The service will be run by the Royal Passenger Liner Co, the company which currently operates the ferry between Pattaya and Hua Hin
The new service will run from Chuk Samet pier in Sattahip and Bang Bao pier on Koh Chang, officials from the Marine Department have confirmed.
There is no news yet regarding fares for the service as ticket prices are still to be decided, officials said.
In addition, the Marine Department also plans to launch a car ferry service between the Chuk Samet pier and Pranburi in Prachuap Khiri Khan.
The proposed service has been put forward for consideration by the Transport Ministry and would require the construction of a new pier at a cost of more than one billion baht
