Lots of fish. some of my friends went with East Marine & we went with Naam. Both of us had a good time snorkelling & fish & coral spotting. Take the trip on a nice & not too windy day,

Crystal clear water and can see lot of fishes of different varieties. If we go a little further, can see coral. One has to be careful about the big stones in some places. Do not forget the sun screen creams.

nice enough, with quite a few fish including lots of baby black tip sharks. clarity on our trip was not so good due to high levels of plankton. would not mind going again for a dive.

The water is clear and you can see a nice variety of fish but the place is not clean, the water either. You cannot sunbathe, there is no place. Can do better when it comes to snorkelling.

Travelled to Langkawi in early September 2014 and spent one day in Pulau Payar Marine Park. FYI: Pulau means Island in Malay so local people will mention "Payar Island" to you. Cost: It varies. I got a very good deal from the travel agency in my hotel and it is just RM 230 per head (cash price) for the platform... More

We went there for Scuba Diving and Snorkeling. Crystal clear water and colourful fish all around. One cannot feed baby sharks anymore but at the end of end you may see tour managers feeding after making sure everyones out of the water. Must visit when in langkawi.

I'm still surprised with myself why I chose to go to Pulau Payar for my ninth visit to Langkawi. Everything went wrong during the trip. The not-so-good day started with heavy rain in the morning, we were rushing to pack our things as we have to check out on that morning as the trip ends around 5ish. The bus came... More

We had a super day out with kids here - saw lots of fish (esp once sun came out and vis improved significantly). One bit of advice though - pay the extra $20 or whatever and go with the more expensive company. We went with the cheaper one and the boat trip was horrendous. Almost everyone was sick!

My 7-year old daughter was trying snorkeling for the first time at Palau Payar. There were plenty of fish, coral and a few sharks to see which was great. The not so great part was the debris that you had to dodge floating in the water. This island is flooded with tourists each day and sadly the garbage is a... More
