Don't confuse snorkeling with diving

I booked a snorkel tour. From the pictures it shows people touching the tectonic plates, you can not do this from snorkeling. You can get pictures if you from the top of the... read more

I booked a snorkel tour. From the pictures it shows people touching the tectonic plates, you can not do this from snorkeling. You can get pictures if you from the top of the water, but you need to have a friend take them. I would recommend a disposable water proof camera. Everyone that had waterproof carries had leaks. It was... More

Bulky dry suit kept us warm and buoyant in extremely cold water. Colors of rock vibrant. Recommend the extremely different experience.

You have to do this. I was freaked out about the freezing cold for weeks before. The day I went, in December, it was sleeting and windy. It was freezing as we stripped down to our long underwear to get into our wet suits. These suits make you feel like the Pillsbury dough boy as you waddle down to the... More

A once in a lifetime experience for sure. AJ (our instructor) was awesome - would recommend highly for anyone who enjoys exploring under water.

i was prodded by a friend. The dry suit is kinda scary and when they put the hood over your head you may have a panic attack as you feel tense with sense of suffocation. You go on a walk to the water. You slowly go in and see a crevice which they tell you Europe and the Americas divided... More

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.
