..a bit of travel info:
Regarding boat services to Koh Tao the fastest options for travelling from Samui & Phangan are the Seatran and Lomprayah ferries. Both run several trips each day taking about 2 hours. Lomprayah operates mainly from their Nathon & Maenam piers while the Seatran pier at Bangrak is located conveniently next to the airport very close to Chaweng Beach. You can check theirs and other boat schedules for booking online here.

Both companies also operate all-in-one transfers to Koh Tao from Bangkok via Suratthani in conjunction with Nok Air and Air Asia, while Lomprayah additionally services the BKK-Chumphon-Tao connection. With Nok select the "Fly and Ferry" Koh Tao destination while with Air Asia you'll need to choose Tao Island for the all-inclusive ride.

Koh Tao and Nang Yuan are a unique experience, please help us preserve and grow in harmony with our environment
