Koh Chang Island Hopping – Speedboats, Wooden Boat, Catamaran – Timetables, Prices

Island hopping between Koh Chang, Koh Kood, Koh Mak and Koh Wai is run by three companies, Bang Bao Boats, Kai Bae Huts Nor Nou Speedboats and Boonsiri Catamaran.

Bang Bao Boats and Kai Bae Huts Nor Nou Speedboats run daily speedboats in each direction, with Bang Bao Boats also offering a slower wooden passenger boat. Boonsiri Catamaran operates a once daily catamaran each way.

These services do not run during the low season from mid May to the beginning of November.

Due to the pandemic, many services are either not running or are running with a reduced timetable. We assume that once International tourism returns and Thailand opens up all areas of the country (Koh Chang is mooted for 1/1/22), then the services will increase.

May to October – Island Hopping between Koh Kood, Koh Mak and Koh Chang

These Koh Chang island hopping boats do not run during the rainy season, so you will have to return to the mainland using the main ferries and then travel along the coast to make the boat connections from Laem Ngop Pier for Koh Mak and from Laem Sok Pier for Koh Kood.

You can use either private or share options.

Share

Due to the pandemic, this service is currently not running.

For the share option, you take a songthaew taxi on Koh Chang to either pier at Ao Sapparot or Centerpoint, then hop in a Trat bound taxi on the other side and ask them to drop you at Laem Ngop Pier for Koh Mak. This mainland taxi leg is 50bt per person from Centerpoint Pier or 300bt minimum charge from Thammachat Pier.

If coming the other way, on arrival at Laem Ngop Pier from Koh Mak, take a taxi to Centerpoint Pier. Ferries are on the hour, 10.00, 11.00 etc to Koh Chang. Songthaew taxis are lined up at the pier on the island side but will only leave when full.
