DIVING in Saltstraumen, with its unique marine life, drift dives and cold water. Here you can experience large schools of pollock, and get in close contact with a large cod that graze in the kelp forest. Meet impressive wolffish face to face. Enjoy the sight of a huge halibut that gracefully sails through the water. Study beautiful nudibranches or colorful anemones, and watch kelp forests dance in the streams.
The strong currents and steep walls make it demanding to dive here. So to dive with us in the Saltstraumen itself, you must be a certified dry suit diver, and master the dry suit well., And preferably be AOW-certified.
How demanding the diving is depends on the lunar phase, and how big the difference is at high tide on the day in question.
We are diving from both land and from a boat. All our dive sites are within 1-7 minutes by boat or car. We have one of our best land dives straight from the quay at NORD&NE. To take out the boat, a minimum of 3 divers is needed.
We do not take larger groups than 7 guests in the boat.
