Garšur

Gardur - Dive Sites in Iceland Garšur is our favorite ocean dive site in the Reykjavik area. It is at the peak of the Reyjanes peninsula and literally in the middle of the North Atlantic ocean, even though it is a shore dive. This is the reason why we have such an abundance of different kinds of marine life here.

Davišsgjį

Davišsgjį - Dive Sites in Iceland Davišsgjį or "David's ravine" is another nice dive site in the National Park Thingvellir. The visibility depends more on the weather than Silfra. If conditions are good we often do one dive in Silfra and one here. In Davišsgjį we sometimes see arctic charr or trout.

Bjarnagjį

Bjarnagjį - Dive Sites in Iceland Bjarnagja is an 18 m deep lava ravine on the Reykjanes peninsula. A dive in crystal clear water in a narrow crack caused by the drift of the two continental plates is a unique experience. The water is mostly fresh groundwater but it is influenced by the salinity of the sea as the site is only few hundred meters from the coast.
