A fantastic day out and tour! I loved the island and wish I could stay longer. The cycling was great, however we didn’t really take advantage of the snorkelling gear.

We were a group three girls in our late 20’s / early 30’s with average fitness levels (maybe slightly lower)

The weather conditions were perfect for cycling. We started off the day with cycling the coast to Cape of York and stopping for a break before heading back using the Defence road, then Digby Drive passing through the lakes.

We had lunch at the Rottnest Lodge. We had a pleasant surprise to find that lunch was included in the tour price as we didn’t realise this before boarding the boat. Brilliant added bonus.
Lunch was very nice. It was a small buffet that was fairly busy which meant that the food was constantly fresh.
The staff were excellent. One waiter bought beef to our table so we didn’t have to wait for it and a waitress took us to an area in the lodge were it was guaranteed to find quokkas as we hadn’t seen them yet.

In the afternoon we cycled to Parker point. This seemed a bit more strenuous which could be because it seemed a little hillier or because we had heaps to eat at lunch.
On the way back we stopped for a quick drink at Hotel Rottnest, which had an awesome outside area that overlooks the water.

The process of collecting and returning the bikes and snorkelling gear was too easy.
Most of the bikes seemed rusty, which isn’t really a surprise considering the amount they get sprayed with salt water of the ferry. My bike made a slight squeaking noise as I cycled, but wasn’t too bad. A lot of the bikes didn’t locked, but by the end of the day no one was locking them anyway.

I loved Rottnest and I would like to stay longer on the island. Definitely worth a visit!
I thought that this tour was a very well organised way to get there.

Very good trip and thoroughly enjoyed it. I picked up the ferry from Perth City - do be warned its a long trip to Rottnest from there, we were on the boat at 8.30 and it was gone 11 by the time we got to Rottnest, so do be prepared to spend a long time travelling if you pick the boat up from the city. The alternative is to get the boat at Fremantle. Lovely cycle round the island, although my 70 year old mother found the hills hard! The beaches were beautiful and the quokkas were seriously cute. A really good day out.

Rottnest Island is amazing! Due to high tides, we bused from central Perth to Freemantle where we boarded the express boat. The boat ride was uneventful and comfortable. Bicycles were ready on the pier and I quickly embarked on a lovely tour of the island. I believe it's about 18km around and is generally fairly flat. I made a point of stopping at every lookout and point of interest. The day was beautiful, the water was crystal clear and every beach was amazing. The entire ride took approximately3 hours at a very leisurely pace.

Very enjoyable day at Rottnest Island. Ferry from Perth to the island was comfortable and informative- with lots of historical facts and trivia and bike / snorkel rental process was very easy. Island itself has stunning scenery and the beaches are top notch. If riding a bike make sure you take plenty of water with you. Definately one of those experiences that is a "must do" whilst visiting Perth!

great day out, bike not the best but fine for drifting around the island. Ferry air conditioned which was a relief from 40C temp. Would recommend taking own food to avoid high prices in island shops. Beaches gorgeous and well worth paying the extra for snorkel

The bikes aren't in the best shape due to the hordes of tourists using them on a daily basis. Getting around Rottnest is easy enough, but be aware, there are some hills to ride up! Food and beverage is available but naturally prices are high on the island.

It was a great day out for kids and to my surprise I enjoyed it too. The Jet boat wildlife tour was excellent. Our guide on the boat took the trouble to tell us alot about the island and the wildlife and get us as close to the animals as possible without being intrusive. I think a day is not enough to do the island justice but it was a great introduction to the island. The snorkelling off the Basin was not up to expectation only because the water was a bit murky that day. We are Asians and still thoroughly enjoyed the version of "curry " at the lodge. The bikes and snorkelling gear were in excellent condition.

Great fun for my teenage children, the bikes where in good condition and have gears which is handy for the hills. You have to bring your own packed lunch or get it in the restaurants in the town. The Snorkelling was not great as it was a rough day and the sea was muddy. You did the tour on your own with a map given when you get your tickets.

We had a great day. The ferry trip was informative. The push bikes where in good condition. Morning and afternoon tea was basic but did the job and wine tasting was ok. The 20min tour on arrival didnt happen. Organised our own lunch.

it was an enjoyable trip.
the island is huge, it is difficult to have a whole look by biking and will get too tired.
recommend who will go there buy bus ticket to have a look.
the quakka(mice) was not anywhere, can be only see by chance

This was a really great day, the only exception was the bikes - there is no back holder or basket to put items in. This was made OK by the fact there was onsite lockers, however might consider looking in to having some fitted for choice.
Commentary and trip over was amazing, Rottnest Island is lovely and it was a clear day!
