INDIVIDUAL CHEESEBOARDS

To make your gathering even more fun, hand out wooden slabs to each person so they can build their own board!

Tip: Choose whole chunks of cheese and fun seasonal fruits (fresh + dried) like persimmons or stone fruit paired with nuts and lavender honey! You could even use these to incorporate other colors onto your tabletop display.

Birthday Bucketlist
Take a Plunge Into One of the World's Deepest Indoor Swimming Pool
Scout
by Scout

For the underwater lovers with an itch for adventure, celebrate your birthday 108-feet deep in the world’s deepest indoor swimming pool. Take the plunge at Nemo 33, explore the pool's underwater caves, and even get scuba diving certified. If flying solo does not tickle your fancy, get a group to join in the underwater festivities and dive into the depths together. 

To give us an even closer look, we parterned with Kevin Deldycke (videographer and diver) to share more about his personal experience diving with Nemo 33. 


Safety First in a Sea of Blue

Dive knowing that the only way to get into the deepest indoor swimming pool is safety first. With rules and procedures in place to create a safe diving and swimming environment, you can celebrate another year in good hands.

Hey Kevin! Tell us a little bit how you entered the world of diving.

My girlfriend and I felt at one point the urgency of exploring the world out there. One day we randomly chose a destination far far away, figuratively spinning a globe and prodding a finger at it. We ended up in Seychelles, and quickly realized there was as much to see under water as there was on land. So we enrolled in scuba diving lessons and got our first-level certification. We instantly both fell in love with the diverse and colorful environment the ocean offered us.

That was 5 years ago. What started as a simple side-activity of our holidays became the center and sole motivation of our far-away escapes. We now take any opportunity to dive deep into any waterbody, from atolls to ponds! But back home in Belgium, far from the ocean, how could we satisfy our thirst for the big blue? That's when we discovered a secret shared by all our fellow divers: Nemo 33.
