The Diving center

Piloto Diving Center works at VILLAGGIO TORRE RUFFA in San Nicolò di Ricadi (VV), Calabria.

The enterprise is located along the beautiful coast of Gods, more precisely in the well-known turistic resort of Capo Vaticano, one of the most beautiful coasts in Europe. The strategic position of the Diving, makes very easy to organize dives, as all the dive sites can be reached easily and in just a few minutes by dinghy.

Our seabeds offer fun for all types of scuba diving licences, from Open Water Diver to the most experienced, thanks to the numerous dive sites and the different depths of each one, ranging from 7 to 40 metres.

About the programme, the Piloto Diving Service provides two daily trips with the possibility of a double dive in the morning, one in the afternoon and, during the week, a night dive.

The diving centre is equipped with a relaxation area, toilets, showers, freshwater tanks for rinsing and a storage for our diver friends’ equipments. If you would like to use our equipment, you can hire all the equipment you need, as we have 50 scuba tanks and 20 octopuses, 30 jackets, 40 wetsuits, flippers, boots and diving masks for all sizes, from the smallest to the largest.

But the fun is also extended to beginners! At our centre, in fact, it is possible to obtain diving licences according to PADI standards where every lesson and every dive is guided by experienced and above all qualified staff because fun is everything, but as we always say: “Safety First!”.

There are also various activities for children. Children, from the age of 8, can embark on their first experience starting in the confined waters of the pool where they can learn the basics of diving while playing and having fun with our instructors in the “Bubblemaker PADI” programme. For youngsters, but also for those who would like to have this fantastic experience, but still have some doubts about the safety of the activity, there is the “Discovery Dive”, which is an activity carried out at a depth of a few metres in total safety with the help of trained and experienced instructors who will be ready to satisfy any theoretical and above all practical doubt.


Did the Discovery go well? Do you want to continue this fantastic experience? Then why not continue with the various PADI courses that are also valid abroad. Open Water, Advanced Open Water, EFR, Rescue Diver, Divemaster and many other specialities such as Night Dive, Deep Dive, Oxygen Provider and Digital Photo.
