Rottnest Island with the crystal clear water and Eco tour Wow whales and the most perfect weather. Lunch at Rottnest Lodge very ordinary would be better if you could go to the hotel and choose what you would like to eat rather than left over stewed food from the Bain Marie.
Excellent cruise to and from Rottnest Island. The Wildlife Cruise at Rottnest was both exciting and great fun - the Skipper was exceptional. This was the highlight of the day. The lunch at the Lodge was terrible. Poor quality food and not properly cook. It was a disgraceful lunch and everyone who took this option on the day complained. The whole trip was very good value but the lunch partially ruined what was a very good day adventure.
Perfect spot for a rest- plenty of local wild life- good lunch at the hotel- excelent commentry on the ship going down the Swan. Did not go on the Wildlife cruise as the sea was too rough for a couple of "oldies". A good day looking at the local area and museum's.
The ferry to Rottnest Island took far too long to get to Rottnest Island - 2 and a half hours almost - due to the constant stops along the way. If we'd known there was an alternative service leaving Fremantle at 7:15 am arriving at Rottnest at 8:00 am, we would have caught that one, rather than arriving later. Arriving at 10:45 am and doing the Eco-cruise for an hour and a half, with the provided lunch taking up the next hour, meant we had limited time to explore the rest of the island before having to go back to Perth. We missed the one and only guided tour being offered to Oliver Hill lookout because of it - the only reason we wanted to come to Rottnest Island. We spent more time travelling to and from Rottnest, than actually on it, which made for a very disappointing day all round. The Eco-tour (Wildlife Cruise) was absolutely fantastic though! If we could have arrived earlier, and done this cruise as part of exploring the island during the day, it would have been better. Would recommended the Wildlife Cruise in a minute - just not this tour in general. Plan your day better so you arrive on the island sooner and have more time to see more of the island, rather than just doing the Wildlife Cruise - Rottnest Island has so much more to offer.
Going through your site we got a top deal ,the 90 min tour around the island was great fun ,fur seals. Lunch at the lodge was lovely,service on the boat was great. Ken and Lisa Gerrard had a top day, thank you we will use this site again and recommend it to our family and friends .
The wildlife cruise was great however I think it should be called "Wild Ride" wildlife cruise. We paid for the meal at Rottnest Lodge- definitely not recommened, worst meal have had in many many years!
Great day, beautiful location and amazing weather. Loved our wildlife cruise but wasn't quite as "wild" as was suggested. Guide and skipper were good. Lunch was ok but would have preferred to eat down near the beach and enjoy the views. Great way to see Rottnest in a day. Good value for money.
We loved the day and would highly recommend giving this a top priority when in Perth
The trip over to Rotternest Island was great 'great weather'. The 'boot scooting' in the fast boat around the Island was something to remember.The food was absolutely salubrious. The museum and all the other sights were excellent. Your part in the enjoyment was without question well organised.
Great little Island, but if we did it again I'd hire a bicycle instead of taking the bus tour.
a MOST WONDERFUL adventure :)......
even if we got heaps more spray on us in the open top deck during the trip back to Perth, than we did on that exhilarating bucket-list trip circumnavigating Rottnest :)
Adveture tour was amazing, best part of th trip!!! The best seats are right up the front. We saw NZ Fur Seals, Baby Sea Lions, Osprey eagles and Dolphins. Bring some sun screen.
My wife and i had a great day,enjoyed going around the island on a adventure boat.A highlight of our holiday.
It was a great day out however the wildlife cruise was not a cruise it was a speed boat trip half way around the island. The skipper was a little rude to us as well.
