Iceland´s leading Dive & Snorkel Tour Operator

DIVE.IS – The Sport Diving School of Iceland was founded in 1997 by Tómas J. Knútsson, whose work set the standard for recreational diving in Iceland.

It is thanks to Tómas’s efforts in promoting scuba diving in Iceland that Silfra became such a beloved dive site among the international diving community. Today, Tómas focuses on a subdivision of PADI Project Aware called the Blue Army, which he founded and manages.

In the summer of 2006 Tobias Klose took over management of DIVE.IS. He has been traveling all over Iceland in search of new dive sites and developed new dive tours covering the greatest (so far known) dive spots in the country.
In 2012 DIVE.IS was upgraded to a 5 STAR PADI Dive Center and in 2013 DIVE.IS became a 5 STAR PADI Instructor Development Centre.

Marijo Jovišić

Guide & Handyman

I was born in Bosnia and Herzegovina where I grew up. From early childhood I was a big fan of extreme sports, especially snowboarding. I organized snowboard races and eventially became a  snowboard instructor. For the last 12 years I have lived in Croatia with my wife Lidija and we recently became parents of a beautiful baby girl Anja. My first ever dive was in the Adriatic Sea, after which I realized that diving was something I wanted to do my whole life. I have an extensive experience in the construction industry ever since my teenage years, which is something that I inherited from my father and grandfather. We recently moved to Iceland and have opened a new page in our lifes, ready to discover this beautiful country.  I have finally found the place where I can combine the two things I enjoy doing, construction and diving. If I could describe in one sentence, it would be ''One big happy family''.

Articles & Movies

Great things have been said about Diving in Iceland.

Over the years many articles have been written about diving and snorkelling in Iceland.
Particularly Silfra was in the spotlight of the journalists in the early days. Well it´s only 9 years ago that Silfra made a front page for the first time. That was in the british DIVE Magazine and shortly after in TIME magazine.
After those articles the ice was broken and many journalists both for print and moving pictures came to visit us in the coming years... not only to write about Silfra but Iceland as a dive destination.
