Koh Samui resumes ferry operations as weather improves

Facebook/Jerin Dobson

Ferry services to and from Koh Samui have resumed after being cancelled due to strong winds and big waves. The ferry services, which normally operate every hour, are currently operating every half-hour, to accommodate pent-up demand following the 2 day suspension.

Over the past two days, some tourists, who had flights to catch or other urgent plans, were scurrying for flights off the island.

A large number of cars waited to join the ferry operated by the C-Transfer Company, with the queue stretching for more than 2 kilometres. Many passengers had arrived before sunrise to ensure they were able to board on the morning’s ferry rides.

An increased frequency, with the service running every half-hour, was put in place to serve the long line of passengers, vehicles, and trucks carrying agricultural produce.

The first ferry departed at 4.30am and the service will operate until 7.30pm, according to the report. However, the ferry company says that if weather conditions turn bad again, the service will have to be suspended again.

Today, Samui has moderate north to north-easterly winds with mixed sunshine and cloud and a top temperature of 28 degrees. Fair weather continues into the forecast period this week.
