ferry Catamaran, Lomprayah, Dec 9, 2019
Heavy waves made for incredibly rough trip. The vessel has NO VISIBLE LIFEBOAT/RAFT on board and they handed out PFD's to each passenger (NOT LIFE JACKETS). This means in the event of an unconscious passenger in the water, they would surely drown. Not sure about vessel safety requirements in Thailand, but I would be amazed if this is permissible. Everyone (literally everyone) onboard was vomiting into little plastic bags. There were a few passengers that were in crying because of the endless vomiting. Me and my partner were ok because we knew to sit at the back/centre of the boat (least effected by ship motions), but unfortunately this meant the crashing waves were pouring on us from the back of the canopy (we were soaking wet and cold). So you can choose sea-sickness or getting soaking wet... I think it's insane that the crew doesn't explain to passengers that sitting at the front/sides of the boat is worse for motion sickness, and that looking out the windows (to the horizon) will help to reduce the onset of nausea. For the ride off the island (to Koh Samui), we opted for Seatran ferries, as they use monohulls. MUCH BETTER EXPERIENCE. Made good time because the hull could handle the large swell, and the ship motions are much less violent on a traditional hull. We stayed on the exterior deck to make sure we wouldn't feel nauseous.

Hello, Van and Catamaran were excellent, comfortable and with air cond. The only think I would like to suggest you is to be more clear with the timetable in the website as we follow the time (pick up 8:50 am) and we took the flight from Bangkok at 6:30 am. Then we waited 3-4 hours before the catamaran departure at 13:00. Next time we may take a later flight and arriving at the pier just in time for the departure. Anyway, all the rest was wonderful and staff very polite and helpful. Thanks

Very efficient service. The company basically picks you up at Chumphon airport and delivers you to Mae Haad pier on Koh Tao...

Bought the ticket directly at the 12go.asia office in Bangkok. Ferry was on time and comfortable. However, the AC was way too cold for the rainy wheater. Bring a sweater and some dramamine.

We contracted a pack from Chumphon yo Koh Tao island which included to pick out us at the Chumpon AirPort at 10:00. But finally the bus arrived at 11:40. This long delay was due to the fact that the company decided to wait for the next flight which arrived at 11:30. On that manner they optimise their bus service which becomes full thanks to the flight coming from Bangkok at 08:25 and the one of 11:40. However, the people who wake up early to take the flight Bangkok Shumpon at 07:25 are penalised. 12go asia do not sell the pack of 10:00 if the Lomprayah boat company is not capable to assure the timeline.

The bus trip to the catamaran was arranged perfectly. However, the catamaran trip to the island itself was really crowded. It meant that, even though it rained, a lot of people had to sit outside on benches or on little stools.

I made a mistake by booking from the wrong place (chumphon in stead of surat tani), when I wanted to rebook it wasn’t possible because I was a few hours too late (instead of 96 hours before departure, as stated in the rules, 93 hours before . We lost our money as we had to buy new tickets from surat tani, this time via an operator. Not very lenient!

ferry Catamaran, KP Tripadvisor, Aug 8, 2019
Only problem we had was there was no one to handle the luggage at the end of the trip. So when we docked 100 people rushed to a large pile of luggage. By the time we got to the pile we only had 1/2 our luggage. The other 1/2 was on the dock. I’m guessing someone picked up our bag and left it there. Other then was the ride was good, offered snacks, and the bathrooms were surprisingly clean.

When you land in chumphon just exit from the baggage claim and you will find a transfer to the pier. At the pier you have time to have lunch or breakfast.

I had booked for the wrong day (the following day) but the "Fame Tour " guy managed to change the date for us without extra charge. That was great! The journey was in good time and we stopped at a nice place for a break. All in all, it was quite good for the price, however, I must either warn passengers or congratulate the driver for his speed and his driving/piloting skills. I guess we are just not used to this driving style which looks like a constant game of chicken...scary at times. But we got there and on time, so thank you!

Bus journey was fine, not too long. Bus was pretty worn out but we got there in one piece. Catamaran journey was ok too. Earplugs are a good idea as it is loud, as you'd expect. Noise cancelling headphones plus music helped me sleep.
