Ferry Operators & Contacts:

There are nowat least six different ferry companies offering services between Ha Tien, Rach Gia and Phu Quoc Islvà.Such is the pace of change, that I wouldn’t be surprised if one or two more ferry operators arrive sầu on the scene within the next year or two. All ferry companies have sầu websites and liên hệ telephone numbers, which I’ve sầu listed below. In general, the ferry company websites are OK, but they aren’t always updated, và in some cases they’re in Vietnamese only (even if the language symbols suggest otherwise). Phone hotlines are also OK, và staff are generally well-trained, with enough English to communicate with non-Vietnamese speakers. But, as a general rule, the information on ferry company websites should be treated only as an indicationof services, rather than the current reality. *Note:by the time you read this, Ngoc Thanh khô may not be operating boats to Phu Quoc anymore.

Booking Tickets:

In general, booking tickets for fast boats and car ferries is pretty easy and straightforward, whether for passengers or for motorbikes & cars. Click below for more information:

*

PASSENGER TICKETS: Passenger tickets for all fast boat & car ferry companies can be purchased at the ticket offices at the boat piers or at offices in the towns of Ha Tien, Rach Gia, & Duong Dong (on Phu Quoc), or from most guesthouses, hotels, resorts, và travel agents on Phu Quoc Island và in Ha Tien và Rach Gia, as well as some in Ho Chi Minch City. Some ferry companies also offer online booking through their websites, but not all of them (seeContactfor details). Alternatively, you can book most fast boat(but not car ferry) tickets online through Baovệ sinh.com.

Ticket prices are more or less fixed no matter where you buy them (although sometimes there is a small commission charged), so most travellers simply book their tickets through their accommodation. Personally, I prefer to lớn go down to lớn the ports to lớn book my tickets, but this is because I enjoy the atmosphere of the habourfront and I usually have my own means of transportation to get there. (*Note: it’s advisable to book tickets for fast boat services at least a day in advance, because they tend to lớn fill up very quickly, especially during high season ).

*

Buying passenger tickets in person is easy at ticket agents, hotels, or at the boat piers, or even online

MOTORBIKE & CAR TICKETS: If you’re travelling by motorbike, all fast boats can accommodate around a couple of dozen bikes, but it’s best to book at least a day in advance, because space is limited and demvà is high. Prices vary depending on the type of motorxe đạp. Although you can book the space for your motorxe đạp at the fast boat ticket offices, payment is generally not made until you board the boat. Be aware thatbaggage handlers, who are in charge of your motorxe đạp, sometimes try lớn charge an unofficial ‘handling fee’, butit’s such a small amount that it doesn’t matter. When taking your motorbike or larger vehicle on one of the oto ferries the price danh sách is very clear và there’s generally no need to lớn book in advance, unless you have a particularly large vehicle. (*Note: you must have your passport and motorbike/oto license plate number when booking tickets for fast boat or car ferry services.)

*

Plenty of space on oto ferries for all kinds of vehicles, but on fast boats space for motorbikes is limited

Departure&Arrival Ports:

The two ports on the mainl& (Ha Tien and Rach Gia) are both busy harbours full of boats. They can be easily reached on foot or by taxi or motorbike. On Phu Quoc, virtually all boats now arrive và depart from Bai Vong port, in the southeast of the isl&, which is a 15-minute drive sầu from Duong Dong, the island’s major town, & most of the popular beaches. The only exception is a couple of sailings each day in and out of Da Chong port, in the remote northeast of Phu Quoc.

*

HA TIEN PORT:There are now at least three different ports in Ha Tien. They are all located on the south side of the To Chau Bridge; the other side of the river from Ha Tien town. The fast boat terminal has been recently refurbished, và now resembles the terminal of a small domestic airport. This is where all Superdong (including the Superdong oto ferry), Phu Quoc Express, và Ngoc Thanh hao ferries arrive sầu và depart. The terminal itself is sparse, clean, & easy to lớn navigate. There are ticket offices inside, a waiting lounge, and several shops, cafes, and local guesthouses around the terminal. Arrival and departure is fairly smooth và efficient, although there’s a bit of a scramble on arrival as the boats are being unloaded, và there are so many ships these days that it gets pretty crowded on the pier.

The Thanh hao Thoi car ferry has its own separate terminal, just a minute downriver of the fast boat pier. The port is very large, spacious, efficient & well-run, with ticket offices, waiting areas, và a coffe & shop. However, it looks as though the Thanh hao Thoi pier will soon be relocated (or at least shared) with a new terminal that’s under construction on reclaimed land just under the To Chau Bridge.

The Binc An car ferry also has its own (gigantic) terminal, on a large swathe of reclaimed lvà which sprawls west of the To Chau Bridge. A huge airplane-style hanger houses ticket offices, shops, cafes, fast food joints, waiting areas, toilets và showers. It’s big & easy lớn navigate. (See my Guide lớn Ha Tien more more information about the town and area.)

*

Ha Tien now has several ports, all of which are located on the opposite side of the river from town

RACH GIA PORT:Currently, all boats khổng lồ Phu Quoc from Rach Gia leave sầu from the city’s main port. Fast boats (Superdong, Phu Quoc Express, Seabus, Ngoc Thanh) go from the main terminal, near the mouth of the canal; car ferries (Tkhô nóng Thoi) go from a new terminal just next door. The port is being expanded to lớn accommodate the huge increase in ships, cargo, & passengers over the last couple of years. But, for now, Rach Gia port is overcrowded and a little bit chaotic at times. There are ticket offices, a waiting area, và a couple of shops in the main building. Things are set to get more modern, efficient, and generally better in the near future.

*

Rach Gia is a busy port with boats jostling for space: it can be slightly chaotic during arrival và departure

BAI VONG PORT (Phu Quoc): A gaping cất cánh on the south-central coast of Phu Quoc, Bai Vong is now the main arrival and departure port for almost all ships (fast boats and oto ferries) khổng lồ và from the islvà. The port spreads along the bay from north khổng lồ south, & there’s still a lot of construction going on, as the port is expanding to lớn meet growing demand. Fast boats (Superdong, Phu Quoc Express, Seabus, Ngoc Thanh) doông chồng at the northern over of the bay, where a long pier stretches out lớn sea to meet the boats. Just south of the fast boat pier is the landing ramp for Binch An car ferries. And right at the southern end of the bay is the Tkhô giòn Thoi car ferry pier.

At the fast boat pier there are ticket offices, a waiting area, local food and drink stalls, & a mini-mart. The Thanh Thoi port also has seats và refreshments. Although Bai Vong port is a bit of a mess at the moment because of construction, dust, và trucks, it’s fairly efficient & easy to use, as long as you know which ferry company you are travelling with. Taxis meet the boats when they arrive, or most ferry operators offer boat-bus bộ combo tickets (at a extra cost of a few dollars) which allow passengers to lớn get on a bus from Bai Vong port into Duong Dong (Phu Quoc’s main town), just a 15-minute drive sầu away.

*

Bai Vong port is on the southeastern coast of Phu Quoc: it’s a busy harbour with multiple piers

DA CHONG PORT (Phu Quoc): Way up on the northeastern shores of Phu Quoc Island, Da Chong port is remote & quiet. Presently, only one or two car ferries (operated by Thanh khô Thoi) use Da Chong port each day. It feels as though sailings to lớn and from Da Chong are gradually being phased out, but there has been a fair bit on work on the harbour in recent years, so perhaps there are plans afoot for this sleepy (và very pleasant) corner of the isl&. There’s very little at all in the immediate vicinity, but the port has a ticket office, cửa hàng, và waiting room. Despite being so far from the island’s major towns and beaches, arriving at Da Chong is very scenic – with the high, jungled ridges rising sharply behind the port. However, it’s best suited if you have your own transportation.

The Boats:

There are essentially two kinds of ships sailing between the mainland và Phu Quoc Island: fast boats and car ferries. Some companies operate both types, others only operate one. In general, all boats are comfortable and clean enough, with toilets and plenty of life jackets và life rafts.

Click a type of ship below to lớn read more about it:

*

FAST BOATS:Fast boats, which are currently operated by Superdong, Phu Quoc Express, Seabus, and Ngoc Thanh khô, are relatively small vessels but very quiông xã. Each fast boat has the capađô thị for between 200-300 passengers and 10-trăng tròn motorbikes. The fast boats operated by Superdong, Seabus, and Ngoc Tkhô hanh are all very similar, long and slender vessels. Seating is on soft, coach-style, reclinable chairs in two rows separated by an aisle. Air-bé is set at a comfortable temperature (but sometimes too cold), và staff & young và polite. Most fast boats now have sầu two levels: an upper & lower deông chồng. There are large TVs which play soap operas, movies, reality shows, or music videos. The volume is quite loud, but you hardly notice it after a while. At the back, there’s a surprising amount of outside dechồng space, with seating on metal benches. However, the decks are closed for departure and arrival. Light refreshments, such as instant noodles, crisps, beer, coffee, & soft drinks, are available on-board at a little bar on the deck: prices are reasonable considering it’s a captive sầu market. There are several toilets on-board, all of which are kept clean. The Phu Quoc Express fast boats, however, are more modern catamarans. On-board it’s all very plush, and there’s even a VIPhường seating area, where you get your own personal TV. Regardless of which ferry operator you’re travelling with, the fast boats are all comfortable, quiông chồng, and smooth ways to lớn sail khổng lồ & from Phu Quoc.*Note:although there are railings around the outside decks, they are quite low và the deông chồng can get slippery from the wash. A sudden swell on the ocean or blast of strong wind or small trip could skết thúc you overboard. Be very careful.

*

Fast boats are small, slender vessels with capathành phố for 200-300 passengers & a dozen or so motorbikes

CAR FERRIES:Car ferries are large, heavy vessels that generally take twice the time as the fast boats. But sailings are far more frequent, tickets are cheaper, và there’s lots of deông chồng space for passengers enjoy, & plenty of room for motorbikes, cars & much larger vehicles, too. Currently, car ferries are operated by Thanh Thoi, Binh An, và Superdong, but Seabus is also phối to lớn join by 2019. Car ferries have sầu capathành phố for nearly 400 passengers, 200 motorbikes, 30 cars, & several coaches and trucks.Seating is on soft, coach-style reclinable chairs across several decks. Some vessels are very smart, but others are starting lớn show signs of wear và tear. Toilets are plenty & fine.There’s usually a decent bar/coffe on-board offering snacks và drinks. The Tkhô giòn Thoi oto ferry operating between Rach Gia and Phu Quoc is a more modern vessel, complete with VIPhường seating area. Personally, I find the oto ferries more exciting than the fast boats – it feels more lượt thích a real voyage, và the spacious decks mean you can really enjoy being outside & at sea.

The car ferries are large hulks that can accommodate dozens of motorbikes, cars, buses & trucks

The Voyage:

Sailing from the mainland Mekong Delta to Phu Quoc Isl& involves crossing a beautiful corner of the Gulf of xứ sở của những nụ cười thân thiện Thái Lan. During the high season months (November-April), the seas are usually calm and the skies clear. But during the low-season (May-October), heavy rains fall and storms can churn up the waves. On any of the routes, it’s an interesting and scenic voyage, taking passengers from the flat, agricultural, & densely populated Mekong Delta, khổng lồ the hilly, forested, tropical shores of Phu Quoc Islvà.

HA TIEN→PHU QUOC:Departing Ha Tien is lovely, especially in the mornings or late afternoons. From the bustling harbourfront, the boat drifts out into lớn the mouth of the Giang Tkhô nóng River, with the town of Ha Tien on the north ngân hàng, và the green, temple-studded To Chau hill on the south ngân hàng. Sliding under the harbour bridge, the boat enters the open sea. The mainland slowly recedes and the sea gets bluer as the fluvial waters are diluted by the ocean. Passing through the green and rugged little archipelago of Hải Tặc (Pirate) Islands, the ship ploughs on towards the purple mass of l& on the horizon: Phu Quoc. Sadly, in recent years, the sea between the mainl& and Phu Quoc has become densely polluted with plastic. Bottles, boxes, wrappers, bags are floating on the surface, bobbing in the ship’s wake for much of the voyage. Even so, as the silhouette of Phu Quoc draws closer, the sun appears to lớn get brighter, the light sharper, & the colours more intense. With Bai Vong port in sight, the ocean becomes calm & placid. The excitement builds as the boat cuts its engine and glides to lớn the pier.

Ha Tien→Phu Quoc is the shorter route và passes through the Hai Tac (‘Pirate’) archipelago

RACH GIA→PHU QUOC:A thriving đô thị in the Mekong Delta, Rach Gia is a busy, slightly chaotic port to depart from. The boats jostle for space at the point where a canal meets the sea. As the ship maneuvers out of port – avoiding the hulls of other vessels by mere millimetres – the engines immediately roar lớn life và, before long, the low-rise sprawl of Rach Gia & its landscaped waterfront promenade are a speông xã on the horizon. Numerous Mekong tributaries and canals muddy the sea for miles, và weed-like water hyacinth grow in clumps on the surface, lượt thích large, green rafts. A scattering of lush, hilly islands provide an exotic backdrop as the boat steams further into lớn open sea. Rach Gia is twice the distance from Phu Quoc than Ha Tien, thus the islvà isn’t visible to the west until halfway through the voyage. When it does appear, Phu Quoc seems small and insignificant. But, as the ship plunges on, the hills of Phu Quoc’s northern tip start to tower above sầu the flat waters of the Gulf of xứ sở của những nụ cười thân thiện Thái Lan, lượt thích the ramparts of a fort from the phối of trò chơi of Thrones. From the dechồng, you can see the weather moving across the island: billowing clouds building up & then dispersing as they unload on the island’s steamy forests. After nearly 3 hours at sea, the ship curves into Bai Vong port, on the gentle southeastern coast of the islvà.
