Ferry Catamaran, Lomprayah (ลมพระยา), 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.

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.

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.

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.

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!
