Scuba Diving in Langkawi

Where to Dive in Langkawi

Snorkeling and scuba diving are activities everybody, young or old, experienced or amateur, can do and enjoy. With minimum equipment and preparation requirements, snorkeling especially can be enjoyed as a family since all you need are fins and a mask to get a glimpse at the amazing undersea world. While it is possible to snorkel and scuba dive around the main island of Pulau Langkawi, these activities are best done at the reefs around the Pulau Payar Marine Park, 19 nautical miles off Langkawi Island. A fantastic place some consider on par with Tioman and Redang’s offerings, the simplicity of the setup and arrangement for snorkelling and diving activities here make it incredibly popular for amateur and advanced enthusiasts.

Scuba Diving in Pulau Payar

Scuba diving is another activity that’s offered by the tour operators to Pulau Payar. Once you book a trip to the island, the operators will approach you on the ferry to see if you’re interested in scuba diving. The dive masters provide a one on one guide for those who decide to take up on the offer, so that those who have never dived before can do so.

The deeper waters where the operators bring you hold a richer variety of large fish. Guided by experienced divers, you’ll see schools of large fish including barracudas, cod and snappers which are absent from the shallow waters of the beach in Pulau Payar. After an hour or two in the deep water, the divers will head back to Pulau Payar for some fun and relaxation.
