DIVE.IS – The Sport Diving School of Iceland was founded in 1997 by Tómas J. Knútsson, whose work set the standard for recreational diving in Iceland.
It is thanks to Tómas’s efforts in promoting scuba diving in Iceland that Silfra became such a beloved dive site among the international diving community. Today, Tómas focuses on a subdivision of PADI Project Aware called the Blue Army, which he founded and manages.
In the summer of 2006 Tobias Klose took over management of DIVE.IS. He has been traveling all over Iceland in search of new dive sites and developed new dive tours covering the greatest (so far known) dive spots in the country.
In 2012 DIVE.IS was upgraded to a 5 STAR PADI Dive Center and in 2013 DIVE.IS became a 5 STAR PADI Instructor Development Centre.
