Royal Passenger Liner High Speed Ferry outside
Royal Passenger Liner

Royal Passenger Liner has one ferry so far, accommodating up to 150 people, running daily between Pattaya and Hua Hin, shortening down the trip to 1.40h comparing to many hours in the bus running via Bangkok.
Operations started Jan 2017.

Pros: quick, high quality
Cons: 3x bus price

Take it if you value comfort and time more than money. Good for tourists, not very good for frequent commuting.

There is an ordinary deck - very comfortable though, not 3rd class at all, first class deck and 8-seater VIP room you can book only at the whole at about $400.

Please do come in advance! The departure time really depends on the weather and tides, and they can start off bit earlier than they advertise.

For Foreigners - please hold a valid passport.

June 2017

Geoffrey, Jun 30, 2017 - Everything went smoothly. The staff were polite and friendly, the seats are comfortable. I will use this service again and would recommend it to other people. Be aware that you cannot take alcoholic drinks on board
Anthony, Jun 27, 2017 - Disappointing to have no wifi on board and especially in business class not to have better choice of food - otherwise all good
Rhian, Jun 25, 2017 - Didn't make it as your emails and phone messages were too late.you knew the day before the time had changed so why did you leave it 15 minutes before departure to send us an email. I had already checked my emails that morning to make sure and I had nothing off you until 11:45.The royal said they'd informed you a few days earlier. We had to cancel our travel plans. Will be recommending everyone book directly with ferry from now on.
Sarah, Jun 19, 2017 - Fantastic service!
Shane, Jun 19, 2017 - Trip on ferry was excellent. Had to wait too long on pier prior to leaving. No need to be there an hour beforehand
Lee, Jun 17, 2017 - Great service. Arrived only 10 minutes before boarding due to bad traffic, they were very understanding and welcoming. Journey seemed to go very quickly and free refreshments were served. No complaints, Happy customer!
Richard, Jun 17, 2017 - Fantastic quiet and fast trip
Ho, Jun 12, 2017 - Good service! Very helpful!
Praveen, Jun 12, 2017 - Booking was easy, prompt communication from 12go. The liner was good, comfortable,good hospitality and a happy sailing.
Alexander, Jun 7, 2017 - I don't think it's good service to allow a ferry to operate with broken air-conditioning. The doors are not permitted to be opened during the trip. So it was like a sauna inside. I saw two people get sick. Additionally, there should be an air-conditioned holding area at the Hua Hin pier. They ask that people arrive an hour before, but you just sit in the heat. There is a roof to cover you, but it was exceedingly hot the day I traveled. This ferry is an excellent idea, but with one scheduled trip a day, these are minimal service requests that lesser-developed countries have. This shouldn't be too hard to accomplish.
Cheung, Jun 5, 2017 - Quiet good

May 2017

Roynard, May 27, 2017 - Efficient and quick. Saved 4 hours of motorway mayhem !
Christopher, May 22, 2017 - Good service. A small shop on board would be good. Also 2 different seats I tried had broke back rests.
John, May 19, 2017 - Perfect trip, and nice personell
Raymond, May 15, 2017 - It was good to see there was security checking baggage and the staff were all very professional and helpful. The crossing itself was easy and the seas were calm, we sat in the Business Class seats and it was well worth the extra cost, the seat was comfortable and you can recline back, I slept for part of the trip. I felt very safe on the ferry, it was in good condition and there was plenty of staff on board to assist with anything.
Kjell, May 14, 2017 - Very good !
John, May 12, 2017 - Very good boat, and quick
Robert, May 11, 2017 - Once again no need to be at departure point so early. Not necessary. Staff very good and smart in their uniforms. Trip enjoyable. Good service.
James, May 10, 2017 - As with the rest of Thailand, half of the staff are on their cell phones. The other half are doing their job adequately.
Brennan, May 10, 2017 - Overall enjoyable experience. Traveling from Pattaya to Hua Hin it was difficult to figure out where to go and how to find the departure pier.
Brunelle, May 9, 2017 - We enjoy our trip, but you need to make something to the cockroaches!!! We have one on our body when we seat down!!!
Robert, May 8, 2017 - I think 30mins before departure for checkin would be better 60 mins too long sitting in the heat. However the staff were very efficient and friendly and the trip was great. Bob.Australia
Huseyin, May 8, 2017 - Very good service. Ferry was fast and comfortable.
Pablo, May 5, 2017 - good organised and very helpfull staff. there was told to be at the pier minimum 60 min in advance but I think 30 min is more than enough.
Alan, May 4, 2017 - Bit of a wait at check in as they could not find my booking done on line 10 days ago. Once sorted it was perfect. Thank you
Francis, May 4, 2017 - Great crossing to Hua Hin. Left on time, arrived on time. It beats the almost 6 hour bus journey. Comfortable business class seats. However, quite expensive, the boat needs a 'snacks' kiosk on board. Also, unless you have transportation the Hua Hin taxis are expensive. I've been back in my apartment nearly two hours, the bus will not arrive at HH for another 2 1/2 hours
Kim, May 3, 2017 - Its avery good service to bad not an earlier trip, -7AM

April 2017

Kamal, Apr 25, 2017 - Good but some snacks should be there
Robert, Apr 24, 2017 - Good trip, ac on board and water/coffee to drink
Erik, Apr 24, 2017 - Correct trip , little bit expensive but good service
Aaron, Apr 24, 2017 - All standing at the big big sun to wait for check in, staff will standing to hide sun .. Who is wait passenger(staff) or customer.. a big big comments for royal . No helpful and serve... experience 1250 baht for Royal
Gregory, Apr 21, 2017 - Ferry crossing was very calm & departed on schedule. Once through security having to sit in an outside waiting room in 30 degree heat was challenging. On arrival the luggage free for all was totally disorganised. Ferry crossing however, far more convenient than road alternative.
Cameron, Apr 21, 2017 - Great convenient service. First class freindly staff, clean fast boat. Some suggestions: - put up a webpage for petes sake with the schedule. Is it daily or three times a week? You have to troll message boards and tourist websites to find out. - dont make people print their tickets that are purchased on line. Have a pickup option at the ferry dock, or just allow a scan of their smartphone. Where does a tourist get a printer? :-) Thank you!
David, Apr 21, 2017 - Dirty sear cover. No provision for going onto deck. Overprice taxi on arriving hua hin.
Jonathan, Apr 21, 2017 - Very good
Leyann, Apr 20, 2017 - Left on time, comfy seats (had business class), loos clean. Reason it doesn't get 5* is it's too expensive. Downstairs was nearly empty. Drop the price and it will make a lot more money! Also, the margin for the travel company was high. Better booking direct at the pier!
