Koh Chang Island Hopping – Bang Bao Boats

Bang Bao Boats leave from Bang Bao on Koh Chang, with 2 daily speedboats and a wooden boat.

In journey order, the speedboat stops at your resort pier on Koh Wai and then the pier at Koh Mak Resort on Ao Suan Yai Beach, north west coast on Koh Mak. At Koh Kood, it drops you direct at your resort pier if possible or if not, you get out at Mark House, Klong Chao Beach.

bang-bao-boats-slow-boat-koh-chang-island-hopping The wooden passenger ferry boat run by Bang Bao Boats, slower and cheaper, goes to Koh Wai and Kok Mak as standard. It does not go all the way to Koh Kood, as it would take far too long.

Instead, if using this as a budget service to Koh Kood, you must get out at Koh Mak, again the pier at Koh Mak Resort and wait for the 2nd speedboat of the day to come through from Koh Chang 2 hours later. The ticket price is still charged as if making the whole journey by the cheaper boat. If coming from Koh Kood, you can do this in reverse, using the speedboat to Koh Mak, waiting at the pier for 2 hours and then taking the slow ferry boat via Koh Wai back to Koh Chang.

On Koh Chang, there is a free transfer service from your resort to Bang Bao or the reverse if arriving. On Koh Mak, your resort normally picks you up. On Koh Kood, again your resort will pick you up if not arriving direct. In both cases, you just let them know times and the boat company.

Koh Chang Island Hopping – May to October

These Koh Chang island hopping boats do not run during the rainy season, so you will have to return to the mainland to pick up the direct boats from there at Laem Sok Pier for Koh Kood and Laem Ngop Pier for Koh Mak.

You will need a private transfer to reach Laem Sok Pier, it being 40km away from the Koh Chang Piers.

For Koh Mak, it’s cheapest and very easy to take a songthaew taxi on Koh Chang to the pier, then hop in a Trat bound taxi on the other side and ask them to drop you at Laem Ngop Pier. This mainland taxi leg should be around 40bt per person, unless the taxi driver calls it as charter.

Koh Chang Island Hopping – From Salak Phet area

If staying on the Koh Chang East Coast, there is no Koh Chang island hopping service out to the islands unless you rent a private boat at 5,000bt upwards. Tickets you may see advertised near to Salak Phet for Koh Wai, Koh Mak and Koh Kood will, in fact, take you on a taxi back to White Sand Beach to join the free morning transfer that the boats operate to Bang Bao or Kai Bae respectively.
