Exciting experience specially with the spped boat trip and the time at sea beach though short.
this was the highlight of our trip in Langkawi! got off to a slow start, had to wait about 1hr to get on boat as there was around 200 ppl waiting to do various tours. they squeezed around 20 of us on this boat so was very cramped. but once we got going it was all forgotten. lots of scenary along the way, stopped at preg maiden lake & had swim there- lots of monkeys around & quite abit of a walk. we then stopped at an area which had heaps of eagles flying around. after that off to the most perfect beach for around an hour of swimming & relaxing. watch out for monkeys on the beach as they unzip ur bags. great value for money, def worth doing. i thought the trip incl a stop at a wildlife sanctuary but we didn't stop there
Boat went very fast to first island, but it was magnificent swimming in the Lake of the Pregnant Maiden. Would have been better to have more time here and less time at rice island where there wasn't much to do. Eagle feeding was brilliant.
Enjoyable trip. Would have liked more time watching the eagles. We only stopped for about 10 mins. The last stop was at a beach for an hour but it was rather dirty because the monkeys pull all the rubbish out of the bins. Our beach at our hotel was 100% nicer so I didn't enjoy the beach stop.
It was a great trip! Made many new friends and the sites were great. The walk to the water area for a swim, well that's another story. It's worth your while, I just don't want to take the excitement out of your day. The boat was fast and unbelievable.
We both enjoyed this trip very much, the final beach at the end was beautiful, however the rubbish left over by the tourists was discusting! it was literally in all the undergrowth. other than that, well worth the money.

The tour is good, but it would be much better if there was a chance to step on Lion Island and spend more time on it!
Definitely worth taking. In my opinion though if we had had a better tour guide, speaking English to advise what we were seeing while on the boat and at the 2 stops, this tour would have been far better. But it was still worth the ride!
The first destination is not that great, beach and outlook is beautiful however lots of garbage on shore line. Not a great place for swimming if used to Australian beaches. The second stop is amazing, watching the eagle feeding is an experience not to be missed. You get to see them up close and its easy to get some amazing photos. The third stop to the pregnant maiden lake is an experience like no other. Be warned about the monkeys, do not take any food or drink bottles with you. Do not show any food, drink bottles or anything that could look like food/drink to the monkeys, they will charge until you drop it. Having said that, so long as you're prepared for the monkeys it was an experience not to be missed, the best opportunity to see monkeys up close and so long as you have no food/drink they are not a bother. The lake is amazingly beautiful but there is quite an uphill walk and many stairs up and down to the lake. Reasonable fitness level required.
This trip was good but overpriced from Viator however could be bought anywhere.
A good way to spend the morning and get some swimming done. Saw lots of cheeky monkeys that would come up to you quite boldly. They were the highlight of the tour
The tour is just so-so. Thing is : we'd visited two islands, one of the island. It's like " why are we here for" nothing to do or see on this island except walking on a stretch of not-so-nice beach.
Eagle feeding = ok
Wasn't that impressed with the tour. The boats were so crowded and we had to wait ages for everyone to load and unload the boats at the same time at each stop - so disorganised. Unfortunately the beach wasn't very nice either - could maybe have something to do with the time of the year, I am not sure. If I had realised you could do this tour on jet skis that would have been the way to go and would have been heaps of fun.
There is a lot of getting on and off the boat with no assistance from the crew, no tour guide only the boatman with so so English, no amenities on the first island and be warned that the steps to the lake on pregnant maiden island are steep and very slippery. This tour felt very unorganised and we were left waiting at the dock for an hour and a half prior to departing and were again kept waiting for our return transport, maybe we just got caught on a bad day but no-one at the company's tour desk would give us the time of day let alone listen to our concerns. The eagles however were magnificent and by far the highlight of the trip!
Bus for pick up falling apart. no instructions in English just gestured to put a life jacket on. Not a tour! Involved in race to get to the pregnant lady lake - no instructions or insight. Just the words 1 hour. 2nd stop left on a dirty island for 1 .5 hrs. Frustrated and left feeling robbed!
