Ferries from Ranong?

Posted by powderskierman on 31/1/2010 at 09:46

I was wondering if it is possible to take ferries from Ranong all the way to Tarutao with out going to the mainland. I'm going to be there for 7 weeks starting in March. Any suggestions on itinerary would be great. I basically want to island hop and mix in some laid back and some fun. Snorkeling is high on the list and a padi course. Is it worth me bringing my fly rod?
Thanks in advance.

No chance. You can island hop from Phuket to Tarutao using combination of normal ferries and Tigerline/Lanta to Trang-island daytrip boats/speedboats - but north of Phuket it's a case of individual ferries and/or speedboats out to little Chang, Phayam, Surins, Similans. Sometimes a dive-boat may be doing a trip from Phayam to Surins and take you along, but that is a matter of lucky timing.
