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. Tobias has travelled 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.
In 2017 DIVE.IS was recognized as a “Model Company of the Year” by VR, the union of employees and employers engaged in commerce in Iceland. DIVE.IS received this award for its excellence in categories including management, equality, work atmosphere, and employee happiness.
