DISCOVERING WRECKS IN THE SOUTH OF ITALY

WRECKS TOUR IN CALABRIA

Calabria is strategically located in the centre of the Mediterranean sea and is characterized by the presence of two seas, Ionian and Tyrrhenian, that meet themselves in the amazing scenery of the Strait of Messina. Calabria may be the reign for the most demanding scuba divers, thanks to the variety and the beauty of its depths and even for the unrivalled quality of sea and weather conditions.

Along the Route of the Convoys of the second world war, the sea beds of the province of Reggio Calabria house more than 20 historical wrecks, and more others that are still waiting to be explored! These wrecks, often well preserved, represent an important historical and naturalistic heritage, as well as a tourist attraction. All these wrecks, belonging or not to the Navies engaged in the conflict, are patrol boats, freighters, submarines, ferryboats, tankers, each with its own story.
Every year, we discover new wrecks, especially of the Second World War, some of which are very well preserved! The last one was the wreck "Zeila", sunk in front of Spartivento Cape!

Nowadays all these wrecks, 70 years after their sinking, have turned into biodiversity’s oasis: sponges, various species of corals, fishes that find a chance for a well protected hiding place.

Even underwater, Calabria represents the perfect integration between archaeological treasures, art and nature, ready to be admired by anyone wishing to explore the beauty of its sea floors.

Let’s discover it together!

Company details

Active since 2007 in Calabria, the services company for tourism and sport Megale Hellas, with attached 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 Sea, 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 – 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 Sea, of the Tyrrhenian Sea 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 Jonica promenade, in the heart of the so-called “Jasmines Coast”. It has a large reception, a multimedia classroom, a full deposit with equipment rentable, bath, hot shower and a wide laundry for washing equipment after dives.
But Megale Hellas is not only this… It’s a structured center of tourist services for the discovery and knowledge of the province of Reggio Calabria territory. We are able to offer all-inclusive tourist services, for divers and not, which include, in addition to courses and scuba diving, guided tours, hiking, trekking and food and wine tours, to discover the natural, architectural and archaeological beauty of this area of Calabria, surrounded by two seas, dominated by the massif of the Aspromonte National Park and inhabited by people characterized by deep and generous hospitality.
