Active since 2007 in Calabria, in the Southern tip of Italy, the Services Company for Tourism and Sport Megale Hellas, with annexe Diving Center, operates in an area naturally predisposed to welcome those who love the sea, the nature and the variety of landscapes, which are home of archaeological vestiges and ancient traditions. Here, in the heart of the Mediterranean, the ancient Magna Grecia territory – hence the choice of the name “Megale Hellas” – invites you to know the hidden secrets of the turquoise blue sea, which bathes wide sandy beaches along the Ionian Sea and vertiginous cliffs along the Tyrrhenian “Violet Coast”.
The Megale Hellas Diving Center – SSI Center (Scuba Schools International), Sea Point FIAS (Italian Federation of Underwater Activities) and Gold Center ISDA (International Scuba Diving Academy) – will guide you to the discovery of the uncontaminated sea of Calabria with its Diving School, well-organized to introduce you to the hidden wonders of the Ionian, of the Tyrrhenian and of the Strait of Messina.
The structure, comfortable and well equipped, is located a few steps from the sea, on the Marina di Gioiosa Ionica promenade, in the heart of the so-called “Jasmines Coast”, along the Ionian side of the Reggio Calabria province.
The Diving has a large reception to welcome the divers, a multimedia classroom equipped to accommodate comfortably up to fifteen students, a full deposit with equipment rentable, bath, hot shower and a comfortable and spacious laundry for washing equipment after dives.
We offer divers the chance to deposit the personal equipment in comfortable numbered baskets during their holidays.
There’s the Recharge Center to refill cylinders with Air, Nitrox and Trimix. It’s located in a separate adjacent room, with two compressors (COLTRI MCH/13 and ALKIN). We are equipped with more than 70 cylinders, dual-capped steel of various sizes (18, 15, 12, 10 and 5 liters, including several double tanks) and aluminum S40 and S80.
Our Diving has also broken down the barriers and, thanks to a well-qualified instructors staff, offers courses and diving experience for people with disabilities.
The transfers towards the dive sites are carried out with our comfortable minibuses, on which we transport the cylinders and the equipments for single or repetitive dives.
At the port of Roccella Jonica there’s our dinghy, 7.50 m long, with 250 cc engine, with which we carry out diving along the Ionian coast, which houses many shipwrecks sunk during the Second World War.
Thanks to a fast road that links the Ionian Sea with the Tyrrhenian Sea, we dive also along the Violet Coast and the Strait of Messina, where the colors of the submerged cliffs, of the reefs and of the caves can satisfy also demanding divers.
