This one day trip would have been much more enjoyable, but the company (workers) ruined this for us. I understand that paying only 25 MYR means budget trip, but it definitly doesn't mean that they should be so rude with tourists. We all felt like we were treated like animals. Our boat was way too crowded and A and B Marine workers yelled at us. They didn't ask nicely to move out from the boat, they just yelled. One Japanese family was treated in extra rude way. Two "skippers" also smoked constantly on the boat even though there were many children around.
About the islands. Make sure you take something for lunch, drinking water and some money. They wil give you an hour to discover pregnant maiden lake, in my opinion 1 hour is too much so you could use this time to have a lunch. You will need some money for life jackets or watercycling.
Most of the places we visited were crowded and also trashed. A lot of boats were leaking and water was not clean at all. So all those white beaches were beautiful only from far distance. Some locals said that tourists are the ones who are throwing garbage to those islands but what I saw was that "skippers" are the reason why beaches are so trashed.
In conclusion I would recommend island hopping but just keep in mind that it's not very comfy trip.

We enjoyed a lovely 4 hour day trip stopping off at the islands and had a chance to swim in a lake and sea. It was a reasonable excursion (25 RM), so don't expect too much personalised attention for that amount. If you are willing to pay much more, then opt for one of the more established companies and then you will experience luxury and a lunch. We were on a budget and were therefore not disappointed as it was a simple way to view the islands around Langkawi. Take care not to get sea sick as the speedboat goes VERY fast!

I joined the island hopping local tour near my hotel,MailBest Resort, and the price was very reasonable. They had pickup and hotel return services at around 9am. Those islands were beautiful and good to see. Nice experience and so much fun. Good to spend half day on island hopping.

Even though pickup for the tour was 40 mins late I won't be faulting them in the review....at only 25RM(just over $8AUD) per person it is great value and a must do in my opinion. First we were taken to a beautiful natural lake to go swimming at. The walk through the forest is to the lake is shared by some cheeky little monkeys. Do not feed them! After chilling here for an hour we went and saw the eagled being fed. Great photos if you're quick enough...lastly we were taken to a beautiful calm beach for an hour before taken back to Langkawi...do it...the day we went it was sunny with calm seas...I hope you get the same. Well worth it...

Half a day well spent. Costs 40 MYR per head. You can even do a boat charter if you have a group of up to 8. Views are pretty good and they take you to a good beach which is far from main island so less crowd
