Dive the Goodtime Way

Here at Goodtime Thailand we offer small group training (maximum 4 people), that is personable and flexible to suit you. As we keep our group sizes small you get more one-on-one time from your instructor and more time during your open water dives to explore the beautiful underwater world. Our dive boats will take you directly from the beach to the dive site and this means we have flexibility to change dive sites if the conditions are not as expected. We want you to feel safe both under and above the water and more importantly, have a Goodtime!

Never dived before? Get your Open Water Certification through either of our training agencies, SSI or PADI, and be certified for life! If you already have your certification, come Fun Diving with us on our custom-built speedboats!

Or if you’re already a diver and would like to learn how to go deeper, longer, darker and get your Advanced Open Water certification, or take it to the next level with speciality courses like Nitrox, Wreck Diver, Rescue Diver, and so many more.

Don’t have the time or budget for a certification course? Why not just Try Scuba Diving? It’s a half day experience with an instructor where you can do 2 dives. If you love it you can even use the second dive as credit towards your Open Water Certification!

If you want to save time on you holiday, contact us today to begin your learning. With SSI all you need to do is set up a profile for yourself on their website, download the FREE divessi app and we can send your training materials straight to your phone or tablet. What could be easier?!

New to Diving

Course Outline

Koh Tao is known as THE place to learn to dive and there are lot of schools to choose from.

Here at Goodtimes we offer small group training (maximum 4 students per instructor) meaning you get more one-on-one time with your instructor. It also means when you are on your training dives, you get to spend more time being a diver and enjoying the beautiful underwater world rather than watching your fellow students complete skills. All of this will ensure you are a better trained diver in the end. To give you the best experience possible, we limit the number of divers on each of our boats to ensure a more personal service whilst keeping our dive sessions relaxed and comfortable.

Learning to dive opens up a whole new world of experiences. Our priority is to make sure you feel safe both above and below the water and most importantly have a Goodtime!

As with all physical activities, a certain level of health and fitness is required. Contact us today for more information.

If it’s been a while since your last diving holiday you’ll want to refresh your knowledge and skills before heading down into the blue.

One of our experienced staff will run you through a knowledge review to recap on safe diving practices, dive planning and problem management. Then you’ll go over equipment fitting and set up, before jumping into a shallow water session to revisit those essential dive skills you learnt in your initial training. By the end of your refresher you’ll be feeling comfortable and confident underwater, and ready to join us on further diving adventures.

Out in the water you will learn a myriad of new skills and situations, including self-rescue, diver stress, diver panic, underwater problems, emergency management and equipment considerations, missing diver procedures and how to handle an unconscious diver. You will also be presented with some simulated scenarios, where you get to put your new skills and know-how into practice. Challenging, yes, but also heaps of fun. We’re sure you’ll love it.
