Even it was a cloudy day, the 2 dives we did was amazing... It is all well organized... Spectacular sealife, turtles, barracudas, eels, scorpion fish and many many others... Good big speed boat takes about 2 hours to get to the place.. One of the best spots in Lankawi... Don't miss it even if you go just for snorkeling

What had started as a fun day ended in a very stressful evening. After the tour finished we arrived back to langkawi wharf and were given a designated area to wait for our transfer back to the hotel. Our tour leader was very unprofessional and most times spoke very rudely to us.. He left us without ensuring that we picked... More

Seawater isn't as clear as it should be by the name of marine park. Anyway, there are many fishes. Snorkelling by the beach is a chance to see blacktip reef shark from babies to 1-m long, but not so many coral reef to see. Scuba diving gives you a chance to see giant moray eel, giant grouper, barracuda, nudi, titan... More

It was an amazing experience. Water is very clean and clear you could see the reef clearly and swim with the marine fishes and scuba diving is a wonderful experience too.

Came here for snorkeling and is quite boring. The view is not as beautiful as the photo shown. Still a must at langkawi. The beach is polluted. The sea water was not as clear as I thought. Bring some bread to feed the fish is quite interesting. Be careful not to step on the coral, the fish will bite your... More

I ordered the beach package from Agency for only RM75, and platform is over RM120, the only difference is the location and the lunch..but we go for snorkeling, not for the lunch. And you can actually swim all the way from the beach to their platform. And even the agency told to book the cheap ones. Normal water, not that... More

There are 3 types of visit - beach and packed lunch, raft with buffet lunch and direct access into the water from the raft , and diving packages. We booked the raft with buffet lunch which also was supposed to include a catamaran ride to the island instead of a ferry and a glass bottom boat ride. We got on... More
