1.in PHuket-does not matter-the boats have a fixed price-and if you book via any of the 1000s of agents you see everywhere, transport to quay is included. There are no best or better ones-all are the same.
2.Phiphi is so small, that you can walk anywhere-and its a real island, so there are no real roads. To some beaches you can only go by chartered boat-they will find you, there is no need to search at all.
3.depends what you are used to and what you call cheap or expensive, but for THAI standard both -Phuket and Phi-x2, are about the most expensive places to stay and go around.

Um, I beg to differ with the cap'n - I have found it pays to shop around for Phi Phi transfers in Phuket . The best deals are often at one of the many small streetside travel kioks - but the cost varies.
Travel costs at most hotel travel desks are usually higher - I often get the best deal outside and then ask the travel desk if they can match it. Often they can.
One accommodation travel desk that consistently has given me lowest price without being asked to match outside prices is Phuket Backpackers' in Phuket town - a squeaky-clean joint with dorms and double rooms which is an excellent base right of the aircraft.
One thing for sure - prices at the ticket counter at the quay are way higher. I couldn't make Phuket Backpackers' or any outside kiosk last trip and was shocked at the pier price. A guy and his girl who came across from Patong said his price was 100 each more than quoted back at the beach. And he hadn't got the free transport to the pier thrown in.
Oh yeah, October weather. I'm a weather nerd - this is my usual reply for October:
thank's for your report about a wheather.it's so help
