The normal service using the Lomprayah High Speed Ferry Company’s fleet of large catamaran ferries has been temporarily suspended due to a drop a passenger numbers during the covid-19 pandemic. Passengers are currently being transported in large shared speed boats. These shared speed boats have seating for passengers in the rear, a toilet in centre of the boat, and a luggage area in the front. Luggage is placed on the speed boat by Lomprayah staff who also help passengers into the rear of the speed boat.

The journey from Koh Samui to Chumphon has two stages. The first stage, by speed boat, takes 3 hours 45 hours. The speed boat travels via three islands on route to Chumphon: Koh Phangan, Koh Nang Yuan and Koh Tao. The speed boat stops at each island for around 10 minutes to allow passengers to disembark and new passenger board the boat. A lot of the passengers travelling from Koh Samui will be going no further than Koh Phangan and Koh Tao, so if the boat seems crowded at the time you leave Koh Samui it will empty out after Koh Tao making the second half of the sea crossing a lot more comfortable.
