Why are there limitations to the diving?


Silfra is located in the National Park and as such it is subject to restrictions put in place by Icelandic law, which require all divers to be a minimum of 17 years old, hold at least an Open Water Certification (stating you can autonomously dive to at least 18m) or higher and have either a dry suit certificate or experience. It is also forbidden to enter into any overhead environment, regardless of training, or to dive deeper than 18m. Our other sites are subject to the minimum age limit by law, and we require dry suit experience for them because they are fragile aquatic environments and have slightly harder conditions than many other dive sites around the world.
