Experience the Sunken City! All About Deep Dive Dubai

The emirate of Dubai never ceases to surprise its visitors. Continuing its tradition, it has come up with a brand new attraction that will allow visitors to take a dive into the world’s deepest pool. This is yet another addition to the list of the world’s ‘biggest/highest/deepest’ attractions in Dubai.

A treat for water adventurists, Deep Dive Dubai was opened for visitors in late July, and since then, they have had nothing but great things to say about this underwater attraction. Feeling excited?

Deep Dive Dubai – Location

This underwater facility is located in Nad Al Sheba 1. It can be accessed via metro (nearest station = Burj Khalifa/Dubai Mall) or RTA bus from almost every part of the emirate. If you have a private vehicle, you can park it in the huge parking space of the Deep Dive Dubai and enjoy this wonderful attraction.

Ideally, water-based activities are best suited for summers. However, Deep Dive Dubai can be visited at any time of the year as it is an enclosed and controlled facility.
