The most unique and memorable way to experience Rottnest island - by water! Sail to stunning bays brimming with local marine life. Swim, Snorkel, SUP or just relax. The perfect way to spend the afternoon.
Experience the magic of Rottnest Island by luxury sailing catamaran! Sail the island's stunning coastline and dive into an underwater paradise, full snorkel gear included. Departing Thomson Bay, enjoy a leisurely sail to a secluded bay, cool down and hold on to the huge cargo net as you're dragged through the water on route. Anchored at the island's top snorkel spots, find over 120 different species of tropical fish, you won't see along the metropolitan coastline. Look out for dolphins and the rare Australian sea lions! Kayaks and SUP boards also available for your use. Enjoy a seasonal fruit platter as you sail back to the jetty in time for the afternoon ferries.
This experience runs for 2.5 - 3 hours depending on conditions on the day. Please allow 3 when booking a return ferry.
No drones. A reasonable degree of fitness and mobility is required for boarding and moving around the boat, as well as accessing the toilet which is located down a small set of stairs. Pregnancy: Expectant guests who are 28-36 weeks pregnant will require medical clearance to board. Unfortunately, we are unable to accommodate anyone over 36 weeks gestation. Depth of water when at anchor varies from 2-5 metres. Anyone unable to swim independently (except in the case of young children who under full assistance from adults) will not be able to undertake swimming or snorkeling, but is welcome to participate in other activities provided they can do confidently and safely.
This cruise runs with group sizes up to 24 people. On rare occasions this number may be slightly higher.
Public departures are subject to weather conditions and minimum numbers. The provider monitors expected conditions well in advance of each tour and charter and will always try to give you as much notice as possible if they deem it too risky to proceed, however the final decision is at the discretion of the skipper on the day. Unexpected weather changes can and do happen, albeit are rare.
Casual attire. Sailing can be a windy and wet experience. It is advisable to bring a windcheater or spray jacket and / or a warm pullover. Shoes with a good grip and preferably a white or light-coloured sole are best. Bare feet on deck. Bring along your bathers and a towel.
Snorkelers must be aged 8+ and be of at least a moderate swimming ability. Snorkeling is only semi-guided - guests do need to be able to swim and explore the reef independently. Children are welcome as part of a family group but must be under direct adult supervision at all times. Children under 10 may be asked to wear a life jacket at all times BYO is permitted providing it is consumed in moderation. We also request that guests refrain from drinking until in-water activities are completed. We operate this tour with a minimum of 6 and a maximum of 24. If minimum numbers are not reached we will contact you with at least 6 hours notice to arrange an alternative date with you. If we are unable to accommodate you on another date we will provide you with a refund.

That’s 10% of the Australian population! When we started ‘doing’ experiences in 2001, Facebook didn’t exist; the iPod had just been invented; John Howard was Prime Minister; and Destiny's Child were popular (yikes!). We’ve been at this business of experiences for quite a while, so put your trust in us to show you a good time.
The RedBalloon Price Guarantee does not apply to experiences involving accommodation or Experience Providers' own conditional sales.
