Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Our boat literally didn’t bother to collect us despite us checking in half an hour earlier than departure, as instructed. Nothing turned up and we were told the reason was the captain had “checked the onboard passengers for their tickets, and didn’t see any for our pier” (Koh Mook) so he just didn’t bother coming - without thinking to check for any bookings on his manifesto for the people he was supposed to pick up! We were told we had to wait for the next boat. Then we were told the next boat we had waited for and been promised would take us direct to Lipe now wasn’t going to come either, it had decided to go past. Then we were told now we had to go for lunch, and just accept losing hours of our day, before being put on a boat in another two hour’s time. They would pay for lunch, but only at one specific place. So we’ve spent the entire day waiting at a pier and being dragged around the island in a grand cluster f***, being lied to by smiles that all have joints burning down in their corner.

Laughably, this is the best rated of the speedboat companies and why we booked with them. We’re now double booking every trip with different companies to try and make sure at least one arrives near departure time… we have a flight to catch next. Pray for us…

Went from koh lipe to koh mook and koh mook to koh phi phi. Late … exactly 45 min. So just update schedule. Shore staff awful in koh mook. Show up half hour early plus 45 min late no cover Shore staff couldn’t take his face outta phone. No water offered no shelter. Not impressed. Boat crew great!!!

One way, 09.00, Koh Lipe to Koh Lanta. This journey can be direct with Bundhaya or indirect with other operators, a slower trip dropping off and picking up people in Muk, Kradan, Ngai etc. Our direct boat set off on time and took 2hr 45min arriving early.
Check in at the Bundhaya beachside office was quite simple. A single desk for all destinations. A luggage tag for your bag, a sticker for your shirt and a boarding pass to get on the right boat, all colour coordinated for your destination. Wait on the beach, in shade at that time of day, and out comes a staff member. She shouts the destination, holds up the colour card for that particular destination and you board in order of check in. All actually well organised.
Free seating on board, arrive at Koh Lanta. Baggage for yellow tags placed inside the pier for Lanta passengers, red for onward destinations to be collected and wait for an hour to reboard for Phi Phi and Phuket. Would use them again without hesitation.

This company is so organised! After an horrendous journey to koh lipe (2hours over) we were dreading going back to krabi/ koh lanta but when we checked in we were given coloured boarding pass numbers. They call upon your number (like a flight) so it’s not a mad fight to the boat. And we arrived at our destination 1 hour early! So glad I done some research before booking as this company is far better than the other competitor!

1. Check wind speed, before booking speed boat. It can be very bumpy and many people get sea sick on windy days. Take ferry instead.
2. Use noise canceling headphones during the trip.

If above rules to be followed, it is perfectly fine to take speedboat with small kids. Definitely fastest way between Thailand islands.

Having read the reviews of all speed boat companies departing from Saladan Pier, this one seemed the best of a bad bunch. Lots of people queuing with their luggage on the pier, in the sun, with no proper communication from the staff. Total chaos ensued whilst waiting for the speed boat. People clambering over one boat to get to another. We finally boarded out boat an hour late. A member of the crew counted the heads on board and after doing this 3 times we were then asked to get off the boat and onto another one!!

We finally left the pier. We were sitting right at the back of the boat on a bench seat right in front of the 4 engines, the noise was horrendous. Half-way through the journey it started raining heavily, visibility was very poor and we had to get up and move from the back as there was not enough protection from the rain. Sheeting was eventually put over all the bags that were up front and open to the elements, but it was insufficient and everything in our bags got wet.

If we had to do this journey again, we would opt for the slow ferry crossing.

I chose to go with Bundhaya to visit Ko Lanta from Phuket (and back). Both times, the boat ride was good. For Phuket - Ko Lanta, the check-in process was a bit confusing, and there was a delay of 45 mins (they informed us right away). The boat also stopped at Phi Phi to drop off some folks.

While returning to Phuket, the boat came on time and was bigger and better than the previous one. Reached to Phuket on time as well.

The bags were handled well.

Boat was delayed by 3 hours from Koh Lipe; the company did not inform reason for the boat being delayed nor an apology. We missed our flights back to KL. Don’t ever travel with this Company.

The speedboat is OK but was running more than half an hour late.

Do not buy the taxi ticket they try to sell you on the boat. It is overpriced and takes much longer than getting a tuk tuk at the pier.

They happily took 400 baht from us saying we were the second stop, but actually we drove around 4 other resorts (including going back in the wrong direction). The journey took more than double what it should have, and the hotel told us we’d overpaid.

The guy just laughed in my face when I challenged him. Very dishonest and annoying.
