OMGoddess what an amazing experience. Our guide Robert got us geared up and prepared us for a lifetime opportunity to swim in COLD freshwater with deep visibility and blues and greens and browns that was stunning to witness. Robert helped me laugh through my fear of the cold

Snorkeling in Silfra Fissure was one of the highlights of our trip for sure. The water is so clear, you can see everything around you like you're above water. Our guide Steve was awesome and helped make our experience great. He was attentive and helpful, and interested in where

This was such a great experience, seeing the fissure from that perspective was just incredible. Our tour guide, Steve, was very helpful, funny, and organized. Everything with him was done quick and he hustled us so we could go first which was definitely worth it. Would

In my day job I'm a geologist, so this dive has been on my bucket list a long time. In order to be competent and comfortable on this dive I completed the SSI Dry Suit diving specialty before going to Iceland. I booked the Silfra dive with Arctic Adventures, and that was a

Dear zeke1177, Thank you very much for leaving this review, it made us very happy to read this! Silfra is a fascinating environment for most anyone, but for a geologist this continental fissure is an absolute treasure. You certainly went a long way in getting a dry suit certification specifically for this dive, and it is very good to hear that you feel it was all worth it. We certainly loved to welcome you on our tour! In an environment like this a more experienced and well prepared driver will have an easier time in enjoying the tour than a beginner, but as long as they hold a dry suit certification or a minimum of 10 logged dry-suit dives, anyone is welcome on this tour. Otherwise, we agree with you that the snorkeling tour is a great alternative! We do hope you will get a chance to spend some more time in Iceland in the future, this country holds so many interesting places for geologists and we would love to show you some more of them! All the best, Arctic Adventures
