Better than jet skiing
Kayaking with Mr Farly was the best experience me and my husband had in Langkawi. Mr Farly is such a great guy and guide. The tour was educational and super fun. Mr Farly also went above and beyond by taking great photos for us throughout, so we didn’t have to worry about doing that ourselves. We also saw bats and learnt about caves, etc. If you get the option of doing the advanced kayaking tour, go for it! We went out to sea in choppy waters and it was a tiring but completely worthwhile experience. Thanks Mr Farly!
Best Experience in Langkawi
One of the best experiences we've had at Langkawi. Went through the Mangroves, had fresh fish at the floating restaurant, and also went out to the open sea in our Kayaks. We done Jet skiing a few days prior to this, and I can confirm that this is definitely more exhilarating, since you have a more personal experience with the tour guide. Mr Farly is very knowledgeable about the the Mangroves and his life experiences are also interesting. He is also very funny!
Without doubt the best thing to do at Langkawi, definitely recommended!
Mr. Farly is a legend! The trip was absolutely amazing! We had an amazing time, with great guidance, great jokes, plenty of breaks and rest stops. We even stopped on a wonderful remote beach for a swim halfway through.
Cannot recommend this activity enough! Absolutely worth it!
Trip Highlight, a must do for your stay in Langkawi

Kayaking through the Mangroves with Farly was one of the highlights of our travels through Malaysia. From start to finish, the experience was perfect and Farly was an absolutely amazing guide. We reached out to book via the form on his Weebly site and coordinated over Whatsapp to schedule and were lucky enough to be able to book for the next day (note the price on Tripadvisor is correct and the price on his website is currently out of date). As the agenda states, we started with the bat caves where Farly gave us an interesting and educational walkthrough of the mangroves and bat caves, pointing out other interesting creatures such as bees and crabs. We then took a boat ride to the floating fish farm and kayaked out from there. In addition to providing interesting facts and conversation throughout the kayaking trip, Farly also took many photos of us to be able to remember the trip by!
Some practical tips:
- He states it in his trip details but it's worth noting that you really will get very wet and so bringing a change of clothes for your ride home is essential
- I brought a small backpack for our clothes and towel etc.. and was able to leave this bag at the fish farm so I only needed to pack our valuables in the dry bag
- Farly did bring a nice dslr camera with him to take any closer shots of animals or scenic photos we came across. As a result, I would recommend not taking your own fancy camera so you can focus on the experience of kayaking. (I did bring my phone though in one of the phone cases that you can hang on your neck and grabbed a couple shotes)
- We stayed in Pentai Cenang and had no trouble getting a Grab there and back. Farly also waited for us to get a confirmed ride back before he left to ensure we did not get stranded
- For footwear, we wore flip flops and that was fine but water shoes would definitely be better if you have them
To summarize, Farly was an absolutely amazing host and this tour is a must do during your time in Langkawi. I can't recommend Farly enough!!
TL;DR from my boyfriend: 10 out of 5 experience with a private photoshoot and a humorous guide! Must do!
A great day with a great tour guide! Everyone should do it!
Farly is an amazing tour guide, and just a great guy! He is so friendly and knowledgeable and was quick to respond and let us know exactly what we needed for the day! We saw all the best things! The bat cave, the mangroves, the open sea, the iconic Kilim Geo Park sign and all the animals you could want to - eagles, hawks, monkeys, bats, a snake, fish. On top of that Farly will take some amazing photos of all this for you! I would recommend to everyone! Thank you :)
