What a great four hours with GTA spent out on their speedboat. Flash and Francois managed to keep us all alive as we dived off 3, 9 & 12 meter jumps into clear blue water. After this we hooked up the tube to the back of the boat and had great fun flying along on the inflatable at high speed,... More

Hello AC1226 It's great to hear that you had so much fun with us! Flash and Francois will be so pleased to hear your comments. They are both big fans of the cliff jumping and tubing too. On a tropical island like Koh Tao the weather can be changeable and unpredictable. That is why we always do everything we can... More

I went scuba diving through Goodtime Adventures (as well as snorkelling) and it was beyond amazing. Dan, my diving instructor, was very personal and hilarious. Seeing that I was the only PADI certified diver, him and I explored Koh Tao together and I wouldn't trade it for the world. Dan really has a passion for diving and it definitely shows!!... More

Through Contiki we did a day snorkeling trip though Goodtime Adventures, Definitely moneys worth. The guys were so friendly and fun. Having a cooler-box with drinks was definitely the highlight as well. Unfortunately the weather wasn't so great the day we went snorkeling, It was a bit windy so the water was choppy.

Just a quick note to express how much we enjoyed our afternoon trapeze lessons with Gemma and Shawn! My 16yo daughter and I had the most fun learning how to fly- and she even made a catch! Instruction was clear and comforting (even though I am scared of heights). We both thought this was one of the top activities that... More
