Pools I Want to Swim In (Part 2)

This is the second part of my post on pools that I want to swim in. You can see the original post here.

5. Icebergs at the Bondi Lifesaving Club, Sydney

This is such a great place. Again, one that I have actually swum in, but it still has to make a list of great pools.

6.San Alfonso Del Mar Pool, Chile

Not one to swim in, more one to kayak on and sail on. This pool has 66 million gallons of water over around 20 acres and is the world’s largest pool. It is 105 feet deep at its deepest.

7. Nemo 33, Belgium

… but at 115 feet, its still not the deepest pool. This is. The Nemo 33 in Brussels is a staggering 108 feet deep, with built in underwater caves.

8. Actually its a tie for swimming with stuff for the Tank in Las Vegas and Crocosaurus Cove, Darwin Australia

Lots of fish, including 16 types of sharks, and you get to whizz by it all in 8 seconds through a tube that is fully enclosed by the water and hungry marine life.

Or go one better and actually immerse yourself with critters. In this case, Australia of course (Where else). No bars. Just you, the croc (mate) and a bit of glass.
