The Deepest Swimming Pool in The World



Nemo 33 is a Recreational Diving Center in Brussels, Belgium. In here you would find the deepest swimming pool in the world, cause the pool consists of a submerged structure with flat platforms at various depth levels. The pool has two large flat-bottomed areas at depth levels of 5m (16 ft) and 10m (32 ft), and a large circular pit descending to a depth of 33m (108 ft). It is filled with 2,500,000 litres of non-chlorinated, highly filtered spring water maintained at 30 degree Celcius (86 degree Fahrenheit) and contains several simulated underwater caves at the 10m depth level.

There are numerous underwater windows that allow outside visitors to look into the pools at various depths. The complex was designed by Belgian diving expert John Beernaerts as a multi-purpose diving instruction, recreational, and film production facility, and opened in 2004.

You can only take a few items of your own dive kit (computer, mask, pool fins) but no BCD, fins that require booties, regulators (unless they have an integrated air linked to your computer, but no DIN fittings at all), torches, etc. You are not allowed to practice any skills unless you have an instructor in your group.

  6. [...] The pool is filled with 2.5 million gallons of water, and is kept disturbingly warm at 86 degrees of temperature. The coolest thing has to be the various simulated caves, and the silo like feature that goes to the very bottom. The pool is used for dive training. [My interesting files] [...]

  11. 108 feet, yeah thats super cool. I wish there was something like that here. Its like an underwater world or city. Too bad it’s in Belgium… no offence, that just meens I would have to take a major vacation to actually enjoy the experiance. Nemo 33 has got to be the top of the line spot for teaching a diving class. One of these days. Great photos as well, really made me wish I lived near by. Very very cool stuff, makes me wish I were a kid again.

  16. Oh god! My 17 yr old son went here with an instructor. My son, Ben is on a swim team and is very amazing at swimming. We visited Belgium during the 2009 Winter Break. It was really fun when we visited! Ben went down in the water caves and he said it was amazing. My 11 year old son, Matt got jealous ( I guess ) and he wanted to go swimming like Ben, but Matt was not on a swim team, nor had he ever taken lessons. Matt jumped in the pool, and had to be saved, because he was wearing no swim gear. A shirt, pants, no mask! A nice man named Arnondo who was wearing his swim gear dived in before Matt got deep and pulled him out. Matt was still upset, so when we got back home, out of Belgium, we took him to a regular 4 & 5 foot swimming pool in our hometown. Anyways, Ben had never been that deep, even when snorkling in Hawaii! Never take your child there if one of them can swim, and the other cannot. I luv my sons, but it made me upset when Matt almost killed himself. We were very upset with Matt, but we promised to get him ice cream and take him swimming in a regular pool. Benjamen was laughing at Matt and brought that incident up whenever he felt like it.

  19. Looks like a underwater city more like with all those visitor windows. Creepy with the deep pits and the caves too. I might go to belgium next year on the summer holidays. Very strange but interesting.
