I arrived in Dnipropetrovsk with nearly 3,000km showing since leaving Sharm el Sheikh. It is a large city but with a population of one million not as big as Kiev. I met up with old friends Max, Philip and Julia. We had done many diving trips together in the Red Sea, usually filming and tech diving for a media company. The next day, a friend of theirs, Alex, was heading out of town to a new dive site that had been discovered just three years earlier by Sergey Ivchenko. Sergey and his friends were checking out Google maps and researching the possibility that certain patches of water located out of town may be deep and clear enough for decent scuba diving. Pyatikhatky was just such a site and is now popular for divers who travel 130km from the city to this amazing quarry dive.
