Tour Description

Dive into the most unique body of water in the world with unparalleled visibility. Silfra is a crack in the Earth ripped open by the movement of the North American and Eurasian tectonic plates. The crystal clear glacial water filling the Silfra fissure has been filtered for decades through underground lava rock, providing over 100 meters of underwater visibility. The underwater scenery that you experience in Silfra is found nowhere else on Earth.
At the Silfra Meeting Point, your guide will give you a detailed briefing of the dive site and will then assist you in setting up our dive equipment. We use high-quality BARE and Aqualung brand SCUBA equipment and APEX or Aqualung regulators.

  1. Beautiful Dive

    Had an amazing dive with my wonderful guide, Stefano. Everything was prepared when i arrived and we were able to be the first ones in the water for the day(we had the water all to ourselves). Had the most amazing dive, Stefano pointed out the highlights to me and took great footage of our dive. It was cold but the hot chocolate afterwards was great. Views are amazing and I had a perfect day, highly recommend this trip.
