Tom Burrows, Instructor & Guide

"I'm just a simple man, trying to make my way in the universe" - Jango Fett


I am from Stoke-On-Trent, England but despite being from this land locked city I have managed to spend most of my life in and around the water. I have worked as a dive instructor in various places around the world, Mediterranean, Caribbean but also colder waters around the UK and of course Iceland!! I first came to Iceland in 2015 and immediately fell in love with this beautiful island and it remains one of my favourite places. So it's no surprise that after a year away working in the Cayman Islands I found my way back here to Iceland and Dive.IS. I am happiest when I am on/under/around the water, so that's where you'll usually find me, whether it's diving, freediving or just swimming!

  • "Our guide, Tom was encouraging, informative and a reassuring lead"

  • "Our guide Tom was fabulous. He took exceptional care to make sure our suits fitted and our masks were clear"

  • 'Tom was our guide on the Silfra dive. He's not only a very skilful diver but a skiful driver as well. We were so impressed that he was finning backwards so that he was watching us and taking photos. We really love the photos.'
