WOW! This was such an amazing experience! Dynamo was a fantastic host...he suggested we go drysuits instead of wetsuits, smart choice! The water was cold, expect that, it's Iceland. The drysuits keep you warm enough though - and trust me the views are absolutely worth...More

Our guide, Carlos/Dynamo, was professional and very helpful. It was cold out, but the wetsuits really do protect and keep you comfortable. Only my face was numb, and it wasn’t anything I couldn’t handle. I felt safe the whole time. The Silfa is beautiful.

We had a really great time snorkeling at Silfra with Carlos. He is informative, fun, and accommodating. We don’t regret choosing the wetsuit one bit. We also got lucky with the weather and were treated with an incredible sunset after the tour. This is an...More

Do this! You're snorkeling in a fissure between two continents!!! It's warmer, easier and more enjoyable than you could ever imagine. Carlos, our instructor, made it a relaxed, safe and fun experience. The drysuit, insulated pajama, gloves and hood are plenty of insulation from the...More
