Khao Lak to Koh Lanta transportation options

Would I be able to find a travel agency in Khao Lak which will be able to organize Khao Lak to Koh Lanta bus+ferry transfers? I am assuming this would be the cheapest way.

If so, what would be a good price to pay for such trip? Price? Time for the complete trip?

Thanks!

Boss of Cheaper than Hotel Taxis and Andaman Snorkel Discovery both do precisely that. Price to pier both is 4000 baht, Boss charges 4500 baht including ferry ticket, ASN charges 4500 baht to hotel on Ko Lanta.

Contact Boss on cheaper_khaolak@ymail.com

and

Eike at ASN on eike@andamansnorkeldiscovery.com

Alternatively there is a daily minibus from Khao Lak (opposite Namg Thong Supermarket, buy tickets at the travel agent across the beach road next to the NTS) to Krabi Town - see this recent topic for details of those who have done this https://www.tripadvisor.co.uk/ShowTopic-g297…

Thank you for the information about daily minibuses.

first option is waaay too expensive so it's definitely not for us.

I am surprised no travel agency would book a combo transfer to Koh Lanta.

It's a question of demand. Khao Lak to Krabi is two hours, Khao Lak to Ko Lanta is upwards of 5 hours depending on ferry times. Most people, especially families with children and a fair amount of luggage prefer to pay for the convenience of a door to door or door to ferry pier transfer.
