“ Silfra snorkelling trip ”
I can not recommend this trip highly enough, it was definitely the highlight of our holiday to Iceland. Do not be put off by the thought of the cold, even in Winter. The dry suits make it a comfortable experience!
The setup by Dive IS is incredibly professional, from booking through to return to our hotel. Everything ran flawlessly. Our driver/tour guide/instructor/all round lovely person was Nino. His enthusiasm, knowledge and kindness really made this trip outstanding.
I would definitely recommend doing the snorkelling experience in combination with the rest of the Golden Circle tour too!
All in all, an amazing day :))

“ If you only have 1 day to explore Iceland, this is the tour ”
Spent 5 days in Iceland with my mom and the Dive.IS snorkel + Golden Circle tour with our guide, Frasier, was the most remarkable experience. With an intimate group of 6 people, Frasier did an outstanding job sharing Icelandic history with us and ensuring everyone in the van had the excursion they were looking for. Frasier was thorough in our preparations for snorkelling and was tremendous guiding us thru the water... words cannot describe how awe inspiring the continental divide is. After that the tour continued and we saw horses, 'the Wall' from Game of Thrones, multiple waterfalls, national park, geyser, sunken volcano, and more. If you have one day to explore outside of Reykjavik, this is the trip!

“ Snorkling with 'the beard' Fraser ”
We had a very pleasant experience snorkling and joining Fraser for a tour around the Golden Circle. We were driven around all day in a van with just just two other people and it was very intimate and exclusive, but simple at the same time. The sights, the water and the skies are wonderful. Thank you dive.is, for giving us a day we won't quickly forget. Shout out to Fraser!

“ Snorkeling Silfra ”
Did the Golden Circle & Snorkeling Silfra combo tour. I had a great time! We had a small tour group of four and our guide Stefano. Stefano was awesome! He made the tour personal and gave us plenty of time to explore each part of the golden circle on our own. Our last stop was snorkeling Silfra. It was amazing! Stefano and Ele got us dry suited up and walked us through everything we were about to experience. Snorkeling was one of the coolest things I've ever done. The colors of the clear water were breathtaking. The water was cold, but you get used to it after a few minutes. This was a must do activity on my trip and I highly recommended it!!

“ Highly recommended ”
Since returning from Iceland, I have recommended this day to so many people.
We went for the Golden Circle and Silfra snorkelling day. I was initially quite sceptical about the cost. But I was wrong, the day was amazing and I would highly recommend it. The morning was fab, visiting the Golden Circle and viewing the beautiful landscapes of Iceland. In the late afternoon we did the snorkelling, which was the most amazing experience.
Our tour guide, Aj was fantastic. He was so knowledgeable, friendly and he really made the day. This is a wonderful day trip and I couldn't fault the day.

“ A full experience of Iceland ”
Stefano led a fantastic trip with a great attitude touring the Golden Circle (Gulfoss and Geysir) and snorkeling Silfra. He made sure everyone's needs were met, whether we were first time snorkelers or experienced photographers like me. He selected visiting the sites in an order that would give us the best experience and comfort.

“ WHAT AN INCREDIBLE AND UNFORGETTABLE EXPERIENCE! ”
My husband and our best friends did a full-day Golden Circle tour that kicked off with the Silfra snorkeling experience. Our group leader was Stefano (nino) and we CANNOT rave enough. Stefano and the entire team were incredible! They were all so friendly and knowledgeable and made us all feel prepared and excited for a once-in-a-lifetime experience. We were given a comprehensive explanation of how we had to prepare and what we would expect on our snorkeling trip. The views of the tectonic plates and the entire Silfra area were unforgettable. We have not stopped raving to our friends and family about our day and snorkeling trip. I would highly recommend Dive.IS to anyone visiting Iceland. We fell in love with our guide Stefano who made us laugh and feel safe and excited throughout the adventure. In addition to being an expert instructor, Stefano took pictures of all of us throughout the tour and helped capture the breathtaking views. We were able to receive all of our pictures to help remember the excursion. To cap it all off, we warmed up post-snorkel with hot chocolate and cookies!
THANK YOU SO MUCH TO THE ENTIRE DIVE.IS TEAM!!
We will remember those views for the rest of our lives!

“ Must try if you are in Iceland ”
We did the Golden Circle + Snorkeling tour. We thought if we were to come out all the way here, might as well add in the snorkeling. They picked us up at 10am. The van was very clean. The driver gave great explanations of the island, great washroom and food stops, and finally took us to the snorkeling Silfra site to end the day. The staff was very warming and helped us all into the dry suits. Keep in mind that the whole process of putting on the suits takes like 1 hour. The water was freezing but it has got to be the clearest water. Don't worry if you feel cold at first, you will get used to it. In the end, we changed and the crew gave us hot chocolate and snacks. It was a perfect day.

“ Golden Circle with Asgier and Silfra with Siobhan! ”
Golden Circle is a must-do when you visit Iceland, and the only difference between the different tour companies would be the experience that their guides create for you! With DIVE.IS, I couldn't have asked for better guides! Whilst the trip is the same as anyone else would offer, Ashier's tales from his travels around the world, his knowledge of Iceland (he is local) , and intellectual curiosity is amazing ! I had slept only for a few hours the previous night, but his energy is infectious! and do request him to take a picture or two for you - if he wasn't a tour guide, he would be a pro photographer :)
I did the Snorkelling with Siobhan, and she was equally amazing! Excellent at her job, made us feel very comfortable with all the gear, and took some amazing pictures!
There were some changes to my itinerary, but the company more than compensated for it and my experience was the most important thing for them! Would highly recommend a trip with this cool bunch!

“ Really Cool Experience ”
This is definitely one of the most unique experiences I've had in my life. I was extremely hesitant to go through with this because I was already a little wet and cold (and tired) from the wind and rain showers in the Golden Circle area earlier in the day. But I'm glad that I did it. Marie was our guide, and she was fantastic. She explained every step of the tour to us ahead of time, and helped us get into our gear. It wasn't until we physically got into the water that my hesitation dissipated.
I've snorkeled in warm water many times before, but this was such a different experience. The various hues of blue that we saw and the difference between the view underwater and the view above water was unreal. Marie guided us through the whole route, while also taking pictures and making sure that we were enjoying ourselves. My hands were definitely cold the whole time and borderline numb at the end of the tour, but my face wasn't as cold as I thought it would be, and the rest of my body stayed completely dry. After getting out of the water and changing out of our gear, Marie gave us hot chocolate and cookies, which was a very nice touch.
We bought the photos from our tour, which was provided to us via Dropbox and available for a month after our tour for download. It was accidentally deleted earlier than expected (and before we were able to download our photos), but we reached out to DIVE.IS about it, and they were able to bring it back up so that we could download them. This to me was extremely professional, and I'm glad they were so responsive.
