Routes served by Satun Pakbara Speed Boat Club

Speedboats

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.

Minivans

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.

Pros

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.

Cons

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.

Keep in mind

Satun Pakbara Speed Boat Club also offers overnight packages that include accommodation and snorkeling trips to islands such as Koh Lipe.

Travellers Reviews

The choice of routes and departures make Satun Pakbara Speed Boat Club one of the most popular options in this region, offering services to a range of destinations from Krabi to Singapore. The transport hub of Hat Yai is connected to most of the destinations served by Satun Pakbara Speed Boat Club so it is easy to head onto cities such as Bangkok or destinations in Malaysia.

At 12Go our operators offer three types of service:

Cheap, Fast, Good - but you can usually pick only two of them!
Cheap & Fast won’t be Good. (e.g. buses from/to Khao San Road, local buses or 3rd class trains)
Cheap & Good won’t be Fast. (e.g. VIP trains in Thailand)
Fast & Good won’t be Cheap. (e.g. private limousine services, or VIP24 buses vs Express buses)

Make your choice! Please remember that while we are closely monitoring the services, we are still an agency marketplace. That means we focus on ticketing services and route availability & coverage rather than on the factual seat reclining angle you will get on the bus today.

Driver forgot to collect me. Pick up time was 11.30am, boat departed 12.30pm. After 2 phone calls driver eventually arrived 12.05pm. Otherwise, I found the process to be painless. Boat was clean and new-ish. Arrived in Koh Lanta on time.

There was only one hotel pick up location in karon which was the old phuket hotel. We waited for 20minutes at the entrance and started getting worried when our time was passed. Then we called the operator who told us that the driver was waiting for us at the hotel lobby. Problem was: the security of the hotel didnt let us through since we were not staying there. After 30min of expensive calls, we find the driver that insulted us for a good 10min, not hearing our reasons why we couldt meet him. But after that the journey was quick and we reached the pier without problem. The boat operator was great and the journey without problems.

Advice to those that use grab, don't enter in hat yai, hat yai bus station because it will get you to the wrong station !!! Luckily the transportation company was kind enough to get as on that station. Ferry was a 1.5h long rollercoaster, it was awesome.

Satun Pakbara didn't have the 12G0 reservation so it took a long time and calls to get our ticket (4/5 for 12G0). Also, it seems as though there are many different boats all going to the same place. You must pay 220 bhat to enter the pier and the national park so bring cash. There is a stop on a small island for 15 minutes to justify the 200 park entry fee.

Leave with delate because some people visa or passport were having issue, there should be a time like 15 minute tolerance for those people, they can always take the next boat. The ferry doesn’t have optino to seat without air conditioner, they should offer outside seat too.

Well organized but when 30 people were on the boat, not everybody could sit. The ones in the corner had to squat or sit with the feet towards the engine.

This was a great ride. Only 45 minutes from the pier to the Phi Phi islands. Compared to 2.5 hours on the slow boat, and my family who took the slow boat said the beer was warm. It was easy to make the reservation and they sent a van to pick us up at our hotel in Phuket. We will definitely take this service back when we return later this week.

Great service, pick up at bus station can be confusing, as lots of services are trying to get your business. I had the lady at a ticket counter call the hotline number and was directed to wait at the 7-11 at the northeast corner of the bus station (near 4 faced Buddha) there a clock in the middle of the intersection...

The boat was late for about 1 hour and no one from the staff has informed waiting passengers when it's actually going to be there. There's additional transfer on Koh Lanta that isn't mentioned anywhere on the website or ticket but it took less than 10 minutes.

The hotel were I was staying was not included in the hotels listed for pick up, so I chose the closest one in the list and presented myself at Kata Palm Resort at 10:45. The email stated the pick up time was 11am. Nonetheless, we got a phone call at 10:44 to be told the driver had not found us and therefore left. Few minutes later we were called back again and reassured the driver was coming back. After a 15-minute wait, we called the operator, who got in touch with the driver and called us back again to say the driver had come again and, again, not found us (we were at the entrance on the main road, near the fountain, with available parking in front of us). I suspect the driver never made the U-turn to come back. So we had to reach the pier by private taxi (600 THB). I'd discourage anybody to pay for hotel transfer and just reach the pier by taxi: 600 THB for two people is anyway cheaper than 400 THB per person that the provider charges. The boat trip was fine and on time.

The speed boat journey was perfect. However the hotel pick up was a mess. Two times were stated for pick up, 11am and 11.30am. We were waiting at 11am. By 12pm there was no sign of any bus to pick us up so we rang the number provided. The lady who answered was helpful and got a bus to us within 10/15 minutes. It was empty, leading us to the conclusion that we had been completely forgotten about, rather than there being a delay caused by collecting other people.

What 12go sells as a proper minivan Pak Bara pier pick up / your hotel drop off is actually a minivan lift to nearest public bus station where driver hands you a regular bus ticket & waves you good bye with a friendly smille. Regular bus leaves you at a bus station nearest your intended drop off location. From there, you are on your own. Regular Thailand bus stops every 5-10 minutes so will actually take you up to twice the scheduled time to arrive. I gave 2 stars out of 5: one for minivan driver who was a nice fellow and one because i was reimbursed for the taxi to hotel. Caveat emptor, be warned.

Quick journey between Koh Lanta and Phuket. Wasn't sure whether we were to be picked up at our hotel or not so made our own way via private taxi to the pier to save confusion! This was a quicker more comfortable journey at 1.5 hours than the previous journey to Koh Lanat stopping at Ao Nang taking 3.5 hours. Would definitely recommend, just make your own way to the pier :)

The trip was fast and good, but the organization on the pier wasn't the best. The boat was 15 minutes late from departure. We had to be there at 1pm and then stand in the heat and with all the people coming on and off other boats on that quite narrow street.

Pick up was half hour late, we arrived at 8.30 at the pier and in few minutes the staff helped us to check in and board. Travel to Koh Lanta was fine, from Koh Lanta to Koh Ngai they made us change speedboat and it was a bit overcrowded. We arrived only 10 minutes late. Definitely a good trip
