It was great! Boat came on time and when we got to Chong Lard Pier the taxi was waiting for us! A very easy and good service! The view on the speedboat was also amazing!

At first i thought it was kind of dodgy to book ferry online but this website proves me wrong. Everything was going so smooth. Even when i arrived they’ve already waited for me to pick me up. We arrived at the hotel exactly the time that we expected. Thank you so much!!

The staffs at bang rong pier were extremely helpful. We arrived too early and we stayed at a cafe in front of pier seemingly owned by someone related to pier staff. Very nice.

Everything was perfect! From the beginning until the end, the ride was so comfy and fast. It’s been the third time I am using the service!

Too many passengers in the boat and there were no life vests in sight except for the captains. I wouldnt feel safe on this boat again. I think the authorities should check the legality of their operations. Beware, the charge an extra 100 for “special” service but there was NONE at all, same service for everyone so DONT PAY FOR THAT EXTRA, ITS A SCAM!

Speedboat was full and had a 5 minute delay due to late arriving local passenger. It concerned me to have insufficient life vests and no briefing buy the crew
