Dive Expedition with Dive.is [Post 1]

Well, I am going to write this blog post in English becouse I want everyone that I know to understand what is going on :)

A couple of weeks ago my friend Tobias from www.dive.is invited me to join him for a Dive Expedition around Iceland with specific focus on the North East and the East fjords.

I only took my Padi Open Water Certificate the previous Atumn so I had not done anything like this :)

Well. Our first stop was in Hjalteyri right north of Akureyri. Where I took a warmup dive to the very large crane right outside the old herring factory. I am going to let some photos follow this and you get more text right below. :)

(click the photos to get them in a slideshow with a little description)

After diving at the large crane we went on a pretty rough ride searching for the Little Strítan. We however failed finding it in the very hard seas but we found a scallop plantation on 20 meters that was just boiling with life. Very cool place!

After this rough first day with a 5 hour drive to Akureyri and 2 pretty rough dives we took refuge in a very nice Cabin just North of Hjalteyri.

Our ways where after this destined for the North east where we had promises about endless visibility and some very big supprises!
