Not the greatest snorkeling

Lunch provided was mediocre. Small beach and lousy changing rooms. Not really worth the time and money, but the large sharks made it interesting.

We had an awesome time here while snorkeling. The location is about an hour's boat ride from the jetty point on the South Ester corner of Langkawi. The ride there wasn't luxurious but comfortable enough with AC and some tv. The island it self is really good and has some great corals and a diverse variety of fish to see... More

We went in Dec 2015. It was my first time snorkeling and I thoroughly enjoyed it. The water is clean and the corals looked so lovely! the highlight of this trip for me was swimming along the harmless baby sharks. It was just amazing. The park is around 45 mins ferry ride away from the main land langkawi. As only... More

There are several tour companies that go to this Island, and as far as I could tell they're the same as each other. I did the snorkeling tour, not scuba. From hotel pickup to arriving at Coral Island took a total of 3 hours, but the stay on the Island was only 3.5 hours, so you're spending almost twice that... More

Really its a amazing feeling, doing snorkeling over there, I have done snorkeling before, but this is for a long time, more than a hour.. It's really good feeling swimming with the fish around you. U can see alot of coral fishes around there. Food is good, no more veg options and well maintained snorkeling kits and life jackets. Don't... More

Headed out for what's meant to be the best snorkelling in Langkawi... It wasn't great. There are a few problems with this place. The first been wind! One would think they might have some spots on different sides of the island depending on wind. Sadly this is not the case. So we snorkelled in waves... Very average. The second problem... More

The journey begins with a rather long ferry ride to the marine park.... Once you reach the park you're given your masks. The beach is rather small and there are a lot of ppl that they gather at once. It is good place for snorkeling if you are courageous enough to go in the deep waters. If you stay in... More

Time spent on the island was just amazing. We were diving and snorkeling there. Many thanks for diving guys! Good service and value for money. Snorkeling was just amazing exept asian tourists. They do not understand how to behave in conservation places - steping on the corals, littering, not respecting wild nature. It wad really good time and I could... More

If you enjoy snorkeling and the ocean, this day trip is for you. We organized ours from the hotel, so we were dropped off the ferry station where we met our tour group. The tour group provided us with a packed lunch, but I would recommend taking a few snacks for yourself in case you do not like the lunch... More

I do not have a lot of diving experiences. I only had about 20 dives so far. But this is my worst dive ever. The visibility is so low. There were nothing to see underwater. The beach, however, is nice. Water is clearer. And I saw black tip reef shark from above.
