Our trip from Hillarys Harbour to Rottnest Island was great. The boat is very fast and rides the swells in a very smoothe and comfortable manner. Both trips were good and both left on time. Highly recommend this boat trip while in Perth

Used this service to get to Rottnest Island and on spotting migrating whales the captain slowed the boat down for the passengers to witness this magnificent sight. Which was much appreciated by everyone onboard

Hi Chis L, Yes you sure can bring your own cycle on the ferry. This is a freight charge of $15 return per bike. Alternatively you can Hire a Bike for $30 per day. I hope this helps. The Team at Rottnest Fast Ferries
