Lomprayah High Speed Ferry outside

Quick company intro: Lomprayah High Speed Ferries Co., Ltd. was established in 1999, featuring a unique fleet of high-speed catamaran ferries service from Koh Samui to Koh Phang, Koh-Tao, Chumphon and from Chumphon route to Bangkok by the A/C bus. Lomprayah High Speed Ferries is the first and the only one fast ferries operation in Thailand, giving you a journey that is all about speed, style and service. The company has 7 high speed ferries which are "Pralarn", "Namuang", "Maenam", "Koh Prab", "Thongsala", "Maehaad", "Thapdaorai" - and they are the fastest sea crossing in The Gulf of Thailand.

Pros: Compared to conventional ferries, Lomprayah fleet of smaller, faster vessels results in fast loading and uploading – couples with the fact that at all our cross Gulf of Thailand services are run from dedicated ports, makes travelling with Lomprayah a fast and hassle free experience.

Cons: higher price.

Lomprayah is one of the most reputable and largest companies taking travelers around Siam Gulf and to/from Bangkok and Andaman sea. They literally own some routes and even some islands - so if you can't fly there and not on super tight budget - go with them. Alternative is a bit cheaper Seatran.

Keep in mind

  1. A company of Lomprayah size of operations (taking around about 3,000 people a day over some complicated multi-modal routes) has certain employee turnover that may result in issues with delays, misunderstandings, or employees not speaking English. Please accept that fact - any company will have that issue in SEA unless you get some private driver in white gloves and cabbie cap. The company is doing all it can - rest please read in traveler reviews.
  2. You will be waiting in line to check in with a hundred of other travelers - inevitable. Have some beer before you get to a check-in point.
  3. Keep your travel inventory separated - a day backback with valuable / fragile stuff and a larger backpack with clothes and other things that may get wet and is ok to throw around.
  4. AC in the bus might be cold. Take another couple shirts with you (they give you a blanket but ... you know)
  5. You may get seasick, once again, YOU MAY GET SEASICK. It's a fast catamaran, you can't run away to catch your breath under a banyan tree. Especially that is in high wave seasons.

12Go recommends this company. There are not too many alternatives anyway - Siam gulf ferries serving similar routes are Seatran, Raja Ferry and Songserm and some other smaller night ferries. All other companies you may find as "bangkok to the islands" would be sharing these ferries and own land transport.

April 2017

Silvia, Apr 23, 2017 - Everything was ok we arrive at the time with no delay
Prakash, Apr 22, 2017 - Pretty comfortable. Reached Suratthani train station 3 hours before the departure and the waiting facilities were good. Overall satisfactory.
Steven, Apr 21, 2017 - Easy...able to sleep
Sian, Apr 21, 2017 - Operator drove us to Surat Thani. There he spent 30 minutes trying to sell trips before he allowed us back on bus to compete the journey
Ms, Apr 21, 2017 - Comfortable, safe and on time.
Tina, Apr 21, 2017 - Trip from Koh Samui - Ao Nang went smoothly. Boat left on time, staff were helpful. I recommend sitting outside, upstairs to enjoy the fresh air and the beautiful views while sailing. On the pier busses were waiting with destinations written on paper by the busses entrance doors, which made it super easy to navigate. The bus had aircondition, staff was nice, and I felt totally safe with the driver while driving through the beautiful landscape. In Krabi we were transfered to mini busses and taken to each of our hotels and I was pleasantly surprised that I landed at my hotel only two minutes after the scheduled time! I absolutely recommend this trip. Boat, bus and mini bus were clean and seemed in fine condition. I felt safe and in good hands all the way.
Lakshitha, Apr 19, 2017 - Very well organized trip. We arrived to Bangkok in time . Ferry ride was very good . Bus ride was fine even though they didn't offer snack & water as mentioned in the ticket . Overall , i'm very satisfied with their service . Highly recommended for everyone :)
Philip, Apr 19, 2017 - everything went to plan, on time and enjoyable experience. Recommended.
Philip, Apr 19, 2017 - everything went to plan and a smooth and enjoyable journey.
Paris, Apr 18, 2017 - Great little over night train, definitely worth the experience. I was worried about missing the stop but the staff come around and wake you up when you're there. The ferry trip to Koh Tao is beautiful and I recommend sitting at the top for the best veiws. luckily it was a calm day so it wasn't a rough trip, but I heard when it's a choppy sea day it can be a scurvy ride.
Emma, Apr 18, 2017 - Unbelievable how cold they put the air con! When I tried to go out I was quite rudely told not to go out by one of the staff. Thought I'd accidently ended up in Iceland, not a ferry to Koh Tao!
Paul, Apr 18, 2017 - Great
Li, Apr 17, 2017 - Lomprayah supplied high quality, fast and professional service. We are all very satisfied with the travel.
Li, Apr 17, 2017 - It was a safe and fast travel, and the ferry was clean. I was seated on upper deck, some passengers were naked upper body and smoking, I think it was disrespectful to other passengers, especially bad example to children.
Pawel, Apr 17, 2017 - Great services!!!!!!
Stuart, Apr 17, 2017 - Bus and ferry both were fine. Was charged 200pp for hotel transfer when booking at Suratthani station from ferry terminal on island to hotel yet it was advertised for 150pp once on island.
Khuram, Apr 16, 2017 - Ferry was overpacked, bus departure was late and the aircon was not working.
Alicia, Apr 15, 2017 - For that price we had a good trip from Hua Hin to Koh Pangang. It's a half day trip but very do-able if you can handle a few hours in the bus and then a few hours on the very cool catamaran. You can get a drink and a snack on board and there is also a toilet. You can even smoke on the back of the boat :)
Sheryl, Apr 15, 2017 - Very nice bus. The only issue was that the local office in Suratthani I was dropped off at on my return trip was further from the airport than the one I was picked up from so I didn't keep enough money for my taxi.
Julie, Apr 15, 2017 - Everything went very smooth. easy trip!
Joseph, Apr 15, 2017 - Too many stops.
Inna, Apr 14, 2017 - Super freundliches Team! Alles hat bestens geklappt :) der Bus und die Fähre sind richtig modern und sehr angenehm. Jederzeit wieder!
Karl, Apr 14, 2017 - We found Seatran service better, less crowded and less hectic.
Francisco, Apr 13, 2017 - It was easy to exchange our printed confirmation for the ferry tickets in Koh Tao. Ferry was with Lomprayah, very good service. Will use again!
Li, Apr 13, 2017 - The ferry and the bus are well maintained. I like the stop over for dinner and the meal was very affordable. The bus changed to a different arrival station which kinda messed up my calculation for taxi distance to hotel.
Bonn, Apr 13, 2017 - aircon on the bus was slow
Lionel, Apr 11, 2017 - Bus was pretty warm for the night and wasn't very pleasant to sleep in. You have to queue for check in and there were so many of us.
Carolina, Apr 9, 2017 - Much more expensive than buying directly and poor service.
Sarah, Apr 9, 2017 - Ferry itself is comfortable and fast but the piers are an absolute cluster f***. Not enough waiting room for the number of people they service.
Lu, Apr 9, 2017 - Fast and convenient
Kim, Apr 8, 2017 - Well organized, efficient and timely.
Angela, Apr 8, 2017 - Bus was late, toilet was nasty, but the people were friendly.
Gary, Apr 7, 2017 - Great trip - we arrived a little early - kept us well informed & had time to board & leave for ferry - all good & timings excellent
Lidia, Apr 6, 2017 - Very good trip, the only problem to point out was the long waiting time between the bus trip and the speed boat, 3h.
Jan, Apr 5, 2017 - The bus seats were uncomfortable. Guidance by the staff started at the station, and was excellent ask the way.
Kate, Apr 5, 2017 - Lovely clean and cool bus. Easy transfer onto the ferry
Arielle, Apr 4, 2017 - The trip was fine. There wasn't much room for your feet on the bus but it got us there safely. Also wish the bus left later so we didn't have to wait at the dock for 2 hours before the ferry left. That's Thailand though, you get what you pay for.
Melody, Apr 3, 2017 - Great! Very organized.
Jamie, Apr 3, 2017 - Everything went smoothly except at Suratthani they charged us 400 Baht for a ride to our hotel on Koh Samui and advertised 300 Baht ($150 per person) on the ferry! Not cool!
Elizabeth, Apr 2, 2017 - Great service from 12 Go - no hassle with the tickets. We actually ended up buying a ticket from Koh Phangan to Koh Samui in order to connect with the ticket we'd bought through 12 Go - and the staff on the Lomprayah ferry were excellent ensuring that we had the right tickets (and luggage labels) for the transfer through. Couldn't fault the service.
