Sunset Cruise by Fantastic Tour

Spend an evening floating upon Langkawi's turquoise waters, surrounded by steep-sided islands on this 3-hour sunset cruise. You'll be free to wander around the boat's 3 decks to relax or soak up the sun to the sounds of latest pop tunes.

Once clear of the main island, staff drop a large net at the rear of the boat for guests to climb down and enjoy a "saltwater jacuzzi". The boat's forward motion creates jacuzzi-like ripples in the water to enjoy from inside the net.

Other activities include a photo-stop for selfies with Langkawi's iconic Eagle Square and a karaoke machine. If you're lucky, you may also see native wildlife like dolphins or a white-bellied sea eagle.

Because every party needs a feast, the cruise includes free-flow beer, water and soft drink, and a buffet dinner. Content with a full belly, sit back and watch in awe as the sunset lights up the sky in pink, orange, and yellow hues.
