Scuba Shane Diving was born from the passion of Shane Coote. He now offers specialised courses for scuba in Brisbane. Shane completed his Open Water Diver Course in 1999. Since then, he fell in love with diving. Shane has spent the better half of the past decade diving at local sites in South East Queensland. As a result, he slowly gained more experience, culminating in becoming a scuba diving instructor.

While completing his Rescue Diver Course, Shane was serving in the Defence Force but still made time to pursue his passion for scuba diving. He took advantage of any opportunity that presented itself to gain more diving knowledge. This included working at a local dive shop, enabling him to learn more about scuba diving equipment. While employed as a firefighter in the Queensland Fire Service, Shane also completed his professional diving courses during his time off duty. Today, Shane runs Scuba Shane Diving in partnership with Scuba Diving International (SDI). His business has become one of the most successful businesses for scuba diving in Brisbane.

A little more of Shane’s story…

I have been diving all over the world but mostly in Australia’s eastern coast. Many of my clients ask me which is my favourite dive site in South East Queensland, but this is really hard to answer! Indeed, each dive offers a wonderful and unique scuba diving experience. Recently, I realised that my passion is to share with others the joy I feel when diving. I absolutely love being a scuba instructor. I take great pride in teaching my students the skills needed to enjoy scuba diving in Brisbane. Sharing these adventures has brought me more excitement than simply looking at any whale or turtle. Although, words cannot describe how wonderful it is to witness these amazing creatures in their natural environment!

I teach a vast range of scuba diving skills, from basic learn-to-dive and Open Water Diver Courses, to Advanced Diver and specialised diving skills (e.g. Advanced First Aid). I also have a high level of experience in the administration of medical oxygen and first aid. I attribute this to my experience while working as a firefighter.

Surely, at the end of the day, it’s all about having fun! Certainly, I do my best to ensure that all scuba diving adventures are positive experiences for my clients. Further, I understand the responsibilities of maintaining a professional standard at all times. This includes the highest possible safety standards and state-of-the-art diving equipment. Indeed, the dive computers and integrated Buoyancy Control Devices (BCD) we offer are all the latest in scuba technology. We offer these for hire to all our students.
