April 2019, It’s Fiji!
We are planning a two-week scuba event for Fiji in April 2019. Does diving in crystal clear water through colourful reefs appeal to you? Placed in the warmth of Oceania, Fiji is a collection of 322 islands, of which only 100 are inhabited, leaving the rest as nature reserves. Stunning white sand beaches, warm water and an incredible diversity of marine life make Fiji one of the best scuba dive destinations in the world. Stay tuned as we update our event plans for next April’s dive.
Will you join us for a scuba diving adventure in Iceland?
As one of the youngest landmasses on the planet, Iceland has a distinct prehistoric feel with black sand beaches, geysers, massive glaciers and 30,000 live volcanoes. The Silfra Fissure is one of many popular features fed by melt waters of the Langjokull glacier. The Silfra (Silver Lady) is one of the worldís top dive sites and is the only place in the world where you can dive directly in the break between two continental plates. The glacial water filling the fissure is filtered through porous underground lava before it reaches the north end of Thingvellir Lake, resulting in pristine water with incredible visibility to over 100 metres (328 feet).
Explore the shipwreck El Grillo, sunk in a fjord in 1944, or Strytan, the underwater hot springs of Lake Kleifarvatn, offering fantastic diving prospects surrounded by geothermal activity. Strytan features a 55 metre or 180-foot-tall limestone chimney rising up from the ocean floor. A hot spring at this location has been releasing mineral-rich water for the past 11,000 years resulting in this chimney that continues to leak fresh hot water. You will appreciate the extra warmth of the hot springs while you explore the unique flora and fauna supported by this unusual geothermal feature.
