On our last day in Koh Tao, my girlfriend and I wanted to do one last dive in the beautiful waters Koh Tao has to offer. She did her Open Water at Big Water and I did a few fun dives with them as well. Big Blue was a decent operation as it provided a lot of structure and routine to the dives. But since we only had one more day, we wanted a more personal experience considering it was our last day to enjoy. We were prowling the area the evening before our last day and getting quotes and basic info from every dive shop on the beach. Most were the same deal and price until we stopped into GOOD TIME ADVENTURES...Good Time had a different vibe straight away and for good reason. Although they obviously offered diving they provided an array of other services as well (rock climbing, jet skiing, hiking, wake boarding etc). Their diving was a bit different too, as it was via SPEED BOAT. I have never dove by speed boat and the coast different was nominal so we were sold. We throw down a reasonable deposit (50%) and we were all scheduled to come back in around 9am (super reasonable time). This was another HUGE selling point, not having to waking up at 6am and dive with the hoards of others schools. We were told that because of the later start we would have the ocean to ourselves, which was for the most part correct:)
We were a little lucky and my girlfriend and I were the only divers. So it was me, my gf, the DM and the boat captain for the 2 dives starting around 9am. This was another awesome aspect of diving with them (the small/private groups).
I will spare any reader the details of the specific dive, but it was great diving and the staff and DM and Captain were great. We were able to basically choose which dive site we wanted and they were very accommodating and chilled with the whole process.
I'd HIGHLY suggest doing a speed boat dive, and the price Good Time offers compared to a resort speed boat is fantastic.
