Would you dare dive the deepest pool in the world?
Here at Life of Riley, we like to expand your life experiences, deepen your enjoyment of living and....
Whoa! ... Let's just cut to the chase - Do you want to dive the deepest pool in the world?
Yes - you heard right THE DEEPEST POOL IN THE WORLD. YOU. and DIVING.
You see, outside Venice, where the Italians loved the water so much they built their city on top of the Venetian Lagoon, lies a 42-meter pool.
Hang on, we hear you cry... isn't an Olympic pool like, 50 metres long? Well, like so often, we're not talking about length, we're talking about depth. And the pool is called Deep Blue for a reason - it's 42-meters straight down!
But don't worry, we're not just going to throw you in at the deep end... yet; There's a lot to learn first!
Down, down, deeper and down...
Experienced divers, water babies and first-timers can enjoy Deep Joy's scuba courses and activities, but if you want to go deeper into this sport, you can learn to be a free-diver! World Champion Freediver, Andrea Zuccari will teach you everything you need to know about equalisation and apnea in his popular English workshop.
And after your lessons, it's time to dive. Down, down, deeper and down in complete comfort and safety as the therapeutic qualities of Deep Joy's 32°C thermal water mean you don't even need a wet-suit. And when you've descended Captain Nemo-like depth of 20,000 leagues under the sea, you will receive an achievement certification from Andrea. You can leave it on your mantlepiece until your friends notice... and then suggest they might want to call you Aquaman, King of Atlantis (or Mera, whose the queen).
Dinner, bed and breakfast are available at a plush nearby hotel, and free admission into the Thermal Spa is included in the room rate - as well as two aerosol treatments, inhalations or nasal showers with thermal water.
So come on, water ya waiting for? Dive in the deep end! (See what we did there?)
