Frequently asked questions about our PADI Courses
I am allergic to latex and/or neoprene. Is this a problem?
Our suits contain both neoprene and latex, so we ask that you contact us before completing your booking to discuss your situation and arrange for alternative equipment if possible.
What is the weather in Iceland like?
During the summer months (June, July & August) it's sunny and warm(-ish) or overcast and wet, and often somewhere in between. The Icelandic weather famously changes at the drop of a woolly hat. So be prepared, bring your sun screen and short as well as your all-weather gear. Even in the middle of summer the temperatures can get low (to below 10°C at night) so a good fleece - or better yet, Icelandic wool - will be essential, along with a hat and gloves.
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 drysuit 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 drysuit expereince for them, because they are fragile aquatic environments and have sligthly harder conditions than many other dive sites around the world.
