It was a pleasure to have Frank Devriese 53 from Belgium with us recently. When he was 21 years old he had a motorbike accident since that time he has been paraplegic.  12 years later Frank came in contact with diving for people with a disability and decided to try it out and since that time he’s addicted to it. Dive trips abroad are usually 3 to 4 times a year out of Europe where it’s nice and warm. Frank checks the location to see if it’s accessible for people in wheelchairs and then can start to plan his trip. If it’s possible he will return with a whole group later in the year including between 3 and 6 people with a handicap and also the carers or partners. This time he stayed and dived with us at Asia Divers/El Galleon Dive resort. He enjoyed the different types of diving here and the wonderful marine diversity. It was a bit of a learning curve for all of us here, but were looking forward to make the resort more accessible so Frank and a group will be able to come over later in the year. Congratulations to Frank who did his 800th dive on this holiday!
