Bad wheather, but good boat and captain! Unfortunately whithout being pre-informed there is a one hour waiting on Koh Phangan in this itenary. To improve the journey, they could provide the waiting area outside, with some food/ coffee shop. And don’t think you will be able to but yourself some breakfast in the early morning before departure on the pier in Koh Tao: big hustle and long waiting line to get to the cashier to reconfirm your already bought ticket. But othertwise good trip.

Very intransparent that this was a combined transfer of boat and Bus and the Bus stopped far from the meeting point where an incredibly impolite man received all travellers

ferry High Speed Ferry, Seatran Discovery (ซีทราน), Jul 24, 2019
There is only a small check-in office left directly on the pier, the Seatran ferry looked quite small and old too. But we were lucky and Seatran gave us tickets for Lomprayah High Speed Catamaran. The Lomprayah transfer is very well organized and the boat is really fast. There was a boat change on Koh Phangan - we didn't know this but everything went well. When arriving at Surat Thani, several busses from Lomprayah waited already and the transfer to the airport worked very good as well. So Seatran receives my four stars for booking us to Lomprayah ;) Don't know how their ferries are.
