Skydive and Transfer Package

Sail around the surrounding bays on the 12.5m catamaran from Charter 1 with a glass of bubbles and antipasto, or choose Rottnest Cruises and enjoy all beverages alongside seafood canapes and the chance to throw a line in to fish while on board the 69ft boat.

Snorkel Tour
Head out to the bays around Rottnest Island and explore the underwater world with Charter 1. On this new tour, you can snorkel, kayak, SUP and ride in the huge cargo net of the 12.5m catamaran. All snorkelling equipment is included.

Refreshments at the West End
You can now head out to the West End of Rottnest Island and stay hydrated while viewing its rugged coastline and year-round population of New Zealand Fur Seals. For the first time, food and drink including snacks and hot and cold beverages are available to buy here thanks to Lexi's, the vintage caravan.
