Langkawi’s archipelago is comprised of 99 islands (104 at low tide!) with towering limestone cliffs, tropical rain forest, coral reefs and deserted beaches. To appreciate this beauty even more, an offshore excursion is just the ticket. Exploration of those outer islands and the views from the sea can be experienced with day or sunset cruises
and they are a lot more affordable than most people realize.
Tropical Charters of Langkawi offers day and sunset cruises that are not only reasonably priced, the memories will indeed be priceless. Tropical Charters‘
55′ catamaran Seasation is just the vessel for your introduction into the world of offshore cruising.
As you board Seasation from the dock at Porto Awana the crew is on hand for assistance as you gain your sea legs and will put even the most first-time-on-a-boat-land-person at ease. On a sunny afternoon the upper deck is a bird’s eye view of the surrounding vista or the comfy lounging mats on the foredeck beckon the sun lovers. Even with the maximum capacity of 60 people on board this large vessel never feels crowded and
you’ll find the perfect spot to call your own.
Once the Captain orders the lines cast off, the crew comes around to offer beverages of choice; cocktails, beer, wine, juice or soft drinks. Passengers have already settled into ‘cruise control’ comfort as the Seasation glides past the harbor entrance into the main channel towards the setting sun. An easy and effortless introduction to cruising the islands is what this adventure is all about as well as a chance to see some spectacular
As Seasation enters the calmer and the more protected outer island channel the crew launches a large rope net behind the boat to create what has become known as the ‘Saltwater Jacuzzi’. The net is slowly pulled through the water as the boat continues its journey in amongst the islands. Even for the more faint at heart the crew is always on hand to assist you in and out of the net!
The aroma of the barbeque wafting through the galley is the perfect addition to the sunset cruise experience, as Seasation turns her bow turns to the western horizon with the sun slowly makes its sunset decent. The Captain announces that dinner is on and yes dinner is on! A huge spread of Satay, Chicken and Prawns hot from the grill, Beef Rendang, Salads, Nasi Goreng and a variety of noodle dishes such as Mee Goreng Mamak are spread out on the long buffet counter in the main cabin ‘family’ style.
After the last remnants of the meal are cleared away platters of fresh fruit are brought around as the beat of the music from lower cabin’ speakers creates a floating dance party Tropical Charters style. And for those who don’t have ‘dance fever’ the upper deck and front of the boat offer a respite from the often lively crowd within.
Sea air, good food, beautiful tropical islands drifting by as the sun sinks as a fiery red globe beneath waves. The Red Sky at night is indeed a sailor’s delight and reaffirms that Langkawi’s archipelago is truly paradise.
