With the Lelawadee Speedboat, it takes about 50 minutes to get to Koh Mak. During high season the boat leaves daily from Laem Ngop at 10:30 and 14:00. The current rate is 450 Bath and takes you to Makathanee Resort (Ao Kao Beach). During low season other schedules apply.

This speedboat returns to Laem Ngop at 8.00 am and 12.00 noon.

Important: The last speedboat leaves at 16.00. When you miss this one, you have to sleep over in Trat or Koh Chang.  Depending on the weather condition, the speed-boats sometimes cannot operate. This happens 10-15 days a year.  Bring raincoats and cover for your bags in the rainy season.

If it rains, you will get wet! Another advice: Sitting in the back of the boat is more comfortable than in the front.

Most travelers and locals use this pier, it is more convenient and easier to reach.
