What you can expect
Island Hopping is probably the most popular boat tour in Langkawi and the standard sharing tour starts at 9.00am in the morning and lasts for 3.5 to 4 hours including hotel transfers (Selected Hotel). It covers three spots that includes wonderful scenic islands to the south of the main island of Langkawi (Maiden Island & Bras Basah Island).and eagle feeding where you can watch the marvelous spectacle of many eagles swooping down from the sky to catch their prey on the water.
The two islands offer plenty of activities including swimming in scenic fresh water lake (rental of life jacket approx RM 5), paddle boating (chargeable), snorkeling from soft sandy beach, lounging and sunbathing, or just relaxing and enjoying the stunning scenery all around.
Meet and greet the driver at the Langkawi hotel lobby (As per your package choose) around 0830 - 0900 hours for the pickup to the jetty. You should apply and carry enough sun block lotion to avoid sun burns and also carry bottles of drinking water. Once arrived at the jetty, you will be transferred to the boat and begin the Langkawi island hoping.
Our first stop is the eagle feeding. The boatman will stop the engine and throw some chicken pieces out into the water to invite the eagles. And in no time you will see eagles diving down just next to you and clawing up the chicken pieces and eating them as they soar into the sky.
Next we proceed to Pulau Dayang Bunting which will take about 20 minutes to reach this fascinating island jetty. This is a wonderful scenic fresh water lake surrounded by mountains that are covered with dense forests. The lake was formed when a large underwater cave collapsed many years back. You will also see large limestone formations. From the lake if you look at the mountains at the fringes, you can clearly see an outline of a woman lying on her back who is 6-7 months pregnant, and thus the name of the lake.
Having enjoyed Dayang Bunting island and the lake for about 40 minutes, you will walk back to the island jetty to get back to your boat. The next stop is the island Pulau Singa Besar. The name of the island means “Island of Big Lions”, although there are no lions here. The name was probably given for its shape.
Pulau Beras Basah is the last stop in the tour. You will get about one hour here. So after a tiring day under scorching sun, if you just want to lounge and relax, find one of the many shady trees and enjoy the views as the gentle breeze flows.
