Surat Thani to Koh Tao destination reviews

ferry Catamaran, Lomprayah, Jan 13, 2020
There are two stops on the way (Ko Samui and Ko Phangan, where you actually switch boats and have to stand in a queue again). This makes it a very long and tiresome trip and we arrived on Koh Tao approximately an hour late. Would definitely recommend going from Chumphon instead. The see was rough with big waves and we did not receive puke bags (which would have been handy). On December 29 the boat was 95%+ full. The airconditiong on the lowest level of the bigger boat (Tapee to Phangan) was old fashioned, where few people sitting under the pipes were very cold.

Overall satisfy.

Very pleasant workers but the hour wait at koh Pha-ngan was not mentioned when booking our trip from surathani to koh Tao. It was also TERRIFYING water conditions the day we took the transportation... staff were very much on top of provided puke bags but perhaps ferries should just be cancelled. It was very much a risk for our boat to flip and sink. Safety and lives should be put first.
ferry Catamaran, Lomprayah, Dec 6, 2019
The information was not clear. We were sitting on the roof deck, nobody told us we had to change boat. So we had to run for our luggage and the other boat. The 2nd trip was terrible, heavy waves and the motor stopped for about 10 minutes or so Was a night boat, so it was dark and a bit terifaying.

The boat was terrible and everyone was throwing up into Little pink bags. It felt like a game show where the last person who doesn’t throw up wins. The crew was wonderful for helping all of the passengers but there’s got to be another way.....it was all very unhealthy.

Everything was just OK. Arrived 30 minutes late. A more direct route would be nice as it was 9 hours from the airport.

Pleasant trip, however, sharing more trip info upfront would be appreciated . We travel from Surat Thani to Koh Tao. Only at departure port we learned that a boat change at Koh Phe Ngan was needed and we had to wait for an hour. This is not mentioned on the booking site.

The people from Lomprayah were very unfriendly but the itinerary itself was Well regulated
ferry Catamaran, Lomprayah, Sep 7, 2019
Well organised, clear instructions when changing between modes of transport. Helpful, efficient and mostly very friendly staff( staff who were not as friendly were still very helpful, not rude, and busy hearding a LOT of us clueless tourists). Train was late coming in from Bangkok, so the coach to the catamaran was delayed half an hour to accommodate this. Very pleased, would recommend.
ferry Catamaran, Lomprayah, Aug 27, 2019
Perfectly on schedule and well organiced. The only flaw; if its raining they should find a place inside for babies and little kids... I saw many very scared left outside under the rain!

On time and easy, keep up the good work!
ferry Catamaran, Lomprayah, Aug 17, 2019
The boat trip feels like mass transportation... The best thing to do...go to 1e deck and take the VIP seat. It will cost you 100 baht... But it's quiet and relax
