  • Description
    • Sail the crystal waters of Rottnest Island 
    • Access beautiful secluded bays otherwise unreachable by foot
    • Swim, snorkel, stand up paddle board or kayak off the deck

    Experience the magic of Rottnest Island by Luxury Sailing Catamaran. Sail through stunningly beautiful bays then dive right in to a snorkeler’s paradise!

    Anchored in at the island’s top snorkel spots, our catamaran “Capella” can get right in close to shore. This luxury catamaran is fitted with snorkel equipment and loads of water toys for maximum fun both on and under the water. Discover up to 400 different species of fish, coral, shells and sea grass that lie beneath. Keep an eye out for dolphins, stingrays, sea birds and the curious Australian Sea Lion. With a population of just 15,000 and found only on the WA coastline, these little guys are an absolute joy to watch as they flip and somersault through the water.

    The huge cargo net is awaiting any takers! Or simply kick back and relax on the comfortable trampolines up front, or large rear seated deck. Rottnest Island has so much more to offer than just quokka selfies! Let us show you a perspective you won’t get staying on land.

    This experience runs for 2.5 - 3 hours depending on conditions on the day. Please allow 3 when booking a return ferry.

    This experience is part of our Low-Footprint Adventures range because it’s ECO certified by Ecotourism Australia.
