The best way is by the Ao Nang Princess or sister ship which starts at Ao Nang, picks up off Railay/Ton Sai and goes on to Lanta. Andaman Island Hopping website and a lot of Lanta websites will have details.
If for some reason this ferry is not running you can get a couple of songthaews to the Krabi town pier and pick up a ferry there.
Cheapest way is songthaew into Krabi town, go to Soi 6 and catch one of the (roughly) hourly minibuses onto Lanta via the vehicle punts. These will usually deliver to resorts etc down island. You won't save a heap this way and it is more time consuming, less scenic.
Oh yeah, day trips.
I'm not sure whether the timing of the ferries allows enough time on Lanta to check it out. Gotta be careful too - I heard last year there was only one ferry each way, in the morning, despite what the websites said.
If you got a real early minibus from Soi 6 and a real late one back, it could work. But you would be looking at many hours just getting there and back.
It's possibele one of the travel companies in Ao Nang/Krabi do a Lanta daytrip. This might involve a speedboat (expensive) or a minibus. Maybe Google can help.
tezza, very kind of you.
thank you very much! :)
