In Malaysia trip, we planned to visit KL & Langkawi to celebrate our anniversary in 2013.This time we were in the mood of doing something adventurous. So we decided to opt for scuba diving, snorkeling & mangrove forest tour.
We learned that there was no need to know swimming for introductory divers as an instructor would be provided for each person under deep sea. Believe me it was an awesome experience. We both were a little tensed during the mini training session. But once we proceed to explore the under water world, we felt "yes this is called true heaven". We went separately with our guide & in a few seconds our fear was gone.
We took a package tour to do all adventurous activities. In the morning Bus came & took us from our resort to Eagle square from where the actual trip was started. It took almost an hour or a little more to reach Pulau Payar Marine Park. Instructor gave us necessary information & taught us the signal to communicate under water. We dressed ourselves with life jackets, Oxygen cylinders, masks etc. It was 15-20 min diving to view the under water creatures. After that they took us to the beach point where they provided packed lunch. Post lunch we did snorkeling for the 2 hours. I was so excited to see the cute colorful fishes all around me. But one thing I would like like to share that after doing scuba activity, snorkeling would not be that exciting...though its a personal feeling & may vary person to person. On the way back to eagle square one person came & handed over two certificates for our introductory diviing..& my expression was "WOWWW!!!".
You do not need to carry foods as lunch & drinks served at the beach area. Wash room facility is available in the jetty & in the beach & is good. You can book this trip from airport itself as many agents are waiting there with planners, negotiate for a better price. We have booked this trip in advance as we didn't had much time. It will take your full day, so plan accordingly for other sites. They will drop you at your hotel after completion of the trip.
