My trip from Koh Samui to Koh Tao went excellent; the boat was on time, the seats were comfy and the toilets were clean.

The boat arrived on time. But the AC was too high. It was raining so I couldn't go outside and was freezing sitting inside there. I eventually catched a cold :( It took us about 5 hours to arrive to koh tao. The ceiling had holes and on some point water came trough it because of the strong rain. Some passengers had to switch seats to avoid getting wet.

The waves were insane, obviously no one's fault. Literally everyone on the ferry ended up throwing up. I guess better check the weather beforehand and if you still wanna go be prepared with some seasick pills.
Ferry High Speed Ferry, Songserm (ส่งเสริม), Nov 23, 2023
It was not the best weather and the sea was rough. About 1/3 of the passengers got seasick, parts vomited. But as we heard, the other boats should be worse. There should be an Info/warning.
Ferry Speedboat, Lomprayah (ลมพระยา), Nov 21, 2023
Every time I travel with Lomprayah, I am once again positively surprised by the punctuality, reliability, and good service. I can only recommend it! Jedes mal wenn ich mit Lomprayah Reise bin ich erneut positiv überrascht über die Pünktlichkeit, Zuverlässigkeit und den guten Service. Kann ich nur empfehlen!
Ferry Catamaran, Lomprayah (ลมพระยา), Nov 11, 2023
Everything was wonderful, but the air conditioning inside was very cold. If you don't want to sit outside in the sun, you should dress warmly. (But maybe the same ship doesn't always sail on the connection).
