I got this as a Christmas present from my parents. This was an amazing experience and I would recommend this activity to everybody. I am very afraid of the ocean and I thought I was going to have a problem but when I got in...More

Once in a lifetime experience. Yes, it is cold, but they give you gear. Try to keep hands out of water and they will at least keep you warmer

This was an amazing experience. Steve, our instructor, made the whole process before and during snorkeling easy and fun. I highly recommend putting this on your bucket list of things to do in Iceland.

Where else in the world can you snorkel between tectonic plates in pure glacial water? Nowhere! Well organised with friendly guides, good quality kit which works well to keep you warm (only your fingers and lips really get wet/cold) and hot chocolate for afterwards. Yes,...More

Amazing that you can float in water with a temperature of 2 degrees. The drysuit keeps you warm. We received good instructions and ultimetly it was less scary than we initially thought. Amazing clear waters looking 30m down

I traveled with my 16 year old daughter. This adventure was her idea and I was a bit reluctant (snorkeling in cold water??). This was one of the highlights of our trip. The guides were friendly and so helpful. The snorkeling experience was beautiful. I...More

We went snorkeling with "Scuba" Steve from dive IS. He was upbeat and helpful as we pulled our gear on and prepared on a chilly and rainy day. He was entertaining throughout the experience and gave extra guidance when needed for first time snorkelers. Even...More

As long as you're comfortable in deep water, you should be fine. I went with a friend who didn't know how to swim and we got a good guide who helped my friend with her fears and navigating the waters. The dry suit makes you... More

Hi! We used Dive.is and it cost us 490AUD (so about 380USD) for the both of us. This does include the levy to get into Thingvellir national park, but not the parking if required which is 500ISK. There may be cheaper... More
