I would think it would be eaiser if you all payed for a taxi from the airport or small minibus to take you to Kota Besut, I would pay a little more for less hassle because you have a baby.

The ticket office at the pier was just a wooden shack on a wooden pier in 2005.

You can take a speedboat or a slowboat (1 1/2 hour)but get to the Islands early morning if possible if you get afternoon boat very good chance you might struggle to find someplace to stay unless you have pre-booked, which I would reccomend considering I had to spend my first night in a big Dormatory to wait for someone to leave one of the huts the next morning.

have a good time.

Forgot to mention how much it will cost, well in 2005 it was about RM28 but guess these days it will cost abit more but there is four of you so you can split the cost.
