      We imagined this would be awesome in hearing about it. Choosing Troll Expeditions to do this Snorkeling between Continents in Silfra was the best decision. We were so fortunate to be teamed up with Pablo as well. He explained everything with humor and expertise - he made it all the more memorable. Worth the price for certain.

      Ronan was an outstanding guide. Kept us laughing and forgetting about how ridiculous we looked getting in and out of the suits. He was helpful and patient with me the oldest in the group and the one who didn't have a partner. The pictures were great. I am glad they included some of the actual scenery and not just the ones of us. Thank you for a great time!

      We enjoyed a wonderful Tour in the Silfra rift with Ronan. We got a good instruction with no questions left and always a safe feeling at the Tour. The Equipment like the drysuit was good and seemed to be not often in use before. The Pictures are awesome!! Thanks for the cool guiding Ronan :)
