Tickets can't be bought online at the moment, so you have to buy them directly from the ticket offices at the jetties.
For onward travel from Satun to places like Hat Yai and Krabi, you best option is to take a songthaew to the bus station from the jetty (for around 30 Baht), or a motorbike taxi.
Otherwise, you will have to bargain hard with all the touts that wait for the ferry to arrive, to take you in an overpriced taxi and minivan.
Ferries to Langkawi from Satun arrive at the main port of Kuah Jetty.
