There are a number of reasons and circumstances where it makes sense to book a private tour rather than taking part in a regular tour. Even though on all Diving or Snorkeling tours our rule is to have a maximum ratio of 3 divers or 6 snorkelers per guide, you might already be a group of 2 or 4 people who would want to do that day tour without other participants…This could be because you are a photographer and want to have more freedom to stay longer at certain areas to take the perfect shot and use your guide as a model. Or for a romantic occasion such as a proposal and you wish to have a more intimate setting, or for a large group requiring a different pick-up time. Whatever it be: We are happy to accommodate you.

Those of us who work in the office also take particular joy in helping to think of ways to make anniversaries, birthdays, and other special occasions even more memorable. Don’t hesitate to let us know if you are thinking of celebrating such an event in Silfra or other locations.! Also, if you are a dive club or a group of divers who would like to come on a very specific time and do a very specific Dive Expedition or Multiple Day Dive Tour, it would be our pleasure to help you make it come true. Please don´t hesitate to contact us at: info@cometoiceland and see what we can do for you.
