What You Can Expect
When you arrive, embark on your 1.5-hour wildlife cruise that takes you around the island’s many isolated bays and beaches, where you can watch for sea life like dolphins, seals and birds. After your cruise, you are free to spend the afternoon at your leisure to explore the island however you wish. Perhaps rent a bike to travel down the car-free roads, go swimming or snorkeling in the turquoise water, or search for quokkas, the small marsupials who live on the island. (Activities, entrance fees, rentals, food and drinks are at your own expense.) If you select the lunch option when booking, head to Rottnest Lodge for your included meal.
Maybe visit one of the historical attractions to learn about the heritage of Rottnest, which was discovered by Dutch explorers in the 1600s and has since been home to shipwrecks, an Aboriginal penal colony and an internment camp. Today, as an A-class nature reserve, it’s beloved for its tranquil atmosphere, rustic charm and minimal development.
When your time on Rottnest is up, return to Fremantle or Perth by ferry.
This was a great day. Enjoyed the ride down the Swan River. Didn't really know we were getting on an adventure boat tour. But it was fun and thankful they gave us spray jackets. Saw some seals and an osprey. Rottnest Island is a place you shouldn't miss if visiting Perth. Like going back in time!!! Love there are only bicycles and scooters on the island.
Perfect easy to order on line, very professional service at the port. We all felt very special. I would recommend it to all my friends.
This IS My Favorite place in the world!!!

Fabulous. Adventure tour worth every penny. So much wildlife to see a really great couple,of hours. Too many highlights to,mention xx
Great trip there and back. The wildlife cruise was spectaculary - dolphins, birds, new zealand fur seals, Australian sea lion, and amazing scenery. A must do.
The boat round the Island was good seeing the wildlife with a knowledgeable guide, island itself is interesting especially the Quokka's
Loved the wildlife cruise! It was great for my kids and my mother. Luckily it was a calm day when we were there - I can see where it wouldn't be good on a windy day.
A wonderful day.
Great day out. Wildlife cruise excellent!
This was absolutely brilliant. I only wished the Ferry back from the island left later. Still there is time for a cycle and swim in the ocean.
