School Boat Service

Shrewsbury International School is located around 1.5km south of Sathorn Pier, Bangkok’s connection hub for passenger boat services, and an interchange point for the BTS Skytrain System (Saphan Taksin Station).

A shuttle boat service, operated by the Chatrium Riverside Hotel, provides a free connection between Sathorn pier and the school and may be used by all Shrewsbury families, staff and visitors. The boat operates every 15 minutes at peak times, and every 20 or 30 minutes in the middle of the day and in the evening. For the full schedule, please click the link below.

Around one quarter of Shrewsbury students arrive at school by boat every day, and it is a fantastic facility for more Senior students who travel independently.

Life Jackets

All students, staff and parents using the school boat service during core operating hours are expected to wear a life jacket whilst on the school boat. Students who normally travel by the shuttle boat are required have their own life jacket marked with their own name, as part of the school uniform. The school shop stocks inflatable life jackets, which are lightweight and portable. The School Shop will also stock replacement inflation canisters (which can be used once only) and cartridge firing mechanisms (which should be replaced according to the expiry date printed on the firing cartridge).
