Most Amazing Under Water Structures In Existence
For all the nightlife lovers, you can enjoy the fun of nightclubs in an ultimate style now. Enjoy your night deep inside the ocean at an Under Water Night Club situated in Dubai.
#9 Red Sea Star Restaurant / Nymphas Show Bar
This brilliant structure is a part of Israel. Those wishing to visit the unique building simply had to cross over a small bridge and descend down a small flight of stairs, allowing you to eat and drink with a distinctive view of the ocean floor. At some point though, it shut down and became a strip club, complete with poles for dancers to work on, but that also didn't work out as the facility was discovered in 2013 by marine biologist Gil Koplovitz, completely abandoned. It's still unclear exactly when the business closed its doors and why an underwater strip club wasn't a huge success.
Marine lab is a boon for scientists. This is essentially a large underwater facility that acts as a research center for scientists, as well as a classroom for students and teachers. It has been in operation since 1984, making it the longest serving underwater habitat and is located near Jules' Undersea Lodge. It is in almost continuous use thanks to the fact it can support a small number of people for extended periods and because of its extensive features, such as a wet-room, observation sphere and laboratory.
#7 Shanghai Ocean Aquarium
As the name suggests, this underwater wonder is located in China. Located in the one of China’s biggest and most popular cities, the Shanghai Ocean Aquarium was designed and built by Advanced Aquarium Technologies. It includes fish and other marine life from all of the major continents and also hosts several rare animals that are unique to China, with the different areas separated off from the others so that they can have their own distinct atmospheres. The highlight, and main part of the aquarium, is a viewing tunnel that stretches almost 400-feet that is entirely underwater.
#6 Sea.Fire.Salt.Sky. Restaurant
Ummmm yes, no mistakes here, its Sea.Fire.Salt.Sky. Restaurant. This is an incredible underwater structure in the Maldives comes in the form of the acclaimed restaurant, Sea.Fire.Salt.Sky. that is made up of four different floors. Each floor has a distinctive theme and atmosphere taken from the name of the restaurant, with the Sky floor located on the roof and the Sea floor underwater. With elegant decor and glass walls showing the ocean wildlife, the restaurant is able to cater for a large number of people.
#5 Cancun Underwater Museum
This is indeed one of the best things you will see in your lifetime. The brainchild of Marine Park Director Jaime Gonzalez Canto and sculptor Jason deCaires Taylor, the Cancun Underwater Museum is a collection of more than 400 sculptures resting on the seafloor. The pieces of art, which depict a variety of different themes, are taken to the bottom of the water using a specially designed lift. While the attraction certainly provides something for divers to look at and appreciate when they are underwater, the main aim of the museum was in fact to help promote and protect the coral reefs off the coast of Mexico.
#4 Aquarius Reef Base
The Aquarius Reef Base is an underwater laboratory that sits on the ocean floor some 62 feet below sea level off the coast of Florida. This place is actually amazing and forces you to think about its construction. Filled with research equipment and computers, it was built in 1986 and designed to allow marine biologists and other scientists to explore the coral reef and investigate the plant life and animals that live there. What makes the Aquarius Reef Base so special though is that it allows researchers to use a special diving technique known as saturation diving, meaning that they can remain underwater without returning to the surface for extended periods.
#3 Ithaa Undersea Restaurant
A restaurant underwater is definitely not less than a treat. Located in the Maldives, the Ithaa Undersea Restaurant is one of the only underwater restaurants in the world. Built in 2005 to accompany the nearby HOTEL, Ithaa was designed by M. J, Murphy and fully completed in 2005. It offers meals for both lunch and dinner, as well as the ability to hire it out as a function room for special occasions, but its biggest attraction is its all glass tunnel-like construction that gives a constant 270* panoramic view of the surrounding marine life.
#2 Poseidon Undersea Resort
So this time, an under sea resort. The Poseidon Undersea Resort is another project developed by US Submarine Structures. The initial concept was for it to be the first completely submerged underwater HOTEL, featuring a restaurant, bar, library, conference and function rooms, along with a spa, swimming pool and even a wedding chapel. Despite having more than 150,000 expressing interest in taking up reservations and the fact that it was supposed to open in 2008, THE HOTEL off the coast of Fiji is still not complete.
#1 Jules Undersea Lodge
And finally in the list we have a lodge that you would love to stay in. This underwater HOTEL is the only one of its kind in the United States. Built in the 1970s, the structure was originally a submerged marine lab called La Chalupa and was operated by Ian Koblick. It contains two bedrooms, a bath and some living space, providing a unique experience. Because it is completely underwater, those wishing to stay in the lodge must be PADI certified as they must scuba dive to the building. Also, 24-hour staff can provide a variety of services, including having a chef scuba dive down to prepare a meal or having surprise chocolates or flowers delivered.
