Only issues were the fact with the stop at phi phi they overloaded the boat which meant there was not enough seats for the amount of people. Also they turned up 45 minutes late

Was nervous after some bad reviews online but it was fine. The transfer from our hotel was on-time and very smooth. Check in at the pier was a bit busy but okay. There were enough seats for everyone and life jackets (but no safety information etc). It was quite bumpy and we did get sprayed a few times but more just uncomfortable towards the end rather than scary! I would not recommend for infants/babies or anyone very scared of the water. My husband enjoyed the trip and said it felt like a rollercoaster, so take that as you will. My suitcase got pretty banged up in the journey so that was a shame, but otherwise it was okay.

Pick up from hotel very on time, the driver pointed us to the ticket desk at the pier to check in, no information from that staff whatsoever but we got to the boat fine, the ride went well, we had to change boat in the middle of a bay near Riley and get on a similar one to Koh Lanta but despite this we arrived precisely on time on the island. Bags were handled by the staff in between boats and disembarked by them using a slide. Very good value for money as other trips cost the same without the taxi transfer from the hotel

We booked this trip with a pickup from Phuket Airport. We got to the airport much earlier than the pickup time and then we realised.. it’s a HUGE airport, and there were no details whatsoever about where the pickup would be. After an hour being pointed to different locations by different airport staff members and your operators (who were very kind and really tried to help!), and three calls (one of which wasn’t picked up), we finally got to the right place - gate one at the domestic flights section of the airport. We were almost 30 minutes late at this point, but luckily the driver was still waiting for us. I couldn’t thank him enough for this! That’s basically the only reason I don’t give this a lower score. Besides this incredibly stressful event, everything else went smoothly.

Easy booking on 12goAsia and quick response via the “call online” if you need a representative to help update your trip. We had realized after paying that the wrong date was selected for our ferry and we were able to call via computer to have it changed within a few minutes.

The boat didn’t have enough seats for everyone so two girls had to sit on the floor. The guy in charge was yelling at them as well, it wasn’t pleasant.

ferry Speedboat, Tigerline Travel (ไทเกอร์ ไลน์ ทราเวล), Feb 2, 2020
The ferry operator left on time, and somehow got us to our destination on time considering the heavy, although not dangerous wave conditions. Although the sea was rough, the captain was an expert navigating through the waves. Please be advised, the trip is bumpy when the sea is calm considering that you are riding in a speedboat. When the sea is rough, please bring motion sickness pills and try to have a strong stomach. If not, bring a barf bag or consider taking the longer ferry ride.

False advertisement, there was no such steward or any snacks during the trip. The trip itself was quite funny in the beginning. You'll get used to the jumping and rattling quickly and then it's just a fast transfer

They lie. I clearly booked a trip Phuket to Koh Lanta nonstop. 1.5 hours duration. Stopped in Koh Phi Phi, off-loaded luggage and picked up an additional 12 passengers, which were more passengers than seats, and some sat on the floor and back ledge. It overloaded the boat and was not safe. They aldi strangely asked us to put on life jackets during our stop in Koh Phi Phi for a photo - seriously sketchy. I was not happy with this service. Try Bundhaya maybe instead. Don't pay for this company to get more money.

the boat was supposed to arrive at 12:15... we were at 13:10 at Koh Lanta. The boat left as scheduled at 1100 from phuket. The driver was supposed to pick us up at 900 from a hotel in phuket town. He arrived at 9:40. When i saw his instructions it said: pick up time 1000.

Fast, but crowded and bumpy. Large bags are stored in the bow of the boat, exposed to elements. It rained on the trip over, so we felt moisture in the seating area. It was all bearable, so I'm writing this so others know what to expect. Pay attention at pier in Phuket. Departures are not announced on the PA as far as we could tell. So watch what is going on at your departure gate.

Yes it’s fast, but if it’s windy out just know you will get completely soaked. Make sure your smaller bags (the ones they don’t load up in the front) are water proof. We went across on a rough water day, everyone got soaking wet, smaller bags brought into the seating area were soaked, some people threw up, not good for people with back issues or who are prone to whiplash. It was very bumpy and jarring the majority of the way. Be warned.

Snelle en voorspoedige reis. Blij dat we al een ticket hadden zodat niemand ons een ticket probeerde te verkopen met hun mooie praatjes. Boot/schip brengt je waar je wezen moet. Veel meer hoef je er niet van te verwachten. Wij vaarden in een keer door naar de eindbestemming. Rassada Pier is van alle gemakken voorzien. Bij Saladan Pier stonden alle taxi’s en ‘scammers’ al te wachten. Wij zouden sowieso gaan lopen naar het hotel, maar minimaal 3/4 van hun eerste aanbod/prijs afhalen en dan is het het ritje waard.

Pick up was good, taxi arrived early at our hotel (private car) and we got to the pier way ahead of time. The signage at the pier was confusing- told to wait at the 'Anda Varee' stand that was closed. After 20-30 min the employees finally arrived and place a "Satun Pakbara" sign on top. The boat ride was to Koh Phi Phi was great but at that stop, way too many passengers got on and it was packed. I was squeezed into a corner and luggage was packed at my feet, had no room to move.

We had a great trip, although the speedboat left the dock later than scheduled due to foreign tourist who went to the wrong place first. So we all sat inside boat sweating from heat waiting for one late passenger. Remember, this is Thailand! We arrived safely.

Was chaos but was prepared. Stayed at top reading and sunning and enjoying the trip. Lots of tourists got sick they went down below. Couldn’t handle the top. Nice 2 hour ride. Once we got close I was prepared for the boat switch which I notice on reviews a lot of other blokes never are. Pshh. I use blokes as a joke. I’m Canadian I don’t use that word. Anyways. Went down and jostled for a spot that was able to grab our bags. Bunch of blokes try pushing you hold your ground. Anyways. We dock. My wife and I grab our stuff and make it easily to the next boat. We stay at the top which has nice cushioned seating. Able to put our legs up. Relax. Nap. Man it was the good life. This ferry trip was the Crack. Is that why Irish say. Anyways I’m not Irish. Cheers mates

I wish I could give it 5 stars, however, we had booked transfer from a nearby hotel (as ours was not an option) and given the pickup time of 11:00 based on our district. The earliest pickup time for the districts further away was 10:30 so we just decided to be safe and arrive at 10:10 to the hotel. It wasn’t until 11:10 that I called the hotline number that we were informed that they will send a driver. I am assuming the first driver must have arrived much earlier than pickup time and left or was running very late. Nonetheless we were promptly sent a new driver who was fantastic. We entered into a scene of fast and furious (safely of course) so that he could insure we made it to our boat in time! A bit disappointing on the organization of the original pick up process, BUT the awesome costumer service from both the dispatch and definitely the incredible driver made up for the overall experience!

Some bloke waived at us when we were about to have breakfast. When we were done he turned out to be our driver! So good start of the trip. The ferry was interesting, lots of people vomiting etc. But what made our trip 3 Star instead of 4 is that we didn’t know in advance that we had to transfer to another boat at Phi Phi. So when this woman started to shout “hurry hurry you need to get to the other boat quick quick” we still had to walk against the stream of people to the bottom floor of the boat to collect our luggage. You should try this with hundreds of people who want to get out en masse. After breathing the fumes off about an equal amount of 5 gallons of oil (they use one 10-gallon drum per return trip) we were super happy to arrive at our wonderful hotel. But.. we made it :-) Three Stars
