About Speed Boat Transfers
The Full Moon Party held on Haad Rin beach in Koh Phangan in Thailand is famous all over the world. It draws up to 30,000 people every full moon.
With such massive number of people heading to Koh Phangan for every full moon party, Koh Samui has various transfer services to transport people to the Haad Rin beach, but you might be wondering which of them is the best. The best one is, without a doubt, the speedboat; it only takes twenty-five minutes to get to the beach from Koh Samui.
The ferry services take you to Thong Sala, but the speedboats take you directly to the Haad Rin beach where the full moon party is held, which means that once you get there, you can start partying right away, instead of getting taxis from the pier in Koh Phangan and finding your way to the beach. The total cost of getting to the beach by either means is pretty much the same, but you save an hour approximately if you take the speedboat. Speedboats are also more convenient as they leave more frequently, about every hour, as compared to ferry services.
Travelling to the full moon party via a speedboat is very safe as well, as it is regulated by the Marine Police on both ends; they make sure that the boats follow all the safety protocols and do not overload with passengers.
Our team only includes sailors and staff who take the job seriously. They will ensure that you get to the Haad Rin beach for the party and back, safe and sound, so the only thing you will have to do is have a blast at the party. Please note that everyone will be required to wear a life jacket; seasickness medications will be available before departure (free of cost).
What you can expect at the Full Moon Party?
The Full Moon Party is a tradition that began in the mid 1980s, when a group of tourists arranged a get together with their friends to enjoy the beautiful spectacle. As the years passed, the number of people grew and now about 10,000 to 30,000 people visit the beach every full moon to celebrate.
The part actually starts at sunset, when revelers fill the one-kilometer beach, wearing swimsuits, full moon vests, as well as fluorescent body paint. The Haad Rin beach is also known as the Sunrise Beach, and it offers something to everyone. It is filled with open-air clubs and bars that play different types of music, alcohol bucket vendors, stalls of food, and a lot more. The party goes on until sunrise when you get to witness the beautiful spectacle that has become the beach’s namesake.
There is a lot to see in Koh Phangan as the locals entertain everyone with fire eating, juggling acts, and a permanent fixture that is the 30 feet tall, “Full Moon Party Haad Rin Koh Phangan” sign that is set alight during every full moon party. There will be a lot to eat and drink as the bars also serve barbecues, and there will be a lot of street food as well to keep you energized and fresh with party cocktails, buckets, and everything else.
The odds of your travel to Thailand are probably to be a part of the legendary Full Moon Party. Koh Samui is very busy during this time so it is better to plan ahead and make your that you, your friends, or your group, is able to get to Haad Rin beach quickly and safely.
You can do that by booking a speedboat with us so you can simply enjoy later. All you will then have to do is pick up an alcohol bucket, get body paint and glow sticks, and get the party started.
How Full Moon Party Speed Boat Transfers Work
Speedboats operate several times an hour, departing from 17:00 until 00:00.
– Hotel transfers are between 90 minutes prior to departure time. Please ensure you are waiting in your hotel lobby during this time.
– Bookings are made for hourly departure intervals, e.g. booking 18:00 is an 18:00-19:00 departure time with a 17:00-17:30 hotel pick up time.
– During peak times (19:00-22:00), due to passenger numbers and demands placed on hotel transfers, expect a waiting time of up to an hour at the pier before departure.
– Return journeys back to Koh Samui operate between 01:00-07:00. Due to the nature of the evening, there is no booking return times due to the unreliability of passengers, and is operated on a queue basis.
– During peak times (03:00-06:00) there can be waits of up to two hours for the return boat due to heavy demand placed on a limited number of speed boats – Please respect the boat staff during this time.
