Deepest pool in the world
Feel like doing some deep scuba diving without visiting an ocean? Then go take a trip to Nemo 33, the deepest pool in the world.
Located in Brussels, this swimming pool is perfect for learning how to dive or for fine-tuning your skills before you hit the deep ocean. It’s 105 feet (33 meters) deep with 2.5 million liters of chlorine-free warm water. But the pool isn’t just used for practice; it’s also a tourist attraction. Everyone is welcome to test dive with instructors who will provide training if you are a beginner.
Created by Belgian civil engineer John Beernaerts 13 years ago, when he was sitting in a bar and started drawing on a napkin. The sketch amazed him, he envisioned a giant indoor diving complex, full of underwater tunnels and chambers.
The pool temperature is 33 degrees Celsius (91 degrees F) to mimic the temperatures of a deep dive in the Caribbean. Since 2004, 100,000 visitors dove in the pool, all are still alive.
