During the period around the time of the monthly Full Moon Party on Koh Phangan we recommend booking a tickets either online or at the ferry pier at least a week in advance of the day of travel during the Full Moon Party period.

Option 1: Seatran Discovery

Seatran Discovery ferries are fast and modern. There is seating on two levels and an outside side deck. Inside there is a small shop selling drinks and snacks. On this service passengers must carry their own luggage on and off the ferry. Some passenger prefer to carry their own luggage for peace of mind, others – particularly those with small children – will find this difficult.

Option 2: Lomprayah High Speed Ferry

The larger Lomprayah boats have the best sundecks of any of the boats travelling from Koh Tao to Koh Phangan. The 15.00 departure can get very busy because it picks up the return day trippers to Koh Nangyuan for the journey back to Koh Samui, where the boat stops after Koh Phangan. Booking is advisable. Staff on the Lomprayah ferry help passengers load and unload their baggage.
