Krabi – Lanta – Phi Phi – Phuket ferry schedules

Passenger ferry on the Ao Nang - Phi Phi route
The ferry journey to Phi Phi is like a mini-cruise past the local islands
It’s essential to consult the ferry schedules if you are planning a holiday with overnight stays on any of Krabi’s islands. Getting around is easy but the timings can have a big impact on your itinerary, both in terms of getting there from, and going back to, the airport (will you be able to catch the last ferry out, or your flight home?), and also in the amount of time you need to factor in for each place: late afternoon arrivals and early morning departures mean your “day” on the island may be considerably shorter than intended.

To be completely safe with respect to flight timings, it is best to plan a night on the mainland on arrival and departure, or count at least 4 hours between your scheduled arrival time in Krabi or Ao Nang (5 hours in Phuket) and the flight departure, to allow for potential delays.

All prices listed below are for one-way adult tickets; times are current as of May 2016, though naturally are subject to change. Children aged 4 – 11 years will have a reduced fare, usually 60 – 70% of adult rate; under 4s travel free. For full list of prices, and booking, visit our Krabi ferry tickets shop.

There is no need to book ferry tickets in Krabi in advance, though many feel it is worth buying your tickets prior to travel, as most ferry companies provide a complimentary transfer from your hotel to the pier on departure, which will save both money and hassle, as most piers are out of town.

Please note that these routes are for foot passengers only. If you would like to take a car or motorbike to or from Ko Lanta, please use the local car ferry service between Saladan, Lanta Noi and Hua Hin pier (around 70km from Krabi Town). Boats run every hour or so from 6am until around 10pm.
