Ever wanted to be a Volcano Diver? Where better to learn than Iceland - The land of fire and ice?

Here at Scuba Iceland we are proud to offer the PADI Volcano diver distinctive specialty written by Dr Keith Cardwell, we are the only Dive Centre in Europe able to offer this course.

This course teaches about what volcanoes are, how they are formed and how we as PADI divers can see and interact with Volcanic features

The course involves a theory lesson along with a knowledge review and then 2 open water dives at the world famous “Silfra” fissure.

During the open water dives we will photograph and draw different features that have been formed by volcanic activity and discuss them post dive to understand them in greater detail.

We will also plan our dives and think about the considerations we need to take when diving in Volcanically active areas to ensure dive safety.

By the end of the course you will have an increased knowledge in the geological principles behind volcano’s and be able to plan and execute dives in active and dormant volcanic areas around the world, you will also be one of a very few elites to hold the PADI Volcano Diver distinctive specialty card
