This service arrives in Koh Samui at Na Thon Ferry Pier. Shared taxis and conventional taxis depart from the car park near the start of the pier. Conventional taxis are very expensive in Koh Samui and they refuse use a meter or stick to fixed prices. A better option is to take a shared taxi, which is a converted pick up truck with two rows of seats in back and a cover over the top. You may need to wait a while for a shared taxi to depart but you will pay a fraction of the cost of the same trip in a yellow taxi.
