Railay Information

Transportation

The famous peninsula of Railay is hidden by the huge rock formations that characterize Krabi province, that’s why, the only way to arrive here is by boat, the good thing is that traveling by ferry is a fun journey and fortunately at Ferrysamui we have the safest ferries and speedboats to arrive at your destination without any problem.  

The fastest route is from either Ao Nang or Krabi, ideal if you are planning to visit Railay in one day. Boats are departing from 8 am until 6 pm, however, at Ferry Samui, you can depart from different destinations starting from Koh Tao, Koh Phangan, Koh Samui, Surat Thani and even Bangkok to Ao Nam Mao Pier.  We include a mini-van shuttle to the pier where you can take our ferries to your chosen destination.  

Before traveling by ferry, take into account that some days the sea might be low so it’s possible you will get your feet wet before getting into the boat, to prevent any inconvenience; we recommend reading and printing our travel tips.
