Our guide Victor was wonderful. Some in our group were new to snorkeling and he was very patient and helpful. The gear kept me warm while I enjoyed the remarkable colors and clarity of the water.

Great guide - unforgettable memories - pictures included!

Our guide was Ronan and he was absolutely the best! He constantly joked around, made us feel like we've been friends forever with the rest of the group and was extremely enthusiastic. We first started with an introductory round, each announcing their name, country and a little something about oneself, which was great because we would spend the next 2 hours "kicking each other in the face". Then he proceeded to give us a little history lesson; great insight! The pictures he took are great memories! After we were done, while drinking chocolate and eating an Icelandic chocolate bar, he gave us tips on where to go next, what to see and why these places were special. A morning to remember! Thanks, Ronan.

Veronica was our guide and she was great! She was careful to explain all the important details and best practices, including not harming nature. Such a unique trip is so Iceland! Their love of life and the natural world is clearly evident in this activity. I would recommend this trip to anyone who wants to experience Iceland in a way that is seemingly representative of their unique and exuberant spirit. Loved this opportunity!

Just a breathtakingly-incredible experience. Our guide, Sara, was awesome, and the actual snorkeling part was so much better than advertised, impossible to oversell this - just a total thrill and the highlight of our Iceland trip. We will recommend this to everyone we know.

Nice view, you are dry and warm in a dry suit, but it is difficult to swim in a heavy suit, be aware of it.

The guides were amazing. They are helpful and make you feel comfortable in those suits. They are hot at first and heavy until you get in the water and then you appreciate it.

A must for Iceland.

This was the highlight of our trip to Iceland. The view is simply stunning and I didn't want to get out of the water. If I wasn't leaving that day, I would have booked a second snorkel. I am normally terrified of swimming in deep water but I felt so safe in the dry suit and the quality of the snorkel made it really easy to use. My suit did leak slightly but I didn't feel cold at all- mine was the only one in the group who's did. Anna took us round and was a lovely guide, made sure we all stayed safe but got to explore and she took lots of pictures. She explained the site to us, how to use the equipment properly (I had not used the equipment before and normally struggled with snorkelling) and all about the fish and area. The only downside was this tour ended. I look forward to coming back to try again or maybe even diving.

Snorkelling with Ronan
Jessica_S
, Mar 2022
What can we say?! This was by far the best snorkelling experience me and my husband have ever been on. Ronan was a great guide, very helpful and full of energy. He was full of knowledge and was very patient with us. He was very thorough in explaining do’s and don’t and was amazing in the water with us. - the actual experience of snorkelling between the continents was breathtaking. We went at our own pace to see the amazing views below. We had some free time to swim and snorkel at our own leisure at the end of the session which was great. We were then warmed up by some hot chocolate and was able to change in a back of a warm lorry which was bliss after being outside in the cold. Ronan captured amazing pictures of our whole group and by the time we had got back to out accommodation, the pictures were already sent over to us. I highly recommend this trip and my husband and I are so glad we booked to do this. It really did make our trip! Thank you so much. Adam and Jess

What an amazing experience! The water was crystal clear and it was so serene and peaceful. I was worried about how cold it would be as I always get cold easily then can’t warm up but honestly it was only me hands, face and feet that got cold and only right towards the end by which point we were getting out and they warmed up quickly on the walk back to the changing room. Our guide, Elsa was amazing, it wouldn’t have been the same without her. She was funny and very patient. I would recommend wearing one if not 2 thermal baselayers, nothing too bulky but the warmer the better. You have a thermal onesie under the dry suit, don’t forget thermal socks as you have special boots built in the dry suit but the onesie doesn’t cover your feet. Ladies, your hair will get wet, there’s no way around it so bring a warm hat and maybe a towel to towel dry your hair after. Overall, couldn’t recommend this trip enough!
