Koh Kood transfers by either private car or private minibus are probably the most convenient way to get to Laem Sok Pier, the departure point for all mainland boats going to Koh Kood.

Koh Kood Transfers to Laem Sok Pier by Private Car or Minibus – Travel Time
From Bangkok, travel time is around 5 hours with a stop for diesel, coffee and a snack along the way. Collection time is up to you but we recommend early starts at 06.30am, 07.00am and 08.00am to make the boat connections at 12.30pm Koh Kood Princess, 13.00 Koh Kut Express and the final departure of the day, Boonsiri catamaran at 14.20.
For those not in a hurry or arriving too late into Suvarnbhumi Airport to make the last boat at 14.20, we would suggest door to door Koh Kood transfers into Trat.
Here, you can stay a night in one of the many guesthouses and then pick up the free shuttle taxi offered by all the boat companies down to the pier on the following morning. This free services simply needs confirming with your guesthouse on arrival, journey time of about 45 minutes.

Payment for private transfers is with an initial deposit invoice via PayPal (with processing charges) and then the balance due paid in THB cash only on the day of travel.
