Silfra

The dive between the continents

The Silfra Rift is one of the greatest dive sites on this planet. You are diving in the clearest water of the world (visibility 100m+) in a crack between the American and the Eurasian continents. Silfra has been rated a world top 5 dive site by many of the most respected dive magazines worldwide.

Strýtan

The geothermal chimney

Strýtan is the only place known to man where recreational divers can reach geothermal chimneys. We visit this exceptional dive site in the north of Iceland on most of our longer day tours.

Gullfoss & Geysir

Iceland's "must-see" nature sights

Gullfoss and Geysir are two of the main sites on the popular “Golden Circle” route. Gullfoss being Icleand´s most photographed waterfall is a sight no Iceland visitor should miss. The famous geysers with its spouting hot spring Strokkur is an awesome sight that will blow your mind.

Kleifarvatn

Underwater & Underground

At Lake Kleifarvatn we dive directly into bubbling underwater hot springs. The landscape around the lake is similarly breathtaking, and it's hard to believe this remote-looking dive site is only a 30 minute drive from Reykjavík.

Garður

The North Atlantic is full of life

With its undersea gardens, forests, and deserts, Garður is our favourite ocean dive site in the Reykjavík area.

Bjarnagjá

The fresh and salty fissure

Bjarnagjá is a lava fissure on the Reykjanes peninsula. The freshwater of the Bjarnagjá is mixed in with the sea water entering from the end of the fissure. We often dive here on our 3-Day Reykjavík Tours, and we also recommend combining a dive here with a visit to the Blue Lagoon.

Davíðsgjá

The hidden gem

Like Silfra, Davíðsgjá is a lava fissure in Lake Þingvellir. Davíðsgjá is very different from Silfra, though. One of our guides describes it as a "darker, spookier" version of Silfra. Not all will agree that it Davíðsgjá is spooky, but it certainly provides for a mysterious and beautiful dive.

Nesgjá

The Silfra of the north

Nesgjá is another lovely fresh water fissure with the crystal clear water that is so unique to Iceland. Nesgjá is quite shallow but amazingly beautiful. The lagoon is huge and as one of our instructors says: “The visibility depends solely on the quality of your dive mask.” You can see further than 100 meters. Sometimes we get to see arctic charr, a certain type of salmonide in the fissure.

Westfjords

Europe's last wilderness

The Westfjords beautiful beaches and steep fjord cliffs lead into Iceland’s clearest ocean water. The ocean here has a great variety of dive sites. There are many wrecks and old artifacts to be explored. The ocean around these fjords is rich in marine life—these are great waters for observing monkfish—and it is the only place where hard coral is found off the shores of Iceland.

El Grillo

An excellent wreck dive!

In World War II, german fighter planes sunk the British oil tanker “El Grillo” in the fjord on February 10th, 1944. The wreck is about 150 meters long and weighs over 7000 tons. The ship lies at a depth of about 45 meters and the shallowest point is reached after descending about 28 meters.

Gullkistuvik

The gold treasure box bay

Gullkistuvik is our preferred boat dive site from Reykjavik. It is a beautiful bay framed by dramatic rocks and a lonley beach. Gullkistuvik is a great dive site for freediving tours and scuba diving tours alike and the kelp forest with it´s rock gardens invites divers to explore the great variety of marine life we encounter here. On our dives we see a lot of flat fish, scorpionfish, sea urchins, sea slugs, sea cucumbers, , nudibranchs, the occasional wolf fish and much more.
