With Fremantle accommodation pickups, or the option of meeting at B Shed, Victoria Quay, Fremantle for a 9:30 am departure, you’ll hop aboard either the Star Flyte Express Ferry, Eagle Express or the MV Sea Eagle Express and head towards Rottnest. The ferries used for the trip across the rough ocean have been specially designed for the local conditions, meaning you’ll feel secure and comfortable along this attractive sea course.
Once on Rottnest Island, you can visit the hire shop and pick up some hire snorkelling gear (own expense). The island is locally famed for its amazing dive sites, full of a variety of spectacular sea life. Some of the recommended diving areas include Kitson Point, the Parker Point Promontory, the West End or North Point, where visibility is at a maximum and plenty of sea life and thriving limestone coral reefs in amongst the shipwrecks and calm bays.
Once you start your self-guided bike tour of the island and its 63 gorgeous beaches and bays, you’ll realise just how much this amazing little place has to offer. There’s a number of historical locations, including military relics, old buildings and a museum to learn about it all. Then there’s a plethora of scenic sites, such as Lomas Cottage, the Pilot Boat House and Oliver Hill. The West End boardwalk is a fantastic spot for taking a stroll in – offering a vantage point to see the lush flora and hidden fauna – maybe including a quoll or two.
You can chuck in a fishing line and try to catch your lunch, or just enjoy a quiet picnic under some cool trees lining the beach, before jumping in for a swim. When you’ve decided you have had enough for one day (if that’s even a possibility), you can head back to the jetty and catch the 4:25 pm ferry back to the mainland, which returns to Fremantle at around 5 pm.
