I booked to go directly to pier in Surat Thani but instead the boat went to Donsak and they put my on bus to the the other pier and didn't inform me at all during checkin.

Ferry left on time, it' a bit old, but still seems fine. They give you stickers to sort you, where they write where you're going/next connection. Bus was waiting for us at the pier, we had to wait for another ferry and then drop some people in town before going to the train station, so we arrived about 30 minutes after estimated arrival. They last went to the airport, don't know how long that took them, but as they state you should calculate at least 4-5 hours before you flight time. There was a couple that originally booked only to town and they could go to the airport for an additional 100baht per person, so that's an option in case you need it.

No airco in the bus to Surat Tahni trainstation. Furthermore, my bag was full of dirt when it came out of the bus.

Crossing deliberately booked from Tapee pier because we would be in a hotel there very close by. Been keen on just this location and time because other reviews have mentioned that sometimes a mini-van has to be driven from this pier to Donsak pier for an hour. Booked: departure from Tapee pier, sailing at 8am. Nowhere in the booking process were we given different times or boarding point. Seemed all well arranged so. After completing the payment, a confirmation via e-mail came quickly. Meeting point was near Tapee pier. But the departure from Donsak. Which we did not want at all and had not been included in the info during the booking. Departure time idd 8am, from Donsak! So departure from Tapee at 7, and an urgent request to be there at least one hour in advance. So 6 am! In short. Not what we wanted. If this had been clearly indicated during the booking process, we certainly would not have opted for this. If you choose this, there is nothing wrong with that, but be transparent when booking. In the end we decided to take a different hotel, 10 minutes away from the Donsak pier so we could just walk there by 8 am and board. In retrospect, we would have been better off doing this crossing entirely without this booking because buying the ferry ticket separately at the counter is much cheaper. But that also makes sense since you also pay for an hour of mini-van transportation. Crossing there with the ferry from Raja nothing to complain about. Older ferry. Nice enclosed seating area with good chairs and air conditioning if you choose. Outside/inside seating also possible. Several vending machines with snacks and drinks on board. Just neat. Back by speed boat from Lomprayah. That is an open and low boat with hard wooden benches that goes back in an hour and a half with a stop at Ko Samui. Nothing in terms of comfort or facilities on board so do go to the toilet before then. So low rating because of the organization by 12goasia and not because of the boat crossing.
