Gourmet Snorkeling Tour


Not a certified diver? Not a problem!

Come snorkel with our experienced local guides in the clear waters of the Westfjords!

The Westfjords are some of the most remote parts of Iceland. Scallops, Mussels and Urchine (Uni) abound in the sparkling crisp waters of the fjords.

Learn to collect delicious local seafood treats for a delicious BBQ on the beach, as fresh as possible!

Dive Westfjords will take you to the best sites were you can collect the freshest of seafood. Let our divemasters (and self described gourmet chefs) cook for you delicious traditional Icelandic fish soup to eat by the sea.

Float among the beautiful Kelp gardens, over fields of Corralling Algae and between the big rocks and cliffs. Sometimes we can swim around curious seals and float on the surface with diving birds such as Cormorants, Guillimots, Razorbills.
