The bar is always well stocked up and includes most poplar drinks and spirits.The cruising area is the north east of Langkawi, close to Thailand and covers the most beautiful islands of the archipelago; far off the beaten track.If you opt for a sharing cruise or a private charter – you will be in good hands!

“Great Fun & Support the Locals”
Reviewed March 25, 2013

While staying at the Westin we walked down to the Yacht Club to book with Captain Eva's Blue Water Cruises. The price was extremely reasonable & the food was outstanding! Please support the locals and don't book with the hotels. The hotels will drive you miles away, cost more and it gets crowded. If you don't drink, Eva will take a little off the cost. We cruised where there were no other tourist boats, and watched the locals fish as we swam & kayak in private. Captain Eva has a passion for her boats, her clients and the environment. Her crew is friendly, knowledgeable about the area. We cruised with one other couple and had the boat to ourself. Please support the locals, save a little money & experience a cruise far away from others on jet skis. You will be pleased at the cost & get great adventures.

“Fantastic day, beautiful boat, great crew!!”
Reviewed March 24, 2013

Thank you Eva and Din (and Bond) for a fantastic day!! This was without doubt the best day of our otherwise excellent holiday. The combination of attentive hosts, great company, beautiful setting, fantastic food and more than enough to drink made for the perfect cruise. Even our kids who we feared might get bored and ratty loved every moment, especially jumping off the top deck into the ocean.
We highly recommend this cruise and will go again ourselves next time we visit Langkawi. We were tempted to book on again for the following day.

“Best day of our trip”
Reviewed March 18, 2013

No doubt - Damai Indah provided both the single best day and the single best meal of our two week trip SE Asia.

Our family really loved all aspects of the cruise: the special atmosphere of a renovated old boat, superb food, great views and just the right amount of activities (a stop for a swim in the middle of the sea & a trip to an isolated beach). And a special thanks for the entire crew who were both skilled and fun - the team managed to create an atmosphere that was both attentive to detail and very relaxed at the same time.

If you are going to Langkawi, I can truly recommend the experience. We'll book another trip the next we are there.

“Just perfect!”
Reviewed March 18, 2013

If you only have time to experience one day trip whilst staying on Langkawi and don't know which to choose, this has to be it. We've just returned from an amazing holiday on the island, and our day on the Damai Indah will always be top of our memories. So different and original from most other boat trips we have ever taken; complete luxury, and we felt very spoilt indeed. The other reviews highlight well the detail of the day, and we would absolutely agree. The crew were delightful, highly professional, and great fun. We'll certainly go again when we can!
