Description:

On this Iceland diving tour you will explore four main parts of Silfra fissure. You will float 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 Þingvallavatn. You will often be able to see the rising bubbles ‘chandelier effect’. We finish the dive in the stunning visibility of the Silfra Lagoon. 

Your travel starts when we pick you up from your accommodation or hotel in Reykjavík city. The drive to Þingvellir National Park is around 40 minutes, during your guide will educate you about the history of Silfra and unique geological surrounding of Þingvellir area. When you arrive at the Silfra fissure, your guide will provide you with a detailed briefing of the dive site and essential aspects of dry suit diving.

This tour includes two dives. 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. Each 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.
