Koh Tao to Chumphon Destination Reviews

Crew make everyone stack there bags in one place at the front of the boat and then do nothing to assist customers collect their bags to disembark leaving chaos. This made us late for our train connection. The boat was also late departing.

The boat was good, but te connection from Chumpon to te trainstation was not good. Not happy about it.
Ferry Speedboat, Lomprayah (ลมพระยา), Aug 20, 2022
I woke up shivering from the insanely cold air-conditioning. No one told me where to get a blanket or offered me one. Other bunks had multiple up as curtains and for sleeping. Wasn't able to find an available one so went out of the dorm and layed down on the hard ground under the stairs. We arrived about 4:30 which was fine as it was one of the much closer piers up the river/inlet.

The booking over 12Go was very easy and reliable. The Catanaran showed up as planned and got me to where I wanted to go. Anytime again!
Ferry Speedboat, Lomprayah (ลมพระยา), May 15, 2022
The boat to Koh Tao was extremely crowded and hot, so it felt a bit like a COVID trap. No AC, no fans, and no way to get outside to the deck or to an upper deck outside. The return boat was much better with spacing and AC.

Great service, friendly staff helpful
