Phuket to Railay destination reviews

AB
ferry Speedboat, Tigerline Travel (ไทเกอร์ ไลน์ ทราเวล), Dec 9, 2019
Great in that the boat is fast and direct- but it was not run professionally at all in how the luggage and people were loaded, communicated with, treated or how the 4 Thai boys ran the boat like a race car with little regard for the passengers, luggage or safety. You were literally flying all over the boat inside. One woman looked back at me and mouthed “help!!”
