Scuba diving is one of the most accessible sports for physically or mentally disabled people.

From the first moment that one enters the underwater environment, there is a feeling of well-being. In this totally different world, there is a feeling of freedom, weightless and safety. One moment at the waters edge, the next at one with the underwater world.

Many disabled people experience scuba diving as a therapy. During the dive, physical restrictions are forgotten and in some cases, there is even relief from pain and discomfort. Scuba diving can help people rehabilitate. It can have a positive effect on the mental state because the physical and mental experience underwater is the same for both able-bodied and disabled people.

IAHD is an independent, autonomous subsidiary of WOSD and we give you the opportunity to learn to dive under the supervision of professional, well trained Instructors, to provide you with an unforgettable experience underwater.

The IAHD also has training courses in which people can learn to supervise and train disabled divers.
