Tigerline Travel

Company Information

Tigerline Travel runs high speed ferries to all the Thai islands in the Adaman Sea including Phuket, Koh Phi Phi, Koh Lanta, Koh Ngai, Mook, Koh Libong, Ko Muk, Koh Lipe, Lipeh, Koh Kradan, and Langkawi in Malaysia. All ferries are high-speed ferries that are steel reinforced and have between 134 and 180 seats. They have air-conditioned cabins on the first floor and open-air cabins on the second floor.

Some routes also include combo tickets which have pick up bus and ferry travel from airports and hotels.

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.

January 2018

Jaafar, Jan 15, 2018 - Good
Menier, Jan 13, 2018 - Aucun problème, bien organisé, un peu compliqué pour trouver le bon guichet d'enregistrement à Rassada Pier
Estefania, Jan 10, 2018 - 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.
Mitsuhiro, Jan 4, 2018 - 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.
Linda, Jan 3, 2018 - Worst experience ever. To many people on the boat.
James, Jan 2, 2018 - The driver just dropped us off in the middle of Had Yai and we had to pay for taxi to our hotel as he didn't pay the taxi guy enough for everyone. Even though we were told we would be dropped at our hotel. Poor management of Minibus service..

December 2017

Ben, Dec 30, 2017 - After hearing all the horror stories and how bad this service is, I booked alternative transport back to Lanta and made my own way to Ao Nang via private taxi. This company has the worse reputation.
Miranda, Dec 29, 2017 - Llegamos una hora mas tarde de lo previsto.
Dincer, Dec 24, 2017 - Ferbota bilet aldık. Yerine sürat motoru getirdiler. İngilizce bilen personel yok. 2 adaya uğradıktan sonra bizi başka bir sürat motoruna almaya kaar verdiler. Tatile mü gidiyoruz yoksa başka ülkeye kaçak yollarla girmeye mi çalışıyoruz anlamadım. Bilgilendirme sıfır. Klima ve tuvaletten bahsedildi maalesef yoktu. Üstelik 1.5 saat geç adaya ulaştık. Umarım langkawi ye geçişimizde sorun olmaz.
Andrea, Dec 5, 2017 - Transport and pick-up was ok. No English-speaking staff on board We booked a ferry to Kuah Terminal in Langkawi, Kuah was named on the ticket so we booked a hotel in Kuah. But the ferry let us off at the other terminal so we had to take a taxi to the other side if the island. Don't book the speedboat if you get scared or seasick easily or have kids traveling with you. It's a really really rough and bumpy ride, the boat is literally jumping over the water.
Lisa, Dec 2, 2017 - 3h speedboat trip with Tigerline turned into 5,5h bus trip plus half an hour boat trip. On top of that no one was at the airport to pick us up so we had to call them. Go with another ferry company!
Monika, Dec 1, 2017 - Complete disaster. We booked for 9 AM, but the boat left at 10 AM, together with people who booked for 10 AM. The boat then did a very long stop at some village and instead of 1 PM, we got to Phi Phi only at 6 PM. I can explain some delay with bad weather, but only part of it. At least 3 hours delay was caused by the company. They had no explanations as to why we are delayed and why we are waiting for so long. Would never book Tigerline again.

November 2017

Viviana, Nov 29, 2017 - They moved our ferry reservation to a speedboat with people standing because we were more than the seats available. The sea was stormy so everybody was feeling sick but the driver did not care and kept going at high speed. Worst experience ever. Do not recommend.
Silvia, Nov 28, 2017 - First, they are not nice staff. I arrived and said that I've had purchase the ticket and have the reservation number but they said I should buy a new one just because I didn't have a paper printed. So, I had to call 12goAsia customer service to call for assistance and someone to speak with them in Thai language. Luckly, the staff at 12goAsia is amazing and were able to quickly help me. Then, the boat was 1.30h late, and they got a speedboat instead, but I'm not sure how qualified this people is to drive a boat like that because all the people who worked on the boat looked like 15-17 years old.
Ashley, Nov 26, 2017 - Koh lanta to krabi is a rip off. They take you to 3 or 4 Islands south and then stop really far away down south and take you with a van. Takes very long and not worth it.

April 2017

Katrina, Apr 29, 2017 - We had a terrible experience with this trip from Koh Phi Phi to Ao Nang. We went to the cabana tour office across from the pier, the lady there instantly told us to go to the end of the pier and refused to look at our printed reservation. We went to what seemed like a different company and they were confused by our printed reservation. We told them the tigerline lady sent us to them and they talked amongst themselves and then eventually gave us a sticker and told us to enter the boat. We arrived in Krabi confused as to where to go but we followed everyone else from our boat. The lady at the end of the pier only gave us a green sticker to Krabi, not a white one which was supposed to go Ao Nang. The bus drivers did not believe us that we had paid for the transfer from krabi to ao nang even after looking at our fully paid reservation which left us having to take a taxi and pay 400 Baht on top of our confirmed reservation. I am disappointed with the service my boyfriend and I received and the unorganized transfer process.
Yap, Apr 12, 2017 - Speedboat departed at 1115 instead of 1035. Boat is stuffy Minivan pick up was on time and driver drove safely

March 2017

Jamie, Mar 26, 2017 - Trip Went Smoothly And Agent WalKed Us Through Immigration, Security Etc. The Only Problem Was Locating The Ticket Office WhIch Was On The First Floor Of The Ferry Terminal At The company Called Tropical Charter.
Carolina, Mar 21, 2017 - To extensivo. In te a ir por y te price Washington really cheaper comparing with 12goasia s price
Monsalvo, Mar 11, 2017 - Un largo viaje, sin entretenimiento a bordo
Monsalvo, Mar 8, 2017 - El aire acondicionado no andaba, además había olor combustible dentro de la cabina

February 2017

Silvia, Feb 18, 2017 - The time is 3 hours, the bathroom very bad. The cost os very expensive,
Analia, Feb 17, 2017 - el punto de encuentro era confuso...no se entendia donde era...no habia nadie de la empresa con quien hablar..finalmente nunca encontre el punto y por lo cual no me recogieron...tuve que ir por mi cuenta a phi phi desde ao nang y encima el ticket me salio 300 B, cuando esta compañia me cobro 900 B por el mismo ticket. Un desastre mala experiencia no volveria a contratar. volvi a pagar el viaje en otro lado porque nunca los encontre.
Martinique, Feb 13, 2017 - Was ok. Boat was old but working. Travel took not longer than announced. It was stated that we had several stopps on the way
Fabian, Feb 4, 2017 - Horrible
Tiffany, Feb 2, 2017 - Fast and easy. Friendly people. Thanks!
Cynthia, Feb 2, 2017 - Como nos sucedió con los 3 traslados que hicimos con la empresa tigerline, en ningún lugar de los puertos hay información de la empresa, ni nadie sabe el punto de encuentro. Es bastante complicado hasta llegar a ese dato, con las complicaciones que eso genera teniendo el equipaje encima. Por otro lado en los tickets siempre se presta a confusión el lugar del meeting point y el lugar de salida del barco.

January 2017

Maria, Jan 31, 2017 - I bought speed boat tickets and they don't care all the boat companies send the passengers on the same boat, not enough life jackets, not enough seating, people had to sit on the floor, I don't think there's another service to all the islands or Krabi so no option get ready for an awful trip.
Cynthia, Jan 29, 2017 - Al comprar el ticket no indicaba que para tomar el traslado había que acercarse a un punto de encuentro, se interpretaba que el bote había que tomarlo en el puerto. Esta situación nos genero un trastorno a las 8am, luego de idas y vueltas con la recepción del hotel, un conductor de un tuk tuk que nos dejó en una agencia de turismo y repreguntando varias veces nos pudieron confirmar que debíamos aguardar ahí el traslado en minivan y luego de un viaje de 3hs llegariamos finalmente a tomar el.bote que nos llevaria a destino. No fue clara la información de como seria el traslado en ningún momento, a diferencia de los traslados que habíamos hecho previamente con seatran donde directamente debíamos acercarnos al.puerto indicado en el ticket electronico
Daren, Jan 10, 2017 - Nice relaxed trip, a bit longer than expected but you can't control the tides
Kseniia, Jan 4, 2017 - They were late. Boat to the Koh Libong was awful and scary. Don't know what I payed for. Oh, I know for high speed ferry, but I can name the wooden boat a ferry.

December 2016

Julie, Dec 29, 2016 - Horrible long trip, many stops, horrible toilets, extremely hot, luckily there was a fan in the middle area to move the air, but still awful.
Julie, Dec 29, 2016 - Chao Koh ferry was way better with A/C available, better bathroom conditions and better attention to people. Tigerline ferry was simply awful everyone was sitting on the floor in the stair next to the doors to have some Air. It was suffocating literally there was not even a fan to make some Air go trough. It must've been like 40+ degrees in there. I would say the bus transportation was way way better than the ferry.
Armando, Dec 28, 2016 - As everybody else, we arrived late and were charged more money. We later found that the local combination of bus + boat costs 320 BHT. We paid 1000+ each with this company.
Max, Dec 10, 2016 - The boat and ferry were reasonable comfortable and efficient. However my friends backpack was picked up by mistake by somebody else at another stop. The ferry service managed to get jet back without any hiccups and delivery to the hotel a day after we arrived which we were pleased about. In all a good adventure travelling day.
Cindy, Dec 1, 2016 - Arrived over an hour late. The trip from Phuket to Koh lanta took over 3hours instead of 2hours. We did quite a few stops on the way to pick up/drop off people. This would be fine if we were aware of it beforehand. But these were clearly not planned for our route since we were supposed to arrived in Koh Lanta over an hour earlier.

November 2016

Steven, Nov 27, 2016 - Fast journey but the speed boat was overcrowded and overbooked
Henry, Nov 27, 2016 - Smooth journey using a speed boat but cramped as it was small and there were no life jackets on board
Jean-jacques, Nov 22, 2016 - good reception, travel a little bit longer because meeting point with another ferry in the middle of the sea for transfer of other tourist ...
Alan, Nov 18, 2016 - Seats on top deck had been painted red and paint was coming off on everyone's clothes ruining them both my wife and I had to throw our favourite comfy shorts away. Showed the crew who smiled and nodded. Quite fast trip but 3 hours not 2 after calling at Phi Phi
