Itinerary

Information

Start this diving adventure at Gardur diving site, located on the Reykjanes peninsula. Gardur is crawling with unique marine wildlife. You have a good chance of seeing wolffish, known for their eccentric looks, as well as adorable lumpcukers. Swim alongside schooling fish, sense the power of the ocean, and celebrate the end of your first dive with hot chocolate and cookies.

You will then proceed to explore the depths of the Atlantic Ocean at Bjarnagja tectonic fissure. This dive site, historically an old crab hatchery, is known as a place where saltwater and freshwater mix. Glide around submerged caverns and a mysterious shipwreck. You’ll come back with a handful of memories everyone will be interested to hear about!
