Boats leave 365 days a year and are scheduled to take two hours and 45 minutes to three hours to cover the roughly 100 kilometre distance between Penang and Langkawi islands.

Langkawi Ferry Services fleet of high-speed boats can travel at speeds of between 32 and 38 Knots.

However, during rough seas, trips can take a bit longer and the trip can be rather unpleasant on this fairly long boat trip (making quite a few people seasick).

During these rough weather times (usually around the months of September, October and November) you may want to think about taking a shorter ferry trip from either Kuala Kedah to Langkawi or Kuala Perlis to Langkawi.

You can get to either of these ports by taking the ferry over to the mainland to Penang Sentral, then taking a bus to Kuala Perlis (the most direct route) or a bus or train to Alor Setar for transfers to Kuala Kedah, or a train to Arau for transfers to Kuala Perlis.
