The day will begin with a 9 a.m. pick-up from your accommodation. You will then be transported to Silfra for an instructional theory session. Next, you’ll gear up and participate in a training session conducted in confined water. There you will review the skills and techniques necessary for certification. Finally, you will be let out into Lake Kleifarvatn or Lake Thingvallavatn for two guided open water dive. Once, you have completed all the dives and passed the course you will receive your PADI Dry Suit Specialty Certification. Transportation back to Reykjavik is provided.
Please note, Day 1 does not include diving the Silfra Fissure as training courses are not allowed in the fissure. If you still want to explore Silfra Fissure, we recommend you upgrade to the two-day course. The two-day option includes two Silfra dives at a discounted price.
Day 2 begins with another pick-up from Reykjavik that takes you straight to Silfra. You, now a certified dry suit diver, will then strap on your gear for two guided dives into the famous SIlfra Fissure.
You will descend into the crystal clear waters of the underwater canyon. Then make your way down the fissure marveling at the rugged volcanic walls and multicolored vegetation. Enjoy 325 feet (100 meters) visibility in the surprisingly cold waters between the North American and Eurasian tectonic plates. All that's left is to scratch Silfra and your PADI Dry Suit Certification off your bucket list on the short ride back to Reykjavik.
Pick-up on Day 1 and Day 2 from your accommodation in Reykjavik is at 9 a.m. Transportation back to Iceland’s capital from the dive center is also included. Please be aware that it may take up to 30 minutes for pick-up to arrive.)
