Seatran Ferry to Thong Sala Pier
Seatran is the ferry service that leaves from Big Buddha pier in Bangrak from the north east of Koh Samui. This pier is located near the airport and is close to Chaweng. The travel time with Seatran is only half an hour, and their boats include sundecks, air-conditioned cabins, open areas, and ample seating, along with toilet facilities and a shop with affordable foods and snacks.
Lomprayah Catamaran Ferry to Thong Sala Pier
The Lomprayah Catamaran ferry takes a mere twenty minutes to go from Koh Samui to Koh Phangan. It leaves from the pier in Maenam, and is located in the middle of Koh Samui’s northern coastline. It is a professionally operated service with well-maintained boats that are air-conditioned, have plenty of seating, and include toilet facilities as well as a snack shop.
Haad Rin Queen Passenger Ferry to Haad Rin Pier
The Haad Rin Queen service departs from the Sunset pier, which is at the north east of Koh Samui; it is at a short distance from the Bid Buddha pier, so its location is ideal, given that it is close to both the airport and Chaweng. It goes to a different pier and is popular among tourists, travellers, and backpackers who want to head to the Full Moon Party. Although their boat is slow and takes around an hour to get to the beach, their tickets are cheap and make up for the speed. This service directly takes you to the beach so you won’t need Songthaews or taxis.
Private Speed Boats from Koh Samui to Koh Phangan
You can also charter an affordable speedboat to go to Koh Phangan, as they are ideal for larger groups. Koh Phangan has only two ferry piers so by chartering a speedboat your schedule becomes really flexible. You can leave from Koh Samui at any time you please instead of following a schedule. When you get to the beach, you will be dropped at the beachfront so no taxi or other mode of commute will be required. You can find more about this, including our rates, on our private charter page for Koh Phangan.
