Experience Silfra and more with us!
Diving and snorkeling is what we love
Our company was founded in 1997 to provide sport diving education and training to the Reykjavík population. We soon began taking both local and visiting divers to Silfra, one of our favorite dive sites near Reykjavík. We loved sharing this incredible site with our friends, old and new. Through our promotion and by word of mouth, Silfra became an internationally renowned dive site. We are proud to set the industry standards for diving and snorkeling operations at Silfra and in Iceland more broadly. Our team members at DIVE.IS are sustained and motivated by a sincere love and respect for Icelandic nature, the underwater world, and each other. It gives us great joy to be able to continue sharing our favorite experiences with our friends and guests.
Diving Day Tours
You will be mesmerized by unparalleled visibility between tectonic plates in the famous Silfra fissure. You can also join us for a dive tour of the nearby sites we love, such as in the bubbling geothermal lake Kleifarvatn on the mid-Atlantic ridge or off of the stunning Icelandic coast in the north Atlantic Ocean .

Padi instructor development course in iceland
19.09.2017 We are very excited to be planning two Instructor Development Courses in 2018, our normal October one and for the first time ever one in April as well. Our Spring IDC will be held 16th to 23rd April and will include a special dive trip to Silfra, Strytan and perhaps a few other secret spots as well, specially put together for our candidates. We have had an overwhelming response to our announcements for this IDC and have already got 7 candidates, one a local Icelandic guide and the other 6 from all over the world who will also be joining us as part of our summer staff team. We are looking forward to introducing these candidates, not only to the joys of teaching, but also, for some of them, to the world of drysuit diving and of course to the fantastic nature and culture of Iceland! During this fun-filled course, the candidates will be learning from our Course Director, Anders Holmberg from Fantasea Diving in Sweden, as well as our inhouse Master Instructors and IDC Staff Instructors. The course will include pool sessions, classroom sessions and open water dives, during which they will learn to teach all aspects of diving courses from Discover Scuba, all the way through to Divemaster. It is an intense action packed week, but everyone always has a blast! There are still spaces available if there are any Divemasters out there who would like to join us.

Donation to the blue army
14.09.2017 Here at DIVE.IS we truly care about our environment. So it was our pleasure to support our friends at The Blue Army with our annual donation to them. The Blue Army is a non-profit organisation that works to clean plastic and other debris from the Icelandic shoreline. In addition to the hard work of removing trash from the beaches and water surrounding Iceland, The Blue Army aims to educate the public about the importance of environmental action and changes we can all make in our daily lives to make a difference. This picture was captured when our General Manager handed this year's donation to Tómas Knútsson, the founder of The Blue Army. We want to take this opportunity to thank The Blue Army for the incredible work they do!!
Every couple of months or if something interesting is happending in the Icelandic world of diving and snorkeling, we send out a newsletter.
