Trip report:


Ordinskaya Caves – September 2013

The Ordinskaya Caves, Orda for short, are world famous for their incredible visibility and unforgettable scenery. Orda is the world’s largest underwater gypsum cave and the longest underwater cave in Russia. Orda is located near the Ural mountain range and is reachable by couple of hours car ride from the nearest airports.

The “H20 VIVA!” subchapter of the diving club “Sukellusseura H2O ry” arranged a dive trip to Ordinskaya in September 2013. Four divers attended this trip. Each of us used one NLS Supernova Mini video light. All scenes were lit artificially since there is no natural light. The following pictures are frame grabs from 8-bit HD video.
