I went to Pulau Payar from Langkawi island with East Marine. It was a great experience. I dove and did some snorkelling as well. The visibility for snorkelling was great and we saw a lot of fish; my friends even saw several sharks. The diving was good too even if the visibility was poor most of the time. East marine... More

Wow, what a beautiful place, value for money for the day trip. TIP: Take a few loaves of bread to feed the fish and sharks as it will make your experience so much better. There are thousands of fish and lots of little black tip reef sharks all around the shallows. They are safe to swim with and feed -... More

Lots of fishes and good colourful corals. Reasonable good dive for beginners as water is relatively calm without current. There are not much large marine life except some small sharks. Snorkelling area is a bit over crowded. Lots of fishes but no corals. Lunch is reasonable - packed. Overall worthy of the money - comparatively cheap when compared with other... More

We visited the Pulau Payar Reef Platform on a day trip from Penang Island with two kids under 10. What a fantastic day! Plenty of fish, reasonably good quality equipment for snorkelling and scuba diving, glass bottom boat for those who didn't want to get wet, and a brilliant separate floating platform to run, jump and do somersaults from, which...

I went to pulau payar several years ago and loved it, this year I decided to revisit the island to go snorkeling again. Unfortunately, the night before there was a big storm, so the water was very choppy and rough on the day that we took the boat from penang. Many people were seasick on board. Upon reaching the island,... More

Although the water is calm and the fish very friendly, the snorkeling at Palau Payar requires one to wade and swim through tons of plastic and Styrofoam. The area might collect this material since currents/tides seem to create an eddy at this beach. Many operators can take you here. Expect to join hundreds of others. Choose the least expensive trip--no... More

It take almost a day of your time going to Pulau Payar, starting from 9am pick up from hotel, 10am-ish ferry ride to Pulau Payar, 11.30am-ish reach till Pulau Payar (starts snorkeling) till 3pm then reach back to jetty around 4pm. Package comes with lunch (was not good). Snorkeling was not really fun as it water was not as clear... More
