Leon Swart:
I qualified as an Open Water Handicapped Scuba Diver on 22 October 2011 in Mozambique. It is difficult to describe in plain words what I experience 18 meters under water. I am completely blind. I lost my eyesight just after I turned 11. I am 59 years old. Recently in September 2017 I went diving in Umkomaas on the south coast of KwaZulu-Natal. On our last dive we saw some whales and all kind of other fishes around us. My buddy gave me some signals when we approached those fishes. I was breathless to know I was so close to all those God made creatures. Just being there among God’s handwork, was awesome. Diving has a wonderful calming effect on me. I am looking forward to future dives. I recommend scuba diving to all that loves the outdoor sports. Looking forward meeting you!
