Went diving twice with East Marine Diving. The trip was very nice! Only thing to consider: if you just plan to go snorkeling don't expect a calm Robinson Crusoe feeling. It is tremendous busy with tons of people in the snorkeling area. For diving we were once 5 the second time 11 people within 4 groups - had a good... More

This place is nice for scuba and snorkelling. It is far from jetty point and usually the ferry takes around 45 minutes to reach once it has left the jetty point. The scuba they make us do is only for 20 mins max but it has good visibility of fishes so snorkelling would be fun to do. Going to this... More

We saw so many beautiful coloured fish and had a very relaxing few hours snorkelling. It is very crowded but when you re snorkelling you don't notice the crowds and can get lost in the peaceful underwater world of the sea. The coral has suffered (from rising sea temperatures?), so very little live coral but it is part of the... More

The Marine Park once there is fantastic, sea life truly abundant, I have snorkeled at Great Barrier Reef, Cayman Islands and in the Galapagos Islands but have never seen so many fish in such a small location - Partly this is due to the feeding that happens from teh tourists, I'm sure. We saw a couple of notable big fish... More

Normally the snorkeling tour to the Pulau Payar needs a whole day-time, including a commercial lunch whatever agency the visitor enquires. The sea there is very clear, shining with blue and green colors. It have quite good-looking coral and many small fishes. There has a bag-keeping counter charging for 10 RMs, but it's hard to believe there's any thief, so,... More

We choose to go with the Langkawi Coral platform, pick up from hotel was smooth etc. the reef was beautiful with lots of different fish and the Baby Sharks were nice. Be warned the trip is full of Chinese who don't have the same idea of manners as the western people. Lunch was a complete panic of trying to get... More

Have been to this place for Scuba diving and snorkelling. Our diving instructor Mr.Ali is very clear and explained everything in detail. Our tour guide is funny and made our tour quite exciting. It is a 1-hour boat ride from jetty point, Never thought Ocean is so calm and welcoming. Enjoyed my first scuba dive for 20 minutes and we... More

Was going to scuba dive, but unfortunately couldn't as i was to fly the next day, so I went for snorkeling instead. I'm glad i saved that 230rm difference, because even though the Palaus Payar island was really pretty, and the water was clear blue, the corals was just dead, and I would have expected way more marine life, than...
