Guillaume Fargues – Platinum PADI Course Director /
EFR Instructor Trainer #482749




Guillaume took his first dive over 20 years ago in the cold waters of Northern France.

Before becoming a dive professional, he was working as a management consultant in Paris. Realizing he was more paasionate about being underwater than behind a desk, he decided to pack his diving gear and a pair of boardshorts and headed to Thailand. 

With 13 years of teaching experience he has trained many students from Open Water Diver to Instructor. As a PADI Course Director, Guillaume has been running the IDCs and other professional courses at Ban’s Diving Resort for over 8 years.

When he is not training Dive Instructors, he is often seen on the boat ready to jump in with his sidemount set.
