Iceland is a beautiful and strange place to dive, presenting you with new experiences when taking the plunge.

Cold water diving requires a different set of skills than warm water. For instance, to be a competent dry suit diver you must be able to control your buoyancy, clear air from your feet, and remove and replace your dry suit inflator hose.


We offer the Dry Suit Course every Monday, Wednesday and Friday, providing students a high quality, safe, fun and thorough introduction to dry suit diving.

Please be aware that although this course is taught in a fun and relaxing manner, it is a very physically demanding course and includes multiple dives in Iceland’s cold water conditions.

To dive in Silfra, divers must have completed drysuit certification prior to entering the water. Our Dry Suit Course & Diving Silfra 2-Day Package offers divers without the necessary dry suit diving record the opportunity gain the required experience and be prepared for their dive in Silfra. Following successful completion of the course on the first day, you will be ready for the fun dive in Silfra on the second day. With the core dry suit diving skills under your belt, you will be able to enjoy the sublime underwater world of Silfra fissure.

The Dry Suit Course & Diving Silfra Day Tour 2-Day Package is structured as follows:

Day 1 – Dry Suit Diver Course
• Theory and Knowledge Review
• Pick-up and drop-off from central Reykjavik
• Confined water (pool) session
• Two Open Water training dives at a local dive site

Day 2 – Diving Silfra Day Tour (Upon successful completion of Day 1)
• One fun dive at Silfra 

During the confined water session your instructor will introduce you to diving in a drysuit. The skills you learn will include donning and maintenance of the dry suit, buoyancy control and self rescue skills. You will then move on to your open water dive site where you will practice these skills again at a deeper depth and in a different environment.

The course has a maximum of three students per instructor, which gives each student the greatest individual attention. With training in a variety of dive sites, this dry suit course provides a sturdy basis for all of the cold-water dives that you will undertake in the future.

Please note that neither participants nor instructors are allowed to bring any type of camera into the water on the course. This is prohibited. However, our Iceland guides will bring a high quality camera with them on the second dive during the Silfra Day Tour.
