Boonsiri Ferry catamaran boat service between Laem Sok and Koh Kood

Boonsiri Ferry have been running their boat service to Koh Kood for over 8 years. After a bit of searching online you’ll soon learn that this passenger ferry has three names.  This arises from the fact that the Boonsiri Ferry company run a catamaran and the vessel’s name is the ‘Koh Kood Fantasea’.  Hence Boonsiri Ferry, Boonsiri catamaran and Koh Kood Fantasea.

Boonsiri Ferry began services in 2015 and in October 2018 added a second, lager vessel to their fleet.  The new 288 seat, catamaran ferry has three decks, the top deck being a VIP room, and is equipped with a modern state of the art computerized stabilizer and is fully compliant with International Safety Standards.

There are two services a day during High Season between the mainland pier in Laem Sok and Ao Salat pier in the northeast of Koh Kood.  In the Low Season there is one ferry running in each direction.

During the High Season, the boats also stop at Koh Mak and Koh Chang.  This allows anyone who wants to island hop between Koh Kood, Koh Mak and Koh Chang to do so in air conditioned comfort, rather than by speedboat. The island hopping service was cancelled in 2020 due to the covid pandemic and didn’t resume during the 2022-23 High Season.  However, the good news that it will re-start from 1 October 2023 onwards.

About the Boonsiri catamarans

Originally called the Boonsiri ‘Fantasea’, the first vessel entered service in November 2013 and quickly proved to be the fastest and most comfortable way to get to Koh Kood.  This is due to to it’s is state of the art computerized stabilizer aluminium, catamaran hull, it’s relatively light yet very stable in choppy seas.  In good weather, the catamaran can cruise at 25 Knots and the  journey takes around an hour and 15 minutes.   Which is pretty quick for a vessel that can accommodate 200 passengers plus luggage.

The ship has two decks, the lower deck can seat 150 passengers, whilst the upper deck, which also has some outdoor seating, provide seating for 50 more.   The interior spaces are nice and cool with tinted windows and reclining seats.  Passengers will also find a small shop selling snacks and drinks plus big screen TVs and free wi-fi onboard.

In 2018 the original boat was replaced with a new, larger boat of a similar style.  This can carry more passengers and is faster and more efficient.  The old boat is now used on the Koh Chang to Koh Mak to Koh Kood route which runs during the high season.

From Trat to Laem Sok pier

For passengers staying in Trat, a shuttle service by ‘songtaew’ (local pick up truck taxi)  is provided.  This costs 38 Baht per person and is not included in the price of the boat ticket. You pay the driver. If you buy boat tickets from your hotel, they’ll advise you of the time.  Or if you’re booking online, make sure you let the agent or boat company know the name of your hotel and they’ll confirm the details.

If you are flying into Trat Airport on flight PG301, then you’ll be able to take the morning service to Koh Kood at 10:45.  And if you are on PG305, arriving at 12:40, then you’ll be able to get to the pier in time for the 14:20 boat – which is the last boat of the day to Koh Kood.  However, there aren’t any shared minibuses from Trat Airport to the pier.  You’ll need to arrange a private transfer in advance.  See: for more details.  Prices are from 1,500 Baht for the 45 minute drive

Transport from Bangkok to Laem Sok pier

Many people opt to take a public bus from Bangkok to Trat, stay the night and see a little of Trat town, and then head to Koh kood the next morning.  But if you want to do the trip the same day then it’s a bit of a hassle by public transport.

There are a couple of solutions.

Firstly, it is easy to arrange a private transfer by car or minivan from Suvarnabhumi Airport or a hotel in Bangkok to the mainland pier.  This can be done on through well known sites such as  Note that if you are staying in a hotel in Bangkok, you’ll need to leave before 08:00 to be sure of catching the last boat of the day at 14:20.

Alternatively, if you want to keep costs down, Boonsiri run their own bus service between Khao San Rd, Bangkok and Laem Sok pier.  As this is run specifically for their passengers, you’re guaranteed not to miss the boat.  The Boonsiri bus is either a double decker bus or a minibus, depending on the season and the demand.

The price for a combined bus and boat ticket is a very reasonable 1,100 Baht per person.  (Or 900 Baht if travelling to Koh Chang) This can be booked through the Boonsiri Ferry website.  In Bangkok, the bus picks passengers up from outside the The Street Hostel, Tani Rd ( which is 5 minutes walk from Khao San Rd )

The service also runs in reverse, from Laem Sok to Bangkok,  and for passengers heading to Suvarnabhumi Airport, the bus will drop off at Latkrabang airport link train station.  Passengers can then take the city line train for the 10 minute journey to the airport.

Finally, for anyone bringing their own car, there’s secure, covered parking available at the Boonsiri office in Laem Sok.  This is 50 Baht per night.

      The best option is to book a combined minibus and boat ticket with Boonsiri. So you’re guaranteed not to miss the boat.

    can you please let me know if there is wifi available on the Boonsiri bus/van between BKK and Koh Kood?

    • November 20, 2023 at 5:57 am

      No. If you need Internet during the journey you can buy a Thai SIM card cheaply when you land in Bangkok or any 7-eleven minimart.

    I am planning my holiday for January/February next year. I am struggling to find the correct departure and arrival times of the ferry from Koh Kood to the mainland.
    At all costs, I need to catch the first flight from Trat to Bangkok at 13:10.
    Can you help me with the planning.

    • April 25, 2023 at 1:03 pm

      The ferry timetables won’t have been officially announced yet. But they have been the same for the past few years.

      So you’ll be able to take the Boonsiri Ferry or Koh Kood Express or Koh Kood Princess and will be able to get to the airport in time for PG306.

      Don’t worry about it.

      • April 26, 2023 at 11:44 am

        thanks for the response and reassurance. But can you tell me what the first departure time of the ferry is of these companies you mentioned.

        • April 26, 2023 at 11:45 am

          The timetables are on this site.

    Hello. Can you please give me details of how long the ferry ride is and how long the bus ride is when travelling from Koh kood to Bangkok.

    • February 22, 2023 at 3:17 am

      It is an hour by boat from Koh Kood to Laem Sok pier. And from Laem Sok pier to the centre of Bangkok is around six and a half hours, depending on traffic.

    Car allowed to ko kood

    • December 22, 2022 at 10:27 am

      There aren’t any vehicle ferries to Koh kood – so it isn’t easy to take a car to the island. If you are planning to live on Koh Kood then you could hire a barge or transport boat to take it.

  • February 15, 2020 at 6:32 am

    Yesterday I sent you a form about tickets to Koh Kood on Boonsiri Ferries (and the day before sent a more general enquiry) but I got no reply. I’m therefore not sure that you ever received the forms? We are two adults and a child of 6, arriving 19/2 on PG 305 and leaving 24/2 by PG 306. We would like to buy return taxi + catamaran tickets. Is this possible? Thank you!

    • February 15, 2020 at 8:16 am

      I didn’t receive that. So I have just emailed you.
