Why Crab Shuttle is special ?
The Crab shuttle organises daily transport between Kampot and Kep.
The Crab shuttle goes between Kampot and Kep every day. Each day the boat stays for 4 hour in Kep and guests can explore Kep by themselves.
The Crab Shuttle provides daily boat trips between Kampot & Kep. The boat leaves 9.30 am and arrives in Kep about 2 hours later. In Kep the guests have 4 hours to spend at their own leisure. In the afternoon (3.30 pm) the guests return to Kampot and on the return trip guests can enjoy a swim, see the sunset and meet the fishing fleet that sails out around 5pm.
What to explore at Crab Shuttle?
Avoid the dusty roads and crazy traffic with a relaxing day-trip to Kep via the sea aboard a safe and reliable converted traditional fishing-boat.
Enjoy the fresh ocean air and beautiful views to the shoreline before spending a leisurely self-guided afternoon in Kep exploring the national-park, sitting down to a feast of fresh crab at the famous crab-shacks, or just simply lazing on the white-sand beach.

Tips for you
I had been thinking about staying in Kep but I found a great restaurant that I wanted to go back to and I had a decent hostel with pool for a cheap price, so I didn't want to leave Kampot. I saw the shuttle advertised in a tour office and figured that was a great way to spend the day since I could visit Kep and take a boat ride for not that much more than a bus trip. I found the boat easy enough on the Kampot side and was glad that they made the trip with just 2 passengers (as a solo traveller I'm getting used to things I want to do being cancelled because of not enough people). The ride from Kampot to Kep is smooth and relaxing, though the dock that you arrive at in Kep is a bit far from the market and the beach. I shard a tuktuk with the other passenger to the area by the market and the hotels and walked back from there, stopping across from the beach for a drink. Unless you're a bit crazy and cheap, like me, I advise taking a tuktuk back to the dock from since it was further away than I thought. The ride back was a bit choppy, but I really enjoy the the water splash back at me and watching the tiny fish jump out of the water.
