There are a few points to get to Langkawi - Penang Port, Kuala Kedah and Kuala Perlis. We choose Kuala Perlis as we have our own vehicle to park and it is also the quickest sea route to Lankawi from land (45 mins). The fee is RM18 for adults and RM13 for child 3 - 12 years old. From the jetty, you can also arrange for accomodation and transportation in the island. Of course this won't be advisable during school holidays and other peak seasons.
Kuala Perlis jetty.
Kimi and the bags. Can see the sea right behind the building.

The waiting area. On the outside you can see vendors selling refreshments - drinks, nuggets, sliced fruits. In the waiting area, there's restroom (quite ok but being Malaysian - there is still wetness and odour) and surau. Outside the jetty, there are stalls selling food and beverages among them the famous Laksa Perlis.. yummy
