Malaysia East Coast Cruise 2005 (6 June - 30 September) Back to Valhalla's Adventures
Our fifteen week cruise up and down the east coast of Peninsular Malaysia is shown here.
We had some great sails and some miserable ones. We covered 924 NM during the cruise.
Eight 'Sumatrans' gave us some thrills and chills but we feel fortunate to have encountered that many with no lightning strikes (as other yachts have experienced in these waters) and only the loss of one dinghy oar and seat.
The number of turtles you see in these waters is heartening. The diving, especially at Pulau Tenggol, was excellent. The snorkeling was also excellent.
Previous yachts have reported an abundance of government installed moorings. The 'orange balls' were only found at Pulau Aur and then a resort (Bluewater Holidays) attempted to get RM25 per night usage fee from another yacht sailing with us there. Otherwise we found moorings that were used by fishing boats on a 'first come first served' basis with no problems.
Was it worth it? YES!!!
