In general, it is possible to go diving all year round in Fehmarn. The best time of year is from May to September, when the underwater world is at its most active. Fehmarn offers a choice of around 10 diving spots, most of which are located on the western and eastern coast. Legal restrictions only apply around the nature reserves, outside the naval station in Marienleuchte and in the port facilities. The majority of diving spots are easily accessible by car.

For beginners and advanced divers, the Baltic Sea off Fehmarn offers ideal diving conditions. Diving depths of between 5 and 10 metres can be reached from the shore. During the summer, the range of vision is up to 15 metres, although this can vary significantly according to weather conditions and algae growth. The bottom is covered with loose overgrown boulders that are teeming with underwater flora and fauna.

Particularly common sights include pipefish close to the seaweed beds, crabs, flatfish, wrasse, sticklebacks, eelpouts, gunnels, two-spotted gobies, painted gobies, sand eels, Baltic prawns, starfish and various types of mussels. With a bit of luck, you might catch a glimpse of a sea scorpion, an eel or a shoal of young herrings. Dotted around Fehmarn are approximately 10 diving wrecks. Photographers do not generally need to use additional lighting when diving.

Guided dives, diving courses and other activities are offered by three diving centres – one in Wallnau in the west of Fehmarn, at Wulfener Hals to the south and one in Katharinenhof on the eastern side.
