Hi, I was wondering if anyone has information about a fast boat from Phu Quoc to Ha Tien. I am looking for scheduled departure times, where the boat departs from, how much for a ticket, average travel time, etc. we are hoping to get to Kep from the border. Thanks!!!

Currently there are fast boats from Phu Quoc to Ha Tien at 08.00 and 13.00.Tickets cost between 215,000VND and 260,000VND depending on the boat company.The crossing takes about 90 minutes,at this time of year the weather is generally good,so the sea is calm,and the crossing uneventful.It's only 15 minutes to the border from the boat dock-a moto should be 60,000VND max to the border,and from the border to Kep is only 30km,so it takes less than an hour.There are tourist minibuses leaving Ha Tien every day at around 13.00,or you can just take a moto all the way from the dock,to the border,and through to Kep-this should cost no more than 10/12 USD,depending on your negotiating skills.It's difficult to find moto drivers who can speak any English,there are a few that I know and use if I need to do this journey.Don't pay until you arrive in Kep,as sometimes the moto drivers cannot go into Cambodia,so they take you to the border and hand you over to another driver in Cambodia,and then there's confusion about how much is to be paid to each driver.
