The Dry Suit and Silfra Special

One step forward

Spice up your scuba diving adventure in Iceland

Take the PADI Dry Suit Course, dive at Silfra and more!

Iceland offers fantastic landscape above water, but DIVE.IS wants to offer you a great opportunity to explore the underwater world in this remote and mysterious land.

If you already hold the PADI Open Water certification (or equivalent) and want to learn more about dry suit diving in cold water, this is the package for you.

Our Dry Suit and Silfra Special takes 2 days and includes the PADI Dry Suit Course, one unforgettable dive at Silfra, the PADI Tectonic Plate Awareness Distinctive Specialty Course (unique to DIVE.IS and carried out during your dive at Silfra) and 1 dive at Davíðsgjá fissure located in Thingvellir National Park.

We throw in a couple of freebies to make your experience extra special! When you book the Special, you will receive free photos from your dive at Silfra and your Davíðsgjá dive, as well as a free Silfra t-shirt.

Please keep in mind that, even though you will find a relaxed and fun environment here at DIVE.IS, the course and the dives are physically demanding and you must comply with all of our safety requirements. Please see the list of requirements below.


  • This is a Spring and Summer package, based on the daylight hours we have. If you are planning your visit in the Fall or Winter, please know that the schedule and price of the package are subject to changes. Contact us for prices and details.
  • The PADI Dry Suit Diver E-book (15000 ISK) is included in the package. If you have purchased a hard copy of the PADI Dry Suit Diver manual, you are welcome to bring that along with you and we will refund you the cost of the E-book. Please let us know as soon as possible after booking if you have your own manual. It is mandatory to study it and fill out the Knowledge Reviews in the manual before the course begins.
