Course Director

Yasu Taniguchi, Perth Scuba Course DirectorHello, everyone. I’m Yasu, operating courses and tours in Japanese department of Perth Scuba. I’ve started scuba diving since 1996, 15 years ago. Every year when I was in Japan, I’ve been to many places for diving all over the world. At that time, I was a chemical engineer in a chemical company in Japan. In 2000, I took Instructor Exam (IE) and started to work as a diving instructor during the weekend.

I’m enchanted by unique Western Australian marine environment. In 2002, I decided to move in Perth, Australia. I worked as a full-time Instructor and operated diving courses as well as went to diving tours over 1000 experience dives from Exmouth to Esperance.

In 2009, I elicit cooperation from Lee, Perth Scuba and established the Japanese arm of Perth Scuba in the Perth City Centre. (This is a fateful encounter, thank you, Lee and Robert!)

Last 9 years, I’ve got 5 certificates that are afforded to certified 100 divers a year (In 2003, 2004, 2005, 2009 and 2010). My certified divers are more than 1100 divers at this moment. I’m really pleased to see all my students’ Instructors in action all over the world.

Diving Locations outside of Australia : Saipan, Guam, Bali, Palau, Maldives, Cancun, Catarina Island in USA , Mabul and Sipadan Island in Malaysia.

Favorite Dive sites in WA : I really love to see school of fish so Navy Pier & Busselton Jetty!

Best ever Dive : Sipadan Island.  A sight to see a swirl of barracuda.

Why You Love Diving : I love sensation of weightlessness that is completely different on earth and meet unique creatures that only see under the water.
