A car ferry service linking Sattahip and Koh Samui has been launched as efforts continue to revive domestic tourism post-Covid. The “Blue Dolphin” ferry service is operated by the Seahorse Ferry company and departs from Chuksamed Pier in the Sattahip district, to Koh Samui.

Sattahip is a leisurely 1 hour drive south of Pattayar.

The journey takes around 13 hours (including loading passengers and cars, and unloading at the other end( and the vessel can carry around 200 private vehicles and 586 passengers, according to The Phuket Express report.

It has 15 rooms, with 5 different room types, including Premier, Suite, First Class, Comfort and Capsule. The ferry company also operates a service between Sattahip and Songkhla, which was launched in November 2021, having been postponed due to the pandemic.

The schedule for the Sattahip to Samui route has not yet been confirmed, nor is it possible to book at the time of writing, as the company’s website is still not operational. Passengers are advised to check the Samui Cruise Facebook page for more information.

A daily ferry service that used to run between Sattahip and Hu Hin was cancelled in 2020.
