3 Speed Boat

Koh Chang speed boat is by far the most comfortable & safest way to travel between the tropical islands of Koh Chang, Koh Kood, Koh Mak and Koh Wai, which are all located in the Koh Chang archipelago. Enjoy the excitement of travelling by fast speedboat when you journey from any resort, hotel or guesthouse on Koh Chang to your private resort on Koh Kood island in only 70-90 minutes or to one of the many family resorts on Koh Mak in just 45 - 60 minutes. Koh Chang speed boats will also make regular stops at Koh Wai, Koh Kham and Koh Rayang, if there are any passengers to drop off or pick up on these quiet & very laid back islands that are located between Koh Mak and Koh Chang. During most of the high season, usually running from October 31st until the first week of May, Depart form Laem Ngob Pier.
