Takes about 3 hours for the snorkelling but the rest of your party could do the walk along the rift valley to kill time till your done.

We returned from our trip at Silfra snorkeling today. You can book the snorkeling and drive there on your own with every provider, you don't have to be on a tour. We booked at extreme Iceland and are very happy
