My wife and I booked a snorkeling excursion with Arctic Adventures. It was amazing! You don't technically snorkel between the two continents, so don't expect to take any pictures with one hand on each continent. There's also nothing alive below the water, at least not...More

Thanks to Dive.IS and in particular Bart our guide and Clarence his assistant for a terrific experience. 53, 52 and 16 we were first-time dry-suiters and pretty rare snorkellers and it could have been a challenging experience but for the prifessionalism and attentiveness of Bart...More

We snorkelled with Dive.is. We arrived very early as our hotel check out time was early. Fraser met us with a great smile partially hidden under his beard and after consulting with his colleagues, gave the four of us a private snorkel. As with many...More

I booked in advance, but I'm not sure you have too. I think it's a lot easier though, if you know when you want to do it. Do this the same day you visit Thingvellir, it's very close to each other.
