The Langkawi Divesites


A short boat ride takes you from Cenang beach to the beautiful softcoral reefs of Langkawi.

Divesites like The Stables and Tanjung Intan are great places to see beautiful colorful soft-corals, anemones with clownfish, lionfish, razorfish and frogfish.

A school of barracudas is hanging out at Pulau Cepu and we have spotted colorful nudibranches, whipcoralshrimps, pipefish and seahorses at Whitecoral Corner.

These divesites are only 10-20min away from Cenang and Langkawi Scuba is the only divecenter that dives on 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 only dive with only 2 divers per PADI instructor.

The Dive Trip

After checking your equipment and the dive-brieving at our beach shop at 9am, we leave on our boat for our first dive of the day. If your air-consumption allows, we can stay 1 hour under water. The surface interval will be on one of the beautiful beaches of the islands of Langkawi, we will bring coffee/tea and some local snacks. After our second dive we get back to Cenang around 1:30pm. In high-season, when the weather is good, there will be an optional 3rd dive in the afternoon.



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 only dive with only 2 divers per PADI instructor and we use buddy-lines.

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

Covid-19: In line with government SOP and PADI recommendations, we follow safetyprocedures like social distancing where possible and sanitation of equipment after each use. Please understand that for safety it is sometimes necessary to have direct physical contact either under water or on the surface.

Our Season


From October till May the water around Langkawi is flat. In June to September the monsoon makes the waves too big for us to go diving, the water will be brown and we will not be able to take the boat out. Only poolsessions and theory will be available.

PADI Limited Visibility Diver Specialty Course


Diving in clear water is great, seeing as far as 30-40m, looking at the big pelagic animals swimming by. But did you know that there are places with incredible marine life (like Langkawi!) that do not have that amazing visibility?

There are incredible creatures and beautiful reefs living in waters where you can see just a few meters in front of you. You might think that diving these places is too difficult; what if you bump into something, what if you lose your buddy, what if you get disorientated?

The goal of the Limited Visibility Diver Specialty course is to show divers they can enjoy diving in limited visibility, while learning skills like the use of buddylines and navigating like a pro.


After a theory session and a thorough briefing you will do 2 dives at the divesites of Langkawi. During both these dives you will learn practical skills for diving in limited visibility. After completion you will receive a PADI certification.

Duration: 1 day (2 dives)

For who: any certified diver

Included:  Course materials, PADI certification fee, equipment rental, coffee/tea and snacks in the surface interval.

Price: RM 490



We dive with max 2 divers per PADI instructor and we only take 6 people on our boat; to make sure you have a spot, it is recommended to book in advance. A deposit is required.

If you have to answer YES, then get the form signed by a physician to make sure you are fit for diving.
