Due to a warm water current known as the Leeuwin Current, Rottnest Island generally has warmer water temperatures too, ranging from an average of 23°C in summer to 19°C in winter.
We suggest wearing a wetsuit for a number of reasons. You’ll stay warm for the duration of the tour, you’ll have protection from the sun and it helps to float in the water too. Our rental suits are long sleeve and knee length 5mm suits and are available from X-Small to XX-Large sizes.
We have many snorkelling sites all around Rottnest Island and the captain will pick the best site on the morning of your charter based on weather conditions. All our sites are nice and shallow and sheltered in bays.
If you choose to depart from Fremantle, the boat will leave from Port Coogee Marina at the public berth in front of The Coogee Boathouse.
If you choose to depart from Thomson Bay, the boat will leave from the Fuel Jetty at Thomson Bay, just next to the big jetty ferries use. Look for the fuel pumps.
If you choose to depart from Thomson Bay at Rottnest Island, you’ll need to make your way to the island via private boat or public ferry to join our tour.
Otherwise, we also have the option for you to depart from Fremantle to take care of all departures and returns to and from Rottnest Island.
Yes we do! When you book your tour, you will see the family pricing option.
Our in-water snorkel guides are here to help for those who are new to snorkelling. As long as you can swim and feel comfortable in the water – you’re welcome to join.
Our tours have a maximum of 20 people onboard with 3 crew members. In the water you can expect no more than 10 people with each snorkel guide.
Absolutely! We’d love to host your group, contact us and we can talk about the options.
Sure thing! If you’re already at Rottnest Island and looking for something to, jump on and book your tour online. As long as there is availability, you’ll be able to book right up until the departure time.
We don’t do scuba, we just offer snorkelling equipment for hire on our tours.
We don’t have a licence and we often visit protected areas, so crayfishing is not permitted.
