Ferry to Langkawi

"This Ferry goes fast. You are in a kind of airplane seat setting. Not super comfortable, but it only takes 3 hours from Penang to Langkawi. We had beautiful weather, so the boat was very quiet on the water. We were very guided and also on board with the suitcases went very well. OK! They are stacked on top of each other, but there is not much space either. The toilet is not recommended, but upon arrival at Langkawi there is an opportunity again. I don't know what it is like in bad weather, but fine in good weather."


The ferry to Langkawi departs from the Swettenham Pier in Georgetown. This is close to Beach Street, Weld Quay, Clock Tower and Esplenade. Daily there are two ferry services from Penang to Langkawi.
Departure times are at 08.15 am and 08.30 am. The latter ferry is going via Pulau Payar. The duration of the trip is approximately 2 hours 30 minutes.

The Langkawi ferry departs from Swettenham Pier which technically is at Weld Quay, but you enter the departure lounge from King Edward Place which is next to Fort Cornwallis and very near the Clock Tower at Beach Street.

The ferry tickets are not sold at the ferry terminal.

"The ferry to Langkawi is comfortable enough. There are two areas where you can sit in air-conditioned comfort, one in the main sitting area downstairs where it seemed all western tourists had to go, and another smaller area above. Just outside the smaller air-conditioned space was a VIP area, we're not sure how many more those tickets were or what extras they offered, but when we looked through the door's hazy window, there weren't too many people sitting there.
The top deck of the ferry was very clean and there were all oversized and carry-on bags for the duration of the trip. These are times when we're glad we only take carry-on sized bags wherever we go because when bags are placed on a ferry, they are generally just tossed into a nicely disorganized pile. This ferry company has added at least a tarpaulin to cover the bags in case they get wet from rain or the sea.
Our tips for the ferry ride from Penang to Langkawi include making sure you have eaten breakfast before boarding and having a snack or two and some water to avoid getting hungry or thirsty during your trip. There is no cafe on board to supply you with these things, so if you are rushing straight to the ferry without food, you are out of luck.
Bring some toilet paper too with you. Better still, don't try to go to the bathroom if you can because the toilets weren't that great. "
