Jetty Pens for Hire

There are a variety of jetty pens available for hire on three jetties in Thomson Bay (the stark jetty, fuel jetty and hotel jetty). Skippers will need to supply their own mooring lines. 

While the Rottnest Island Authority (RIA) is awaiting replacement of the mooring pylons, all vessels using jetty pens are permitted when winds do not exceed 25 knots. Any vessel using a jetty pen when winds exceed 25 knots do so at their own risk.
