like to explore as much as I can during my free time and worldwide trips.”
