The "snorkeling tour" with Langkawi Coral was one big disappointment. We were shuffled to a snorkeling platform together with 200 other - mostly Chinese travel groups. Snorkeling takes place around a metal platform. Equipment includes jackets, masks and snorkels but no fins. The reef is full of fish and next to the snorkeling area is another beach with many beach... More

We are certified open water divers and were recommended to experience Langkawi Coral for diving by our hotel - Andaman Luxury Resort. Big mistake and I am surprised a reputed hotel like Andaman (part of Starwood chain) would do so. It was a TERRIBLE experience. The platform (10m x 50m) was teeming with over 300 tourists, surprising that no one... More

My husband and I booked this tour via our hotel. It didn't start well as we spent nearly an hour inside the ferry for it to leave Langkawi Port, then around one hour to arrive to Pulau Payar. The whole event was poorly organised, when we arrived nobody gave instructions after a while we saw one of the organisers trying... More

Being between Christmas and New Year we went at one of the busiest times. Our travel agent had arranged so I am not sure how we ended up on the tour we did. We took a 45 minute boat ride (quite large safe catamaran) out to a floating pontoon at an outer island. Initially the handing out of masks and... More

The minute I got to Langkawi, the first thing I wanted to do was clock a couple of dives. And the concierge at the resort we were staying in guided us to their very own help desk, where they book a number of tours for you. So Langkawi Coral it was. They came and picked me up from the resort... More

Our kids had a blast with to easy access to lots of fishes from platform. Buffet lunch was ok with beers and snacks available for purchase at 2X of convenient store prices.

Langkawi is famous for the beautiful corals and yes, Sharks!!! Black tip sharks are quite common to see on the sea shore. It should be must do thing whenever travelling to Langkawi!

Really poor tour experience. The reef itself is very good but for most people to get there you use a tour which is really bad, Overcrowded, not clear communication and poor food.

This review is off Langkawi Coral, I have made a separate review of the Langkawi Marine Park elsewhere. Langkawi Coral and by association Coral reef (they seem synonymous) are a mess. We used they for a family trip to the Marine Park which is worth a visit, however do try and find an alternate route, personally I tried but with... More
