Passenger Boats to Koh Kood

Koh Kood is located around 45Km from the mainland and is accessible only by passenger ferry and speedboat.  There isn’t an airport on the island, although the Soneva Kiri Resort does have a private airstrip on a nearby island, for its very well-heeled guests’ to use.

There are four passenger boat companies running regular services to Koh Kood from Laem Sok pier on the mainland. These are ‘Koh Kood Princess’ , ‘Ko Kut Express ,  ‘Boonsiri Ferry. and ‘SuperJet Ferry‘.  These companies all operate, large, high speed vessels.

The Koh Kood Princess is the largest, this can both seat around 300 passengers.

The newest vessel is the Boonsiri catamaran which also offers free wi-fi onboard.  And the newest company is SuperJet Ferry which started running services in July 2019 and also claims the fastest crossing time of just 45 minutes between the mainland and Koh Kood.

Ko Kut Express run both a large passenger boat and also a speedboat service.  They took over the running of the Siriwhite speedboat, which you will see mentioned on some websites, and re-branded it at the Ko Kut Express Speedboat in 2015.

As yet, there are no vehicle ferries to the island.  Which ensures the island remains far quieter than other large islands in Thailand.  However all boat companies provide secure parking for passengers arriving by car.  The boat company’s ticket offices and parking areas are all marked on the map at the bottom of this page.

Some of the luxury resorts also run their own boat services for guests, so if you are staying at a 5 star hotel then it’s worth inquiring if they include the transfer when booking a room.

During the Low Season, the large passenger boats all leave around the same time from the mainland and from Koh Kood.  The Boonsiri ferry just runs once per day.  In addition, some services may not run if the boats are undergoing annual maintenance.

Laem Sok is located at the very southernmost tip of a peninsula about 20 minutes drive from Trat town.  The ferry piers for Koh Chang are around 45 minutes drive and Trat Airport is an hour away.

How to book boat tickets to Koh Kood?

(Online bookings through 12Go Asia )

There’s very little else on this peninsula apart from some local hamlets; fishing and farming communities; a large area of protected mangroves and a couple of resorts.  The aging Ban Pu Resort and the far nicer, newer Analay Check In and Chill Out.  This is a new resort located a stone’s throw from the ferry pier and ideal for anyone arriving late afternoon and wanting a good value place to stay before catching the boat the next morning.

It is important to note that the boats to Koh Kood stop running mid-afternoon, even in High Season.  From November to May the last scheduled departure is the Boonsiri Catamaran at 14:20.   ( In Low Season the last sailing is at 13:00 ).  If you are arriving after this time and want to get to Koh Kood the same day, the only option is a private speedboat.  However, that isn’t cheap, expect to pay around 16,000 Baht for a one way trip.  And the last time it is possible to take the speedboat is around 16:00.

So getting to the pier the same day you want to get to Koh Kood requires either a very early start from Bangkok or having a night in Trat.  If you are coming from Koh Chang, then all you need to do , during High Season, is buy a ticket for either the Bangbao Boat or Kai Bae Hut speedboat service.  They both run daily services from 1 November until 30 April.

However, it is important to bear in mind that from May to October, there are no inter-island boat services.  So getting from Koh Chang to Koh Kood during the Low Season entails having to head back to the mainland.

Make sure you are aware of this when booking an off -season, two island holiday.

As there are only passenger boats to Koh Kood, arranging transport direct to your hotel isn’t possible.  Fortunately, when you arrive on Koh Kood, all boat services provide transport to your resort.   There is no additional charge for this as it is included in the price of your boat ticket.

Likewise, when you return from Koh Kood to the mainland, the transport from your hotel to the pier is included in the price.  The exception is with the Koh Kut Express Speedboat – which picks up from resort piers on the west coast of the island from locations including, and north of, Bangbao Bay.  This just leaves you to plan how you will get to the mainland pier.

How to get to Laem Sok pier

By Plane:

If you are flying into Trat on Bangkok Airways flight PG301 or PG305 then you will be able to get to Laem Sok and onwards to son, you will have to take PG301 in order to reach the ferry pier in time for the last boat of the day.

There isn’t any shared transport available from Trat Airport to Laem Sok, but a private car or minibus can be booked from around 1,500 Baht here

For more information on flying to Trat and then getting to Laem Sok, read this guide to Trat Airport

By Car:

Driving to the pier from Suvarnabhumi Airport or a hotel in Bangkok is very straightforward.  There are good roads all the way and there is rarely any delays due to traffic jams or roadworks.  Figure on around 5 to 5 and a half hours driving time, allowing for one quick stop on the way.  All boat companies provide secure, covered parking at the pier.  This is charged at 50 Baht per day (24 hours)

By Bus:

There are regular bus services from Bangkok to Trat and it is also possible to take a public minibus from Ekkamai or Morchit bus station.

Bus Bangkok - Trat ฿ 350–390 5h 30m
  •   Express 05:00, 06:00, 08:00, 10:00, 12:00, 13:00, 14:00, 15:00, 16:00
  •   Express 06:00, 07:00, 07:30, 08:00, 08:30, 09:00, 09:30, 10:00, 10:30, 11:00, 11:30, 12:00, 12:30, 13:00, 13:30, 14:00, 14:30, 15:00, 15:30, 16:00

But if you want to go direct from Bangkok to Laem Sok pier then you will have to use the private bus service run by Boonsiri Ferry.  This connects with their boat.  This departs at 05:30 and 08:00 from the Khao San Road area in Bangkok during High Season.  A combined bus and boat ticket costs 850 Baht, which is good value.  However, note that there are regular negative comments made by passengers on the driving skills of the bus drivers.  More details

For anyone staying in Trat, all the ferry companies provide transport, by ‘songtaew’ shared pick up truck taxi, from hotels in Trat to Laem Sok pier.  The price is 38 Baht per person, payable to the driver.

You’ll be able to buy your boat tickets a from your hotel in Trat when you arrive.  Or they can be booked direct with boat companies online. However, outside the peak New Year and Thai New Year (Songkran) holidays, advance booking isn’t usually required.

Private Transfer by car or minibus

As already mentioned, private transfers by car or minibus are available from Trat Airport.  But they can also be arranged for people heading to Koh Kood from Don Meuang Airport, Suvarnabhumi Airport and hotels in Bangkok or  Pattaya Airport. Prices are from 4,400 Baht for a private car from a hotel in Bangkok to the pier.  More prices and online booking. If you are flying into Don Meuang then you’ll need to be on a flight that lands before 05:00 to be sure of getting to the island the same day, and from Suvarnabhumi Airport, a flight that lands before 06:00.

At Laem Sok Pier

Laem Sok pier, Trat

Laem Sok pier is a very ‘no frills’ pier, just a long concrete pier stretching out into the ocean.  Fortunately, the boat companies provide comfortable waiting areas complete with toilets, coffee-shop, simple restaurants and car parks for people waiting for their boat.

This main pier is where the large passenger boats depart and arrive.  There is a separate pier, known locally as ‘Coral pier’, about 5 minutes drive away, which is often – but not always – used by speedboats from resorts and the Koh Kut Express speedboat.

Boats From Koh Chang to Koh Kood

Hopping from Koh Chang to Koh Mak and Koh Kood during the High Season is very easy.  You can use the two daily speedboat services to get from Koh Chang to the outlying islands.

The two services are run by Kai Bae Hut Speedboat and Bangbao Boat.  Ticket price is 600 Baht to Koh Mak and 900 Baht to Koh Kood.  This also includes pick up by taxi from your hotel on Koh Chang to take you to the departure point.  The boat will drop you off at your resort’s pier – or the nearest point on Koh Kood.  The furthest south they stop on Koh Kood is at the resorts in Bangbao Bay.

It takes around an hour and  a half to two hours to get from Koh Chang to Koh Kood.  This includes a brief stop on Koh Mak when some passengers will get on and off.  If you are staying at the north end of Koh Kood, for example at Baan Makok, then you’re journey will be about 20 minutes shorter than someone staying much further south on Koh Kood e.g. at Siam Beach Resort in Bangbao Bay.

Oct 2018 update: Boonsiri Ferry have recently announced they will be running a Koh Chang – Koh Mak – Koh Kood service starting in late 2018.  The ticket price from Koh Chang to Koh Mak is 500 Baht and from Koh Chang to Koh Kood it is 750 Baht.  This high speed catamaran can seat 200 passengers in air-conditioned cabin, plus has free wifi on board.

      You can take a motorbike on either of the vehicle ferries from the mainland to Koh Chang, that’s no problem. Koh Kut Express have space for a couple of scooters on their ferry. You could try contacting them.

      Boonsiri Ferry are scheduled to start their service from Koh Kood to Koh Chang on 1 October, but you can;t take a motorbike on their boat.

    Hi! Are there other alternatives going to Koh Kood from Laem Sok Pier on the same day if I’m taking the PG305 flight on 21 September? Seems from the schedules available, I won’t make it from Trat Airport to the last ferry.

      There aren’t any public ferries in the afternoon during low season.

      So the only option would be a private speedboat. However that’s expensive. Around 15,000 – 20,000 Baht. Your hotel on Koh Kood would be able to arrange that for you.

      No boats use Nam Leuk pier now as it is damaged and needs repairing.

      But if you are staying nearby, Kai Bae Hut Speedboat will drop you off on the beach in front of your resort.

      The only slow boat to Koh Kood leaves from Bangbao and drops passengers off at Ao Salat pier in the north east of Koh Kood.

      If you’re planning on taking a speedboat in the high season then it is better to book tickets in advance, especially if you are taking the last boat of the day and can’t afford to miss it. You can do that online for the boat on 22 December. But you can buy tickets when you are on Koh Kood for one of the boats to Koh Chang on 26 December.

      At the moment the sea is calm and the sun is shining. But there is usually some rain every day at this time of year and thunderstorms are forecast later this week. Usually heavy rain or storms are at night or early morning.

      The boats won’t be full in July as it is the low season. But if you want to buy tickets in advance then just buy for the 18 July. You can get the return tickets when you are on the island. It’s also good to wait and see what the weather will be like at that time of year. If it is bad then maybe 3-4 days will be long enough and you will want to return earlier.

      Hi Thomas

      If you are landing early then you can get to Koh Kood the same day. The last boat is at 15:00. You will need to take a private transfer from the airport to Laem Sok pier, then take a passenger boat to the island. See: https://iamkohchang.com/getting-here/car-minibus-transfers.html for transfer booking. The other option is to fly to Trat on either flight PG301 or PG305 and then take a minibus or private transfer to the pier.

      When you are on Koh Chang, buy tickets for either the Kai Bae Hut Speedboat or Bangbao Boat Speedboat. They will drop you off at Baan Makok.

      The last boat off Koh Kood is at 13:00. Take that and then, either a private transfer or pick up truck taxi to your hotel in Trat.

      No. Unless your hotel can send a private speedboat. But that will be very expensive, around 18 – 20,000 Baht. Stay the night in Trat or Koh Chang, and then next morning go to Koh Kood.

      If you arrange a private transfer at 11:15 from the pier to Trat Airport you won’t have any problem getting to the airport in time for flight PG306.

      The wooden boat takes around 3 and a half hours to get to Koh Kood. The ticket price is 750 Baht per person. This includes transfer from your hotel in Kai Bae to the pier in Bangbao.

    Hi
    I would like to book tickets for the ferry to Koh Kut.
    Is it only the one ferry company that has online booking.
    Or is it ok to purchase tickets at ferry terminal. I will be visiting February next year and driving down from BKK
    Thanks

      You can buy tickets when you arrive at the pier. No need to book online. But it is best to arrive at the pier as early as you can, just in case one boat is full and you have to wait for the next one.

      Assuming the high season schedule will be the same as last year. Then yes. If it changes, then the last boat will be the Boonsiri Ferry at 14:20. But at the moment the high season schedules haven’t been confirmed. for the speedboats.

    Hello, in january/february 2019 we will be cycling in Thailand. After cycling in the Isaan we like to go from Trat to koh Kood, koh Mak, koh Chang to Chantabury. Is it possible to take our bicycles with us on the boat to koh Kood and from koh Kood to koh Chang?

      It is possible to do.

      You can take your bicycles on the passenger ferries from the mainland to Koh Kood. Then from Koh Kood to Koh Mak you should take the Boonsiri Ferry, as the speedboats won’t allow bicycles. From Koh Mak to Koh Chang you can take the wooden passenger boat operated by Bangbao Boat. And from Koh Chang to the mainland it is easy to go on the large vehicle ferries.

          There is a speedboat to Kai Bae from Koh Mak. But if you have bicycles you’ll probably need to take the wooden boat to Bangbao.

    Hi, how often are ferries canceled due to bad weather during low season? We are planning trip to Koh Mak and Koh Kood from 10 – 22 August. We are a bit worried about being stuck there and missing flights if the weather turns. Thanks

      It’s rare the big passenger boats to Koh Kood are cancelled. Although one was damaged in a storm last week and is out of service for a couple of weeks.

      There are only speedboats to Koh Mak. So more chance of them being cancelled if there is very bad weather.

      There aren’t any boats from Koh Mak to Koh Kood in August, so you have to head back to the mainland to get between the islands.

      If you arrive in trat on time then you’ll be able to take a pick up truck taxi to Laem Sok pier – about 30 to 40 minutes drive away. Then you would be in time for the last boat, the Ko Kut Express speedboat at 15:00.

      But I think it’s unlikely that everything will run exactly on time, so it’s better to plan for having a night in Trat.

      Koh Kood Princess sometime takes a scooter or two. You will have to contact them to see if it is possible on the date you want to travel . But it is much easier to leave your bike at the car park of the boat company and then rent a scooter when you get to Koh Kood.

      The boats from Koh Chang to Koh kood go from Bangbao and Kai Bae on the other side of the island. They don’t pick people up in Jek Bae. You would have to go around to the other side or maybe get picked up at Ao Sapporot ferry pier or White Sand beach. Ask your resort to call thew boat companies and see what is possible.

      There aren’t any buses to Laem Sok pier. So you should take an early bus to Trat and then pickup truck taxi to Laem Sok. It usually takes about 5 and a half hours from Ekamai to Trat. So I suggest taking a bus or minibus about 5 –

    Good day! we will land at 6:50am in the BKK airport on 29th January. At 8 am we have a private minibus transfer for 5 people(4 adults and 1 baby).

    As i understand, it’s not a fact that we will catch 13:00 KoKoh Kut Express boat… 5 hours not always enough to get to Laem Sok from BKK…

    So, if we won’t buy boat tickets in advance, is there any risk that all tickets for this and for next boat at 14:20 will be sold out? What is the best way to do in our situation?

    Many thanks for your answer!

    Koh Kut Express 350 Baht 13:00 14:00
    Boonsiri Fantasea Catamaran ( via Koh Mak ) 500 Baht 14:20 16:00

      You should get to the pier in time. The 14:20 boat is very unlikely to be full. Usually only at New year and Thai holidays. So no need to buy tickets in advance. Wait until you get to the pier to buy tickets. There is also another speedboat at 15:00

        1)Am i right that 14:20 Catamaran has the route via Koh Mak so it will take not 1 hour to get to Koh Kood pier but 2 hour?

        2)We are afraid of speed boat because 2years baby will be with us and we do not know how it will go by speedboat, in addition as i can see in weather forecast, it’s not a good weather for coming week and the sea probably will be with waves…

        Is the sea wavy or calm today and yesterday?

      Take the last boat off Koh Kood at 13:00, as you will have a long time to wait at the airport. There’s no point in leaving earlier than that. All the boats go to Laem Sok pier in Trat.

      Please see: https://tratairportguide.com/transport-to-koh-chang/ for details of shared minibus service to Laem Sok pier. But from Laem Sok to Trat Airport, only a private transfer is possible.

      If you are on PG305 then you will need to take the 14:20 Boonsiri Ferry to Koh Kood.

    Hello,
    We ware going to travel from Koh Chang to Koh Kood on 09, 10 or 11 July 2017. As I understand there is no way to get the speed boat between these 2 island during low season which is July, I am right? So the only option is to return from Koh Chang to Laem Sok in Trat and take the speed boat at 13:30 to Koh Kood? Is this boat the only one? Does it operate every day? How to buy the tickets? Is it possible online? I found the webpage but not sure we can trust it:
    https://12go.asia/en/checkout

    Or maybe we still have a chance to depart from Koh Chang Bang Bao Pier to Koh Kood? If not, the private boat transfer is also impossible? (if we can arrange it how much will it cost?). We really need your help as I cannot understand the right information.
    Thank you very much!

      Hi Daria

      There are several boats from Laem Sok to Koh Kood. The speedboat might not be be running if the sea is rough, but you can take the Boonsiri Catamaran or Koh Kut Express or Koh Kood Princess from the mainland. You can buy tickets when you get to the pier. No need to book in advance. The 12go.asia site doesn’t have online booking for all the boat companies.

      You’ll need to take a taxi from the pier for Koh Chang about 45Km to Laem Sok to take the boat to Koh Kood.

      There aren’t any boats from Koh Chang to Koh Kood during the low season. A private speedboat would probably be around 15,000 Baht.

        Hi there,
        GREAT THANKS for the answers, they help a lot!
        So, we depart from Koh Chang (13 July), reach Trat Pier, take taxi from there to Laem Sok and take the boat to Koh Kood (speedboat or others). Hope I understand right.
        How much time will it take by taxi and how much will this taxi cost?
        And other important question: at what time depart the boats from Laem Sok to Koh Kood? Or till what time? We need to plan the departure..
        What will be the price for the boat transfer to Koh Kood?
        One more question: on 18 July we will travel back from Koh Kood. Are there the fixed departure times from Koh Kood to Laem Sok?
        And the last one: after Koh Kood on 18 July we will need to take a bus back to Bangkok. Where will we find these buses? I thought to buy the return ticket when we will buy the ticket for the bus or mini bus from BKK when we arrive at 07:20 in the morning on 11 July (we will go directly to Trat and Koh Chang from the airport). Does it make sense to buy return ticket? We will stay in Bangkok for one night and a day before flying back.
        Thank you and sorry for so many questions again!

          I dont know how much the local drivers will charge for a taxi from one of the piers for boats from Koh Chang to Laem Sok pier. If you want to arrange a driver to take you from your hotel on Koh Chang to Laem Sok pier then you can book it at: http://iamkohchang.com/getting-here/private-transfers-prices.html

          Prices for the ferries and the timetables for boats to Koh Kood are shown on this page of this site. ^^ Look up ^^

          If you want to take a bus to Bangkok you will have to take the free shuttle from Laem Sok pier to Trat bus station. Buses go about every hour from there to Bangkok. Don’t buy a return ticket. It’s better to leave your options open.

      It is easy to arrange a private transfer from Suvarnabhumi Airport to Laem Sok pier, trat. See details https://iamkohchang.com/getting-here/private-transfers-prices.html You then take a boat to Koh Kood and the boat company provides free transport from the pier on Koh Kood to your hotel.

      Then, when you are at Baan Makok buy tickets for one of the passenger boats to Laem Sok pier, Trat. Ticket price from 350 – 500 Baht per person.
