We took a catamaran to the park with a big group of tourists. The park is beautiful and one can snorkel to see corals and lots of fish. The tourists are allowed to feed the fish and sometimes the fish bites your legs (first time bitten by a fish) :) The journey by boat is about 1 hour from main... More

We went today to pulau payar marine park and the snorkeling experience was just amazing. Never ever thought in my life that I would see the underwater world in the real world exactly like what I see on TV.

Please aware of the prices as the foreigner will need to pay a bit extra. Nice Island unfortunately we as the tourist... sometimes forget... More

The place is amazing with white sandy beach, beautiful fishes, shark, coral and many more. A lot of spot for diving with beautiful coral everywhere. Nevertheless the water do slightly murky at certain area maybe due to natural sediment and water circulation in that area.

Bus picked us up on time (8:30 AM) at hotel and left shortly for island (relatively speaking / tourist time) after arriving at pier. Nice boat ride on speed boat/ferry (45 minutes) and awesome fish sighting / snorkeling at island (platform)......we saw LOTS of different fish - including sharks (sand sharks, I believe). Very nice lunch and very friendly, courteous... More

Disclaimer: I would like to highlight that experience may vary from people to people, this is what i experienced. Pulau Payar is lovely. You get to swim with harmless sharks and you may get the chance to see barracuda. I love the snorkel. NOW TO THE FUN PART: We arrived at Langkawi, where my travel agent suggested that I spend...

From langkawi to the pier then the ferry ride takes around 3-4 hours one way. You get around 3 hours at the reef platform. So the time spent there may not be worth the transport time. The reef platform was absolutely flooded with people. They had enough staff to cater for them. But I think too many people spoils the... More

We booked this trip via Beryaja resort. I would have expected that the Beryaja responsible would have warned us for this extremely disappointing trip. The bus drive and ferry took 3,5 hours, the bus stopped at multiple locations to pick up people. When arriving on the island it was overcrowded with snorkelling people destroying the few remaining corals. Toilets were... More

The trip starts with a nice boat ride that takes you to the island from Langkawi. Once there, you need to pay for storing your stuff, collect your goggles and you are ready to hit the water. The fishes are aplenty, even a couple of small sharks and you can laze around in the water as well. If you need... More
