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. * NOTE: The island hopping service was cancelled in 2020 due to the covid pandemic and has not yet re-started. There are no plans for it to run in the 2022-23 High Season *

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: TratAirportGuide.com 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 iamkohchang.com. 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.

Hi there. Any idea if it’s possible to catch the Boonsiri Bus somewhere near Suvarnabhumi to go to Koh Kood? Thx!
The Bus departs from the Boonsiri Ferry office on Tanee Road in Bangkok. It doesn’t pick up from near the airport.
Does Bus depart every day? We need transport from Bangkok to Koh Kood on Saturday 29 of February. Do you need to book tickets beforehand
Yes. Every day. You should buy tickets in advance.
Hello, do you know anyway to transport with car? Any ferry can take car from Trat to Koh Kood?
The only way to take a vehicle to Koh kood is to take it by barge that is delivering construction materials. If you are living permanently on the island then you will be able to find someone on Koh Kood to help arrange it. But iof you are visiting as a tourist then there is no way to take a car to the island.
Due to unexpected flight change of Bangkok airlines we arrive at Trat airport
on 26th of December at 15.:45 p.m.
Can you give us a quote for a private boat transfer to Koh Kood

Originally Boonsiri ferry announced they would run the Koh Chang – Koh Mak – Koh kood service during the low season. However, now they won’t. The boats will only go from Laem Sok to Koh Kood. With no stop at Koh Mak.
We are looking for a ferry from Kho mak to laem sok pier for 21th february ( 4 adults)
unfortunatly I have just find 2H15 mn trip…. is there a possibility to go directly from kho mak to laem sok pier?
thanks for assistance
There’s only one boat from Koh Mak to Laem Sok. It is slow because it picks up on the way to Koh Kood and then you go back from Koh Kood to the mainland.
It is much quicker to take one of the speedboats from Koh Mak to the mainland pier at Laem Ngop. Then it’s about 40 minutes drive by taxi to Laem Sok.
How can I change my departure time on my booking?
If you booked direct with the ferry company, you can contact them to change it. If you booked through an agent, contact the agent.
Hello! I would like to book a ticket on your boat on 22-23 (I don’t know when exactly). The problem is i cannot book it through 12goasia website. Is there another possibility to buy a ticket?
You can also book on the Boonsiri Ferry website – https://boonsiriferry.com/en or https://www.kohkoodcatamaran.com/
Hello Ferry Team,
is it possible to go with the scooter on the ferry? We are 7 men and wanted to go to Koh Kood by scooter …
Koh Kut Princess can take a couple of scooters on the boat. But only locals sometimes take their bikes on the boat. You can rent scooters when you are on Koh Kood.
