Diving at Silfra Iceland

Silfra Diving

During your dive you will explore the four main parts of Silvra. You will float through Big Crack, Silfra’s narrowest section, where you can have your ‘Dive Between the Continents’ photo taken. As the fissure widens you will find yourself in the majestic Silfra Hall with the possibility of local geese and ducks paddling overhead. Near to the opening to Thingvallavatn we will enter the Silfra Cathedral; if there are divers ahead you will see the ‘chandelier effect’ of their rising bubbles. Your dive is finished in the endless visibility of Silfra Lagoon.

This tour includes two dives. Each dive will take about 30-40 minutes with a maximum depth of 18 meters. In the winter, however, if the outside temperature drops below 0°C, we conduct only one extended (40-45 minute) dive for the safety and comfort of our divers.

If you have friends or family who are not certified divers but would also like to experience Silfra, they would be very welcome to join the Snorkeling at Silvra.
