What a unique experience this was almost opted out when u first got there I'm so happy I didn't. The views below the water was absolutely breathtaking definitely a once in a lifetime experience. Very highly recommended.
this is either a DO NOT DO or a MUST DO depending on the person. The water is 2 degrees Celsius year round, which is damned cold. The teddy bear suits and dry suits are a pain in the ass to get on and off. There is nothing to see in the water except neon green seaweed and slimy brown algae. But if you are the adventurous type then you will do it all anyway.
Outstanding guide and overall experience. Would love to do it again.
Possible the best thing i've ever seen.All the fear of the cold water and ability to snorkel disappeared immediately. The suits given help you float so no real effort needed. Although do wear thick socks. Our guides was dori (sorry if spelt wrong) and sarah. Both were very nice people and great help
Really fun!! The guide is excellent and you are well looked after from start to finish.
This experience was absolutely incredible. The guides took care to ensure that the dry suits were a good fit. When I couldn't get a good seal on my mask, the guide traded with me so that I would be able to fully enjoy my experience. Highly recommend taking a waterproof camera. The water is ridiculously clear and it was great to bring back photos of this experience. There is a mild current, so I could just take photos as I drifted along. If we go back to Iceland we will definitely be doing this again. No fish to be seen, but the fissure was still amazing.
The guide was great! Answered all my questions and made the whole experience enjoyable and fun. An underwater camera is a must. The water is cold but you wear an insulation suit under a dry suite so its actually not that bad even though the water is only 4 degrees C. This was a great experience, I've never been snorkeling before and this was an excellent first time.
An amazing experience snorkelling, we were lucky and had a lovely clear day without too much wind. A toasty -5 but the dry suit kept us nice and warm. The views are amazing, definitely worth doing.
Fantastic trip, was very peaceful and beautiful. Laurent was a great host too. Thoroughly recommend if you can handle the cold and take your time to enjoy the experience!
The highlight of my trip to Iceland! It takes a lot of work and effort to put on a dry suit over a snowsuit, but the snorkeling was just marvelous. Well worth it!
Gulfoss and snorkeling in the Silfra fissure were highlights of our trip. Richard was a great guide and Tina was wonderful leading our snorkeling adventure. Tour could have cut out Geysir hot spring or at least made that part a very short stop.
Snorkeling was cancelled unfortunately but the weather was the cause of that...couldn't fault the tour or guide in any other way!
I enjoyed and would recommend this trip. I will say to make sure you wear thick socks to keep your feet warm in the wet suit.
This was really fun! The only thing was I was saving my pictures for later. People started getting out and I thought that we were going to explore a different area but nope that was the end of the tour! I was shocked and thought I was overcharged for this tour! The only part that made this worth it was the optional cliff jumping afterwards! Not everyone did it but I did it twice! That was pretty awesome! I'd say do the scuba dive one. I'm sure it's better. The snorkel was different but it was really short. Like 1/2 hour long.
