There are so many different ways to get around Koh Rong island. My very first trip, we took a speed ferry, and our second time we took Happy boat journey.
Once you get to Sihanoukville, you will see almost everywhere the sign of selling boat/ferry ticket to Koh Rong. Or you can book online: https://bookmebus.com/en/speed-ferry-cambodia?utm_source=mtc&utm_medium=content&utm_content=KR&r=n1FZJTpAibuRtzgzqa3P7axo
There are several speed ferry companies operating multiple daily boats to and from the island’s main village, Koh Toch, and most offer hotel pickup in Sihanoukville. Tickets cost $22 return or $12 one way.
All boats leave from Serendipity Pier in Sihanoukville, unless otherwise specified. Occasionally weather conditions require boats to arrive and depart from Sihanoukville’s Royal Pier (the supply pier) but in this case, companies usually offer a shuttle bus service, free of charge.
The trip usually takes around 45 minutes, and the larger boat offers a smoother ride than the other companies.
