  • 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.

  • Fantastic - so clear...the guides were extremely helpful especially to my wife who was very nervous. I'd persuaded her to do this with me and she thoroughly enjoyed it too!

  • This was a fabulous experience! Make sure you have good base layers as you will be suiting up in a parking lot, rain or shine. Our guide was very knowledgeble and made our experience outstandiing. The water is amazing and I will absolutely do this again when I return.

  • Brilliant! A magical experience with patient guides for those new to snorkleing in extreme conditions.

  • This tour was amazing!

  • An amazing experience....hardest part was getting into the dry suits!

  • This tour was incredible- super enthusiastic and fun instructor, he kept things simple and straightforward. We were well equipped with all the gear that we needed and the crew made sure we were all securely strapped in. The view was out of this world as we slowly made our way through the fissure, taking photos and videos underwater I brought a waterproof go-pro camera, highly recommend. I liked that the entire tour was JUST long enough to soak in all the beautiful views without completely freezing our bottoms off.

    If there's one snorkeling or scuba tour to do- it's definitely this one!

  • Awesome awesome awesome! What an experience! Just do it, you won't be disappointed.
