Getting to Ko Lanta from Khao Lak


I was hoping that somebody could give me some advice on this, I've read about the car ferries and according to a car firm I've been told the journey could take around 5-6 hours with approx 4 being spent on a ferry from Phuket, something which I don't really relish.

I've seen that speedboat transfers are offered from Krabi Town, however, it appears that the transfer for this goes from Krabi airport so my question is, does anybody know if you can just turn up at the speedboat pier and buy a ticket to go on or do you have to book a transfer from Krabi airport too?

The most convenient would be by taxi. It takes about 4-5 hours subject to the waiting time for the two Lanta ferries. I think, you can haggle for a fare of about 4-5000 Baht. The drive is very scenic, first through the mountains from Khao Lak to Phang Nga and from there up to Krabi you have stunning limestone karsts.
