Learn to dive in a dry suit and prepare for Silfra

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 for 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.

Our Dry suit course and Silfra dive with Stefanino

We took the dry suit course and then Silfra dive trip. I can't say enough about the experience. Stefanino was an excellent instructor, he was extremely knowledgeable and professional. We felt at ease within minutes of being with him. We were fairly new to diving and he adapted to our skill and showed us a great experience both in the course as well as the Silfra. We highly recommend Dive.IS, they made the experience simple and worry free and if you get the chance recommend Stefanino he is an excellent guide and well versed in his craft. We will definitely be back.
