Ferry timings from Krabi to Koh Lanta

I was thinking that there were 2 ferrys from Krabi to Koh Lanta every day - one at 10.30 and another one at 13.30.

But now i hear that there is only one at 11.00 am ?

Can someone confirm please.

One of the ferries seems to be either under repair or the service has been withdrawn (depending on whom you ask), so now only one boat is running per day at 11:30. There's hourly van sevice, though.

Thanks a lot for the quick confirmation.

My flight arrives only at 12pm (scheduled arrival). That rules out the ferry option for me. Hence i can either take the public minivan or use the expensive private taxi option. Hmmm.

Does the 8am return ferry from Lanta to Krabi operate ?

The morning ferry is operating as usual. At least it was two weeks ago when I took it from Koh Jum. Just take the van into Lanta - 250 baht. There's no sense spending the extra money on a private car.

Hi bill20, you mean we can take the van from Krabi airport to Lanta hotel at 250 baht per pax?

You'll need to get a taxi (300 baht I believe) or a bus (100 baht per person) to the place where the vans depart. They don't run directly from the airport. Once you get to Lanta, the van driver will take you to hotel.

Just to confirm the van transfers go on a car ferry every hour is that correct?

The vans leave every hour and use 2 car ferries (which of course run more often than hourly) to get over first to Lanta Noi and then to Lanta Yai. See andaman-island-hopping.com/overviewcentral.h… and andaman-island-hopping.com/islands/lanta.htm
