“Welcome aboard, my name is Johnny and I will be your Captain today”. During our time on Koh Tao my partner and I chose to do our diving and rock climbing with Goodtime Adventures. There are a few reasons for this. We like a company that has smaller faster boats compared to the lumbering hulks that take 3 hours to... More

I chose Goodtimes for my open-water and general hangout hotspot for the duration of my stay in koh Tao for many reasons- the great food, drinks, and most of all, the people. I was lucky enough to have Linzi as my instructor, and boy were we lucky! I saw a turtle and a school of Cobia among other things- literally... More

After reading good reviews about GTA i decided to get my SSI open water with this company. No regrets at all! It was everything this experience need to be: fun, exciting and, very important, i felt comfortable and safe! Mark Knue was the instructor and a big 👌 for him! Thanks for the lovely experience!

Look no further. Goodtime diving has everything you are looking for, and more you haven't even considered. Whether a newbie or veteran to diving, Goodtime has great equipment, the best guides on the island and a personal and friendly atmosphere (no huge group tour dives). Goodtime is chill, quality and professional. I completed my open water course with Mark as... More
