Not until I landed in Iceland and read my three page voucher, that I realized my husband was over the weight limit. I wish this had been clearly stated. When I called to ask about his weight I was told I should have read the statement. I AGREE I just wish someone would have mentioned this @ the time of booking over the phone. The web sight does not lead with these requirements

After having the jitters prior to commencing the snorkelling, our guide made sure I was at the front and close to him at all times. After the initial shock of the cold water on our face and hands we gently proceeded through the silfra , the nerves passed and I can only describe this experience as unique in every way. Well worth it, no regrets what an experience.
