^ there usually is Steve.
I disagree on the comfortable comment especially versus a road trip.

My plan was to get to central Pattaya, so if transport is there then that is good, I am just concerned about ferry cancellations during the rain season.

Surely the comfort and enjoyment can't be worse than 5 hours in a car on ting tong roads.

I'd suggest going to the office at the HH pier and speak them in person about cancellations. Bring someone that speaks both languages.

Transport to central Pattaya will not be a problem.

Comfort will definitely be better than driving.

HH is in Takiab. Very easy to find, follow the signs.

Pattaya is at the main wharf near walking street.

Plans to build a ferry pier at Pak Nam Pran Connecting the EEC East Coast Economic Corridor
On September 6, Deputy Governor of Prachuap Khiri Khan, presided over the opening ceremony of a meeting with plans to study the area with a view to linking Hua Hin to the East Coast Economic corridor.


The plans envision potential travel routes across the Gulf of Thailand from Prachuap Khiri Khan, Phetchaburi, Samut Prakan and Chonburi. The new links are part of the Thailand Riviera project.

It was reported that for the layout of a specific area at Pak Nam Pran, there will be a ferry pier project. Chonburi is able to accommodate both passengers and vehicles. The project will affect approximately 20 square kilometers of infrastructure in the area.

The storm wouldn't be a problem, it's the wind that's the problem, and we don't have even a slight breeze here. Of course, it might be different out in the Gulf.

Of course the storm would be a problem, it would have been belting down with strong winds and waves

I used to go deep sea angling a lot. Heavy rain and thunder did not mean it would be windy.

In fact heavy rain can have the effect of tempering the waves

I've also been on boats in the gulf in rain and some but not strong wind and the waves were crazy.
