Dive the big five and observe large schools of spawning cod
The Cod Spawning Dive Expedition combines the Highlights of Iceland Tour with two days of observing large schools of cod in their spawning activities. Our partner in the north, Erlendur Bogason usually join us on this tour. Erlendur is the diver who discovered Strýtan (the geothermal chimneys) and he is the first and only diver to have filmed cod spawning in their natural environment.
Many huge schools of cod gather in the fjord Þistilfjörður for their spawning. Dives are usually not deeper than 25m and most of the fish are seen between at depths between 8m and 12m. Apart from the cod this is an excellent location to observe exciting North Altantic marine life, such as wolffish, lump suckers, starry rays, redfish, flatfish, nudibranchs, crustaceans, and more.
We use steel tanks due to better buoyancy properties.
We use both 12 liter and 15 liter bottles.
We can also offer both single and double valves.
Please let us know in advance which tank configuration you require for the equipment you bring, so we can have it ready for you.
What type of valve/fittings do you have on your SCUBA tanks?
All our tanks have DIN fittings.
If you bring a regulator with a Yoke fitting, also known as INT, we can bring an adapter to screw into our DIN valve.
Please let us know in advance.
