Phuket to Koh Ngai Destination Reviews

the departure was delayed but that's okay we were sailing with one broken engine so we were moving very slowly in addition my daughter had a headache because it smelled like fuel and we had to change the boat at sea to get to our destination at all so it wasn't a good trip!
Ferry Speedboat + Speedboat, SiriLanta Speedboats, Mar 20, 2023
Very nice and lovely driver. Very punctual. Private longtailboat from small pier near Trang. Scenic longtail ride to Koh Ngai. Just perfekt. We 2 booked a private minibus, since we travelled with our folding kayak. Last year we travelled to Koh Bulon with the speedboat. This option by minibus and longtail boat is for 2 people only a bit more expensive, but very much better. We also travelled from Krabi to Phuket with private minibus with another company. King Travel is much better!
