I recently did my OWD course with Dan Halmi as my instructor. I had done all the readings needed beforehand so we were able to get all the academics out of the way. I had only given myself three days in Koh Tao for the 2.5 days needed to do the course. He was able to structure my dives so... More

I chose this diving school for a try dive. Was really impressed from the start when I booked - staff talked me through what to expect. On the day our instructor, Lesley, was fantastic. She walked us through all the skills and safety aspects really clearly. She and the other boat staff and instructors obviously know the island and the... More

Goodtime in Koh Tao is the best place to do your Scuba Diving Certificate and I would highly recommend Daniel Halmi as the best instructor. He was super patient and helped me to overcome my fear of deep weather :) Had amazing time there and would love to go back !!!!!!!!!!

I went on a snorkelling trip with Goodtime Adventures and it was such an amazing experience. The equipment provided was cleaned and in good condition. The stopping points were really good. The crew members were very helpful and good fun, and on the boat they offered fresh fruit (free of charge) and cold drinks. On top of this we also... More

I did 6 dives with Goodtime (shoutout to Martin and Sian!) from both their big dive boat and the smaller speedboat and they were all fantastic. It was my first time diving in tropical water (I learned in the Pacific Northwest) and I was really thrilled with the warm temps and amazing sea life, especially at the Chumpon Peninsula site....

After getting bored from hanging at the beach I decided to book the toprope climving course. Actually great decision! My guide Emiel teached me with endless patience and a great sense of humour. The view from the top over the island was priceless besides challenging the inner borders. Thank you emiel for that awesome day, definitely would book it again!... More

Went rock climbing with Emiel and if I'll ever return to Koh Tao, I'd def do it again! As a beginner it was an incomparable experience for me and I was stretched to my limits. With Emiel being all patient and joking all the time it was such a fun thing to do. Best instructor!

Flash takes you over the island on a nice walk. On the other side you have the opportunity to jump from the rocks up to 12m, if you dare. Afterwards snorkeling is possible and nice and Tim takes you back on the speedboat. Much fun!
