Ocean Diving Tour
On this tour we usually see a lot of marine life. It depends a bit on the time of year, but the kelp forest offers a great habitat for wolf fish, scorpion fish, different types of nudibranchs and crustaceans, plenty of different species of flatfish, monk fish and far more.
You can take the PADI Underwater Naturalist Specialty Course on this tour and learn more about the marine life in the North Atlantic. The other PADI Specialty Courses you can take on this tour are the PADI Dry Suit Diver Specialty Course or the PADI Digital Underwater Photographer Course.
Note that ocean dives in Iceland depend on the weather and it can happen that scheduled ocean dive trips have to be cancelled due to unfortunate weather conditions.
If that is the case we usually have a plan B and can offer you other dive sites, such as Bjarnagja, Kleifarvatn or Silfra which do not depend on the weather quite so much.
As with all of our tours, we will pick you up at your hotel in the Reykjavik area and drop you back afterwards. we also offer you some light snacks during the break between dives. The pick up time of this tour depends on the tides. We usually want to end our second dive around the peak of the high tide.
In cases of bad weather conditions, ocean dive tours can be cancelled.
