Koh Phangan to Railay Destination Reviews

The journey was fine, but the operator wasted a lot of time towards the end. We got to the Krabi bus stop around 16:00, so should've been able to get to Railay before 17:00. Instead we had to wait for an hour just to get a minibus to the pier where we could get the boat to Railay. There were others who were going to Ao Nang and Phi Phi who got minibuses straight away. When we finally got to the pier at 17:15 we were told we had to wait until a scheduled boat would leave at 18:30 for the ten minute trip to Railay, or we could pay them more money for them to take us earlier (it was around 17:30 at this point). This seemed a bit scammy. Luckily around 18:00 the boat decided to leave because a lot of locals were ready to go, but this left a sour taste for 12go, as we shouldn't have to wait for a scheduled trip, or be asked to pay more since we've already paid for the trip in advanced.
