Routes served by Tigerline Travel Ferry Service

Tigerline Travel has a huge number of routes to the Thai islands in the Andaman Sea as well as to Langkawi in Malaysia.

Some of the most popular routes are as follows:

Koh Lipe–Langkawi

The journey from Koh Lipe to Langkawi takes between 2 and 3 hours. Tickets for this route are THB480 or USD14. Boats depart twice daily at 11 am and 4 pm.

Phuket–Koh Phi Phi

The perennial favourite, Phuket–Ko Phi Phi tickets cost THB480 or USD14 and boats leave at 6 am, 8 am, and 1.30 pm. The journey takes between 2 and 3 hours depending on the pier your depart and arrive.

Krabi–Koh Phi Phi

Similarly to Phuket–Koh Phi Phi route, Krabi to Koh Phi Phi enjoy great popularity. It takes even less to reach Koh Phi Phi from Krabi, so if you are not very fond of sea journeys, consider this opportunity. Tickets for this service also cost THB480 or USD14 and boats depart at 8.15 am, 10 am, and 12 pm. The journey should take around 2 hours depending on the route.

Pros

Tigerline Travel sails to all islands in the Andaman Sea, even some of the smaller ones that are difficult to travel to independently.

All boats have air-conditioning if you select the first floor cabins.

You can select other add-ons with this service including taxi pick up at your hotel or the airport which is helpful if you are newly arrived in Thailand.

Bookings can be made online.

Cons

Boats do not run all year round and are seasonal and schedules are subject to change. At times boats only run in the busier months such as August.

The Tigerline Travel website is basic and it can be difficult to book tickets directly through the site.

Boats do not run if the weather is stormy.

You may find that boats are subject to delays particularly if there are a high volume of passengers.

Keep in mind

Some of the smaller islands like Koh Ngai, Koh Kradan, Koh Mook, and Koh Lipe do not have a pier and so you will need to get a long tail taxi boat from the ferry arrival point to the island. These boats belong to local fishermen and are not included in the ticket price. You will need to pay the driver of the boat THB50 or USD1.50.

Travellers reviews

Though in general people are quite satisfied with the service, when booking pick up combos delays are common and you can be put on the next boat. This is Thailand! Be patient or buy ferry-only tickets to avoid confusion. Note that even in this case you can still arrive later than expected due to the tides.

There have been some reports of overcrowding of the boats with not enough seats and life jackets for everyone aboard. In fact, we were very surprised to hear that as during the last couple of years the regulations on sea transportation became much stricter than before and are widely enforced. So hopefully you won’t face this issue during your journey.

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.

No speedboat operation today from the pier probably because we were the only passengers. After having to wait for a TigerLine staff to show up at the check-in counter, we were re-booked on a ferry and we arrived a bit past 11, instead of the scheduled arrival time which was 9:45am. Didn't know TigerLine can just re-book people on a regular ferry when they paid for a high speed boat, without compensation. Disappointing and confusing service overall.

No speedboat operation at all today from Rassada Pier probably because we were the only passengers. We were re-booked on a ferry to Phi Pho and from there to Koh Lanta. Bloody shame TigerLine can just do this without compensation. Will never book with TigerLine again.

45 minutes late, no seats on ferry, no information on when to get off or where to wait for minivan. Driver had no idea where we were going and had to confirm he could take us then bus so crowded I had half a seat due to luggage. Good job I'm small! Most expensive and least smooth transfer out of many during this trip

The boat should leave Koh Lipe at 9AM and arrive Phuket at 2PM. Instead we left 10.15AM, with two boat changes and three 30 min stops in the middle. We arrived Phuket 5.30PM, Luckily our flight were at 8PM, so we have enough time to take the plain. The checkin desk in Koh Lipe was only a small table in the middle of the beach, without any indication (I would expect something like "TigerLine checkin" banner or something). It was so difficult to find. We should pay an extra 50Baht for transportation from the beach to the speed boat (!!!)

Boat was about half an hour late getting to Koh Mook ( but I suppose we working on island times ...) but still made good time and got to our hotel on time, journey was pleasant and we got to stop for snacks and bathroom breaks which broke up the transfer nicely. Second time using this company and I will definitely use Tigerline services again. Thanks for the painless and comfortable journey.

It did the job but the ferry was very small, hot and uncomfortable. The mini van that followed was too packed with bags and passengers. I had the honor of riding on the kid's seat in the front between driver and left-side passenger. Fun!

Overall it was OK but there were some points that could have been better. There was a half an hour delay before we went on the boat. They did say there will be a 20-minute delay when we arrived but did not explain why. Other than that the staff were helpful, and the transfer from the boat to the van was quick with very little delay. While the van was air conditioned, I think it wasn't working properly because it was pretty hot inside. But maybe it was because the van was packed and it was a very hot day. Also please note the van makes several stops so the trip takes longer than expected - we were headed to Ao Nam Mao pier and we stopped at Krabi airport and in at least another stop along the way.

The boat was fast, and wasn’t too busy so there was plenty of space to lie down and get a quick power snooze with relative comfort! It could be more made more obvious which journeys require a long tail boat and which ones do not. As I was under the assumption from the confirmation that Koh Lipe- Koh Lanta didn’t require one, turns out it did and it’s thb 50 each. There is also a thb 10 each fee when entering Koh Lanta (clean up fee?) so be aware. I’m not complaining about paying, just wish it had been made clearer as I’d packed my purse at the bottom of a bag and was awkward to retrieve!! The only real downside was the instructions on the confirmation about where the meeting point was. It wasn’t very clear at all, I knew it would have to be on Pattaya beach so went there expecting there to be some sort of sign but nothing. Thankfully the locals are all very friendly and could point us in the right direction but we may have otherwise been walking straight past! All in all a good service that would be made perfect with a few minor tweaks.

Overall a really confusing journey. We were being picked up in the airport, but had no clue what to look for as regards to who was going to pick us up. Maybe a van? A car? A taxi? Some guy with a sign luckily found us after we had waited 20 minutes and took us to his car and we took off on time as we were there 30 mins before like stated on the ticket. Then he dumped us off by the harbour and pointed to a waiting crowd. No signs as to which company they were waiting for. The boat ride itself was fine, but loading and off loading was just a pain to watch and to be a part of. Loading the boat, bags were going in first, and everyone was waiting while this was taking place which was about 20 ridiculous minutes, but once again no information was given as to what the plan was. Getting on the boat was actually okay, as everyone was eager to take off, they hurried in quickly. But getting off was probably the most insane part of the journey. The boat just stops and then no directions to the passengers are given, so you don't know if it's even your stop but they expect you to get out as if you've been there before. As a bunch of us didn't stand up, as they hadn't off loaded our baggage, this guy came down to the boat yelling at us "let's go! Let's go!" Even though no one had told us who was getting off and where we were. He was rude, and it was not okay treatment, specially considering you are paying 1500 baht for this journey. We got there in the end, but it was not the most pleasant of rides.

Just 3 Stars, because: there was no highlighted point for the boarding with tigerline the treatment of the lugagge was quiet bad we had to pay 50 Baht per person for the longtail boat, and that has to be a joke, because the whole trip alreday coasts about 3500 Baht. I await more and also a sign on the voucher for transparency of the coasts.

It is irresponsible to allow children under 5 years to join te speed boat to Koh Lanta. The waves felt like rocks, so people with back and neck issues suffer. On the positive side there were plenty of safety vests.

As i had read many recommendations i bought the tickets in ferry service instead of speedboat. However we were put on a speedboat at Phuket pier without any asking. The trip in speedboat was to Koh Lanta and it was TERRIBLE, a very bad experience. The sea was windy and people on the boat got sick Our children were very afraid. I would never recommend this again. At Koh Lanta they changed us to a ferry. That was much better but still a very old boat and quite small sized seats compared to other companies. I think we should have been warned that there was a speedboat half of the long way to Koh Lipe so we could make our own decission. Our ticket said clearly "high speed ferry".

The check in at the dock was a bit confusing, and we were asked to come back later to check in, but there was no where to wait. The staff told us to wait in a nearby restaurant, and they would retrieve us when they saw the boat approaching. They forgot about us, until the last minute, And our boat had already pulled away from the dock. Luckily they came back for us! The trip from Phi Phi to Phuket was nice, and the operator, “Don” was very helpful and accommodating.

The trip was really good, it looks like was a private jet boat, super fast and comfortable, there were only 15 people in the speed boat that I took. The only thing was that it was a little bit difficult find the place where I needed to make check in, but everything was good.

I went from Ko Lipe to Phuket. <<Cons>> 1)Wrong picture of check in point and wrong coordinates were given, and I was asking around and looking for it for over 30minutes, but nobody knew where it was located. They don't have a check-in office at Pattaya beach. Actual check in point was just in front of walking street. 2)Check in didn't start 2hours before departure time. I passed thru checking point at 1 and half hour before departure, but nobody was there. Check in probably started about 40mintues before departure. 3)Ferry was only from Ko Lipe to Ko Lanta. From Lanta, I was transferred to a speed boat. 4)Speed boat stopped at 3-4 islands. I thought it was a direct route. 5)Arrival time delayed for over 40-50minutes. <<Pros>> 1)There was a friendly staff. 2)I was able to reach the destination without losing my luggage.
