Boat services and costs to beaches at Penang's National Park

Hi,

Any idea on the fare costs per person per ride for the boat services between the park entrance and the monkey beach as well as turtle beach?

Any idea if I can rent a boat for few hours between Shangri-la Rasa Sayang and National Park's beaches and for how much. We are a family of four (2 adults and 2 kids). How long is the ride to get there?

Thanks.

Boats can only sail if the sea is calm - when you travel makes a difference.

Boats to the beaches go from Teluk Bahang - just look for the jetties.

As to the cost - sorry, don't know.

Turtle beach is not suitable for swimming as there is a very steep 'shelf' and the waves can get quite big.

Hire a boat from the hotel's watersports center

Shangri-La's Rasa Sayang Resort & Spa has an "Eco Center" where you can find out more about the boat tour :)

There are boat operators at the entrance of National Park, you might need to hire the whole boat if there are no other people to share. It is advisable to arrange for the return trip.

From park entrance to monkey beach - MYR 50 per boat (of 10-12 people) one way.

From park entrance to turtle beach - MYR 100 per boat, one way.

Some days when there are more people, then the boat man collect MYR 5 per person to the monkey beach, and MYR10 each to the turtle beach.

Or you may charter the whole boat for a 4 hr Turtle Beach tour for the cost of MYR350 - 400, from the boat operator at the Park Entrance.
