They also provide transportation, mini-van and/or ferry, between Pattaya City and Koh Samet/BanPhe Pier, Rayong. If you intend to take their ferry, the Malibu & Samet Boat will ply between Ban Phe and Ao Vongduen Beach of Koh Samet. Malibu Garden Resort is also located on Ao Vongduen Beach. You can also make reservation with them for stay at Malibu Garden Resort on Koh Samet island.
Most of Ko Samet, including all the good parts, is part of Khao Laem Ya-Mu Ko Samet National Park and thus has an entry fee. Thais pay 40 baht for adults, 20 baht for children (2010); foreigners pay 200 baht for adults, 100 baht for children (2012). You are expected to pay this entry fee at either Samet Island Tour office in Ban Phe or on the ferry.
myonlinetour.com have used their services and it was excellent. They picked us up at one of the Pattaya's hotel, to and fro BanPhe pier/Samet island. The round trip is B600/person (as of May 2012). Supposingly you could email to them to book your transportation about one week before your scheduled travel, including your return trip if any. There is a simple toilet on the ferry. If you take their ferry, our advise is not to wear long pants as there is no pier at Ao Vongduen beach, the ferry will stop near the beach, then you will hop on to a mini-barge that will bring you very close to the beach and you need to get off, your legs will be submerged into sea water and may reached up to knee-height during high tide. If you just want to come back from Ao Vongduen beach (Koh Samed) to BanPhe, just a one-way trip on the Malibu Ferry from Samet to BanPhe is B60 / person, you can buy the ferry ticket at Ao Vongduen Beach, proceed to Malibu Garden Resort information counter (see bottom right picture below) to buy the ticket or exchange for a ferry ticket if you have bought a round-trip ticket.
