Start a thrilling and exciting adventure
Here are some pictures of my friend Hobograph and Nemanja’s great adventures in Deep Dive Dubai.
Deep Dive Dubai’s 196-foot-deep ‘Waterwater City’ has ‘abandoned’ homes and an archway to explore! Cool, isn’t it? Unfortunately, I couldn’t try it due to surgery a few weeks ago, but I hope I can try it when I get back.
The good thing about Deep Dive Dubai is that they also have An introductory dive for beginners. So, if you have never dived before, you will have the opportunity to try the deepest pool in the world for the first time! Speaking of pride, hahaha!
I will not lie, when we arrived at Deep Dive Dubai and saw the pool, we were overwhelmed to see it – “This pool is not running! So deep! “, I thought to myself. But hey, I’m an adventurer and I love adventure so I’m 100% willing to try! Then I remembered I couldn’t do it this time because of my recent surgery.
Fortunately, my friends, Hobograph and Nemanja were able to try it and I can still share their experience with you.
The Deep Dive Dubai pool is no ordinary pool where there is nothing to see below. I mean, yes, it’s deep, but other than that, there’s a lot more to explore once you dive.
Diving here feels like entering a new world! It’s like going for an ocean swim (without any fish and walls). There’s even a grocery cart! Hahaha! Mind going shopping?
They provide all the equipment so all you have to do is listen to the instructions, have the courage to dive and enjoy the experience! If you want to try it with your kids, they won’t have a problem until they are 10 years old or older.
I was really jealous to see them have fun swimming! I really wanted to go and join them but I couldn’t. At the moment I know I must go back to Dubai for this. I really can’t wait to do this activity! So, I guess I have to finish my goal of visiting all the countries in the world right now so that I can go straight to Dubai and dive deep in Dubai. Hahaha!
