The taxi driver was early and we had a very comfortable and quick journey to Phuket airport all the way from Krabi. This worked out much cheaper than getting grabs and ferries as we had been planning so I would highly recommend this taxi service for longer journeys.

Staff was helpful and attentive. We are traveling with two kids under 7, so it can be a juggle, however the crew were patient. Crew performed 2 "open water" transfers of guests from other boats, which went pretty seamlessly! Boat was sound, AirCon was pumping... trip was good.

Todo perfecto. El conductor ya estaba en el hotel antes del horario, x lo que partimos enseguida y llegamos más temprano de lo previsto, y así pudimos hacer un poco de playa. Muy buen servicio, todo sin ningún problema.

When we left Ao Nang’s pier we went all the way to Railay beach and waited for many boats to bring more passengers. It took 1 hour before we really departed towards Phuket. All in all, you arrive at Rassada pier at 5h30pm. The offboarding is just super messy. Everyone tries to leave at the same time as if the boat was sinking. Then there’s another fight for the luggage retrieval. The shuttle service to the hotels is very good! Nothing to say bad about it.
