Ferry and Speedboat to Koh Lipe
The passenger ferry to Koh Phi Phi is operated by Tigerline Travel. This is a two stage journey. The first stage of the journey is the longest part: a 2 hour 30 minutes journey to the island of Koh Lanta. The ferry arrives at Ban Saladan Pier in Koh Lanta at 11.30 and then waits for 60 minutes before travelling onto Koh Phi Phi. The journey from Koh Lanta to Koh Phi Phi takes only 30 minutes and arrives at 13.00. Although this service is passenger ferry, rather than ferry, and it stops for an hour on route, it is the cheapest and the quickest way to travel from Koh Lipe to Koh Phi Phi and the option that most people choose.
Jolly Travel and Satun Pakbara SBC (the ‘SBC’ stands for speedboat club) operate a speedboat service. The reason the journey with these two operators takes 4 hours 30 minutes, which is 30 minutes longer than the journey on the Tigerline Travel ferry, is that the speedboat service calls in at several islands on the way to Koh Phi Phi: Koh Bolune, Koh Kradan, Koh Muk, Koh Ngai and Koh Lanta. Depending on your perspective this island hoping trip will either be a fun day out in a speedboat or an annoying stop/start journey in a cramped speedboat with a long wait before you can use a toilet or get out of the boat to smoke a cigarette. If you choose to travel from Koh Lipe to Koh Phi Phi by speedboat make sure you understand what this option involves.
