I went there mid of July 2022 for a SCUBA diving session. My last dive was 7 months ago at that time and I am still a beginner, but diving in the arctic tempted me. I had my doubts first about diving in the arctic as a beginner, but even with my meager experience, the dive shops instructors took great care of me :)

I rented all the equipment, which lead to a tad of a pricey experience, but given price levels in Norway it was still in line.
Introduction was fast and on point, the group was small (4 customers, diving instructor and another member of the shop‘s crew) and the equipment was in good shape.
We went out to the diving spot by boat and spent around 45min under water.
Saw tons of sea urchin, starfish, huge crabs and some eel. If you expect a biodiversity like in Thailand or Egypt, you might need to go dive somewhere else.

On the way back, Daniel (the shop owner) told us a bit about the history of the dive shop - it is located in a former shellfish processing plant.

Overall a great experience, also due to our amazing guides Quentin and Flora.

Would recommend and book again.

Fantastic experience! We had our first arctic diving experience as a family (3 teenagers, 2 adults) . The teenagers are Junior Open Water divers with just a few dives. Daniel managed to make this a real fun - explaining dry suit diving in 10 min. (much better then a 1 day extra licensing course we took a few years before in Germany). The dive was fun for all of us, we saw the arctic water world and just felt safe and good.

Went there for first time diver program. The instructor was a super nice guy with great jokes! We got along really well. He was also suoer precise and helpful, the tutorial we got there was more thorough compared to ones I’ve got in Malta or other countries.

That day their boat was broken and we had to drive to the diving site but they informed us about it and gave us a chance to cancel, so I think it was handled very professionally.

We were under water for around 40 minutes and saw crabs, fishes and other sealife. I really enjoyed the trip!

If i have to find something negative, their facility was a bit dull, just a garage type, but I’ve seen A LOT worse ones.

Overall i really enjoyed the experience and there is not much negative to say! Totally got what i expected!

We wanted to try diving for the first time and found the perfect place for it. Daniel explained everything to us before we even went on the boat very calmly and thoroughly and made sure we knew what to do, once we were in the water. We felt very safe during the whole time and enjoyed every second of the dive.
Thanks to Daniel and his wife for this really nice experience! I think we will have to come back at some point :)

We had a great time with. The instructor was very funny and sparked a good mood with everyone. He helped us scheduling a good day for the snorkeling. There were two options, either going in the morning or in the afternoon. When we arrived, he gave us detailed instructions and was very knowledgeable. Don’t worry about the water being too cold. They have various wetsuits and drysuits suitable for all kinds of different needs. When we went out with the boat, three more girls joined us who were doing the diving - so you can combine both, if one of you prefers diving over snorkeling. We had a great experience and saw beautiful marine life. We felt safe and well accommodated at all times. We can only recommend :-)
Cheers,
Chris and Jana

I had a two dive trip with Daniel and Quentin today, and it was really amazing! Beautiful kelp forest and remains of a boat wreck to mention some highlights. Daniel and Quentin were great instructors and I felt safe all the time. I tried dry suit for the first time and it was no problem with guidance from Daniel. They both did their best to give me a great experience, it really was a perfect birthday gift for my self :)

Very good day out diving. Wanted to dive the Artic Circle and Lofoten Diving are a very good company.
The dive guide was very patient and accommodating through out the day, nothing was to much trouble.
A very knowledgeable and informative dive briefing was given about the site and what to expect.
The dive itself was nice and relaxed and with out being rushed.
Nice site, lots of wildlife and a small fishing boat wreck to see on the dive.
Very good trip.
Will be back.

I did my first ever scuba dive with Daniel - he was patient, funny, encouraging, and made me feel so comfortable and safe! My friend is an avid scuba diver, so she went off with the more experienced group and also had such a great time. We were able to meet up underwater towards the end of the dive! Not only is the water crystal clear and not nearly as cold as you'd think, every part of the customer service was perfect! This is a bucket list activity and I couldn't recommend it enough!!!

Very friendly and professional staff! I did two dives, one with Tona and the next one with Daniel. I had my own gear, but the rental gear looked good quality and in good shape. Clear waters with good viz, plenty to see. My heartfelt recommendations to dive with these guys! 🙏🏼🇳🇴

we went on a first time diver trip for summer vacation. Our instructor Daniel was very professional and experienced, which made our dive very comfortable. We will definitely return next summer, and would strongly recommend it.
