Diving Overview for Belgium
Belgium is most famous for its great food, beer and of course chocolate!
Diving opportunities are limited in Belgium as it has only 66.5km of coastline leading to the North Sea, however there are some good cold water dives, several quarries and the famous Nemo 33.
There is some good coastal diving in the North Sea however this is very weather dependent as there are no sheltered sites and currents can be strong. For experienced divers there are some great wrecks to explore and some sites around Neuport-Oostende. Many divers also head over to Zeeland, technically in Holland, which also has some inland quarry sites to explore.
Nemo 33 is the world’s largest scuba diving pool with several platforms and a large circular pit descending to 33m! The pool it filled with pure spring water and kept at 30°C, there are some simulated caves you can explore and external windows so you can wave at passers by. The pool was opened in 2004 as a teaching and film production facility and is a unique experience if you’re looking for some diving fun.
If you are diving at Nemo, you are required to use their own kit (not your own except for mask and computer) to avoid any external contaminants from entering the pool. If you are diving in the North Sea expect cold water (usually dry suits are required), limited visibility and some currents.
