Pros

This is one of the fastest and easiest ways to get to Koh Phi Phi.

All boats have air-conditioning.

There is a range of add-ons such as hotel pick up and you can also book a hotel in Koh Phi Phi through Chaokoh Travel Center.

You can book tickets online.

Cons

Boats do not run during storms or heavy rain.

Some boats are delayed in line with the tides.

There have been some reports of the air-conditioning not working on some boats.

Due to the high passenger to seat ratio the boats can feel a little cramped.

Keep in mind

It is imperative to print a paper copy of your ticket as copies of the PDF on a phone may not be accepted.

If possible leave time if you are travelling on to another destination as the boats can sometimes be delayed which means you may miss your connecting transport.

Travellers reviews

The overwhelming majority of travellers report easy and smooth journey with Chaokoh Travel Center with the major issue being luggage piled all together what makes it difficult to hunt for your own bag at the end of the journey.

Though occasional delays are sometimes reported, note that they can be due to the tide and not the fault of the company. Also, cancellations can happen due to stormy weather – be ready and have plan B in case it happens. Never ever plan short flight connections – you won’t be reimbursed the lost air-ticket.

At 12Go our operators offer three types of service:

Cheap, Fast, Good - but you can usually pick only two of them!
Cheap & Fast won’t be Good. (e.g. buses from/to Khao San Road, local buses or 3rd class trains)
Cheap & Good won’t be Fast. (e.g. VIP trains in Thailand)
Fast & Good won’t be Cheap. (e.g. private limousine services, or VIP24 buses vs Express buses)

Make your choice! Please remember that while we are closely monitoring the services, we are still an agency marketplace. That means we focus on ticketing services and route availability & coverage rather than on the factual seat reclining angle you will get on the bus today.

The boat ride was good, just watch out for the scam artist at the Phuket pier that tells you to book your Phi Phi to Phuket ticket now because it’s 650 tbh on Phi Phi and he’ll give you a deal of 450 tbh. Thank goodness I had a feeling something was up and didn’t buy them because they were 350 tbh on Phi Phi. Sad how much there trying to scam the system and the people traveling to Thailand to support there economy....

First time users: you mneed to bring a copy of your receipt to the dock. There you find those in uniform matching your ferry company. They will verify your purchase and allow you on board. That easy. Very timely ferry. Advice: book taxi on ferry to have ease of transfers to your lodging.

Was more expensive then buying ticket at the pier.( 100 bath p.p. More.) Brought us to the Island as we wanted. Surprise was the 20 bath p.p.coming from the boat, to enter Koh Phi Phi. Cought the local taxi from Krabi town to the Klong Jilad Pier for 50 bath p.p. Nice man driving, cheerfull.

We booked with 12GoAsia. Was more expensive then booking at the pier. Also the transport going to the pier can easily be booked at the town by the street . And back at the pier to town where several vans are waiting to bring you. That is half the price instead of booking everything in advance. We paid 450,- for one way ferry to Koh Phi Phi and 100,- for vantransport to town p.p. Time travelling with ferry was 2 hours.

Unfortunately we left with a delay of 30min. Also at the exit there was a clear delay because the crew apparently couldn't find the roachy ladder to the exit. The ship is old and relatively unkempt, there is some rubbish and building material lying around. We had almost no contact with the crew. Positive: There are cool drinks and snacks to buy on board.

So far everything went fine... Boat was very old, quite dirty and the salesman where a bit overdone with selling anything from taxi service to rooms and even more during the whole boat ride. Seemed like booking a cruise with a sales presentation for other things ... ????
