On time, efficient, impersonal. Donsak to Samui and back. Lots of controls, like a border post, checking car number, ID, taking mugshot, all this is swift enough, but one hardly feels welcome. Service on board is non-existant. However the ships are well maintained and skippered,...More

It’s better to take a privat car or taxi to go to pier, because you have to wait in Pier for hours. The boat always late at least half hour. We bought speedboat ticket and it was not a speedboat. Total trip from Chaweng to...More

Ferry was on time, wasn't overcrowded and we didn't have any delay. I can't say any bad word about Seatran, everything was just fine...

the seatran comes into Kho Samui and the transition from the boat to an awaiting taxi or to barter for a taxi is easy. There are plenty waiting for you to whisk you off to your destination. The pier is sturdy and clean.
