Five of us (my wife and I plus three teenage boys) did this snorkeling experience in April 2022. Overall, we had a great time and received some very nice pictures from the tour operator later the same day. They did a nice job of explaining things and led small groups around the fissure. They key to staying warm is to dress in layers: we each had a warm initial layer, and then they give you a wet suit and, finally, a dry suit, plus gloves and a hood. This works and, while a bit uncomfortable, did keep us warm and allow us to enjoy the experience, which is unique and memorable.

Such a great experience snorkelling this fissure. Victor our guide was tremendous- expertly guiding us and informing us and taking so much time to ensure we were all getting the most out of our trip. Can’t praise him highly enough. There’s a lot of kit to put on and lots of instructions to get that right so it takes a little while to get ready. Then a short walk to get into the water and then wow! Loved every minute.

Our guide was super nice and helpful, very knowledgeable. The snorkeling was amazing, I’ve never seen water so clear. They took the time to explain all the equipment and make sure everyone felt comfortable whether you were a first time snorkeler or a seasoned one.

Awesome experience! Our guide Kevin was very nice, patiently explained everything and accompanied us while snorkeling. The continental fissure is very impressive and the crystal clear water makes it easy to see and explore everything.

A breathtaking experience also thanks to the great guide Kevin. I can only recommend it to anyone traveling to Iceland.
