Perth's Best Snorkeling

If you havent snorkelled at Rottnest Island yet, you’re missing out on some of the best snorkelling Perth (or even Western Australia) has to offer! The warm Indian Ocean around Rottnest Island is an underwater playground, with the Leeuwin Current brining tropical visitors like the green turtle to the marine reserve. You’ll find healthy corals in shades of purple, pink and brown, meadows of seagrass, schooling butterfly fish, and huge colourful lobsters scuttling past. 

Snorkelling here at Rottnest is easy, with so many sheltered and protected bays to explore and coral reefs creating a natural barrier from the swell. 

No two days are ever the same onboard with Rottnest Snorkel, we always choose the best sites for the conditions. The best part about snorkelling from the boat with us is you don’t have to worry about long surface swims or sand to clamber over! 

Bring your own mask, snorkel and fins for the tour or add hire equipment to your tour booking and the Rottnest Snorkel Crew will take care of it for you. 

With snorkelling tours operating on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays, we are here and ready when you are!
