This is the deepest pool in the world, with a pit section to about 100 feet depth.

that is friggin awesome to get used to the depths of scuba diving... now they just need to throw in more fishies
It looks like it's used as a diving training center? Cool stuff. You think they let people cannonball into it?
Looks like the one that NASA uses
Awesome. I figured the one that NASA had would be the deepest.
That'd be fun to go swimming in... You could play, "retrieve the ring off the bottom of the pool" and it'd take you an hour to get it
I was thinking it would be fun to throw pennies in it.
Wow! Some of those photos give me vertigo. Neat.
Better yet, grab someone's wallet or wedding ring and chuck it in there
I had a nightmare a few nights ago that I had a mission to walk on the bottom of the ocean....
talk about scary.
well thats freakin sweet.
probable THE cleanest water they'll ever dive into
Until someone pees in the pool.
I bet you're dreaming about cleaning that one, huh?
Why are there ladders in there?
so you can get to the bottom when its drained.
Needs a wreck in it to teach wreck diving.
DING DING DING! we have a winner!
The question is..... where do they drain it too
Molokini back wall was just about as clear.
Neighbor's parking lot?
Clean vs. clear. Mexico water=clear. But not clean.
it looks like a hole on a river that i fish a lot. the river is a limestone bottomed river and has various pot holes in it from underground springs. there is one hole in the river that we call the hole to china. i have run 105 foot long fly fine down it and it didnt seem to touch the bottom. the opening is only about 5x8 feet but man when you go over it in the boat all you can do is stare down it.
Whoops. Misread it as clear.
How Was the back wall... describe
Dropped in around the actual crater, and moved out into the current. Current made it a drift dive, so hardly any work. Max depth around 135 feet (at least that's what we were limited to). LOTS of sharks. Maybe 50 or 60 total on the dive, but not too close to us, unfortunately. Back wall is a little sparse in terms of coral growth, but it has a goodly amount of fish life and large animal life. Vis was around about 150-200 feet, incredibly. It was awesome looking down and seeing the bottom in 275 feet of water when you're at about 80 foot depth.
Wonder if I have any of the pictures on my computer...
The ocean creeps me out. Rather, the deep ocean. This pool would freak me out a little..
Makes me have to pee just looking at it...
I would rather have a 100 foot long snake run in my backyard down a slight grade varying in depths of 4 to 8 feet emptying out into a nice kidney shaped pool.
we've got a couple of those around the Greater Denver area.
That looks like a flooded missle sylo to me. Check out the built in underwater cave, where do you think that thing take you. Also anybody know where this thing is, I'd like to check it ou.
Worst game of Marco Polo - EVER.
They should have put in an escalator instead of those crummy ladders.
A 100' drop to flat is now possible!
ya, that would really suck to have to clean that thing, imagine how much clorine it takes!
A human aquarium.
Best Post - EVER
How many people on this board are avid SCUBA divers anyway?
The place I got the most vertigo underwater was in this place in Missouri called Bonne Terre mine - literally almost infinite visibility, 1000+ ft., large underground caverns that are about 500-600 feet deep off the dock you jump in off of, and you can see straight down to the bottom where there lies all kinds of stuff people have dropped when they jumped in (fins, lights, etc.). It's basically a subterranean lake with the above ground held up by massive pillars that were mined around. There's even a little underwater town with a bar and a theater that was built for the miners way back in the day. It's pretty dark down there (plus cold - constant 53 degrees) which only adds to the intense vertigo. If any of you divers are in the Midwest at any point, it is VERY worth it to check that place out.
The part that creeped me out the most was the clearly visible faultline of the New Madrid that runs right overhead of the walkway to the dock. You can see about 3-4 feet of translational displacement along a large crack.
yea, i got 3 of those.
Have any pics of this, sounds very nice. I allways wanted to go scuba under the ice caps in Antartica, but not haveing any scuba experiance that would be hard to do.
Any pictures available you could find online somewhere. They don't allow any cameras in the water for some reason which now escapes me. Same with dive lights, which is really odd since it is kinda dark down there. Only the dive leader who works for the dive outfit is allowed to have one.
