Whoever said “you can’t buy paradise” clearly never tried sailing around the crystal blue waters of Rottnest Island on the deck of a big ol’ sun-bathed catamaran. This is a slice of paradise you can legitimately dive straight into, snorkel included.
Here’s the deal: You take off on an afternoon cruise exploring coastal waters and wildlife so picturesque you’ll think you’re dreaming. But it’s not a dream, Rottnest Island really is just that beautiful. For 3.5 hours, sail to otherwise unreachable, secluded bays that look like an untouched Eden from above the water, and a vibrant marine city that could be straight out of Finding Nemo from below.
You’ll soak up some sun and sea salt while sailing out from Thompsons Bay, before dropping anchor at your own tucked away swimming spot. The Rottnest Island waters will be your private playground and there is plenty to do: you can swim, snorkel, stand up paddle board, kayak, or splash up a storm jumping off the bow.
Alternatively, if you’re vibing a more chill time on the water, you can make one of the floating bean bags your aquatic throne for the afternoon, or claim a hammock and kick back with a drink. BYO drinks are welcome, so plan ahead. The sailing crew will sort you out with whatever activity you feel like, plus a delicious afternoon tea to keep you going.
While it’s a lot of fun chasing Quokka selfies and exploring on foot, Rottnest Island is a marine wonderland that you can’t fully appreciate with your feet planted on the shore. So, step aboard and see it for yourself.
