Koh Lipe to Phuket Destination Reviews

The departure time of the ship was late. So it was late to arrive at the destination. I was worried about COVID-19, but many people did not wear masks. Why didn't the employees say anything about this? They even made three people sit next to people who didn't wear masks. It doesn't matter if three people sit together, but I hope you pay attention because it's a COVID-19 situation. Can you explain in more detail in the process of changing ships in Kohlanta? You have to change your tickets through check-in, and I hope people can stand in order. I was angry because of the people coming in in the middle even though I was in line in advance. The staff also didn't have a guide. But I used it well. Thank you.

The trip was much longer then expected, as it was on the trip to go to Koh Lipe. The Crüe don't call the name of the names of the islands, some people missed the stops and we had to come back, loosing 40 more minutes

This is a very long route (5.5 hours) and we were lucky to have very calm seas this time. The captain slowed down at some bigger waves so that the boat did not bounce so much, which was good. Wish there was a direct option from Koh Lipe - Phuket, because stopping at all the other islands (Koh Lanta, Koh Muk, Koh Ngai, a few others) took a long time (even though they were very beautiful). No water or snacks were offered, even for sale. The toilet on board was not great but since we had to get off and switch boats at Lanta, I ran to the toilet there. The smaller boat from Lanta to Phuket was extremely uncomfortable and very squished.

Muchas paradas. El mar estaba muy agitado y saltábamos mucho en la lacha.

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.

More than 2 hours delay. Only good thing is the views from the ride

The boat was overfilled. There were 30-40 people crammed on to a tiny speedboat and I had to stand on a plastic petrol can as there wasn't enough room for everyone. There weren't enough life vests for everyone either. Other than that we got there on time. The people who were stood up didn't have much to hold onto either. Not a good journey.
