Many choices. Expect to pay THB 2500 - 3500 depending on number of passengers and type of transport.

Ferry (a boat) is also a good way to travel Phuket-Ao Nang. It´s about 650THB/person and it´s even faster. Only about 2 hours. I think that minibus will take some 3-4 hours. http://www.phuketferry.com/

You're not any faster by ferry compared with a minibus. 2 hours is from port to port only. They pick you up at the hotel about 2 hours prior to departure and from Patong it takes about 45 minutes to the pier. Further, please take into account these ferry boats are notoriously overloaded to a dangerous level. You put your life at risk !

For the price 3000-4000 THB it will be private transfer. No others tourists.

We made it in 2.5 hours from our hotel in Kata to other hotel in Ao Nang. Really fast and safety.

Use krabishuttle.com for a great service. As others have said it takes about 2.5 hrs door to door and includes a short break on the way. Have used this company several times and will do so again in future.

Phuket shuttle or Krabi shuttle. You book online and confirm instantly. You pay the driver. They are excellent.

We asked the hotell in Aonang to pick us up and we thought that was a good choice. No other turists, aircon, a driver who knows where to go and it took aprox 2 h. Smooth and not More expensive than other transportation.
