Diving Terms

Fair & Transparent


Social Diving is based in Germany and operates online and offline worldwide. These legal pages are provided in English as a courtesy to our clients, visitors, readers, and partners. In the case of conflicting clauses, the German version takes precedence over any translations.

Our diving terms

We are very happy that you consider diving with us and aim to provide you with the highest quality diving services! However, you need to make sure you are aware of our diving terms of service to prevent any misunderstandings right from the start.

Below you also find our downloads section with all the legal documents you need to sign before diving with us. Make sure to fill them out before the event so we don’t need to worry about the paperwork and can get straight into the diving!

Please read our diving terms of service carefully before signing up for any diving events at Social Diving. We cannot provide any refunds due to a failure on your part to comply with our rules and regulations.

Minimum requirements

We expect a sufficient certification level and experience from every diver before taking part in any scuba diving-related activities. We also require a check-dive from every diver we don’t know yet or those who only have a small number of logged dives.

This is not a way to be mean to you(!) but we feel it is important that everyone who goes diving with us can do so without pressure or fear. You and anyone who comes along.

Diving in Germany

Diving in Germany is a fun but challenging experience, both in and out of the water, as well as before, during, and after the dive.

As such, diving with us here might be very different from what you are used to in holiday resorts in the tropics and similar. Be aware that we often dive in natural reserves and not a tourist region which must be treated with utmost care.

All prices are per person, based on a two-people booking at the regular diving times. VIP and private diving excursions, scheduling during the week, as well as diving services not listed above are charged individually at a minimum of 100% surcharge.


Our listed prices are based on the assumption that our guests are able to provide transportation for the dive instructor or dive guide to the dive location.

As we are legally prohibited from providing such transportation to our guests, we must charge the guest for any transportation cost occurring to the Social Diving staff (such as taxi or rental car charges) if it is not provided.

If you have any questions or would like to join us next time, please use our contact form and send us a message!

Rental equipment

We provide the best rental equipment around. This is not a marketing slogan, we really do provide the best equipment out there. It is always brand-new, serviced, and looks almost like it has never been used.

You can imagine that we like to keep it this way. Every one of our clients and students should be able to enjoy high-quality equipment and see, why we at Social Diving are just different!

Before going on a diving event with us, you will need to sign our terms of use for equipment, etc. that you find in our downloads section above. However, we want to point out again here, that we would like to get our equipment back the way it was before.

Whether accident or negligence, a fee incurs for any damages to our equipment. Please do not get water into the first stage either, as this will mean we have to service our regulators completely.
