Safety & Equipment

Your Safety

Scuba Iceland is a PADI 5 Star Instructor Development Centre. We are one of the most established dive centre in Iceland, founded back in the days well before Iceland became a hot spot for tourism.

All our staff members are professional Dive Instructors, Dive Masters and Emergency first response Instructors, specifically trained for cold water diving and snorkelling. Many of our guides are trained and certified even higher than that, as Master Scuba Diver Trainers, Staff Instructors or technical divers. In short, real experts in teaching and guiding experienced and non-experienced divers and snorkelers through the Icelandic waters.

All Scuba Iceland staff members are certified as commercial divers by the Icelandic Maritime Authority, ensuring an exceptionally high standard of training and knowledge.

Scuba Iceland provides regular Emergency First Response and Rescue training for all staff members, to ensure our skills are always fresh both in mind and muscles. Regular emergency drills and rescue scenarios conducted in our real life working environment is a natural part of our operation. Our highest priority is to provide a safe environment for our customers as well as our staff members.

Scuba Iceland is certified as a travel service provider by the Icelandic Tourist Board, called Vakinn. Only tourism businesses that maintain the highest standards in all aspects of business practices and meet Vakinn´s comprehensive assessment criteria have earned the right to carry Vakinn the official quality label.

Our Equipment

All our dive and snorkleing equipment is less than a year old, and of top quality. We are using dry suits and undergarments from respected Waterproof International and 0´Three. These neoprene suits will keep you nice and warm in the water.

Our dive regulators are from Apeks and Dive Rite, known around the world for top notch regulators developed for both technical and recreational diving. Our BDC´s come from Tusa and AP Diving, both highly respected brands by the global dive community.

When booking a dive tour, snorkeling tour or a PADI course with us you will be in safe hands. As well as being professional, our guides and instructors also have a great sense of humour and we give you our word that you will have a memorable day in the water!”

Definitely a must-do
A truly unique and amazing experience! The guides were professional, organised and knowledgeable, and everything ran smoothly.
