We are happy to announce the integration of hi-speed ferry services in Thailand from Phuket, Krabi and Trang to the islands in the Andaman sea. Tigerline Ferry operates ferry routes to Koh Phi Phi, Koh Lanta, Koh Ngai, Koh Kradan, Koh Mook, Koh Libong, Koh Lipe, plus an international ferry link to Langkawi in Malaysia.
Koh Phi Phi
Located 43km west from Krabi coast, Koh Phi Phi archipelago consists of six islands. Ko Phi Phi Don is the largest and only populated island. Ko Phi Phi Leh is a smaller island to the south popularised by Maya Bay, currently closed to tourists in efforts to recover the marine ecosystem and coral reefs. In the meantime, visitors can visit Koh Phai (Bamboo Island), Koh Young (Mosquito Island), Bida Nok and Bida Nai to access the beaches and practice snorkelling or kayaking.
Located just off the coast between Krabi and Trang province, Koh Lanta is one of Andaman’s most precious islands. Visiting Mu Koh Lanta national park, diving or walking along beautiful sandy beaches will make your trip memorable.
Koh Ngai is a tiny island in Krabi Province easily reachable from Trang. Besides white beaches and diving activities, the island offers some spectacular jungle trekking through virgin jungle. As there are no roads on the island, getting around from one beach to another must be done on foot or longtail boat.
Koh Kradan is one of the most beautiful islands in Trang province. Its emerald-colored waters allow the swimmers to clearly observe the corals. There are very few accommodation options in the island, so travellers can enjoy a peaceful environment, admiring the sunsets and overlooking other islands nearby.
Located in the Hat Chao Mai Marine National Park, Koh Mook is the closest island to Trang coastline. Travellers can visit the fisherman village and enjoy the seafood restaurants. From Koh Mook, visitors can take a boat tour to do snorkeling at nearby islands such as Koh Ma, Koh Cheok, and Koh Waen.
Koh Libong is the largest island in Trang province, but actually not the most crowded. Well-known for its flora and fauna as much as its beaches, the island is home to small Muslim fishing villages still not affected by mass tourism.
Famous for its white sandy beaches and turquoise blue waters, Koh Lipe is one of the gems of the Andaman sea located in the border between Thailand and Malaysia. Travellers can enjoy activities such as diving, snorkeling, kayaking, sailing or simply sunbathing on any of its four main beaches, featuring clear, calm and shallow waters.

These transfers are carried out in small boats or long tail boats run by local fishermen which are not included in the ticket price and must be paid separately (50 THB per person) directly to the boat driver.
Baolau integrates online ticket booking in partnership with Tigerline Ferry. Travellers can book online until 2 days before the departure time and receive the e-tickets by email. Passengers are requested to bring the electronic voucher on their mobile phone (no need to have a printed copy) to Tigerline Ferry office and collect the physical ticket and boarding pass. We also recommend passengers to confirm the schedule with the operator on the same day as departure, as the ferry service depends on sea and weather conditions.
