To save time you can get some help with a Google search. You can rent time in an internet shop for 10-30 baht.

Sample search:

Hi,

The last Raja Ferry leaves Don Sak Pier at 19.30 but it is a 1.5 hour drive away from the airport. So, you will need to book some accommodation nearby.

Yes,it's pushing it for time!

If you can get to Donsak, there are a few "resorts" near the pier, (not great from what I have seen!) but perhaps no buses going when no connections with a ferry that's leaving. But it would mean you can get an earlier ferry the next morning...

Seatran Ferry goes to Nathon, Raja ferry gores to Lipa Noi, about 5 kms south of Nathon, (both terminals about 1 kms from each other on the Donsak Side) .

I agree, it's best to stay in Samui for the night then get the earliest ferry at 8am. You can book with the website PhuketFerry for a bus and ferry combo from Suratthani to Samui.

One can just get the hotel in Surrat Thani to phone and book the bus and ferry combined ticket, that way the bus will know where to pick you up and take to the terminal. (it would be a combined ticket).

Ferries start at 5 am at Donsak and about leave every hour during the day (Seatran or Raja).
