Koh Kood Princess has been running a fast passenger ferry service between Laem Sok and Ao Salad bay in the northeast of Koh Kood for over 15 years.
Back in 2002, the Koh Kood Princess Ferry Co., Ltd was the first company to operate a speedboat service between the mainland, Koh Mak and Koh Kood. And this was quickly followed in 2003 by the first, large passenger vessel to the island, the ‘Ninmangkorn Express Boat’.
The current vessel, which has been in service since 2012, is the ‘Koh Kood Princess’. A 33 metre long fiberglass boat which was built in Singapore. It has three decks and can carry 300 passengers – most in air-conditioned cabins. But there is some outdoor seating on the top level and at the rear of the boat. It is the largest of the ferries running to the island.
