Ferry from Koh Samui to Koh Phangan questions

I have never been to either island but am going to be there for a couple weeks this May. I have a couple questions about the ferry.

1. Where does the ferry/boat from Koh Samui to Koh Phangan leave from? Google maps shows it leaving from the west side of the Samui (Ang Thong). I was wanting to have a couple days in Koh Phangan, but wasn't sure about where the ferry leaves from.

2. Is there a place online where I can check the depart/arriving times?

There are a number of different ferries and they all leave from different places. The fastest one being the Lomprayah leaves from Maenam Pier and takes 30 minutes. For the return journey you can either return to Maenam at 11.00 or 16.20 or to Nathon (Samui's main town on the west side) at 7.15 or 12 noon.


There are also ferries run by Raja (car ferry from Nathon) and Seatran Discovery from Bang Rak Pier, Haad Rin Queen from Big Buddha, and Thong Nai Pan Express from Maenam.
