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.
Silfra is famous for good reason: the basalt-filtered water is the clearest water on earth and trickles into a crack between two continental plates. Divers and snorkelers travel from all over the world to experience the absolutely unique underwater world of Silfra.
Feel what it is like to fly in the endless visibility of a lava fissure ripped open by earthquakes! With glacial water temperature just above freezing, snorkeling in the Silfra crack is a truly Icelandic adventure. You can also combine the Snorkeling Silfra Day Tour with other great activities and sightseeing opportunities in the area, such as the Golden Circle.
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 .
Multiple Day Tours & Dive Expeditions
We will take you off the beaten path and travel through Iceland’s spectacular nature to the amazing dive sites all over Iceland. The Strýtan hydrothermal chimneys in a northern fjord, a shipwreck in the east, and a hidden crater in the interior are all possible on our Multiple Day Dive Tours and Dive Expeditions.

DIVE.IS receives PADI Green Star Award
We are thrilled to share that DIVE.IS has received PADI’s GreenStar award!
PADI’s GreenStar award program was developed as a way to track, measure, and modify the ecological footprint of PADI Dive Centers and Dive Resorts. In order to receive a PADI GreenStar award, Dive Centers must fulfil a number of requirements across several categories.
For instance, a Dive Center gains points toward an award by ensuring good practices in water conservation, energy use, transportation, and waste management. The award program encourages Dive Centers to go green and show leadership in conservation. We work closely with the natural environment and are reminded every time we plunge into the water how important it is for us to protect our ecosystem. We hope you’ll join us in doing everything possible to conserve and protect the environment!
We have successfully finished our first Instructor Development Course of the year. It was up to our very good friend and PADI Course Director Anders Holmberg from Fantasea Diving in Sweden to shape our candidates into IDC instructors in an intense, action-packed, but fun week. He had was joined by our very talented in-house Master Instructor Siobhan White.
Our candidates, had an action-packed week which included pool sessions, classroom sessions and open water dives, during which they learned to teach all aspects of diving courses all the way through to Divemaster!
Our candidates, Andi, Denise, Einar, Fabienne, Mario and Ramiro were absolutely amazing, very skilled and true naturals! We now have the privilege of having them join our DIVE.IS staff team for the summer as instructors & guides and have they been a valuable addition to our team.
The IDC was concluded with a special drive trip hosted by our good friends in the North, Erlendur and Sævör. The now graduated instructors were joined by our Managing Director Tobias Klose and PADI’s Reigonal Manager, Kjell Evensen. The group got to dive the famous hydrothermal chimney, Strýtan, the only hydrothermal chimney shallow enough to dive to . We want to give a special thank you to Erlendur and Sævör for hosting us and showing us a great time. And finally, a big congratulation to our graduated IDC students!
Our second IDC of the year will be held from the 28th of September – 14th of October. So if you are a Divemaster looking to furthering your dive education you can contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information!
