A decent sized boat that serves as transportation from Koh Tao to Koh Phangan to Koh Samui. It was a good value, and got us there safely. Upstairs and outside are good, and if you are towards the front, you don't get splashed to much.

The ferry was overbooked leading to no seats for many passengers. Unfortunately this was a day with rough sees leading to unable to not be knocked around. Would recommend the Lomparaya where there has always been one seat per person.
