Scuba diving in Iceland – part 1

In a couple of months I'm going to do something that has been on my wishlist for a very long time. I'm going to visit Iceland! Probably you already guessed that much reading the title of this post :) It was around 10 years ago that I saw some National Geographic photo's of Iceland and I immediately knew I wanted to visit this place. I didn't even scuba dive back then, so then it was all about the nature above sea level. Nowadays I also always want to take a look below the water and they have some amazing dive sites if you don't mind diving in cold waters.

As I only have 1 day that I can spend diving I need to make a strict planning. Personally there are two dive sites I'd love to visit and that's Silfra and Strytan. However, as I have no idea about the possibilities I went in search of dive center who could help me with these questions. After some searching and asking around I found Dive.is. I've sent them an e-mail with some important questions:

Are there any regulations you need to be aware of as a diver?Iceland
What water temperatures can I expect in March?
Do I need the dry suit specialty to be able to dive in Iceland?
What possibilities can they offer me for 1 day of diving?
What will the costs be?
I'll keep you posted when I review some answers :)

Till the next story...
