在第一次潜水结束后我们将休息一个小时左右，享用美味的热巧和饼干。通常我们的计划是在两次潜水中（限夏季，约30分钟一次）完成大厅（Silfra Hall）、大教堂（Silfra Cathedral）和泻湖（Silfra Lagoon）的游览。注：一般来说导游会安排2次潜水，但如果当天气温在零度以下，则只能进行一次潜水，所有导游均具备 PADI Diving Master/Instructor 资质
集合地点： 集合地点位于辛格维利尔国家公园的史费拉停车场(P5)。谷歌导航输入“Thingvellir Parking P5”点击查看谷歌行车路线 请务必于行程开始前15分钟到达停车场与导游汇合。

Remember to bring: Proof of dive certification and documented dry suit experience. Warm long underwear (fleece/wool), warm woolen socks, change of clothing (just in case) and a towel.
Kindly note: We are using top quality neoprene dry suits. However, no dry suit in the world can be 100% guaranteed to stay dry unless it is custom made especially for you. There is a small chance of water entering the suit. Please bring a spare set of clothes just in case.
No Drysuit certification?
Please contact our sales department for further information or if you want to add a Dry Suit Speciality course you can take the 2-DAY DRY SUIT SPECIALTY COURSE & DIVING IN SILFRA for 95.990 ISK. Available from May-October.
Need glasses? Since you are wearing a snorkeling/dive mask to see underwater, there can be nothing in the way of the seal to keep them from filling up with water. That is, you can not wear glasses underneath the mask. You will have to go without them, wear contact lenses or bring your own goggles with prescription.
Winter departures: If the air temperature falls below -0°C there is a possibility that the divemaster will change the tour into just one dive due to safety reasons.
Flying home? It is strongly advised to wait a minimum of 24 hours after you last dive before getting on a flight. 18 hours is the absolute minimum.
Meet on Location
Directions: If you are meeting us on location, the meeting point is Silfra car park in Thingvellir National Park. Click here for driving directions to where you can park your car (parking “Thingvellir P5”). To meet your guide: Walk 400m back along the road until you reach a smaller car park with all the snorkel and dive vans, and look for your guide. Please be ready in the Silfra car park to meet your guide 15 MINUTES before your tour is due to begin.
For GPS: 64°15’23.508″N 21°6’58.676″W
The National park charges a small parking fee of 500 ISK for those that choose to meet on location.
This is a challenging dive where you need to be capable of carrying heavy equipment up to 400m.
Diving in Silfra fissure
On arrival to Silfra, dive guides will give a thorough dive briefing. This will include details about diving procedures, signs and signals, national park rules, your equipment, the route, and important information on how to use the drysuit.
Once you’re geared up, it’s time to walk to the entrance and get in the water. Entry is via steps that lead onto a large metal platform. The water will be waist deep as you stand on the platform so you can easily acclimatize to the feeling of the cold water on your face, and have a quick drink of the refreshing water. After each diver has done a weight check with the dive guide, it’s time to begin the dive!
You’ll be taken through each of the four sections of Silfra, and have plenty of opportunities to have a good look around. The first section near the entrance is the Silfra Deep Crack, which is long and narrow as it winds a little to the left and right. This then widens slightly into what we appropriately call the Silfra Hall, which leads to the deepest point at 22m called the Silfra Cathedral. After the cathedral, we turn left into the Silfra Lagoon, which is incredibly beautiful and the final part of the dive. After stepping onto the exit platform, your guide will help you remove your fins and you’ll have a chance to warm yourself up with roughly a 300m walk back to the car park. We can always remove your weights or even your gear if you have trouble walking with your gear on, and you can also have a rest back at the entrance which you will pass on the way back.
Once back in the car park, we’ll take the gear off you and get the hot chocolate and cookies out so you can warm your hands whilst you talk through the dive. The cost of the tour gives you the option of doing 2 dives in the summer (around 30 minutes each), but in the winter if the temperature is below freezing we will only do one longer dive (around 45 minutes) because the cold temperatures are more challenging.
If you plan to drive and meet us on location, the meeting point is at the Silfra car park, in Thingvellir National Park.
For GPS: 64°15’23.508″N 21°6’58.676″W.
Note that the National Park charges a small parking fee of 500 ISK.
We kindly ask you to be at the Silfra car park 15 Minutes prior to your tour starts.
Yes, we do require that you have drysuit experience for our diving tours. This will make things much easier and more enjoyable for you.
We do offer dry suit courses and after the course, you will be certified to use drysuits anywhere else in the future.
Note that you need to be able to swim to participate in any of our tours at Silfra.
- 200cm （6’5英尺）
The age limit for diving Silfra is 18 years old. We also recommend that you are physically fit and healthy, and no smaller than 155 cm/50 kg or larger than 200 cm/120 kg, due to available dry suit sizes. You need to be able to carry your full dive gear for about 250 meters.
We will need to see proof of your certification. If you do not have your card, please contact us well ahead of your tour and we might be able to find you in the PADI online database (if you are certified with PADI). If you show up on the day without your card, we unfortunately will not be able to take you diving.
The guide will normally not take a camera on the first dive. Silfra can be a challenging dive, and the guide needs to have his or hers hands free in case a diver needs assistance in the water. If everything goes well on the first dive, there is a chance that the guide will take a camera on the second dive. If photos are taken they can be purchased for 3 900 ISK in total for all photos. Talk to your guide on the day if you are interested in photos.
The maximum depth we are allowed to go to in Silfra is 18 meters. Most of the dive is spent at a shallower depth due to the topography of the site. The dive time is about 30 minutes per dive.
The water temperature is 2-4 degrees C (35-37 degrees F) all year round. The water comes from the Langjökull glacier which keeps it nice and cool, and very refreshing!
We use high quality neoprene dry suits from Waterproof International and O´Three.
