Scientific diving
for science and media

Located in Kiel (Germany), worldwide assignments



With several thousand hours underwater, Submaris is your competent partner, even for the most demanding of jobs. We’ve successfully supervised and/or conducted scientific projects from the frigid waters of the Arctic to the coral reefs of the tropics. As trained scientist from various disciplines, we work together in an interdisciplinary way, from 'A' as archeology to 'Z' as in zoology.

Using high-quality still and video cameras, we’re able to create award winning documentaries in the most challenging oceanic conditions, some of which have been published in National Geographic, GEO, and the German publication “Bild der Wissenschaft”, in addition to countless television programs.

Our team owns and uses modern diving equipment and dives safely according to internationally recognized standards, also focusing on the international research diver guidelines (GUV R-2112).
