    The Mangrove trip
    We booked a private boat for the mangrove tour of 3 hours. The tour included the Andaman open Sea boat ride / eagle Monkey and Fish feeding, Bat & Crocodile cave. The most i loved was eagle feeding and actual mangrove. We were in awe with the mangroves and imagined the eco-system that thrived below it. The eagle population resides in these mangroves along with the monkeys. It was awsum to see the eagles swoop down to pick their food (chicken pieces) from the water. Another activity included was the fish farm where we met Farida the sting ray fish and Ali the tiger (?) fish. The fish farm itself is a dingy place with compartments made in the sea for different kinds of fishes. I was wondering the amount of food that was being fed to the sting ray with every tourist wanting to feed it ! But overall an excellent trip and worth doing it when in Langkawi.

    A great day out especially for kids
    This is my second visit to the Geoforest park. The first was back in 2017. The good thing is everything is fairly well maintained and you do get a fun half-day to spend among nature, the mangroves, and the eagles. On both trips, we chartered a private boat which allows us some flexibility in stops. The boat driver was quite indulgent this time, intentionally making high-speed turns for the kids! The great part is as part of a UNESCO site, the eagle feeding is now limited to 100g of food so that the eagles do not grow dependent on human feeding and can fend for themselves. We stopped at the private beach which got a bit crowded considering we went on a long-weekend. Sadly though, the Geoforest Park Discovery Center was closed. I feel the center should be at least minimally staffed during daylight hours.

    best trip
    A nice tour on a boat where you get to visit a cave ( on foot) with bats, see lots of monkeys, eagles, other birds and enjoy the nice view. our boat was going really fast sometimes, but another boat with friends didnt because 1 woman was a bit afraid, so they keep that in mind. The tour also follows the coast a bit in the open sea and you get to sim at a beach for a bit.A nice experience that took about 4 - 5 hours. It statrted raining while we were on the open sea, but that even made the experience better because of the fog and the rain in the distance.

    Part of Mangroves Tour
    We did the Mangroves Tour with H.S.A, a professional who made our day. Apart from that tour was eagle feeding where we stopped in the middle of the water surrounded by greenery mountains, monkeys jumping here and there and watching eagles finding their way to the food. The beauty of nature and the ecosystem in this area is awesome. If time allows, I want to spend more and more time watching the beauty of nature.

    Beautiful mangrove cruise
    I had an enjoyable ride on the Faiz 3 boat with 10 other friends. It was an incredible 2-hour cruise passing through mangrove and caves. Our boat man made sure we wore life jackets on the boat and was knowledgable about the places we visited. I enjoyed the eagles the most. Thank you Mr Boatman!

    Must see and make the reservations directly
    ENjoyed the early morning private tour as couple, our boatman was Arif and he made the trip enjoyable by taking pictures and sharing information regarding water level and shooting fish. When we visited the beach, we saw many tour vendors and didn't know which one to pick so decided to go to the official Kilim georforest park website and booked private tour and got a great deal. Two hours trip was good enough for Bat caves, crocodile cave, Andaman sea, Feeding Fish

    It is an wow experience
    Riding a boat in mangrove seas is an amazing experience. The formations of stalagmite and stalagmite are amazing. To go to Gua Cerita or Bat Cave, one needs travel. Kindly stay away from fish company. Even though I'm not vegetarian, the scent of the fish company is intolerable.

    Great Trip Seeing the Sights
    Visited the park as part of a Tui / Marella cruise trip. Amazing day, walked through a bat cave, sped down the river in boat, saw some amazing sights, not a huge amount of wildlife but were treated to monkeys and eagles. Great day and we hit really good with the weather, very clear seeing all the way to Thailand in the distance.

Went with a tour group. Picked up and dropped off at hotel. Nice experience. Lunch provided on the tour very basic.

Views are excellent - a must visit if you are in Langkawi.

Boats have capacity of 10 people for private tour but they did not allow 2 of us to join another group we met there. Money grab operation at Kilim geoforest by the boat operators.
#UNESCO #MalaysiaTrulyAsia

Public boat price as per website is 100RM, but the counter lady wants 150 per person.
DO NOT BOOK AT THE COUNTER AT ALL. PRICES ARE INFLATED.

Book 24 hour in advance with tour operator or with your hotel to get discounted prices. Actual prices for 2 hour is RM 200 full boat private tour.

The scenery is truly breathtaking as we take in the mesmerizing karst formations and the tranquility of the mangrove. However, our experience is marred by certain aspects that are not elderly-friendly, leaving us feeling somewhat deceived given the price we paid for a private boat tour.

Having shelled out RM300 for a 3-hour boat tour for my family of four, which includes my elderly parents, we were assigned to the boat "Farid 3," with a young local boy serving as both the boat operator and guide. The tour promised a 3-hour cruise to explore 2 caves, a fish farm, a beach, and eagle feeding.

Our first stop is the Bat Cave, where we marvel at shell fossils on the cave walls, indicative of the area's underwater past. Next is the so-called "fish farm," a floating facility resembling a restaurant with a few water cages containing fish for our "entertainment viewing" rather than actual commercial farming. After a brief introduction to the fish species, we are encouraged to order lunch, which we decline. We then proceed to the Crocodile Cave, eagle feeding, and a private beach strewn with trash, where we are allowed only a brief 20-minute stop at the beach. The entire trip feels rushed, with the boat speeding without consideration for our elderly parents, resulting in my dad spraining his back during the cruise.

Despite paying for a 3-hour tour, the experience concludes at just 2 hours and 15 minutes, as the operator hastily pushes us to the next point to complete the tour. Our requests to extend our time on the beach are denied, and when we ask to slow down for a more leisurely cruise, the boat speeds up again, hurrying us back to the jetty.

For those seeking a leisurely cruise with a knowledgeable guide to explore the natural wonders of the area, this experience may fall short. The guide, essentially a local boat operator, fails to deliver the advertised 3-hour tour, and it's crucial to prioritize the safety of elderly passengers. The guide's response, stating, "kita tidak tengok jam, kita ikut tempat yang lawat" ("we don't follow the hours, we follow the visiting points"), raises questions about the validity of selling the package based on hours.

This is an interesting motor boat trip on the rivers through the mangrove geoforest park, with various stops into the caves and a fish farm, where one could even stop for a meal. The boat stopped for us to see a large number of eagles swooping into the water to get their feed. We were also taken to the open Andaman sea where you get a good view of the forest looking back. Worth a visit.
