Boat trips can be organised from virtually any beach on Ko Tao, through any travel agency or most hotel receptions.
Trips tend to leave around 10:00 and return by 16:00. Costs vary, with a longtail typically charging around 550B per person, and a big boat around 650B. The advantage of the latter is more shade, but the longtails tend to visit more beaches. If you are hiring a whole longtail, be sure to specify exactly which beaches you want to visit before leaving. These trips typically include hotel pickup and lunch. If you want to make your own trip, taxi boats are easily organised too. Expect to pay 200-300B from Haad Sairee to Ko Nang Yuan. Your own longtail around the island will cost you 2,000B so if there are a few of you this can be best and then you can choose where you go too.
