We enjoyed our trip to Rottnest Island. The Wildlife was also interesting although the rough weather did prevent us from going around the complete island. Staff were informative and endeavoured to get us in as close as possible to the features / animals. Overall a great day.
The trip itself was ok, but the wildlife cruise was disappointing. Other than seals, we saw nothing else. The sea was rough and there was nothing really enjoyable. I would have gone for the cycle ride in hindsight.
We really enjoyed our day on Rottnest Island. The wildlife cruise was not what we expected. We saw Seals, Dolphins and a young humpback whale that was entangled in a marker buoy rope. We were not expecting the rough water and speed but it turned out to be a lot of fun. The captain was very knowledgeable and did his best to show us more than we expected.
Weather was just right for an exhilarating eco/wild life circumnavigation of the island. Excellent day.
What a great place Rotnest Island is, we had a most enjoyable day on the island , and the Wildlife tour on the fast cruise boat was exceptional both the skipper and his offsider did a fantastic job this was a highlight of our holiday .
It was an excellent tour with breathtaking scenery! The boat ride was simply awesome. We had a very wonderful and friendly tourguide who topped it all! Highly recommended!
An excellent day out, the island tour in the jet boat was exhilarating and the guides were very experienced in knowing where to find the various wildlife. I would recommend the wildlife cruise if interested in seals etc, but there is not enough time to do this and cycle around the island. Unfortunately in just one day it is necessary to make a choice.
Beautiful island and enjoyed the day very much.
However, a single day doesn't allow enough time to get the best out of the place and so we would look to stay at least a couple of nights next time.
Wonderful. The adventure tour was fantastic. Dolphins galore and sea lions with a very entertaining commentary. Highly recommended!
The wildlife cruise was absolutely amazing, we had a great guide and saw heaps of wildlife that played around right next to the boat!
The lunch buffé was lovely, and the commentary on the ferry on the wat out was very good and informative! A very good day!
Much of the fun was ruined by an incredible amount of fruit flies. It gets to the point were it gets seriously irritating. The guides should have warned us about it, and\or giving us (or at least advice us to buy) 'head nets'.
The speakers on the ferry were not clear enough.
That said, Rottnest is a nice island, and we had fun snorkeling. Quokkas are very charming. :)
Excellent trip, it was helped by the good weather and the wonderful sights while snorkelling off the basin bay. The rib boat tour for the wildlife was very good and we saw seals, seal lions, dolphins and various birds. Lunch was nothing special and probably not worth the extra as Rottnest has many eating places anyway. Quokkas are fab
