Westfjords Dive Expedition

Dive the sublime

Explore and discover Iceland's Westfjords

The Westfjords area is the most remote and sparsely populated part of Iceland.  It is characterized by dramatic fjords and towering angular cliffs rising sharply from the sea. In October 2010 six of our instructors got together for an expedition to this remarkable area.  Although we had five days for exploring, we feel that we hardly scratched the surface in terms of all of the undiscovered dive sites that we have researched and have heard others speculate about.

Still, the dives we did were amazing.  Astounding walls, diving with seals, a whale graveyard, a large ancient wreck and many other, as of yet, unexplored wrecks.   On the 2015 expedition, about half of our dives will be dedicated to discovering new dive sites.  We also look very much forward to revisiting the Westfjords and showing you the highlights of what we found in 2010.  On land we will see many of the unique sights of this area of Iceland, including endless mountains and fjords, lovely waterfalls, some of the world’s largest bird cliffs at Europe’s western-most point, picturesque little villages, deserted farms, and whaling stations that stimulate your imagination of forgotten times.

Frequently asked Questions

What size / type of SCUBA tanks do you use?
We use steel tanks due to better buoyancy properties. We use both 12 liter and 15 liter bottles. We can also offer both single and double valves. Please let us know in advance which tank configuration you require for the equipment you bring, so we can have it ready for you.
What type of valve/fittings do you have on your SCUBA tanks?
All our tanks have DIN fittings. If you bring a regulator with a Yoke fitting, also known as INT, we can bring an adapter to screw into our DIN valve. Please let us know in advance.
