Q. I fly into Samui at 14:00pm. How can I get to Koh Tao that same day?
The two main ferry companies operating from Koh Samui to Koh Tao are the Seatran Discovery and the Lomprayah Catamaran.
You can see timetable information and book tickets online via their websites:
The ferry crossing usually takes about 2 hours, depending on the weather.
The Seatrain ferry normally departs from the Bangrak pier, very close to Samui airport. Their last departure is at ~13:30pm, so reaching Koh Tao around 15:30pm.
Lomprayah usually operate three service per day, with the last one departing around 16:45pm.
Lomprayah operate from piers in Mae Naam and Nathon, which are a taxi ride from the airport (or you can arrange a transfer with the ferry company).
It’s worth noting that the ferry schedules are subject to change, with weather, boat maintenance etc. So it’s worth organize your ferry tickets and flights well in advance.
