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.

November 2017

Malgorzata, Nov 12, 2017 - On time and inexpensive although very crowded. The Phuket to Phi Phi shop definitely more comfortable but altogether very happy with the experience.
Pablo, Nov 9, 2017 - Tardamos 2:30 cuando supuestamente te demoraba 1:30 en llegar. El barco está poco mantenido habia muchos asientos rotos etc
Jessica, Nov 8, 2017 - 20B entrance fee should be mentioned
Simone, Nov 7, 2017 - Not fast as the description
Edson, Nov 5, 2017 - Good ferry altough it doesn't have air condition
Simone, Nov 2, 2017 - 2.30 Hours NOT 1.30 Hours
Alan, Nov 1, 2017 - Uneventful trip, but cleanliness of interior cabin could be improved. No assistance getting heavy luggage off the boat.

October 2017

Christine, Oct 28, 2017 - Everything was great! My only problem was having crew members smoking as we came on board, not the nicest greeting, but other than that it was fine.
Christine, Oct 25, 2017 - Pretty smooth ride, seats pretty close together so a bit claustrophobic and crowded with carry ons but boarding and unloading was a smooth, uncomplicated process!

August 2017

Martina, Aug 30, 2017 - The ferry left in time but it arrived half hour later than expected (I don't understand why you keep saying it'll arrive at xxx hour when it definitely arrives always later). Moreover, they try to sell you tickets for taxi or boats to reach your hotel: DON'T buy it!! They say it's cheaper than buying it outside but that's not true!! You can always find better offers outside the piers
Martina, Aug 27, 2017 - It arrived so late!! The ticket says it takes 1h30min to get to Phi Phi but actually it took 2h30min
Kasper, Aug 8, 2017 - Nothing to write home about really.. one tip I would like to give: if you buy your ticket on board the boat (from phi phi to Krabi) for the trip from Krabi pier to railay beach / ao nang beach for 150 baht, don't get scammed on you way out buy guys tryIng to convince you need to pay extra. Sounds trivial but the can get quite sneaky.. be warned!
Daan, Aug 7, 2017 - Very hot on the boat, unhuman conditions. Onethical. I feel discriminated as tourist and as long person. 150 baht more and i had to walk on my knees not to pain my head. Meh.
Ainsley, Aug 6, 2017 - Hot and 40 min late, almost missed a flight I had to catch after

July 2017

Ellen, Jul 20, 2017 - Old and dirty boat; also the toilet. Small chairs.
Aldwin, Jul 20, 2017 - On our way to koh Phi Phi it was enough to show our e-ticket on my cellphone. So when we took the ferry back to Krabi we thaught the guidelines were the same. But they were not! When we arrived at the check-in 10 minutes before take-off this guy told us to go find a printer or buy a new ticket. He had no empathy and he didn't care if we would miss the ferry. We are sick and tired of People making up rules to get more money, to get us to buy a new ticket. They take advantage of the fact that we're in a foreign country and Often depend on other People.
Benjamin, Jul 18, 2017 - super
Alysha, Jul 15, 2017 - took much longer than was said before. boat in very bad conditions. staff didn't help with getting the baggage on board.

June 2017

Shaun, Jun 25, 2017 - Disappointing that the boat was delayed two hours due to religious reasons, and not be told. To be told the ferry at Phi Phi would be delayed as well, and it wasn't meaning we missed it and had to wait 3 hours, so total delay of 5 hours resulting in a missed flight from Phuket. Very dissapoting communication
Andrey, Jun 15, 2017 - Unloading of laggage needs improvement. Boat team needs to direct people
Scott, Jun 9, 2017 - Very good. But didn't accept e-ticket
Alexandra, Jun 5, 2017 - Not enough life vests. Seemed the boat was overcrowded as well. Not safe

May 2017

Dani, May 31, 2017 - Easy to follow instructions by crew. AC in boat. Got slightly nauseated, so be careful if you're easily seasick.
Luca, May 26, 2017 - Passenger are was freezing cold, we had to stay on the floor of baggage area. Staff was rude, unable and unwilling to help laughing to passenger and do t speaking english at all. The boat was one hour late at Krabi. Dreadful experience
Jose, May 13, 2017 - Expensive ticket. They so many more ways to go from Phi Phi to Phucket. And with so many more timetable to pick
Rui, May 8, 2017 - Nice and pleasant

April 2017

Egita, Apr 15, 2017 - The trip did not last 1 and a half hour, the transfer took more than 2 hours. That is why we only can give 4 stars :)
Josh, Apr 9, 2017 - Amazing from the company. Super helpful staff in Krabi when I had a problem!
Kate, Apr 5, 2017 - Absolute chaios at the ferry port getting onto the ferry. Ferry did not have air con. Beautiful scenery but like a bun fight getting off.

March 2017

Yoonjae, Mar 30, 2017 - Poor service! I booked an online ticket to Ao Nang. However, the staff directed me to a wrong ferry to Krabi, and they charged me another 450THB for a taxi to Ao Nang. SUCH A FRAUD!
Michele, Mar 18, 2017 - I sent a message to change the date and nobody answered me
Badano, Mar 12, 2017 - Excelent

February 2017

Edward, Feb 27, 2017 - Easy to yse service
Daniel, Feb 24, 2017 - Boat was over 45 min too late, therefore i did not get my flight which i booked in package with the ferry. I had to pay 4400 baht for a later plane to bangkok, and missed an appointment there. No refund or anything. Never again!!!
De, Feb 20, 2017 - Departure deleted with 15 minutes and 30 min longer at sea as mentioned
Castanha, Feb 15, 2017 - Luxurious experience. Ferry department from origin and reached destination on time
Castanha, Feb 15, 2017 - Wonderful experience. The ferry was on time and luxurious
Medro, Feb 13, 2017 - Should have been booked on a 3 hr ferry directly to Koh Lanta. Instead I was taken on a 4 hour van ride to a further pier and an awful 3+ hour ferry ride in a boat with no AC. On top of it we paid over double what we would have if we booked on our own. Avoid .
Gianluca, Feb 10, 2017 - Abbastanza puntuali traghetto comodo personale gentile, per servizio bagaglio bisogma chiederlo e sono celeri nel accontenavi. Con servizio bar a bordo
Catalina, Feb 6, 2017 - I gave my voucher to a man who told me that the boat in which I had to seat in was a green one. We sat down, put all our things, and suddenly another man started offering transportation to Phuket, and we were going to Krabi. I stood up inmediately and asked a man in the boat and did not understand me. I went off the boat and several men told me that I had to take ANOTHER BOAT. We really rushed as we had to look for our bags and baggage and went to the other boat (the correct one). We stepped in, sat down and BOAT DEPARTED. IF I HAD TRUSTED THEM, THE BOAT WOULD HAVE TAKEN ME FROM PHI PHI TO PHUKET AND THAT WOULD HAVE BEEN A DISASTER IN MY TRIP SCHEDULE AS WE HAD TO GO TO KRABI TO TAKE A PLANE!!!!! Once inside, we could not breath!!! Everyone went outside the boat to breath because inside was imposible. I HERELY DO NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT RECOMMED THIS COMPANY OR THIS TRIP. I ASKED THEM A LOT OF TIMES WHICH BOAT, AND THEY APPARENTLY DID NOT SEE MY VOUCHER AND MADE ME SIT DOWN IN ANYYY BOAT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! DISASTER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
