Rummu, Diving

Rummu is a flooded quarry in the northern Estonia, not far from tourist-beloved Tallin. The idea to visit it and see its depths came from our dive master which once visited the place and was impressed by the views as much as the prices to make a dive. The answer was easy "yes" and the company has departed.

We arrived to our camp place late at night. There is no cities nearby, so the sky was full of diamonds of all the shapes and sizes.

We arrived to a quarry at 8.30, waiting for diving equipment to arrive. The air was wet, so all the spider webs looked really bright.

It's an old prison there. Part of it is flooded, which makes it a great place to visit underwater.

The water is clear, though in the shadows it's quite a trick to see anything without a light source - except the almighty sun.

Quite surprisingly, there was almost no fishes. It's a shame - the views with a lot of flying silver bodies underwater would get really breathtaking. Hope it changes soon.
