Highlights

  • Small Group Experience
  • Scuba Diving In Iceland
  • Five Unique Diving Locations
  • Over 100m Underwater Visibility

This is your chance to go off the beaten path when it comes to diving in Iceland. Try out one of these lesser-known yet spectacular dive sites:

  • Garður - with over 40 species of algae, schooling fish, and ocean pinnacles inhabited by various creatures, this dive site is heaven for every marine life enthusiast (see the map).
  • Davíðsgjá (David’s Crack) - the sibling of the world-famous Silfra fissure, Davíðsgjá features incredible 100-meter underwater visibility and the occasional trout (see the map).
  • Bjarnagjá - saltwater and fresh groundwater meet in this tectonic ravine. Dive near an old crab hatchery and spot a shipwreck (see the map).
  • Fisherman’s crack - situated on the edge of lake Þingvallavatn, this dive lets you see multiple ravines and marine wildlife (see the map).
  • Kleifarvatn - nestled within black-sand beaches and imposing lava cliffs, this lake has hot springs underneath it. Geothermal activity is guaranteed during this dive (see the map).

Whichever diving location you choose, you’re sure to marvel at the underwater wonders hiding there. Our professional guides will ensure top level safety and hot chocolate afterwards.

The pickup from Reykjavik takes place at 8.30am from one of our Reykjavik pickup locations.

Should you choose to meet on location, the details will be communicated to you closer to your booking date. You can expect to meet your guide at the agreed location at approximately 10am.

You will then receive safety instructions and familiarize yourself with your diving gear.

The dive itself usually lasts anywhere between an hour and an hour and a half.

We’ll celebrate the experience with hot chocolate and cookies, after which you will log your dives, pack up and return to Reykjavik anywhere between 12.30-1pm if you choose to return with us.

  • PADI Open Water diver certification (or higher)
  • Drysuit certification or a minimum of 10 logged dry suit dives

  • Proof of certification or logbook (your guide will check the documents in the beginning of the tour). 

Other requirements:

All divers have to supply their height/weight upon booking to ensure we bring you suitable equipment. For safety reasons, all divers need to understand instructions in English and be able to communicate with the dive guide in English.
