What do you think? Is there any chance that someone could pay for this kind of service if the person knows the itinerary?

Trip to Koh Lip
I would say it was a perfect transfer! We did it with my wife and 9 month old baby. We had 1pcs luggage around 15kg, 2 back packs, a plastic bag with our winter clothes from Europe and a baby stroller. We can have all in our hands when moving with baby.
Yes the driver was not fluent in English. But what you could expect for paying minimum for a trip? If you would bought this transfer with a privat driver at the hotel for 2500 baths then you could expect small things perfect.
In general. We paid 950 from Ao Nang to Koh Lipe. We wanted later pickup not at 6 in the morning. So we had at 11. If it is ok for you to have 6a.m. pick up, I would recommend to by a transfer at any tourist trips selling office in Ao Nang, because you could bargain and get a transfer for 850 instead of 950. For later pickup at the street the cheapest price what you could get is 1150. Standard I think 1250 Baths.
Now about the trip itself. Why I gave 4 stars review not 5. As I told it was almost perfect. Almost perfect because after we left Ao Nang, and passed already over Krabi, the driver got a call that he didn’t picked up two people in Ao Nang. So we got back and spend for that extra 50min. Otherwise we would spend that extra 50min at a pier. Because tour companies have around 2hours reserve and it is normal. People what we forgot bought a tour a day before (as we did it too). So it was a communication mistake in between different companies.
All was perfect. Buy a trip online with assurance that all will be as perfect as possible. And if you are ok for 6a.m. pick up at the hotel buy it on the street and save 100 baths.
Hmm and what concerns travel with an 9 month baby. We recommend to keep it not in hands but in a baby carrier. Our little daughter Liepa slept almost all the time. A speed boat trip what we were a little bit afraid at the beginning was completely normal. Baby slept all the time and it was really easy travel. Yes of course it was super load, bumpy and smell gasoline! But guys it is completely normal it should be like that when you take such kind of boat for such price!
And one small thing what I almost forgot. When you arrive to Koh Lipe you will be board on a floating pier around 50meters away from the shore. You will pay 50baths per person for a long tail bought transfer as well as 200 national park entrance fee. As a sea was not very calm it was a little bit challenging to enter the long tail boat from a floating pier with a baby in a baby carriage.
So enjoy! And don’t afraid! :)
