    Really quick and comfortable Hydrofoil Ferry
    • Very smooth ride almost like being on board s plane. The Beetle is a quick and convenient way to get from Busan South Korea to Fukuoka in Japan. Tickets were relatively expensive (£320) for a family of 4 but less than the cost of flying. On boarding was very easy. We didn't use on board catering but ate in the canteen at the Busan end of the operation and enjoyed the food. Wifi on the ferry was terrible to the point of being non existent. Would definitely use again to travel between Japan and Korea

    Punctual ferry
    • The ferry was on time. All the facilities are well maintained.However, it took me some time to understand how to get connected with the wifi. I didn't use any catering service but I couldn't submit this review without checking that item.

    Busan to Fukuoka.
    • The checking in process was easy. Security checks hassle free. The crossing itself was very good, though we had calm seas (have no idea what ride quality would be like if rough seas). Passport and baggage checks at Fukuoka were efficient. And good information for onward travel at terminal. I was travelling to Hakata station (Shinkensen)and was sold a prepaid ticket for 230 yen for the BRT bus (give ticket to driver when getting off).

    Beetle ferry
    • The company was very quick to reply to reservation requests and efficient when required times were unavailable. We travelled during national holidays in Japan and S Korea and the check in and journey were without problems. There is a good duty free store at Fukuoka but few facilities on board the ferry. Taxes need to be paid on departure and some of these have to be in Japanese yen.
