URGENT - earliest ferry from Koh Tao to Koh Samui (or alternative/private arrangements)

Posted by saxomophone on 16/4/2010 at 11:53


I have booked a flight from Koh Samui to Bangkok leaving Koh Samui at 12:45PM on a Sunday afternoon.

Bangkok Airways requires that passengers check in no later than 1 hr 15 mins prior to departure.

However, we will be coming from Koh Tao that morning back to Koh Samui by ferry. The earliest ferry I can find gets leaves Koh tao at 9:30am and arrives at Koh Samui (in theory) at 11:20am. This would leave us 25 mins to get to the airport from the pier to check in for our flight.

Is anyone aware of an earlier ferry, or has any information on private charters (times, prices, availability) to get from Koh Tao to Samui.

It may be that we have to leave Koh Tao a day earlier and stay on Koh Samui on our final night. I'd really prefer not to though!

Thanks in advance.

Does anyone know of an earlier

That's the earliest boat from Ko Tao to Ko Samui.

Stay the last night on Samui, just grab a room near Big Buddha then you're right by the airport and can take it easy.
