snorkel tour

What to expect

– Our tour departs at 10am, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays. You’ll need to meet at the Fuel Jetty in Thomson Bay 15-minutes before your booked departure time to collect any rental equipment you need for the tour.

– The fun begins when you step onboard our custom-built snorkelling vessel, a very stable and comfortable ride! As we cruise the shallow bays of Rottnest, our crew will share some fascinating stories and insights about Rottnest, so you can learn more about the island on your way out to the first snorkelling site. 

– You’ll have two sessions of 45-minutes in the water, both guided by our qualified in-water snorkel guides, who carry additional flotation aids for less confident snorkelers to use. We also have flotation vests and pool noodles to use if desired. In between your snorkelling sessions, there will be light refreshments served as we relocate the boat to your second snorkelling site. 

– A short cruise back to the jetty will have you back on dry land and ready to finish your day at Rottnest Island within 3-hours of your departure time.
