OUR STORY

Is it possible for a holiday to change your life?

Twelve years ago, Damiano La Rocca’s father, Carmelo, was hit by a drunk driver. While in hospital, he befriended a young man named Martino who had also suffered an accident and was recovering from a similar operation. As Carmelo recovered the use of his legs, Martino did not. During one of their many conversations, the topic of scuba diving came up and Martino expressed his desire to try this out. After looking into scuba diving lessons for wheelchair users, it became apparent that this was not something that was widely catered for.

As an experienced scuba diver, Carmelo took it upon himself to become an instructor and teach Martino himself. Martino himself enjoyed scuba diving so much that he became the first paraplegic man to dive 59 meters, a Guinness World Record in 2007. From this, both Carmelo and Martino decided that they wanted to help other people with disabilities and so set up an Italian based charity, Life Improvement For Everyone (L.I.F.E).

L.I.F.E focused on rehabilitation and accessible sports so that people with disabilities can, as their motto states, ‘accept the challenge’. L.I.F.E has since gone on to help many other impaired people including young Benedetta Spampinato (blind) who also holds a Guinness World Record (2009), for deep sea diving.

Carmelo’s work inspired his son, and Seable’s founder, Damiano. After researching the topic at university, Damiano realised that holidays for people with visual impairment was not widely catered for and knew (from his father’s example) that accessible tourism worked and that there was a gap in the market. From this, Seable was born. Now, Seable is connecting everyone with the opportunities of L.I.F.E. with culture, food and adventure packed holidays accessible for everyone.

Damiano La Rocca, wishes that every disabled person in the UK can experience a rewarding, exciting and potentially life changing holiday. On a Seable holiday, visually and physically impaired people can enjoy every type of holiday whether it be accessible excursions and activities such as scuba diving, olive oil making and exploring Europe’s highest active volcano or simply a relaxing holiday. Whatever is decided, Seable will tailor a dream holiday.
