I booked this since it's something unique to the Iceland area. It was interesting and glad I did it. Our guide (Xabi) was experienced and kept things interesting. He clearly set the expectations and told us what to do and what not to do. You'll wear a dry wetsuit and also an inner jumpsuit which will keep you dry and warm (really). There's quite a bit a prep time to get everyone ready so you'll only be in the water for 30 minutes but that's really long enough to experience this.
