Booking and Availability

Dry- and wetsuit snorkeling
Snorkeling in 2-4 degree Celsius (35-degree Fahrenheit) water may sound daunting, but fear not! Our premium drysuits ensure that you stay completely dry and warm throughout the expedition. The combination of a thermal undergarment and the protection of the drysuit guarantees ultimate comfort, allowing you to fully focus on the mesmerizing beauty that surrounds you.
For our more daring and adventurous participants seeking an up-close and personal encounter with Silfra, we recommend snorkeling in a wetsuit. The wetsuit offers greater mobility, giving you the freedom to dive a little beneath the surface and explore the wonders of Silfra’s underwater landscapes. Feel the exhilaration as you become one with the pristine waters and connect intimately with the geological marvels beneath.
