Welcome to Goodtime Thailand


We are a friendly boutique dive, outdoor pursuits, and hostels company offering small group adventure activities on the islands of Koh Tao and Koh Phangan. We pride ourselves in taking a more flexible, personal approach allowing us to custom-make our schedules to better suit your needs.

We specialise in diving, and run PADI and SSI courses, refreshers and fun dives on a daily basis. All trips are run from one of our three purpose built dive boats directly from the beach right in front of our shop. Our vessels take 7 to 20 divers, ensuring more comfortable journeys and less time waiting for other groups to do their thing.

Student numbers on both courses and fun dives are restricted to four per instructor, allowing you to get the most out of your time with us. Bigger groups can be accommodated if required though. For group sizes above the standard four, we will provide you with two members of staff! Unlike most other dive centres we stagger our departure times, allowing a later start (more sleepy time for you!) and arrival time at dive sites, so even at the most popular locations you will see more fish and less other divers!

We vary our dive site schedules so you can see the broadest range of dive sites available, and run regular trips to Sail Rock – widely renowned as the best dive site in the Gulf of Thailand. And the best bit? No long journeys! Our speedy boats cut travel time down to a minimum. Aside from diving, our boats are also used for conducting water sports such as wakeboarding and water-skiing. We are an official BSAC Seamanship centre, and having two speedboats allows us the flexibility to teach boat handling courses.

We also provide a full range of land based activities. We are the only rock climbing school in the Gulf of Thailand, running introductory classes, courses and guides every day. Again we keep student numbers to a minimum, allowing you to gain more experience and confidence under the supervision of our experienced and friendly staff. This is also true of our abseiling, hiking, cliff jumping and snorkelling tours.

We run two highly-regarded beach hostels on Koh Tao and Koh Phangan. Our Koh Tao hostel is the #1 rated hostel on Hostelworld for the island and has won Certificates of Excellence for 2015 and 2016 from TripAdvisor. Our newest location on Koh Phangan opened in July 2016 in a prime spot right on the beach just 2km from the island pier.

All of our equipment and facilities are maintained to the highest of standards, and our staff is comprised of a team of vastly experienced and skilled professionals.
