Satun Pakbara Speed Boat Club is an operator based in the southern province of Satun that offers tours, transport services and speedboat charters.
Routes served by Satun Pakbara Speed Boat Club
The most popular speedboat routes include:
– Koh Lipe–Koh Phi Phi: the journey takes around 4 hours and is quite pricy at THB2.600; but it is the fastest way to travel between the two destinations.
– Koh Lipe–Langkawi: a 2h30m sea journey brings you from Thailand to Malaysia and costs THB1.200. It is probably the easiest way to cross the border between Malaysia and Thailand, especially if you travel from Langkawi to Koh Lipe.
– Koh Lanta–Phuket: probably not the most obvious way to travel between the two islands but definitely the fastest one at 1h30m and THB1.500. Buses and minivans do a cheaper but a lot longer job.
Pak Bara is a transport hub with plenty of services to some of the most popular destinations in Thailand including Krabi and Koh Lanta. It is possible to charter entire vehicles for your group, whether you are travelling in small or larger groups.
From Pak Bara, you can hire a minivan with capacity for nine passengers to take your group to either Hat Yai town or airport for THB2,500. If your group has up to four passengers then you can hire a private car instead for THB2,000.
Satun Pakbara Speed Boat Club also offers a transfer between Hat Yai’s airport and town for THB1,200 and THB 800 for a minivan and private car respectively.
Solo travellers are also catered for with two minivan services each day at 11.00 and 15.00 heading from Pak Bara to Hat Yai. Travellers can purchase one seat in the minivan priced at THB250 for the two hour journey.
Krabi is one of the most popular destinations among tourists and Satun Pakbara Speed Boat Club offers transfers from Pak Bara. Minivans can be chartered for THB5,500 and private cars are priced at THB4,000. You can also purchase one seat on the daily service between Pak Bara and Krabi at 11.00. Tickets for this route are priced at THB550 and scheduled to arrive at 14.00. Those looking to head to Koh Lanta can pick Satun Pakbara Speed Boat Club with the option of minivans priced at THB6,000 and private cars costing THB4,200. Solo travellers can reserve a spot in the minivan service that departs Pak Bara at 11.00 each day, with tickets for the five hour trip priced at THB600.
Satun Pakbara Speed Boat Club also offers international departures to Malaysia and Singapore each day. From Hat Yai it is possible to visit popular destinations including Kuala Lumpur and Penang. There is one service from Hat Yai to Kuala Lumpur each day at 18.30 and tickets priced at THB650 per person. This service travels throughout the night and is scheduled to arrive in the Malaysian capital at around 03.30 the following morning.
There is also a daily departure from Hat Yai to Penang at 15.30 and tickets for the four hour trip priced at THB550.
Those looking to travel from Hat Yai to Singapore have two daily services to choose from, departing at 13.30 and 18.00 each day. Tickets for both these services are priced at THB1,200.
There is a wide range of departures to choose from whether you wish to travel within Thailand or to cross the border from Hat Yai into Malaysia. This will no doubt be highly convenient for travellers who can choose a service and departure time that will suit their schedules.
Those travelling in groups have the option of hiring private minivans or cars which can be more comfortable and more cost-effective, depending on the number of passengers.
As frequent travellers will know, trips on minivans are often not the most comfortable mode of transport and luggage can sometimes be an issue as space is limited.
Delays can be common on these routes, especially when you are required to change from one mode of transport to another, such as switching from minivan to boat on hour way to Koh Lanta.
