Private Ferry from Koh Samui to Koh Tao

Hello,

I need some information about companies/private ferry's to get from Koh Samui to Koh Tao. My flight was changed and I now arrive on Samui at 5 in the evening. This means that I can no longer make the normal ferries to Koh Tao. However, I would like to avoid spending the night on Samui and find a way there that same night. I know that anything private will be more expensive and so I am wondering if anyone knows anything affordable, or at least not completely outrageous.

Any help, as fast as possible, would be greatly appreciated as my flight gets in this Sunday evening.

Thanks much!

Forget it, there's no such thing as a budget speedboat that goes to Koh Tao from Samui, especially at that time of night. You will be looking at anything from 25,000 to 35,000B, that's a lot of money and would see you staying in a very nice hotel on Samui for the night with plenty of change left over and is probably more than your airfare that you paid to get to Thailand.

better to stay on Samui the night and get a Lomprayah Ferry from Maenam at 8am in the morning.

Ok, Under most circumstances I would be ok with staying the night and going the next day. However the reason i'm in a bit of a rush is i'm meeting up for a family vacation and don't have that many days to begin with. I have also already booked my place in Koh Tao, so if I stayed in Samui I would have to pay for an extra place.

Would something around 25,000 - 35,000 be for the whole boat or per person? I looked at the website but could not tell.

Thanks much for your help.

It's for the whole boat, but you may find that they don't want to go out that late at night to KT. Do you really want to pay around US $1000 for a boat ride, seriously that seems crazy to me. It would be cheaper to change your flight!

Hi

I agree with Cassnu. You need to look at changing your flight, it will be much more cost effective.

Safe and happy travels

It's not the privacy it's the the gas mate! That's why it's so darn expensive getting here privately and why hardly any one are doing it...
