Phuket to Koh Phi Phi Destination Reviews

I booked the night before, got instant confirmation, and the pickup was super easy and on time. The drive from Patong was comfortable in the AC and the speedboat was the best boat I have ever taken to phi phi - way better than the ferries.

Transfer was on time (8am Phuket town) and ferry departure was a little bit late but smooth and comfortable (free water and sea sickness pills). Definitely I would recommend travel with this company.

Had a little propeller problem on the way but the lads had it sorted in no time and got there safe and sound…!
Ferry Speedboat, Bundhaya Speed Boat (Bundhaya Speed Boat), May 7, 2023
Affordable transfer from Phuket to Koh Phi Phi on a large enough ferry. Took longer than expected but only by half an hour. The ferry was rather old though, seats not too comfortable, but the inside was cooled at least. Sitting outside was possible too, but it gets quite loud.
Ferry Ferry, Chaokoh Travel Center (ชาวเกาะกรุ๊ป), May 6, 2023
Everything went well

Travelling by ferry essentials

  • We do recommend buying your ferry tickets in advance, especially if your route is served by smaller vessels that offer a limited number of daily departures. To book in advance is of primary importance not only during the high season but off-season, too. Sometimes it is ok to show up at the pier and hop on the next ferry but remember that this is not possible for any destination, and you may end up waiting for hours for the next departure and to have to change your travel plans.
  • Shipping is highly dependent on weather conditions. It mostly refers to the open sea routes, e.g. between the destinations in the open sea and the coast as well as between the islands scattered in the sea. If the waves are high, even the islands which sit closest to the shore are often cut off from the continent – all vessels may be ordered to remain in the harbor. So do keep in mind that during stormy weather, delays and cancellations may occur. Strong winds and heavy rains may interfere with your sea journey, too. So take it into consideration while making your travel plans.
  • Very often, a more expensive fare means less time spent on board, though the difference in price also may be due to the different cabin classes. Always check how long your trip lasts – it may be worth paying extra to cut your travel time to an hour instead of three, right? Travel time can be crucial if you are prone to seasickness, so choosing the cheapest ferry ticket is not always a good idea.
  • Speedboats bring you to the destination in the shortest time possible, while fast catamarans are also a decent choice, often taking only slightly more time. On some routes, slower and sometimes overnight ships are available, proving a prudent option if you are ready to spend a night on board. It actually allows you to save some bucks in your pocket that you would have otherwise spent on a hotel room. Yet again – longer ferry trips are not for everyone.
  • If you are prone to seasickness, take medicine half an hour before you board your ferry, not when you have already started feeling nausea – this way it will not help. Opt for staying on the open deck with a fresh breeze blowing into your face wherever possible. On vessels with several decks, the lower one normally feels more stable, while the upper one often is more of a rock-n-roll type.
  • A rule of thumb, choose bigger and more stable car ferries or high-speed boats if you suffer from rough seas. The former feels very steady even when stormy, and the latter is fast. Avoid catamaran-like ferries as they ride the wave rather than cut through it – which means constant ups and downs, ups and downs, OMG. If you happen to choose a catamaran, do follow our recommendation above.
  • Ferry is often not the only way to travel between certain destinations. It is obviously more scenic but usually pricier and may take much longer than if opting for a flight or a bus ride. Before you go, check if your island destination is connected to the mainland with a bridge – many islands which are located close to the shore, in fact, are.
  • Always put on your life jacket. Regulations around the world differ greatly and, in some countries, are more relaxed than in others. Anyway, almost everywhere, passengers are supposed to wear their life vests. If you are not provided with one, do not hesitate to ask where they are located.
  • Note that piers at some destinations collect a special ‘pier fee’ from all arriving passengers. As a rule, this fee is not included in your ticket price and should be paid on arrival.
  • Reading other travellers’ reviews is the best way to get an idea of what to expect from your ferry trip. Do check their experience to get the most out of your sea journey.
