Need help on Railay Beach to Krabi Airport info ASAP

Hi all,

I'm going to be staying in Railay East and have a 930am flight from Krabi Airport. I read that you have to take a long-tail boat back to Krabi town (45minutes) and then catch a cab (15minutes) to the airport. That means I would need to leave Railay by long boat about 630am to get to the airport to make my flight. Do longtail boats leave that early from Railay? If not, I have to forfeit my reservation and ride into Krabi-town the night before to make my flight that morning. Any suggestions?

Better to spend your last night in Krabi Town. You do not want to risk missing your flight because If the weather is not kind, you would be stuck on Railay.

I would find it easier from Krabi Town or Ao Nang night before as suggested. Then you are wasting your last day by checking out and checking in again. You could arrange a private transfer via the hotel or line up a private longtail while there but you will pay more. Money is king over there.
