Iceland is a beautiful and unique place to dive, presenting you with new experiences when taking the plunge.

Cold water diving requires a different set of skills than warm water. For instance, you must be able to control your buoyancy, clear air from your feet, and remove and replace your dry suit inflator hose. Cold water diving is new to you? No problem! With this 2-day package you gain the required experience and get prepared to dive Silfra and our Diving Tours. We teach you everything you need to know to immerse into your first fun diving adventure in Iceland’s cold water conditions right afterwards.

DIVE.IS, Iceland's PADI 5 Star Dive Center, offers the PADI Dry Suit Course on a daily basis and provides students a high quality, safe, fun and thorough introduction to dry suit diving, taught by our experienced Dry Suit Instructors.

Please be aware that although this course is taught in a fun and relaxing manner, it is a very physically demanding course.
