Longtails from ao nang to west railay run from around 8am to 6pm. The last leaving railay around 5/5.30pm ( i think).

The journey is 10-15 mins and costs 200baht return. You buy your return tickets at the longtail ticket office in ao nang.

The boats leave when there are a minimum of 6 passengers, so there isn't a timetable as such.

Hope that helps!

you can take a boat from railay at night with a small extra charge per person,the only thing i dont know is how much time you should wait for some more people to get in the boat. as soon as you arrive at Railay you can ask at the little booth on the beach,they can tell you if 2 people are enough for the normal night ticket for sailing or if the charge is diffirent
