The Langkawi Divesites
A short boat ride takes you from our divecenter on Cenang beach to the beautiful 99 small islands of Langkawi. (not Payar)
Our divesites: The Stables, Tanjung Intan, Razorreef, Cepu, Beras Laut, White Coral Corner. Read more about these sites...
They are great places to see beautiful colorful soft-corals, anemones with clownfish, lionfish, razorfish and frogfish. A school of barracudas is hanging out and we have spotted colorful nudibranches, whipcoralshrimps, pipefish and very often we see seahorses. See photos
Let’s face it, Langkawi is not known for crystal clear water. Visibility is usually only 2-4m, however, we love diving here! Because the soft-corals and fish are very colorful there is plenty to see. And there are days that we are lucky and do get 5m+ visibility.
Because we would like to be able to show you all the amazing creatures, we dive with only 2 divers per PADI instructor, so in stead of worrying about losing your buddy, just worry about enjoying yourself.

Emergency oxygen and a first aid kit are always on our boat. And of course we will bring spare equipment, just in case.

You take care of that you love, and we love Langkawi beaches and the reefs around them. So, we reduce and re-use, do beachclean-ups and splash for trash dives, and we will watch your hands and fins while diving so that the coral doesn't get damaged. Read more about our efforts here...
From October till May the water around Langkawi is flat, this is the diveseason. From June to September the west-monsoon sometimes makes the waves too big for us to go diving, it also rains often and the water will be brown and it is not safe or fun to go diving. At that time we will be closed.
