The conservation is amazing. You get to go very close to the orang-utans. Even with the fence in-between, it was a wonderful experience. The tour begins with a 15 min boat ride to the island, followed by a ~30min tour. We were told whether the orang-utans were engaging depending on their moods of the day. But we were lucky enough to see 5 of the 17 (?)orang-utans on the island. Three of them got up close and person with us. The mom was in a foul moon and she even spit at my camera when I pointed it too close. Lol. Overall, a fantastic experience. And with COVID in the past couple years, they seems to be in rough shape financially. Please do visit and help them out.

Drove there today. It was easy to drive there from Penang. From Batu Ferringhi we left at 8am and got there at 9:40 just in time for the first ferry. First ferry is at 9:45. You drive into the resort and walk through the resort to the ferry dock. At the ferry dock you buy tickets for the Orang Utan island. Ticket includes ferry there and back and the island ticket. There's a small shop on the island selling tshirts that my kids liked. And some snacks. As we pulled up to dock at the island we could see small orangutans and a couple larger ones playing in the trees. As soon as we got off we could see some large orangutans playing and eating at a platform in the water near the boat dock. The guide quickly started us on our walk along the path into the habitat. She was wonderful and very knowledgeable and answered lots of questions for us. We saw 10 of the 17 orang utans living there. Several close up. We dropped apples down a tube into their cage and they were excited to grab them and have some fruit. We watched one guy drink milk poured into his mouth from a worker and we watched the alpha male tear open a coconut and eat it and slurp the coconut water. The little ones were really cute. We LOVED this place and my 3 teenagers said it was totally worth waking up "early" and driving 1.5 hours to see the orang utans. It is an awesome place. Definitely go!!!!
