"Langkawi Coral" nothing to cheer about, worst food and service weren't that good... The Marine Park it self: corals are dead (jan 2015), there is some reef sharks you can see in the water if you are lucky + there is actually many different fish in the water. But sometimes wind can make water mudy and you will not see... More

Was there drng my working days in langkawi. Had the luck to meet a few friends who were boat owners. Went there to do snorkeling but the best part was doing scuba diving at the coral gardens. The corals were very beautiful and the myriad colours that made up the corals were just breathtaking. The day trip might be a... More

This park is well worth a visit for its pristine marine environment. The water was clear and you could clearly see the fishes and coral unlike many Malaysia beaches which are heavily polluted. The island itself has some very basic facility and the ferry to get there is nothing to get excited about. Toilet on the island is very dirty.... More

the transfers on the morning were unorganised and we sat round waiting for tour groups and were an hour late getting there. The park itself was dirty with cigarette butts all over the beach to the point I wouldn't put my two year old down because he kept picking them up. The lunch was cold KFC chicken with rice and...

I had been here with my wife and this excursion was the best part of the Trip!! The place is beautiful and provides good snorkelling sites. Advice: Try to take the earliest private boat to this place. Cauz this place tends to get crowded later in the day. We had the entire bay for us cauz we reached earlier.

Overall it is nice, scuba, snorkling. Nice activities. Just it took an hour depart from Kuah Jetty. And the air-conditioning is rather cold inside the boat. Better to bring along your sweater, a piggyback bag with towels and at least a set of clothes for a change if you get wet.

Book a snorkeling packaging with Langkawi Coral for RM120 per pax. We were given a sticker on the day so that the pick up bus can recognize us. The pick up was suppose to be 8am but a bus came by the main road at 8.15am. We saw another group of tourists waiting too, however their sticker matches the deign... More

We booked through a local travel agent and it ran smoothly and to plan and very reasonably priced. The trip in the boat was fine although the air conditioning was SO cold we all froze and they didn't seem to be able to adjust it. The operation was smooth but the snorkelling was disappointing. The water was not very clear... More

On arrival the platform was crowded but the crowd quickly dispersed into the sea . It was a gloomy day but visibility was upto 30 ft . Fish were plentiful and... More
