Three of along with three others and an awesome guide Denise ventured the beautiful pure clean blue water. I had a bit of trouble and Denise made me feel so comfortable that I truly had a blast. Thank you Denise

This was an amazing experience! The tour is a few hours, but you are actually in the water only 30-40min. It is a little deceiving, because while you are technically swimming between two tectonic plates, the plates are about 5k apart, so when you're swimming,...More

This tour was incredible and I call it "once in a lifetime" because i'm so glad I did it and would never want to do it again. The combination of the gear that you have to wear is a bit claustrophobic and you're in it...More

Snorkeling at Silfra was an amazing experience. I truly felt as if I was floating between two tectonic plates. Looking at the rocks beneath you was awe inspiring. Ants was a great guide too!

The snorkeling trip with Troll was an absolute highlight and our guide (dimitris) was amazing. Super knowledgeable, friendly and had our safety as his number 1 concern. I would recommend this trip over and over.

This was a really cool snorkeling trip. The water is so clear that you can see everything. Don't worry about the cold, the dry suits keep you warm enough. Very worthwhile excursion.
