Ferry Times from Koh Phangan to Surat Thani City


There is a single ferry a day direct to the centre of Surat Thani City. This ferry completes the last part of the journey on the Tapee River to reach Bandon Pier in Surat Thani City. The service is simply known as the ‘Night Boat’. The Night Boat is a large wooden Thai fishing vessel converted to include a large room with mattresses, once of which will be allocated to each passenger. This is an uncomfortable boat which takes 7 hours to reach its destination. This boat is most popular with people wanting to arrive in Surat Thani town for an early start to an onward journey, such as the trip from Surat Thani to Ranong for ‘visa runs’ to the border with Burma. Surat Thani Night Boat Pier is within walking distance of the Talad Mai Road where many of the minivans depart and the main travel agencies are based.
