More Iceland

Hi

Just got back from a week touring and diving in Iceland. For those that are going for a cruise up that way, I would recommend taking some time to explore the country - its so different all over. Here's some of the photos we took.

If you're into diving, take a look at www.diveiceland.com, who do a great diving / sightseeing tour for a week.

Water Vis is amazing!

Thorper,

What was the water temp..

A fairly mixed bunch of divers there, singles, twins, stages & rebreathers... & looks like all in drysuits.

Where did you go to & what depths?

Looks very good

Pete

Fantastic pictures, crystal clear waters. Something really different from what we are used to see here. Except diving pictures from Greece of course.

Sorry I would have got in touch if we had time, however we spent most of the trip driving around Iceland, and did not get any free time in the end. I'll let you know next time for sure!

Hi Pete

We had all sorts really - mainly rebreathers and 3 open circuit divers - all drysuits as the water temp. was 3 or 4 degrees C!!

The clear water was the Silfra - its a gap between the US and European continental plates. Totally amazing dive, with caves and swimthroughs. Depth was varying - you can get 30-40m in there if you go down to the bottom, but its a bit of a sawtooth dive.

Over the next few days a lot more Iceland photos will appear here as the webmaster puts them up:

http://www.ttnt.co.uk/diving/PhotoGallery.html

We did some sea diving as well, although the visibility was 3-4m, and water just as cold. Depths go from 20-40 meters, depending on what you want to do - theres a geothermal vent in the north we dived which was pretty cool as well.

The country is amazing - we covered desert, mountains, volcanoes, lava fields, icebergs, sulphur vents, geysers, waterfalls and fjords. Well worth a visit!

Ricky
