My god.

I'm always amazed at their ability to put winidows down there. Imagine the pressure, and how f*cked an outside observer would be if the window decided to give way.

Would be a good place to learn to dive without going into the sea first.

Diving in the sea is always going to more fun though  Smile

It looks awesome in the top part with rooms and stuff. I don't really see the point in the well though, unless they have some stuff down there.

Why did they go with the square walls?

Would have been more intersting if they could have set it up like an artificial reef.

The entire pool is made for scuba divers or just plain divers. So the well just creates opportunity for a deeper descent.

Yeah, I understand that, but what's the fun in diving into a deep cylinder? If there at least were caves and stuff down there, I could understand.

None I guess, it's just to aclimatize you to being at such a depth. As a PADI registered Open Water diver the furthest I could dive to is 33m (108ft) the same as the pool. Although in reality the deepest I have been to is about 10m.

Open Water is only good to 18m.
Advanced Open Water is good to an absolute of 40m without instructor supervision, although more than 30 ft is not recommended.

I've got Open Water at the moment, deepest I've been is at least 18m.

I might take the advanced course in Spain this summer. I'm definatly going diving there anyway, just not sure if I want to spend the extra money yet.

I'm guessing it's simply for certification purposes. The deeper it is, the more advanced diver you are.

I figured it would be something like this, but if you dive that deep, usually there is a purpose (oil well repair for example). I guess they can always put stuff down there on the request of a company or something.

28 Sv2008 : It's 30m. Thats a normal depth for lesuire diving and not really that deep. You just need a higher qualification, but people mostly dive to that dept

35 Fumanchewd : I've only done holiday dives so I am interested but no expert. It says that no BCD's are allowed in the pool. Why would that be?
