Small van, the boat was not the expected. You have a lot of thing to improve.
ferry Speedboat, Satun Pakbara Speed Boat Club, Mar 10, 2020
I can't say if any of the other operators are better but I'll be avoiding this one if need to book in the future.
ferry Speedboat, Jolly Travel, Mar 10, 2020
The booking experience with Jolly Travel was okay and the driver was at the airport on time wiating for us. He waited quite a long time before he left the airport which meant we left a bit late. He then drove like a madman to Pakbara Pier. I had my 2 children with me in the van and I honestly didn't think we would make it alive. He drove so fast, nearly crashing into several vehicles. I was not very happy at all & will not use this service again.
The speedboat stopped at 2 islands which meant we arrived at Koh Lipe very late. We even had to wait a very long time on one small island as the customers just took off and walked around the island The staff need to be precise about how long people have on the islands if they are going to stop. The journey was quite brutal as we were very packed in and my daughter really suffered as a result. Overall it was not a very nice experience.

Van ride perfect. Boat transfer terrible: overcrowded and 2 stops on the way to Lipe which delayed the arrival with 1 hour 10 minutes!

Tres bien .on nous a bien dirigé et malgré le retard de l avion on nous a attendu. Personnel très sympathique.

We made it to our destination on time, but as others have said, it could have been smoother. Van picked us up much earlier than scheduled, then picked up another couple. We then met another van and had to squeeze into that one. In the end, we went back past our hotel.
The pier was confusing. Like others, driver said one thing, inside they said another, but were very abrupt. Make note - go up to the desk to get your number. You are going to board by number, the earlier, the better.
Our boat was also packed. And for some reason we made 2 pitstops of 15 mins each. Not sure why. We’ll see how the return goes...

Everything was on time AND easy going. One suggestion At the Hat Yai bus station the sign of the operater for the van can ne seen only when the OTOP shop opens.

Prima op tijd
ferry Speedboat, Satun Pakbara Speed Boat Club, Feb 11, 2020
Van was excellent, quite new and comfy. The arrival at the port a bit messy but we knew the way from a previous time. I guess if it was the first time will be confusing to get from the boat club till the port. At the waiting in the port we got the check in done, not more info of what was going on or why it was a bit delayed. After we got to the boat the trip was perfect. Plenty of space on the boat, and a fast ride. No stops on the way and we made it to lipe on time.

Pick up and the drive were punctual, but the boat ride lasted much longer as advertised. What should have been a 4 hour transfer, turned into 5,5 hrs.
ferry Speedboat, Satun Pakbara Speed Boat Club, Jan 24, 2020
L'accoglienza in aeroporto è stata ottima,Il transfert dall'aereoporto al porto non è stato dei migliori, l'autista del van guidava dando dei brevi colpi di acceleratore e poi lasciava di colpo per tutto il viaggio, andare a scatti non è il massimo per chi patisce il mal di auto... non ne capivo il motivo ma se continua così il van, che era nuovo , avrà presto dei problemi.....dal porto a Koh Lipe il viaggio è andato bene con il motoscafo veloce in un paio di ore siamo arrivati
ferry Speedboat, Jolly Travel, Jan 23, 2020
Had a fine 2 hour transfer to the pier in a minvan with 5 others with one comfort break stop along the way. On arriving at Pak Bara it then gets a little more disorganised. First you queue at the Jolly Travel shop where you show your booking and get a booking slip. You then walk across the road to the pier pay 20 baht entry per person, and then 200 baht fee pp for the national park. Inside you then exchange your booking slip with the relevant boat company who then give you a numbered ticket. You wait around and then are lined up in number order according to your ticket for getting on the boat. Don't hang about as if you get on first you get the pick of the seats. Then it started to get annoying, we left 20 minutes late and after going for about 40 mins stopped for an unscheduled 20 min break at a random jetty. There was no communication about why we stopped or how long we would be there. After setting off again we then stopped at a random beach for 20 mins, again no explanation at all. What is the point? The entire boat signed up to get to Koh Lipe, not to go sightseeing on the way. We arrived at Koh Lipe 40 minutes late. I would happily have paid more to go direct and cut out the faffing about.
ferry High Speed Ferry, Jolly Travel, Jan 23, 2020
Excellent and reliable service! If you are going from Hat Yai Railway Station to Koh Lipe they will pick you up between 8:00 and 8:30. The meeting point is outside train station entry gate. If you are waiting in one of the nearby cafes they will find you anyway :)
van VIP, Sukhothai Tour Hat Yai, Jan 22, 2020
Very convenient. Shuttle picked us up at 9.00, smooth drive (we even stoped for 10min for the toilet). Would recommend!
van VIP, Sukhothai Tour Hat Yai, Jan 17, 2020
Smooth pick-up. No problems. Good service.
However, at Pakbara there was no direction given. There are two desks at the front of the pier. Tourists are waved off in the general direction of the pier and rely on other tourists and hope they are in the right line. The minivan driver said to go to one gate but the information at the reception desk was to go to another gate. Confusing. Tourists were stood out in the sun and lined up according to number before boarding. No big deal but it might be worth noting that many tourists are pale and we burn in the sun.
Finally, the boat was overcrowded & there was little direction given in seating people. If you're going to number the people, maybe they could number the seats.
van VIP, Sukhothai Tour Hat Yai, Jan 14, 2020
The van arrived 25 minutes before the scehuled time, the transfer was smooth and we arrived at the pier in time to check-in for the boat with no rush. Boat transfer was direct to Koh Lipe, landed directly on Pattaya beach and there was local staff already waiting to take all the new arrivals to the pre-booked hotels/resorts by motorbike taxi/van. Excellent service!

They were waiting at the airport. Efficient pickup, good communication.
Everything fine without problem!
ferry Speedboat, Satun Pakbara Speed Boat Club, Jan 5, 2020
Great welcome at the airport.
Then got a bit disorganised as others had a delayed flight.
We were a bit lost at this pint and worried.
At the port, it was a little bit disorganised - mostly language problems, maybe more signs?? In foreign languages, to direct people.
Boarding also a bit disorganised.
But hey, you got everyone together and got everyone to Koh Lipe. So - success! .
van VIP, Sukhothai Tour Hat Yai, Jan 3, 2020
The driver arrived at the hotel 30 minutes earlier and we were the last to been picked up. Anyways we arrived just in time at the pier and since was a very busy day we (all the group) did not managed to fit in the scheduled boat. After 1 hour waiting, they eventually sent us to another company. The boat was actually overcrowded. Anyways any problem occurred.
We would have preferred to avoid the stops, since the trip was already quite long!

We stopped twice on the way at islands with all the other boats 20 minutes each time. Too many people and not enough time to enjoy. Could have cut 40-60 mins of the journey.

Stopping at 2 places when we just wanted the transport was not needed. Should be a transport and not extra cost just to visit a random Island. Next time more info about the stops...

I would use Jolly Travel again and I do recommend. Good service.
The van was supposed to leave at 8:30 but instead arrived closer to 9:00. We made it to the Pak Bara pier on time. The driver was a good drive. The boat departed on time and we made it to Koh Lipe on time. It was a good trip. No complaints. Will use again next time.
