Will I make the 8am ferry to Koh Phangan?


We are booked on the 6am Bangkok airways to Koh Samui and we arrive in Koh Samui at 7am. I am hoping it might be possible to get the first ferry to Koh Phangan at 8am - is this possible if we get a taxi and buy tickets at the pier? It looks like otherwise we have to wait for the 11.30 ferry to Thong sala. Does anyone now if their any other alternatives or whether they think its possible to catch that early ferry?

thanks for any advice!!

You may be able to make the 08.00 Seatran ferry to Koh Phangan. I believe its departure point is close to the airport. Failing that you could take the 10.30 Haad Rin Queen, a smaller boat to Haad Rin on the south of the island.

There's also the Lomprayah at 8am from Maenam, if you land on time, grab your luggage quickly and get in a taxi you could probably make either of the 8am ferries.
