Sportif Dive - diving holidays worldwide

IAHD

The International Association for Handicapped Divers (IAHD) offers you the opportunity to learn to dive with professional, well trained Instructors for an unforgettable underwater experience. The IAHD also has special courses to teach divers how to train people with physical or (minor) mental disabilities to dive.

IAHD was founded in 1993 and its main goal is to promote, develop and run diver training courses for people with physical or (minor) mental disabilities and for Dive Instructors and others wishing to train divers with physical or (minor) mental disabilities. Scuba diving is one of the most accessible sports for people with physical or (minor) mental disabilities. From the moment that you submerge underwater, you feel as if you are in another world. You experience sensations of freedom, weightlessness and safety. One moment you are at the water’s edge and the next you are at one with the wonders of the underwater world.

For more information on the IAHD see here.
