I had not read the reviews before attending. The boat from the Jetty in Langkawi is a bit grim with awful toilet facilities and ambience. The platform is a bit of a scramble and has seen better days - fortunately it was not that crowded when we went. There was a wide ethnic mix and one group was loud and insisted on throwing large amounts of bread to attract the fish - despite being warned by staff of fines. However there was no enforcement by staff of the Marine Park rules. A large proportion of visitors and most of the staff smoke continuously on the platform and one has to wonder if this is an accident waiting to happen. We enjoyed the snorkellling and positives aspects of the trip!
