Cost of boats to get around // other cash needs

I have looked through the forums and can't find recent answers to these questions.

I know that one gets from one part of the island to another by hopping a "taxi boat" (or longtail?). And I understand they are pretty easy to find. How much is it per person, generally? (Not talking about chartering for a day, just to hop a boat to get somewhere else)?

Besides that expense, what else will I need cash handy for? Most restaurants (I assume?) take plastic -- or should I have cash for everything?

Thanks.

Subject to the destination a longtail boat trip cost between 80 to 200 Baht. Some restaurants in Ao Nang take plastic, bars usually don't. I don't know about Phi Phi.

Thank you....the restaurants in Tonsai Village don't generally take plastic?

Be wise to have a combination of cash and card - I personaly feel safer using cash than card outside of the resort.

You will need cash for shopping in 7/11's and most stalls.
