Héðinn is the absolute beat guide for this once-in-a-lifetime adventure. I was SO nervous that I would be cold or get wet, but his equipment is top notch. He truly provides a personal touch. One of the members of our party was having difficulty, and Héðinn made sure he was safe and comfortable without jeopardizing the experience for the rest of us. His passion for diving and the amazing spot on this planet he calls home is evident with every interaction. I was really surprised at the abundance of aquatic life we encountered. I even saw a fish! Last but not least, the hot cocoa and cookies with rich conversation were a great way to wrap up this amazing excursion.

I was recommended booking our diving adventure through Diving Island whilst planning our trip to Iceland. We were certainly not disappointed! We received excellent email communication beforehand, providing us with everything we needed to know for the day, including itinerary and location plans etc. When we arrived at the dive site in Silfra we were greeted by a super friendly and enthusiastic Héðinn. He had already prepped our gear, so we just had to do our final buddy checks. His dive brief was very thorough, talking us through the dive site with great knowledge of the topography and history in the area. He made us feel at ease when discussing dry suit diving in the cold waters. He was extremely accommodating helping us into our suits and lifting our tanks etc, and also provided hot refreshments after the dive. The rented equipment was excellent quality, which included Fourth Element trilaminate dry suits and base layer thermals, integrated Dry Gloves (make sure you choose orange ones, I asked for blue ones to be different and my hands look like deflated surgical gloves in all the photos!) and a Wing System. During the Dive, Héðinn took underwater photos throughout which we received afterwards to remember the experience. Diving Island is an excellent and highly professional company. It is a small family run business and therefore takes small groups. It was just the two of us on this tour which made the whole experience feel even more special. A true 5* experience!

I highly recommend Héðinn as your Silfra Diving Guide. He is thoughtful and explains all the details of the dive before the actual dive. He's patient and answers all our questions with clarity. He's knowledgeable about the dive and made sure that all the equipment is properly setup. Héðinn also takes great photos throughout the dive and provided hot drinks with light snacks after the dive. Overall, Héðinn really went above and beyond our expectations and made our dive a wonderful experience. I definitely recommend Héðinn and Diving Island for your dive or snorkel experience when you visit Silfra.

Everthing you can wish for. While the other companies were doing the dive with a lot of people, Héðinn offered quite a personal experience with great photos.
