3 Hour Snorkel Tour

Maria and Alberto were fantastico! Very engaging and entertaining. They did a top-notch job and their patience with my anxiety was unending. 5 stars all the way. As far as the experience itself, we personally would not do again- the whole process of prepping into the dry suits and then waiting to get in the water all in was almost 3 hours long, so we were bummed to miss other items on our list that day. Not the tour group's fault by any means, but just be aware of the time it takes. As far as the snorkeling, it cannot be understated how uncomfortable the dry suit is. The time under water was interesting, but really not that much to see. Rocks. Super cool to see so far down, just overall for us the "what we got out of it" was just not worth the time investment. Make note to try to grab some cash for a tip, they definitely earned it but we had no cash with us and they did not have a way to accept Venmo tips.

Without doubt one of the best things I have done in my life. I have dived/snorkelled all around the world but nothing prepared me for the incredible blues/clear water/colours I saw during this experience. I went with the wetsuit as could dive more freely, was cold at the end but Maria was excellent at providing dry robes & hot chocolate to warm us up. The Viking Adventure Team were fantastic!!

I would recommend the dry suit if you want to stay dry or if you’re inexperienced in swimming. You stay buoyant the whole time but the seal for your wrists and neck are tight so be aware. Wet suit you get soaked head to toe. Definitely a unique experience and the water is super clear.. HOWEVER VERY COLD. Your hair, face and hands will be freezing. You’re in the water for approximately 30-35 minutes. Definitely recommend!

So much fun!

Luis was a great guide! We did the wet suits (had originally signed up for dry suits) and it was a great experience! We were nervous about being cold but the ability to move around and the beautiful sights were so worth it! Had a great time!

DO IT!!! It's incredible!

Maria was AMAZING. You are able to choose your suit once at the tour, and we went with wet suits. Maria was so energetic and led us on a fantastic tour. It was the best thing we did in Iceland!

Hands down the coolest thing I’ve ever done. My suit did get a leak but it didn’t matter because Maria made it fun. Luis and Maria are so funny together. I am definitely doing it again. My best friend Sara absolutely loved it too. But wants to do the wetsuit so she can move around better next time. Thank you again :)

Looking to check off an item on your bucket list? This is a must do. I booked a snorkeling session with adventure vikings. Luis, Maria, and Alberto were great. They gave us a detailed briefing and got us in our dry/wet suits. They were clear and concise with their instructions. They answered any questions we had, making sure to check on us along the way as we were diving in the cold water of silfra. If you are planning to bring a gopro make sure you have a good strap on the handle you don't want to drop your camera. 10/10 would do again. The hot chocolate at the end hit different after snorkeling in the cold water 🙂

Put this on your must see list!

This was a once in a lifetime experience for me and my family. The water had shades of blue I don’t typically see underwater and the clarity of the water was amazing. Luis and Maria were excellent guides! They made our trip informative and fun. They also offer wetsuits for those that are daring. If I did this again, I would have picked the dry suit (my error).
