Dive Bahrain, the world’s largest underwater theme park, is set to have even more elements added to it, it has been announced.
The attraction, which will be 100,000 sq m once complete, features a submerged 70 m long Boeing 747, which is covered in coral since being sunk in June.
Other planned features include a replica of a traditional Bahraini pearl merchant’s house and sunken ships.
Following damage to the site caused by illegal shrimp-trawling vessels, Dive Bahrain has announced plans to add even more elements “bolstering the uniqueness of Dive Bahrain's offering and, of course, expanding the potential habitats for marine life”.
A Dive Bahrain spokesperson said, “The enormously positive response Dive Bahrain has received, locally, regionally and internationally, had already accelerated work on the other pre-planned elements of the dive park including a replica of a traditional pearl merchant’s house, sunken ships and sail structures.”
Professional divers from more than 50 countries have visited Dive Bahrain since the underwater theme park opened in September 2019.
