Boats from Koh Chang to Koh Wai or Koh Mak in August??

I know that in August the weather won't be so good but unfortunately my vacations are at the end of august.

Im trying to find information about the boats from Koh Chang to Koh Wai and Koh Mak. But I didnt find any. In some web sites I have read:

"During the rainy season from May to October, visitors are not allowed to the islands south of Ko Chang; for example, Ko Kut, Ko Mak, Ko wai, and Ko Kham"

Is it true?

I have to get to mainland to get a ferry to Koh Mak??

thanks in advance for any advice

of course visitors are allowed to go to other islands. Problem is that there are no boats from Koh Chang to the other islands, so if you want to go to Koh Mak or Koh Kood you have to go from the mainland. Speedboats to Koh Mak go from Laem Ngop, not far from the ferries to Koh Chang. speedboats to Koh Kood go from Laem Sok, which is about 30km from the Koh Chang ferries.

if the sea is too rough expect speedboats to be cancelled. So best to just see what the weather is like when you are here.

You can make it directly to the mentioned islands, however it's not simply planned. Go to the end of the pier in Bang Bao and check with the ladies at the counter of that agency. Expect to pay up to 1000 Baht in addition for extra gasoline. Be prepared not to go that day but the next.
