Both Rampant Sailing and Damai Indah are excellent. Either one would be suitable for you and your kids.

They would probably also enjoy a mangrove trip with one of the eco-friendly operators such as Dev's Adventures. The guides on here will make it very interesting and informative for your kids.

Remenber to leave time for your 3 and 5 year old children to play on the beach,it will probably be the best part of their holiday.

i remain unconvinced that either of these options is good with two small children. you do realise how much it will cost, don't you? children are charged at FULL price on rampant. so around rm1200 for a day out. or put another way - the same as 4 nights in a cheap hotel! damai indah is 50% more.

you will also need to email to check if there are any age limits.

really - i think a cheap island-hopping trip would be better. these have less time on a boat, and more time doing other stuff.

don't get me wrong - i loved our days out with rampant. but i can't see it working with young kids.

You are already aware of Cable Car plus you can try to see the Sky Bridge and Telaga Tujuh Waterfalls! They are nice attractions and your kids will probably love them!

The original Damai Indah has a wooden tiller that I believe Capt Eva lets older kids steer for a bit. I haven't been on a DI cruise in a couple of years but I've seen Eva or one of the other captains show older kids their navigation equipment and explain some basic sailing stuff to them.

Some other suggestions for kids: there's a glass-blowing workshop at the back of Kompleks Kraf, or the Langkawi Craft Centre. Drive all the way to the parking lot at the back. It's very interesting.

If you go to Wildlife Park at 9am in the morning, the bird in the aviary are hungry and will land on your arms and shoulders to get birdseed. Kids will go nuts. There are also quail on the ground. Don't forget to feed them too (even though they peck HARD).

If your kids are older and into Karaoke, you can leave them in the evenings at the karaoke rooms at Sun Block in Pantai Tengah while you go dance and get drunk at the Sun Ba nightclub just a few feet away.
