Diving Silfra Under The Midnight Sun

A Silfra dive in bright night

Prepare to be amazed

The Icelandic summer is a fantastic and beautiful time. For visitors new to the northern bright summer nights, the midnight sun is an amazing experience. To combine this with scuba diving in the clearest water on this planet right between the North American and the Eurasian continents is extraordinary.

In summer between June 1st and July 31st we offer our Diving Silfra Tour with a departure at 8pm from Reykjavik.

The tour is the same as the Diving Silfra Day Tour, with the difference that we will dive in the evening when we have the National Park Thingvellir almost to ourselves. The evening atmosphere in Thingvellir is quiet and mysterious and the special evening light will provide an unforgettable scene for your dive.

The late departure time also makes it possible for you to do other activities during the day and use the evening as well.

Please note that in order to dive in Silfra you must have dry suit certification or 10 logged dry suit dives within the last two years of tour date and be able to provide written proof from a diving instructor of these dry suit dives.

If you want to share the experience with your friends or family who are not scuba divers, you can combine this tour with non-divers and snorkelers. Ask us!

Midnight Sun Silfra Dive

I did the Silfra Midnight Sun dry suit diving, which I highly recommend. Our dive guide Ants was extremely friendly, attentive, and professional. He really went the extra mile to ensure the best possible dive experience. The tour begins with a thorough briefing where the dive is described in detail and any questions are answered. The gear was in great condition and fitted for each person- I have very narrow wrists, so the suit required a little taping and tailoring to ensure that it was completely sealed. The dive itself was very unique- the water is some of the clearest in the world, and the fissure itself is dramatic and with strikingly basalt columns. Although the geology stole the show, we did get a visit from a white finned Arctic Char and a comically belligerent seagull. Thank you to everyone at Dive.IS for a wonderful, once in a lifetime experience! I can't wait to dive with you again :)
