Finding Nemo

Look no further, Nemo has been found. Nemo 33 to be precise. This has been bubbling on the surface for a while (pun intended), and would be a fantastic experience to try. 

"The Nemo 33 is a 2,500,000 liter multi-level swimming pool filled with chlorine-free, potable spring water heated to a cozy 86 degrees F. The pool structure flattens out at depths of 5 and 10 meters to feature simulated underwater caves. Dry visitors are afforded port holes at both these depths to explore the terrain before they dive."

" ...the only accident to occur in Nemo 33 happened when a Belgian Special Forces member punctured both his lungs after failing to observe the prescribed ascent rate"  Ouch.

I couldn't imagine going there every weekend for a dive. Too much like going to Guildy or Stoney. One visit and you've seen it all. Plus I think the pee factor here would be quite high....

Look out below!
The video clip is entertaining as well, just purely from the fact that the diver sounds like he's running a marathon underwater. His SAC rate has to be through the roof.

If anyone's been here, let me know what you thought....
