This was hands down the weirdest diving experience I've ever had. Must admit it was very well organized, down to the seconds but in a way, as person it made us feel like build a bears on a conveyor belt. We we're rushed to the ferry, then rushed to the diver's corner, rushed on a boat, rushed into the water,... More

We booked our trip a day in advance (at Cenang Beach) and were picked up at almost 8.45 am the next morning. After picking a few more people from different hotels, we were dropped off at the Ferry Terminal. It was a completely touristy setting with more than 100 people easily on the ferry itself but at the platform, different... More

A group of us did this from Penang and back and was around 90 USD per person which included all transport and lunch. Ferry was about 2 hours, slept both there and back. What I liked about this though, which a lot of other reviews have criticised, was the absolute freedom of it. You were free to stick to the... More

This is an all day outing and not suitable for young children. The day starts at 7am from the hotel and returns at 6.30pm. We begin with a 40 min coach ride from Batu Feringhi to George Town, then we board a 2 hour ferry ride to the Langkawi Coral Platform. The transportation to/fro is so draining, that is not... More

Overall an Ok day but not what we expected when compared with your usual European/Caribbean catamaran and snorkel swim trip. Travelling for over 5 hours being the biggest issue. Staff were helpful and polite but if you benchmark your trips by travel time, age and maintenance of transport/facilities, snorkelling/Scuba diving experience and food/beverages, check the brochure and question the agent...

Title says it all, the company organize trips to Palau payar national park, coral beach, where you can snorkle with fish and baby sharks. Lunch so so. Sight itself prettygood, but company organizing skills and logistics is terrible. 10 hour trip, 3 hour 15 minutes on site. Real transportation time between hotel and sight about 2x2 hours. Rest of time... More

Departing from Penang Island by ferry reaching here was about 10am. Not sure it is all the while this Langkawi Coral platform is always unstable or today the wave is higher frequency all of us suffer of dizziness until we jump in the sea for snorkeling. Nice Coral you can see around the Platform :) But the food prepared by... More

So busy and mis-organised. We had to get up at 6am to leave hotel at 7. Arrived at pier at about 9, but waited around an hour and a half while hundreds and hundreds more people came. Was about 12noon before we arrived at the barge. We literally could have gotten from our hotel to our house in KL quicker!... More
