On our local Ocean Diving tour we usually go to Garšur on the Reykjanes peninsula, which is our favorite Ocean dive site in the Reykjavik area.
It's an interesting dive site in many aspects.
On this tour we usually see a lot of marine life. It depends a bit on the time of year, but the kelp forrest offeres a great habitat for wolf fish, scorpion fish, different types of nudibranchs and crustaceans, plenty of different species of flatfish, monk fish and much more.
You can take the PADI Underwater Naturalist Specialty Course on this tour and learn more about the marine life in the North Atlantic.
Other PADI specialty course you can take on this tour are the PADI Dry Suit Diver Specialty Course or the PADI Digital Underwater Photographer Course.
As on all our tours, we will pick you up at your hotel in the Reykjavik area and bring you back afterwards and offer you some light snacks in the dive break.
The pick up time of this tour depends on the tides. We usually want to end our second dive around the peak of the high tide.
Note that ocean dives in Iceland depend on the weather and it can happen that scheduled ocean dive trips have to be canceled due to unfortunate weather conditions.
If that is the case we usually have a plan B and can offer you other dive sites, such as Bjarnagjį, Kleifarvatn or Silfra that do not depend on the weather as much.
