Sunken Boeing 747 becomes centrepiece of Dive Bahrain

Dive Bahrain is now open to diving enthusiasts.

The site, in close proximity to Bahrain International Airport, has a 70-metre-long decommissioned Boeing 747 as its centrepiece, the largest aircraft ever to be intentionally submerged.

The project was developed in close cooperation between the Bahrain Tourism & Exhibitions Authority.

Dive Bahrain aims to provide visitors with the opportunity to enjoy a unique diving experience within a large area.

In addition to the Boeing 747, the newly opened underwater theme park will feature a replica of a traditional Bahraini pearl merchant’s house, which is being overseen by Diyar Al Muharraq, artificial coral reefs and other sculptures that will be fabricated and submerged to provide a safe haven for coral reef growth and to ensure a sustainable habitat for marine life.

The eco-friendly park will also provide researchers a rich source of information on marine ecologies, and will enhance environmental awareness on the importance of preserving marine life.
