Book the Tectonic Diving day tour to combine the two most sought-after diving locations in Iceland. Silfra and Davíðsgjá, famous for incredible underwater visibility, are both included in this one-day diving adventure.
Starting at the famous Silfra fissure, where you’ll see shades of water you didn’t know existed, you’ll proceed to dive in Davíðsgjá, also known as David’s Crack. The glacial meltwater filters through lava formations and becomes so clear you can see approximately 100m in all directions.
This dive tour is your once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to float between two continents. You’ll begin your tour diving in Silfra fissure, which is famous for marking the end of the Eurasian and the beginning of the North American tectonic plates. At points, the crack gets so narrow that you’ll be able to touch both at the same time!
The water temperature at Silfra is consistent throughout the year and measures 2-4°C (36-40°F), while David’s Crack is usually a bit warmer. The underwater visibility there depends more on the weather than when diving at Silfra. Your dive at Davíðsgjá may also be accompanied by local trout!
Meeting your guide: Walk 400m back along the road until you reach a smaller car park with all the snorkel and dive vans, and look for your guide. Please make sure you are ready to meet your guide at Silfra car park 15 minutes before the beginning of your tour.
For those who choose to be picked up from Reykjavík, we will arrange pickup details together when you email email@example.com and request to book this tour. The pickup is usually scheduled approximately an hour and a half before the beginning of the tour.
