HUA HIN: -- The first ferry service between Pattaya and Hua Hin will be launched on January 17 after a successful test run of the service from Pattaya to Hua Hin on Thursday following several postponements due to strong winds and high waves.

 

200 passengers who included Thai and foreign tourists, members of the media and locals were on board Royal One ferry at the Balihai pier in southern Pattaya for the journey to the fish market pier in Hua Hin. The entire trip took two and a half hours.

 

The ferry was escorted by a Royal Thai Navy frigate and a patrol boat of the Marine Department during the test run to ensure safety for the ferry and its passengers.

This ferry needs to be able to take cars and motorbikes otherwise they are wasting their time

 

Why?

2-1/2 hours?  Not bad.  

 

I'd gladly pay $30-40 to avoid 4-6 hours on the highways here in Thailand.

The only problem is you maybe delayed for a week. Is reliability not as important as comfort?

What happens if the ferry cancels a trip and you have already paid...do you get your money back straight away?The last ferry operators were plagued with bad sea conditions and cancellations and that ultimately was their demise and the end of that.I for one hopes that this new venture works but have my doubts for the long term!
