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.

March 2017

Ann, Mar 24, 2017 - Had no problem with the trip. Took longer than expected but there is a lot of construction on the way
Parmentier, Mar 24, 2017 - Les siège à l'arrière du bus étaient casse et ne se basculait plus. Le bus a eu 1h30 de retard.
Moses, Mar 23, 2017 - Pretty smoothe quick ride. Too bad it doesn't leave later and arrive closer to ferry time... had to wait 2.5 hrs... hard to get any real sleep
Colin, Mar 23, 2017 - Well organised. Easy trip. Smoother than previous years.
Andrew, Mar 22, 2017 - The seat in the bus was uncomfortable, the cushion needs replacing. The bus arrived too early (04:35) at the jetty for the ferry which didn't depart until just after 07:30, some 3 hr wait. Upon arrival at the jetty, the shops were still closed. No one to explain what the process would be. I won't use this service again ????
Heather, Mar 22, 2017 - Easy, fast, clean and beautiful scenery
Trevor, Mar 20, 2017 - Return trip to Surat Thani was very smooth and on time! Highly recommend this service.
Borislav, Mar 20, 2017 - The boat was fine but the bus travel was really unpleasant as it was extremely hot due to a brokren aircondition system.
William, Mar 20, 2017 - Excellent comfortable trip. First class cabins very good and worth the little extra
Amanda, Mar 16, 2017 - Good service. Pleasant staff
Heather, Mar 14, 2017 - Train dirty. Wait from 430-6 brutal. Ferry fast and fresh
Lemmo, Mar 14, 2017 - Transport was okey. But next time print just a4 paper with trip names. Its 1000x easier. One guy says go there, other said to there, thrird go there. So where. Please do something about this. Cheers!
Stepan, Mar 14, 2017 - Great service!
Edoardo, Mar 14, 2017 - They didn't stop at the airport although they said they would have done it. However, they managed to bring us 5 km away from the airport for free
Juan, Mar 14, 2017 - From Koh phanghan to Koh tao we travelled on the floor.
Francesco, Mar 14, 2017 - Luggage on the ferry were stored and collected by ourselves, you can imagine the confusion. After that we left for bangkok where the bus arrived with 2 hours of delay. I have done the arrival trip bangkok-koh tao and everything went quite well, but this time I'm disappointed
Binu, Mar 13, 2017 - Really excellent
Trevor, Mar 13, 2017 - About 1 hour late... Great trip but when I book the ferry ahead of time for a certain time it's frustrating when I get there and then am informed that the boat leaves in an hour. Boat is nice though and would still recommend.
Jatin, Mar 13, 2017 - Very good service.
Brandon, Mar 13, 2017 - everything ran very smoothly and the staff was very helpful
Linda, Mar 12, 2017 - I loved it so much fun thank you!
Lynn, Mar 12, 2017 - Ferry fast and efficient!
Stephanie, Mar 10, 2017 - Bus was on time, the journey was quick! Was a good day traveling. TAKE SNACKS! You will be hungry as it is a long trip.
Nebojsa, Mar 10, 2017 - Absolutely without any problems, usually different boat services share a big bus from the airport, but a few groups bundled up and they took us an hour early by van. Boat was great, we arrived earlier than said we would. Need to ask here and there where the counter is, but in general no problems.
Ann, Mar 9, 2017 - Good service
Georgia, Mar 7, 2017 - I was actually really impressed with the lomprayah service. It was really well organised, everything went smoothly and easily and I would definitely recommend! Will also be using them on my return trip.
Deanna, Mar 7, 2017 - Trip was awesome, only thing that wasn't good about the trip was that when the ferry was over the food stands did not sell the foods that they offered, after a long ferry and a 7 hour bus ride it would of been great to have lunch at the stop when we had to wait for 30 minutes
Cecilie, Mar 7, 2017 - Well organised and comfortable bus and ferry. But, would have been good with at least one stop during bus ride ( to get food, go to toilet etc). Ferry took a lot longer than expected
Shirwankumar, Mar 5, 2017 - absolutely nice.zero problem
Vikramjeet, Mar 5, 2017 - Couldn't be better, smooth transfers,great view sitting outside and arrived before time
Bram, Mar 5, 2017 - Smooth ocean and a fast trip, thank you!

February 2017

David, Feb 28, 2017 - Good safe and fair priced trip. All connections were on time train ..bus and ferry. Thanks
Michelle, Feb 28, 2017 - Bus and ferry were both clean and comfortable. Only negative is that the train arrives at 4.15am and the bus doesn't pick you up until 6am at the train station. It would be better if the bus picked you up earlier and you waited at the ferry, better facilities there than the train station or obviously if the boat left earlier!
