Once in a lifetime
John_W, Aug 2022
A trip that won’t be forgotten, although in a fairly small group there are several companies working the same area so does feel a little commercial
angela_m, Aug 2022
Tasio was a fantastic guide and the overall service was great! The gear was protective and warm, the snorkeling itself was smooth and safe. Definite recommend.
Great experience

Vanessa was a fantastic guide! We enjoyed this experience - even though it’s really cold. The dry suits definitely help keep you warm. The guide pictures are a GREAT perk!
Unique experience!
Courtney_W, Aug 2022
Definitely a unique experience! Worth it! Anna was a wonderful guide. Absolutely no experience necessary to do this, the staff will take great care of you from beginning to end.
The fissures were...
Luke_H, Aug 2022
The fissures were breathtaking, and the Trolls Hair plant! Gorgeous and cool...quite literally! The guides suited us up and treated us well, gave us information pertaining to the area and was friendly.
Be careful- you really need a car no money back policy!
Suzanne_M, Aug 2022
I put on the form that I needed a pickup. Didn’t realize I had to find my own way there. Other places offer a pickup. I spent (wasted) the first part of my short trip trying to find a way to get there during busy season. I couldn’t get there and they would not return my money. Iceland had no car rentals and no public transport, the taxis were unaffordable at that distance. I was so disappointed with the waste of money and time I can’t even explain it!
Fantastic guide and beautiful silfra
Nivedita_V, Aug 2022
Our snorkelling guide was Pablo who was extremely nice, kept the experience enjoyable the whole time. He made sure we were all safe and doing ok throughout. He took photos at several great spots and the entire experience was amazing! At the end we had enough time to snorkel the shallow waters too!
Not a must-do
Jane_G, Aug 2022
The whole experience was actually pretty underwhelming. The snorkeling distance was pretty short and it felt longer to put all the gear on then it did being in the water. Our guide was friendly and kind, but not a very good photographer. She actually didn't seem interested in taking pictures of us, but had a load of scenery pics. The dry suits smelled terrible and made my clothes smell terrible as well. I actually had to pack my clothes in another bag to keep it from contaminating everything else. With so much to do around Reykjavik, this would not be at the top of my list.
An amazing experience - well worth it!
Katie_D, Jul 2022
A fantastic experience. Our guide, Veronica, was excellent. She gave us a thorough and reassuring briefing and made sure we were kitted out properly for the cold, and once we were snorkeling she made sure we got the very best from the experience. The pictures you see don't lie - the water really is that clear and the colours as bright! We had an amazing time and stayed dry and pretty warm throughout!
The tour guides were...

Amazing experience

Amazing experience. One of the top things we did in Iceland as a family. Anias was an amazing guide. A very unique and wonderful time for our family of four.
Amazing In Water But Long Wait
Michelle_P, Jul 2022
Very busy with a long wait to get in water. My family loved it while I felt to claustrophobic to finish. Quite a few people turning back out of the water for same reason. Don’t go if you are uncomfortable with super tight gear or have asthma., etc. Water is super clear with absolutely stunning scenery.
What an amazing...
Matthew_B, Jul 2022
What an amazing experience! Once in a lifetime activity. Our guide Tasio was fantastic. Highly recommend.

Amazing experience! Getting into the dry suit was a little daunting at first but the staff was great and helpful and Pablo was a terrific guide and made the experience fun!
Snorkel between continents!
Antoinette_C, Jul 2022
Anna was great! We were late and felt terrible, she was so accommodating and got us in with the next group. She explained everything slowly to us about the drysuits and the experience. We had a great time even in the cold water!
Cold but worth it!
Katie_K, Jun 2022
Our guide Anna was very friendly and knowledgeable. All the staff made sure we were prepared and helped us get on all the gear. It’s very cold on the face but a truly unique experience.

Our guide Victor was wonderful. Some in our group were new to snorkeling and he was very patient and helpful. The gear kept me warm while I enjoyed the remarkable colors and clarity of the water.
