A message from the founder on the impact of Covid-19 on Seable’s customers

 

THE FOUNDER’S STORY

20 years ago, my father, Carmelo, was hit by a drunk driver. While in hospital, he befriended a young man named Martino who had also suffered a similar accident. As Carmelo recovered the use of his legs, Martino unfortunately did not. During one of their conversations, Martino expressed his desire to try scuba diving. However, at that time accessible scuba diving was not available in Sicily.

Carmelo, already a diver, took it upon himself to teach Martino, who enjoyed scuba diving so much that in a few years he received a Guinness World Record as the first paraplegic man to dive 59 meters.

Following this success, Carmelo and Martino started the charity L.I.F.E. Life Improvement For Everyone. L.I.F.E focuses on rehabilitation through accessible sports, and it has since gone on to help many other people including visually impaired Benedetta Spampinato to achieve a Guinness World Record for deep sea diving.

My father’s work inspired me to further the topic of accessible tourism during my university studies. I soon realised that holidays for the visually impaired were not widely catered for and I wanted to change this.

From this, Seable was born.
