Take the earliest possible ferry from Ko Tao to Chumphon, then switch to a minibus or bus to Khuraburi (most buses heading to Takua Pa / Khao Lak / Phuket etc. should be able to drop you in Khuraburi). When you get to the ferry pier in Chumphon, tell your transport driver that you want to go to Khuraburi (or Phang Nga) and they'll take you to the right place to catch a bus. Alternately you could take a minibus to Ranong and transfer there to a Khuraburi-bound minibus.

Once in Khuraburi, you should check in at a travel office to arrange a longtail boat to Ko Phra Thong . It's low season over there so you might have to do a private longtail -- the people in Khuraburi should be able to help. There's info for some travel offices here: https://www.travelfish.org/transport/thailand/southern_thailand/phang_nga/khuraburi/all

You'll want someone in Khuraburi (or yourself) to call your bungalow place of choice on Ko Phra Thong so they can pick you up when you arrive. It's low season there so all places may not be open. Also there's a good chance you'll get stuck spending a night in Khuraburi.
