Ferry service Penang <-> Langkawi

Mostly we travel by flight or taking ferry from Kuala Kedah to Langkawi. Not a lot of us will think of taking the ferry from Penang to Langkawi or vice versa. If you are a person who likes to take a ferry instead of flight, do check out this ferry service. The ticket fare is RM68.10 (adult) and RM53.10 (child). It is inclusive port handling charge of RM8.10/pax/way.
They only have three trips per day either you are departing from Langkawi or Penang. One of the trip is via Pulau Payar which means they will stop by Pulau Payar. The whole journey takes about 2 hours 45 minutes highly depending on the sea condition. The ferry is big and stable enough to withstand high wave. You will not have a feeling of sea sick at all. It is comfortable and their air-con can be pretty cold too. They will play a movie for you to watch through out your wavy journey. At Langkawi, you purchase your ticket at Kuah Jetty.
While at Penang, your ticket can be purchased from Swettenham Pier. Honestly, the ticket price is quite expensive but it is a good choice if you do not like to buy flight ticket in advance. Furthermore, it is a good experience for your kids too! They will definitely enjoy the ride. There are no such ferry service in the Peninsular Malaysia except Penang and Kuala Kedah which is heading only to Langkawi.
