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...

Langkawi has 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 seahorses. See photos

These divesites are only 10-20min away from Cenang and Langkawi Scuba is the divecenter that found these sites in 2014. Read more about how we discovered these sites..

The Visibility

Let’s face it, Langkawi is not known for crystal clear water. Visibility is usually only 2-4m, but 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.

With limited visibility in Langkawi we don't want you to be worried about losing your buddy. And because we would like to be able to show you all the amazing creatures, we  dive with only 2 divers per PADI instructor, give comprehensive safetybriefings and we use buddy-lines.

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


At the moment the government allows only fully vaccinated people to participate in diving activities. Our staff is fully vaccinated.

In line with government SOP and PADI recommendations, we follow safety-procedures like physical distancing where possible and sanitation of equipment after each use.

If applicable, please inform yourself of the risk of diving after Covid19 and have your physician clear you for scuba diving before your dive-trip. Download medical statement here.


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.
