, Aug 2018
This was fantastic trip and a well done excursion. We were nervous before we got there because I wasn't in the best of shape. But the guides have a lot of patience and if you are not ready they either help or wait. We went with a small group which I recommend if you are older and not in your best physical condition. Mind you the most exertion was putting on the dry suit and walking to water. Walking part was not far, i guess 70 meters, but you are in layers tight thermal wear which made it harder. Once in the water I was fine, the feel of the suit eases on your body. Swimming even frog style is hard because I couldn't get my legs in the water. I was never cold in the water or afterwards, the air temp was 14 degrees C. The water is crystal clear you can see really well. The guide watches you the entire time to make sure you are all Ok. I am so glad I went. The group of dive instructors really look after you and are friendly.

Best experience I have ever had! We had a beautiful drive over, bumpy, but to be expected with such beautiful views. We had a amazing tour guide name Nick. He took stunning pictures and made the experience easy. I wouldn’t have picked anyone else for our snorkeling adventure. (:

Zoltan was a fantastic guide. Extremely funny, personable and professional. It was cold and rainy throughout the whole experience but he and Caroline had smiles the entire time. Very loose atmosphere, we were joking and talking like old friends immediately. Highly recommend these tour guides. The water was very cold, the suits didn't leak and the views were fantastic. I would do this again. Recommend to anyone in iceland.

The guides were kind and very attentive to everyone's needs. All three of them actually kept me calm at one point when I had accidentally choked on some water note: if that happens, remember to flip onto your back!! The water's clear, cold, and clean, as advertised. Definitely a cool experience.
