Ferries to Samui and Koh Phan Ngan - ferry timetable
Ferries are the most popular means of reaching Samui, and the only way to get to Koh Phan Ngan and Koh Tao. By taking the train or bus to Surat Thani you then have the option of almost hourly ferry services to Samui, and a few times a day to Koh Phan Ngan and Koh Tao from several piers nearby. There is also the option to catch a twice daily fast catamaran from Chumpon, halfway down the coast from Bangkok, which is the quickest way to reach Koh Tao.

Don Sak is the busiest and closest mainland pier to Samui, there is also Ao Ban Don and Tha Thong. In reality traqvel agents in Bangkok and elsewhere will arrange a combined ticket including transfers, meet and greet personal and the ferry, with lots of waiting around. The Ferry ride to Samui takes 2.5 hours (longer on the night ferry), and arrives at Na thon, before continuing onto Koh Phan Ngan. There are also direct ferries to Koh Phan Ngan. An hourly ferry also connects Big Buddha beach on Samui with Haad Rin on Koh Phan Ngan

Itís easier to make enquiries with local travel agents in Surat Thani or on Samui about ferry journeys. They will have up-to-date information (during the high season extra sailings are added) and will arrange a transfer for you to the terminal. Planning it yourself can be tricky, as timings are never absolute in Thailand. Invariably you set out in the morning, thereís some waiting around and you arrive at your destination at about midday, donít try to be more efficient.
