The ferries they use on the busy Phuket to Koh Phi Phi route are ‘Jet Cruisers’ with a seating capacity of 450 people and a cruising speed of 16 to 18 knots. The service on these ferries gets mixed reviews. The most common complaint is the poor climate control and the length of time it takes to collect baggage from the ferry when it arrives in Koh Phi Phi.

They operate 3 ferries and the service offered depends in large part which of the three ferries they are using on the route on any particular day.
