Hi Bridget,
If you arrive in Surat Thani at 15: 25 then you will have 4 opportunities.
1 - Sleeping in Surat Thani and take the first ship from about 10: 00 the next morning
2 - Sleep in Koh Samui and take a boat from the next day (first vessel at 8: 00 and last at 13: 30)
3 - Sleep in Koh Phangan and take a boat from the next day (first vessel at 8: 30 and last at 14: 00)
4 - Take the boat at night that part of Surat Thani at 23: 00 and arrives in Koh Tao at 7: 30.

Option 1, I do you not the Council. Little interest to stay in Surat Thani for my liking.
Option 2.3 are interesting. For Koh Samui, in your place I would take a hotel on Bophut or Mae Nam and then I'd take a Lomprayah boat from the aftermath of the port of Mae Nam (North of Koh Samui).
Option 4 is nice also. The night boat part of the port of Ban Don in Surat Thani (it is in the heart of the city, near the market)

For the return journey, you have a boat that part of Koh Tao with the Lomprayah company at 9: 30 and can bring you directly to Surat Thani airport shuttle. Arrival at 15: 15 at Surat Thani airport.
> See line numbered 15 on our table in the section "Transport schedules grid".
Journey to the Lomprayah to Koh Tao window. The tariff is currently 800THB for this journey.

Re Bridget,
On schedules they are all applicable every day of the week. There is generally no "schedule week end" in Thailand for the train, bus, boat, plane. Some boats at night and a few particular cases are exceptions.

When you say "a what time leave boats to Koh samui or Koh Phangan", I suppose that you talk about vessels departing from Surat Thani to Koh Samui and Koh Phangan.
I you Council take the ferry from Raja Ferry either Seatran Ferry.
"Wholesale" know of ferry depart Surat Thani (Don Sak port) every hour to go to Koh Samui and every 2 hours to go to Koh Phangan.
> For Raja Ferry = See schedules Don Sak - Koh Phangan here.
> For Raja Ferry = See schedules Don Sak - Koh Samui here.
As vera, the last boat you by at 19: 00 at 18: 00 to Koh Phangan and Koh Samui.
For Seatran Ferry I would advise to go to their web site the day where they will be translated into English at least...
Koh Phangan, I know what advise you because I know enough of this island. It seems that Tong Nai Pai Noi (to the northeast) is one of the best corners of Koh Phangan. But it is opposite the port of Thongsala (middle of the West Coast). So if you want to stay that night may be is better not too you away from Thongsala port for not by multiplying the trip... or not. Test to go to http://www.phangan-guide.com.

Accommodation on Koh Tao... the issue is more that discussed on kohtaozone. I invite you to do or redo the tour of the site. Determine first what sector you drew, and then from there you can begin to look at hotels.
If you hesitate between several corners, or hotels tell me and we can talk.
Also an important point in my view is whether if you come with children at an early age, how many people, and are you ready to move on a scooter/motorbike on the island. It is often crucial to determine his place of vacation on Koh Tao.
Also, you then want to talk d? accommodation I invite you to create a new message on the forum for convenience for readers.

We have 50 years and just relax us without children, to the snorkelling or diving (we have our open water)
I have seen 2 or 3 hotels: the "sensi paradise" or the "charm churee villa" is this property, bungalows with sea view
What is the nearest water and nature? the more sympathetic, quietest? or other hotels with bungalows of charm?

For diving, centre for upgrading because we have not dived for 18 months; There - he French instructors?
thank you

Hi Bridget,
For Charm Churee and Sensi they are beach. Therefore they have view on the sea for at least part of the bungalows as they propose. They are also generally more expensive. They are also 2 close to the water and nature. Lasts of the share and in addition they are geographically very close. Sensi Paradise is on the road that led to the Charm Churee.
The more sympathetic? Hard to say, they have all the 2 a charm certain and particular which gives them each their unique character. Also the two resorts well epousent the nature. It also seems to me that the 2 are also quiet. Hard to choose what are two very good reference for me. One aspect which could share c is the beach. The Sensi gives on the beach (South of Mea Haad) while the Charm Churee overlooks a Bay (JanSom bay) and the snorkelling was Jansom Bay is best that South of Mae Haad.

For diving is a Scuba Review which need you. All diving centres will offer you.
Concerning diving centres, yes there are francophone instructor has Koh Tao I te Council of reading this post: French diving centre is koh tao
Note that there is a diving centre in the Charm Churee but I do not think as they have English staff.

Hello everyone,
Thanks to everyone to share his experiences it helps a lot to make its choice.
About me, I am facing a small concern.
We (my darling and I) must depart from Bangkok to Koh Tao on December 14, 2012. I think opt for boat lomprayah Pier, starting at 6 a.m., arrived at 2: 45 in Koh Tao, is that you have already completed this journey?
My second question concerns the return, Koh Tao starting December 20 Executive Surat Thani to take our direction Kuala Lumpur at 11 h 20 flight... on the other hand, I am unable to find a way to get to Surat Thani at the time... WHO have an idea?
thank you in advance

to make original, same kind of question:

It was thought to do in December of Koh Phi Phi Koh Tao like this:

>>> Departure from Phi Phi at 10 h 30 == Krabi Bus at 2 pm == boat to Surat Thani to 18 h direction Koh Phagan: night in Koh Phangan (near the port but where?) == departure to Koh Tao at 8: 30, arriving at 10: 00.

What do you think?

You do not need to sleep Phangan to Samui.

To Surathani - Koh Tao, you have several choices: leave from Donsak with company Lomprayah (transfer from the city center included in the tickets) or starting from Surat with the boat at night.

For Lomprayah schedules you can watch it on their site, as the night boat leaves Surat at 11 pm and arrives at Koh Tao to 5 H...

See you soon!
