The operator was quite a bit late, and the signs/communication about when or where a boat leaves from was a bit tricky to find out. However, I do understand that it is very difficult for them as they want to accommodate other customers as well. All in all it was a great service and if needed I would use it again.

Fab journey! Ferry left on time and the seats were comfortable! I had a little wait after the ferry arrived for the bus, but it was fine I was in no rush and it meant I could sit by the sea and read my book! The bus journey was good too! The driver was a bit fast but he Was still a good driver. The only thing I would say is the air con wasn’t very strong so the bus got a bit hot towards the end of the journey, but apart from that it was a good journey :)

WATCH OUT!!! The bus, who was supposed to dropp us off in Krabi Town, dropped us at a so called busstation outside Krabi Town. We all had to pay extra to be dropped off at our places. I had to go to the airport, what was a 20 minutes drive and they wanted to charged me 400 bath. Because I already checked the distance from Krabi Town to the airport, I knew that it was a drive of 10 minutes and couldn't cost me more than 200 bath. So I showed my ticket and told that I paid to be dropped in Krabi Town and that I wasn't going to pay extra to be dropped off. They couldn't do anything else than dropp me off in Krabi Town. Other people weren't that big mouthed as I was, so they paid extra to go to there hotel. So before you go do your homework and check Google maps for distances so they can't fool you!

Although it was a nice trip, it is not organized and you should guess the next step! Most important that even if your ticket is until your hotel you stop in the middle of nowhere and the driver just tell you to go out without explaining what is going on and that you have to show your ticket again to take a shuttle to the town.. Of course it is not driver's fault but no right information from the company!

Boat was to full, left to late and bus had to stop several times because something was wrong. That can happen, but driver didn't think about stopping at a place were people could go out and get something to eat/use the bathroom.

Price was cheap but the Crew was so extremely obnoxious and downright rude. Trip should last just short of 6 hours, lasted about 9. Arrived in Krabi at 15.00 rather than 12.30 as promised. Only plus is the price, rest is really not that good.

Good friendly service. Bit of a wait when you arrive at Krabi, as they organise the transfers to your hotel which is great but takes to long, as after the travelling all you want is get to your hotel.

Although not high speed, ferry was more comfortable than Lompraya one which doesn’t have regard for human life. Inside of ferry smells bad with almost no ventilation. The bus was late as well and you have to be pay additionally to get to hotel. This type of travel is budget friendly so you can’t complain much, but my suggestion for travelers is just to take airplane instead of joInt travel and save themselves a day of travel.

Dropped us on the edge of Krabi, toilets in the transfer to taxi place we’re charging 5 baht for the most horrendous disgusting quality. Taxi driver in Krabi drove like it was Grand Theft Auto. Great ferry experience but from there on it was frustrating

ferry High Speed Ferry, Songserm (ส่งเสริม), Sep 23, 2019
The waiting area in Koh Pha-ngan is a disaster, it’s filthy and very confusing, no communication at all provided. The boat is far from high speed, and when you arrive at the pier you’re just shouted at to get onto a bus, we were lucky that the bus was waiting unlike some other commenters but the way it’s managed is awful. We then arrived into a yard somewhere outside Krabi after selecting Krabi town for drop off we had to pay an additional 100 baht per person for transfer to the hotel, and I confirmed hotel drop off when I paid. The driver then tried to charge an additional 50 baht per person to take us to the hotel when this is what we had for. The only positive was that it was the first bus journey in Thailand that we felt safe on. It’s a budget friendly service but beware of additional charges during your journey.

The operator didn't provide option for drop location at krabi other than packup hostel. So, I chose packup hostel as drop location. Later on they charged additional 100 baht per person for dropping me at my hotel near ao nang. I should get 50 baht waiver per head as drop to krabi town was paid. But, he denied it.

- overall good , but not very what the transfers are! So which bus you need to take or which taxi. Also had to pay 100 bath to go to my own hotel, or I had to stay at Pak up, I didn’t know that was even an option! Also the people at the busstops where a bit rude!

So much waiting. You wait for the boat. You then wait for people to get off and on the boat. Then you finally reach your destination and it is a disaster to get off the boat because everyone’s bags are in a pile in the back. Then you wait for a bus and then it takes you to a station and then you wait for a van. It’s a decent backpacker boat, if you’re trying to save money. But I would never use them again. Chaos.

The ferry was half an hour late, but it stood up to the bad weather conditions :-) The bus was very spacious, but the A/C was running at minus 30 degrees all the time^^ For the price I would ride again in any case and also recommend it!
