We travelled with Seatran from Koh Samui to Koh Lanta. Everything was fine and we arrived more than punctually. The ferry seemed well maintained and the ride on the upper deck was just amazing with a nice view above sea and islands. At the Donsak...More

I agree with the reviewers who stated that different staff give conflicting instructions (eg. where to wait/line up/when to show up/where to put our luggage on the boat). Ask 2 staff the same question, get different answers. This is not our first time to koh...More

We travelled today from Koh Phangan to mainland and onward to Railay beach all with Seatran. It was first class and all pretty much on time. Boat was fast and comfortable and coach was same. Couldn’t recommend enough. Would definitely recommend and will use again.

This was a real “fustercluck” if you know what I mean. — VERY disorganized and unclear staff. Kept having three different people telling me three different things at the same time. On all levels! Example: You must wait HERE (Points finger) to go to Koh...More

Dear Sir/Madame thanks for your review. Are you a naval engineer? If yes you should know that our ferries are made by aluminum material not iron......therefore what you see on it is not rust but simply small barnacle. You probably don't know how to communicate...More

A smaller boat was swapped in because of low season but the weather was ok so the trip was smooth enough. The boat was older than the Lomprayah we took on the way out but was comfortable enough. Would happily take this service again but...More

We got a ferry from Surat Thani to Ko Samui. Pros: reasonable priced, efficient, friendly staff, on time. Cons: could have gotten it cheaper - I booked through a 3rd party site. Buying food/drinks on boat isn’t cheap - but is what you would expect....More

Hi Christina, sorry for late reply. Hope that everything goes well. Normally in case of storm we decide run or not at the last minute. From Samui to Phangan this is not a problem but it could be from Phangan to Tao.
