What a tremendous day! Boarded the Sea-link vessel at the Barracks Jetty in the CBD. Great ride down the Swan River and plenty to see with a running commentary, stopping at Fremantle to pick up passengers. The run across to Rottnest Island was calm and very enjoyable, plenty of seating and prompt. Arrived at Rottnest Island and onto the bus tour around the island with a friendly driver. Plenty of opportunities to take photos and information was forthcoming. Many beautiful bays for swimming and places for eating and drinking. All catering to many budgets. The furry Quokkas are just adorable and remain my highlight. A day to relax and take in amazing sites and heritage, maybe even a whale or two passing through. Walk , cycle or bus, Loved it.

Took the Quokka 1 ferry with Sealink over to Rottnest, friendly staff. Then a guided bus tour with Bayseeker for 1hr 45mins. The driver/guide was knowledgeable and friendly. Had 2 short stops along the way where we could get out and take photos. Tour was just the right length, got back to the settlement in time for lunch then caught the earlier ferry home. Again ferry staff were friendly, even gave out ice blocks for the trip home. Highly recommend.

100% recommend to go to Rottnest Island by bike. You can choose between different bike rides to explore the island. Instead of sitting in a bus, grab your bike, be active and enjoy the sun & stunning views.

Very convenient, covered all the important locations and activities. Great for someone who wants to experience hassle free in a short time.

Hotel pick up on time, easy to plan and enjoyed our time on Rottnest. Will use them again.
