Full disclosure, I think this was the favorite thing we did in Langkawi. When I was looking for activities, I knew we wanted to do something on a boat, seeing the other islands. I happened upon Captain Eva’s website via another blog. What luck!
First off, it was a little challenge to get to this excursion. Many of the tours provide transportation, but this one did not. Our hotel concierge was concerned about “traffic” in the main city of Kuah and advised us to leave early. Apparently there was a cycling tour on the island. We got a taxi and away we went to the other side of the island. Langkawi is a little bit of a sailing paradise. It’s windy, but protected. There are 2 yacht clubs on the island. We were to meet our boat at the Royal Langkawi Yacht club, where our captain had her own pool bar!
We met with Captain Eva and got ready for our cruise. Avery took a quick swim in the pool. We come to find out, we’re the only ones on the cruise that night. Yay for us! Captain Eva is fascinating. She’s German and left Germany at the age of 38 to sail around the world. She came to Langkawi for 2 weeks and has been here ever since. She’s actually trying to sell her business if anyone’s interested…
We came back to the pool bar where Captain Eva was “attending to her business”. She invited us to stay for a drink (which would have been amazing and fun) but we had tired little monkeys and a 45 minute grab ride. Sadly we headed back to the hotel.
Sometimes you do things you know you will remember always. For me, this was one of those things.
