Description:

Diving Silfra Iceland tour with one guided dive. Your guide will assist you in setting up your dive equipment. We only use high quality Buddy and BARE brand SCUBA equipment and APEX regulators. Dive will take around 30-40 minutes with a maximum depth of 18 meters. Nevertheless, if the outside temperature drops below 0°C in the winter, we conduct only one extended (40-45 minute) dive. This is done for the safety and comfort of our divers. Don’t hesitate to ask your guide or let them know if you need some further assistance with your diving gear.

What to expect? You will explore four main parts of Silfra fissure. We start by floating through Silfra’s narrowest section “Big Crack”, where you have the option of having your photo taken. As the fissure widens you find yourself in the magical Silfra Hall where ducks and geese are frequently paddling overhead. We next enter the Silfra Cathedral, near to the opening to Thingvallavatn. You will often be able to see the rising bubbles ‘chandelier effect’. We finish the dive in the stunning visibility of the Silfra Lagoon. 

Travel tip: SCUBA dive certification card (PADI Open Water or equivalent) is required to be able to participate.
