Transfers to koh phangan

I'm staying at the santhiya resort and spa on koh phangan my flight gets in at 16.40 ko samui what are my options of getting across I don't want to spend the night on ko samui I've read there is a 5.30pm and 6.30 pm boats over?.. But where do I go for these?

Would like to know what is the closet pier that I can get to that would take me over? Does it take long to get to the piers from the airport? Prices vary but what is an acceptable price for transfers?

Would appreciate any help thanks :)

There are ferries at 17.30 (Songserm Express) and 18.30 (Had Rin Queen). I am not sure of there departure points from Koh Samui but the Songserm Express docks at Thong Sala which will be your best option since there are many songtaows/taxis which meet the incoming ferry boats. The Had Rin Queen docks at Had Rin which is in the south of Koh Phangan.

The Songsern leaves from Nathon, which is quite a distance from the airport, but still doable. The Lomprayah also leaves from Nathon and is late more than not, meaning it usually doesn't leave Smaui until around 5:30pm. Both of these ferries arrive in Thong Sala.

The Haad Rin Queen leaves from Big Buddha at 18:30, which is very close to the airport, though it arrives in Haad Rin, which is quite a distance from Santhiya.

Regardless, I am sure that Santhiya will send a car to fetch you no matter what pier you arrive at.

You could easily make the 6:30 Haad RIn Queen ferry. That's the fastest. It docks in Haad Rin. The pier is less than 1 km from the airport. It docks in the south east corner of Phangan. From there get a taxi the few miles to your resort. Be prepared, it's very hilly! The journey there will be quite an adventure.
