Ferries vary in size from smaller high-speed ferry services, suitable for 200 people, to larger vehicle ferries; just remember: the larger the ferry, the smoother the crossing. All the ferries leave Suratthani, on the Thai mainland, from Donsak Pier and will head to one of four different piers on Koh Samui. If you’re traveling in peak season you can expect to find ferries packed full of passengers, so it’s definitely a good idea to book your tickets in advance to avoid a time consuming wait.

There are usually two passenger decks that feature basic food and drink kiosks, television areas and public bathrooms.
