Tropical Charters Helps Tourists Navigate the Pristine Waters of Langkawi

Langkawi, Kedah (Malaysia) – October 5, 2017 ( – Tropical Charters came to be when businessman Dato’ Alexander Issac decided he would share his passion for sailing by starting a charter yacht company in Langkawi and offering cruises to tourists, locals and foreign alike.

Tourists seeking an experience to remember Langkawi by are now able to experience the Unesco-endorsed Geopark from the unlikeliest of places – while sitting in a net, trawled through the pristine waters of the Andaman Sea.

The company offers a relaxing Day Cruise, where guests aboard the boats are taken out to open water, where they can tan in the sun, then take a refreshing dip in the cool waters right off the edge of the boat. Freeflow of food and drinks, as well as a delicious barbecue on a private beach is part of the package.

The Sunset Cruises, however, remain a favorite among guests. Amidst a party-like atmosphere, a giant net is released into the water where guests are encouraged to sit in and relax, while they are pulled through the water from the boat in what Tropical Charters quite aptly calls the ‘Salt Water Jacuzzi’. A Sunset Cruise is of course not complete without guests gasping with amazement at the splendor of nature when they feast their eyes upon the myriad colors in the dusk sky.

Undoubtedly, Unesco’s endorsement of Langkawi as a Geopark – older than even the Himalayas – has driven tourism up several notches on the island. The island’s natural flora and fauna is a sight to behold. Naturally, Tropical Charters incorporates Langkawi’s natural offerings to guests who go for the cruises.

“Tropical Charters places an emphasis on preserving Langkawi’s natural heritage. We try our best to drive education about the importance of preserving the island natural assets through our Langkawi Geopark Educational Cruise Programme,” said Sasha Arsheela, Managing Director of the charter company.

The company was launched by the current Deputy Prime Minister of Malaysia in 2009 and from one catamaran we have grown to 7 yachts. Tropical Charters is also a registered Langkawi Yachting Entity as well as a registered Langkawi International Yacht Registry agent for the Marine Department of Malaysia. In 2016 the company won the prestigious Langkawi International Tourism Award, and was presented the award by the Prime Minister of Malaysia.

Tropical Charters Langkawi set up a One Stop Centre wherein all displays and selling material are digital and guests are allowed to use the one stop centre as a lounge to relax and plan their holiday activities.

In 2013, Tropical Charters expanded and started ferry services from Kuah Jetty in Langkawi to Koh Lipe in Thailand , which have since become a popular route for local and foreign travellers visiting Langkawi. They have also set up a lounge at the Kuah Jetty for travellers who wish to use their facilities whilst waiting for their ferries.

What started out as a charter company has now become a one stop Destination Management Centre with its expertise in all on ground logistics and services in Langkawi, Malaysia. With their travel agency license Tropical Charters is making Langkawi a popular Destination amongst MICE and Luxury Wedding clients.

With a staff of 60 and growing the main aim of Tropical Charters is to provide the best experience to our guests.
