Routes served by Tigerline Travel Ferry Service

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.

All the staff were very helpful. It was nice to have a van take us all the way from the pier to the train station.

The trip started late because of the rain. It suppose to be a direct trip, but it wasn't (stopped in Koh Lanta to take more people and wait for almost 1 hour). It suppose to spend 3 hours, but it took 5 hours to reach Koh Lipe. All luggage stayed in the rain and everything got wet!!

I payed 1.550 THB for a DIRECT speedboat from Koh Lanta to Koh Lipe. It was supposed to take 2 hours. Did I made it safely to Koh Lipe? Yes. Was it an express direct trip? NO. The boat was not full, so they told me that they had to make three stops. Well... they made FIVE stops! In one of them we waited for half an hour. We left at 10:40 am and arrived at 15:30... you do the numbers. DO NOT book this more expensive “direct” trip if you are traveling in low season. There is such thing as a direct speedboat if the boat is not full. In addition, it rained the entire trip and the boat didn’t have a waterproof canvas in the ceiling... so it was also raining inside the boat. All of stuff got wet.

We book tickets for a ferry from Krabi to Koh Lipe. We werent enough custumers and they sent us by speedboat. I understand the situation but we payed more to travel comfortable. I think the webpage should mention this and also refund the difference in these situations.

I was told to be there at least 30 minutes early. The boat arrived 40 minutes later. No pier to board. Some one with a back pack getting off fell over into the water. I was dropped off at the wrong pier. No announcement made regarding the name of the pier we were being dropped off at. The sign of the pier was missing letters. As soon as I discovered it was the wrong pier I could see the boat departing and called to have them return. Operator was not helpful. Had to find another boat to get me to the right pier.

Smooth trip, it seemed a little unorganized when the luggage we going on the boats but it all worked out. Our stopover at Phi Phi was quick, and the whole trip was nice. Just could have had a little more room on the boat.

Fairly long trip by boat but worth avoiding the hassle of island hopping by land. Only complaint was getting left on the boat for an hour during an in-route puck-up. VERY HOT wish they had let us off the boat while we waited.

Staff were great but this trip is not for the frail or faint hearted. It is long (approx 6 hours in a speedboat), very noisy & can be bone-jarringly bumpy if the seas are choppy like it was on the day I travelled. Definitely take sea-sickness tablets BEFORE starting your journey, even if you don’t usually get seasick, definitely bring earplugs & definitely go to the toilet beforehand & when you stop at Koh Lanta. Also consider bringing headache tablets like Panadol as the constant noise & bumps could bring on a splitting headache.
