However be warned, a private speedboat trip is costly. The average speedboat uses around 500 liters of fuel on a day trip to Surin, so the average price usually works out to about 50,000-60,000 Baht.
If this seems a bit out of your budget, we can also arrange for a private longtial boat to meet you when you arrive in the islands. Using the joined speedboat as a trasfer to the islands makes the private trip a lot more affordable.
