OUR STORY

Is it possible for a holiday to change your life?
Twelve years ago, Martin Florio and Carmelo La Rocca met in a hospital, each recovering from a serious accident. Carmelo having been hit by a drunk driver, regained the use of his legs although Martino was not so lucky and unfortunately his injuries resulted in him being paralysed. This therefore meant that he would now have to use a wheelchair.

Martino didn’t accept it very well which sent him spiralling into depression not long after. Carmelo decided then and there that he should commit his life to help Martino to get through. As they talked, Carmelo shared his passion for Scuba diving and in the following months the two men worked together to start the charity ‘L.I.F.E’ (Life Improvement For Everyone).

This charity focused on rehabilitation and accessible sports, along with the motto; ‘accept the challenge’

Martino enjoyed scuba diving so much that he became the first paraplegic man to dive 59 meters, a Guinness World Record in 2009. L.I.F.E has since gone on to help many other disadvantaged people including young Benedetta Spampinato (blind) who now also holds a Guinness World Record (2009), for deep sea diving. Now, Seable is connecting Brits with the opportunities of L.I.F.E. with culture, food and adventure packed holidays accessible for everyone.

Damiano La Rocca, Director of Seable and the son of Carmelo 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.
