Today was a very exciting day in Silfra at Thingvellir National Park. As we walked around the national park I saw some of the clearest water I’ve ever seen in my life. You could see right through it straight down to the bottom, it was beautiful. As we got in our dry suits to dive into the water, we were practicing using the equipment that we were wearing to minimize any accidents. Everything had to be super skin tight so that water wouldn’t leak into our dry suits and cause us to catch hypothermia. After 30 or so minutes of prepping with the gear, we were ready to jump in! I remember how the freezing cold water felt the minute I jumped into the water, it was a little hard to breathe at first but after a few strokes in the water its not so bad. We snorkeled for about 40 minutes between the Eurasian and the North American Tectonic Plates, and even swam against glacial currents!
