Indoor diving centre Seafari


Indoor underwater world


Seafari is the first indoor diving and snorkelling centre in the Netherlands, where you can go diving and snorkelling in comfortable conditions all year long.


Seafari has a circular diving pool 30 m in diameter and 12 m deep. Different routes lead divers past rock formations and other special objects. The pool is a freshwater biotope with a whole range of plants and a modest number of animals. Besides the diving pool, there are food and drink facilities, instruction rooms and a diving shop.


The design provides extensive opportunities for the use of alternative and renewable energy, sustainable materials and the (re-)use of rainwater. The ambition is to have a building that generates, recycles and stores energy.
