Videos of the deepest dive pool in the world, situated in Dubai have gone viral after a video was shared on Instagram by Dubai's Crown Prince Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum. On June 27, Guinness World Records certified the pool as 'the deepest swimming pool for diving'.

"An entire world awaits you at @deepdivedubai the world’s deepest pool, with a depth of 60 meters (196 feet) #Dubai," Crown Prince Rashid Al Maktoum wrote along with the video.

With a staggering depth of 196 feet (60 metres), the pool is part of the new Deep Dive Dubai tourist attraction in a city that already houses the world's tallest building and the world's largest mall. It has broken the record of Poland's Deepspot, which has a depth of over 45 meters.

On its website, Deep Dive Dubai describes the pool as a 'world-record breaking facility', one which is 15 meters deeper and four times bigger than any other diving pool in the world.

The Deep Dive Dubai pool is filled with 14 million liters of fresh water, the volume of six Olympic-sized swimming pools and is at least four times bigger than any other diving pool in the world. 

Water temperature is maintained at 30 degrees Celsius (86 degrees Fahrenheit), a comfortable temperature for wearing a thin wetsuit or a swimsuit. 

The facility is open by invitation only for now but will open to the public later this year.
