DO NOT TAKE THESE BOATS! we took it, a family of 4 about 2 years ago and i still break down about it now. I thought the boat was going to capsize several times as the engine cut off in really rough seas in darkness in this tiny old boat! This journey was pure HELL. I was afraid of loosing all my family for a 4 hour ride! NEVER EVER AGAIN will i get on any boat without checking it out thoroughly before. There are other ways to go from Lankawi-Penang.

Yelled at by staff, claustrophobic environment, no open airspaces to sit, this is a ferry disaster waiting to happen! Fly to Langkawi!!!

Have to queue for almost 20 minutes as only one counter open. Unfortunately we were seated at a very narrow seats. No rooms for luggage. Put everything on our laps.

A sea-sickness inducing trip that was not only attributable to some rough water. The windows were opaque so no view was visible. The ladies in my party told me the toilets were so ghastly they were unusable.the floor under my seat was soaking wet - hopefully from sea water!

However, it was cheap and pretty much on time...

Watch out for rip-off baggage handlers on the Langkawi side who tempt those with many bags with large trolleys, but lead you to their principals who demand 10RM per bag!
