FAQ

Do I need to know how to swim?

Our drysuits are buoyant and float on the water, however, it is mandatory that all participants know how to swim and feel comfortable in water to join the tour. You don’t need to be a strong swimmer, just to be able to swim and feel comfortable in the water. Our tours are considered to be safe for anyone in good physical condition. We offer all the safety equipment necessary and you will be snorkeling with a professional and certified PADI Dive Master. If you have specific questions regarding our snorkeling tour, feel free to email us.

Are photos included in the price of the tour?

Yes. GoPro underwater photos are included in the price of the tour. Your guide will take photos through your tour, both outside the water and under the water and they will be sent to you via email after the tour.

What should I wear for snorkeling tour?

We recommend that you wear thermal layer top and pants, and an extra pair of warm socks that will keep you warm under our drysuit.

If I am pregnant, can I join a snorkeling tour?

Unfortunately, we do not recommend that pregnant women participate in the Silfra snorkeling tour due to the extreme conditions of snorkeling in a tight drysuit and cold glacier water. In any case, feel free to contact our Service Team for further questions and concerns.

How does weather affect my tour?

Wind and rain are common in Iceland, in addition to snow in the winter, but we do not let challenging weather stop us from going out and enjoy nature. All we need to do is choose our clothing wisely, which is why we recommend wearing waterproof jacket and pants as the second layer. Of course, safety is our #1 priority, in case of extreme weather or road conditions, we will cancel our tours and do our best to reschedule your booking at a further date or provide a full refund.
