I'd just gotten my open water certification at home a week before I went on holidays to Penang with some family, and decided I'd take a day trip to Pulau Payar to go diving. I'd read some of the reviews for Langkawi Coral and for...More

Coral arranged a day trip for my husband and I to visit Payar island today costing 190 RM each which is around £40. This has been my worst experience in Langkawi since we arrived last week. The whole experience was sub standard and very poorly...More

We had this tour on the 12th of August 2018. In one word, it was horrible. We paid a lot of money for this tour (Snorkeling + transit Penang – Langkawi – 840 RM). Much more than any other tour in Malaysia I think. Besides,...More

Ferry was slow and packed like sardines. Herded like sheep with poor communication on what to do or expect. Beach was tiny for over a hundred people. Tables were squeezed so close you couldnt navigate through. Lunch was tasteless and poor quality. Toilets were filthy....More

We enjoyed snorkelling. Difficult as waves were high and it was a windy day. Structure of the day unnecessarily long with this company. Ferry journey so slow compared to speed boat. Too big of a group so it's a slow process getting people together and...More

If you ultimately want to see and experience great snorkelling, then this is the right tour. We would have seen 50+ species of fish (including black tip reef sharks and a sea snake!) and the reef is in fantastic condition. The tour, however, is pretty...More

OH DEAR! Don’t join! Can’t even survive an hour of this snorkelling tour. At 8 am, we were going pushed on a car to bring us to the pier. From that moment, I knew that it would be bad as we were treated as their...More
