Pulau Payar (Payar Island)

An unforgettable trip to Pulau Payar (Payar Island) Marine Park. The island is surrounded by well—protected coral reefs with abundant and colourful tropical marine life, it is one of the most beautiful and exotic marine parks in Malaysia.

The air cond ferry took us almost 2 hours from Penang Swettenham pier to reach Pulau Payar.

During my trip, I miss this picture, have to download from net, this was the huge Reef Platform that hosts the tourists, where the snorkelling & diving activities were carried out here. In front is the glass bottom boat

On the reef platform, all the snorkeling equipments were provided.

Fins & life jacket as well

Person in charge briefing on the day itinerary.

Look at those friendly fishes… can’t wait to jump in

Get ready now

Here we go swimming with the Nemo & Dori

On the other hand, the dive master was giving introduction to the new divers, looks at the oxygen tanks, those were heavy stuff, I shall fall behind if it piggy rides on my back.

This is the entry to meet Mermaid

This picture was taken in the underwater chamber, with the diving gears on, nobody can tell who you are, and you can actually tell your friends that this is you diving
A ‘so so’ Buffet lunch was provided on the Platform, and rides on the glass bottom boat was not as fun as snorkeling.

I shall return to Pulau Payar, not for the photos taking, but to enjoy snorkeling throughout.
