I really advice you not to take the bus - there are very hard roads in Kazakhstan, and buses not in good condition. If you want, try the Hitchhiking - Novosibirsk, Barnaul, Rubtsovsk, Veselojarsk -Aul (border point here), Semipalatinsk (Semey), Georgievka, Ayagoz, Taldykorgan, Almaty. This will be not very quick, but more comfortable. Also I found a flight ...

Turns out there's no direct easy way. Best way is to get a ticket to Beynou, and change an hour later for the train to Kungrad. From there local Uzbekistan transport will get one closer. I ended up getting a shared taxi from Kungrad to Nukus (10,000 soms), then decided to go via Khiva. Nukus to Khiva was 25000 soms in a shared taxi, and from there bus ...

According to this conversation, there is no ferries across the Caspian sea on this route (except some rumours I don't believe to), and all people suggests two types of trip: Plane company "Skat", phone in Astrakhan: 8(8512) 39 03 62, 8(8512) 39 41 95 Train from Astrakhan to Mangystau (20km from Aktau) I think the second one is exactly you are looking ...
