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.

Taxi diver was on time and very nice, so was everyone else. But the boat had not enough life vests for all passengers and there were no safety instructions.

Poor time management start right from the pick up point in Langkawi, late arrival at the pier and we have got to wait for the next speedboat. Very lack of communication between the operators and the travellers. Quite disappointed, although we arrived at koh lipe late but safely. Thanks anyway!

★★☆☆☆
The mini van was not full so unfortunately we had bought an extra seat for our bags unneccesarily. It is worth telling people that in low season buying an extra seat is not needed. Also when we reached Trang we had to switch onto a bigger bus which we were not informed of before. We had to wait for half an hour and when the bus arrived it was full save for the seats at the back which we had to sit in and they were uncomfortable. The bus was supposed to arrive at 5pm and it actually arrived at 7:40pm. The entire journey was uncomfortable as the suspension on the bus had totally gone. Organisers were lovely and polite just a shame about the other things.

The journey from Pak bara to Ao Nang was going well until we reached Krabi bus station where the rest of the passengers transferred onto another bus. As we were the last passengers left the driver paid a tuk tuk van to take us the rest of the way as he clearly didn’t want to. This would have been okay if he went straight there but no he wanted to fill his van so drove around the streets until it was. This took an extra hour on top of our journey, whilst it was raining heavily outside and our bags were getting soaked too.

We were a bit confused about whether this trip included a pick up, but it did which was nice. The boat trip was incredibly fast. Due to the time of the year (monsoon season) the ride was crazy, it felt like being on a rollercoaster and everyone felt seasick (even though I had 3 pills). It was a very fun ride but not suitable for small children, elderly or those who get seasick. We were drenched in water by the end and we're holding on for deal life during.

Boat was a bit late and very full but it was quite well organized. People got tags where they’re going and our backpacks were tagged too. Boat picked us up from the shore and dropped us off at Koh Muk pier, no need for longtails.

Was ready before departure time with everybody on board so set off 10 minutes earlier which was brilliant, quick and smooth trip as even offered cold water by crew which was a nice gesture. Would recommend and would travel with them again.

The actual ride was excellent. Fast, easy, and efficient. Communication and clarity beforehand was not. The stated time was 9am, and there was no easy way to determine—from either the confirmation page or the subsequent email—when to be ready for pickup by truck from my hotel. I sent an intentionally clear and direct email to inquire, and got a very prompt response advising me to be ready at my hotel “before departure time 30 minutes.” Clear enough, I thought. “I’ll be ready to go at 8:30am,” I replied to the email—just to be extra certain I had it right. Of course the morning of the trip the driver arrives at my hotel at 7:30am and I have to scramble to pack up and check out so as not to keep everyone else waiting. This was a simple and obvious detail in need of easy clarification. Kicked the day off with a stress I would’ve greatly preferred not to have experienced. With this in mind, I would definitely recommend going this route from Koh Lanta to Phuket. No brainer compared to next best alternative.

The bus left 20 min early so I almost missed it. Then switched to another bus, seats were large and comfy but there were bugs crawling around, eck! Then another bus switch so it was a lot of getting on and off and moving luggage which I think is annoying. Bus arrived to my destination 10 min early but it wasn’t announced clearly so if you’re not familiar with where you are going it can be tricky..

Positives: fast check in, easy to find, spacious boat. All in all; a good journey Negative: the boat departed 25 minutes later than scheduled, since you have to be there 30 minutes before departure this meant that we had to wait an hour. After that the whole time schedule was delayed and we arrived an hour later than expected

A comfortable trip. However a most unsuitable film was shown with women being tortured and killed. There were children onboard !!! We were disembarked at a different beach to where we expected due to a strong swell. No information was given about this. Fortunately our luggage was brought to us.

Timely departure. Boat looks very new and clean. Strong winds and some rain made the ride take much longer than the stated 1 hr 45 mins. Waves were huge on that say and so the ride was especially rough. Not for the faint-hearted and people vulnerable to motion sickness.
