Cold but you can survive!

I hate the cold. I know when it's less than 25C when I'm walking outside, so this was challenging for me. You arrive, get briefed out in the open overlooking silfra. Was shivering and thinking and I must still get in the water? We wore a layer of thermals and were given a thick onesy to put on then squeezed... More

Keen to take part in this as something different to do in Iceland. All in all really good. Getting kitted out in the dry suits didn't feel like it took a long time and the staff were really helpful. The only downside we had was with regards to pick up. The hotel we were staying in was en route to... More

If you want to do something unforgettable, I'd recommend snorkeling with Dive.is Tho it's not cheap, same as the rest of the touristattractions in Iceland. The struggle into your drysuit is worth the uncomfort, because otherwise you'll get cold. As the water is icecold! You'll forget about every uncomfort, the moment you see the beauty under water. The supervisors are... More

I guess as a once in a lifetime opportunity to swim between 2 continents, one should not pass up this opportunity. And so it was on my bucket list to swim not only between the 2 tectonic plates but also some of the CLEAREST and CLEANEST waters in the world. I know many have waxed lyrical of how magical the...

The people of the Silfra diving team were very nice and absolutely hilarious. Had a wonderful time snorkeling in the clearest water you'll ever see, hardly noticed the cold (ok, maybe a little). Special shoutout to Fey, very efficient.

Went snorkeling in the 2C water and absolutely was worth it. Its an experience that you want to try once getting to snorkel in between 2 plates with numb lips and fingers.. :) the water was crystal clear with a visibility of up to 100m and so pure filtered by the volcanic rocks. only downside was the time taken to...

Snorkeling in glacial run-off that's maybe 3C? My hands and face will be wet and cold? Is that worth paying for? ABSOLUTELY Our tour guides, Dan and Adrian, were funny, easy to find, and told us all about the area both before and during the snorkel. Dan was our main tour guide and helped us put on our gear and... More

I can see why people think it is amazing but as an experience and from feedbacks of our group snorkelling was just average. Half of our group dived and the other snorkelled with some of them dived prior to this experience. We all agreed that the cold water although not necessarily nice feeling is great experience but we found it... More

I was a bit hesitant about this trip as I have snorkelled around the world and knew this would be a totally different experience.....firstly being very cold!! When we arrived we took a bit of time to get geared up, we were fully clothed and then put a boiler suit type of gown on followed by a dry suit, I... More
