        Not the best experience.
        Had to run from late ferry to tour bus. Bus broken too. Train been broken for weeks, wasn't told till last minute. Didn't see quokka till last hour on island due to tour. Tour guide amateur, rushed. Gun turret interesting.

        Great day on Rottnest
        Great day.very easy with complimentary shuttle bus pick up from easy to find pick up point in city.If last tour like us it also includes return shuttle to Perth which is so convenient. Our cray dog lunch was excellent and our Simmos icecream huge and delicious. We saw few Quokkas mainly around the cafe and old settlement buildings. Hop on off bus a little overcrowded we stayed on for the complete loop which proved best choice. Nice day all up.

        Worth doing.
        Great day out. Very informative guide, Glen. Really enjoyed the bus and train trip. Could have spent less time at the gun and more at the light house. Good picnic lunch. Lovely to meet the quokas.

        A good coverage on WW11 local history!
        Being interested in history this was a must for me. The train was not running so a bus replaced it; no issue really. We done the tour with Ian, it was very enlightening and comprehensive. You get to explore the full complex!

        If you pay by card the bond they don’t give it back
        They still have to return my bond for the two bikes it’s a shame!! And i did the tour the 16th of February the 10 working days are passed already! I try to contact the operator through email, phone and another email and no one respond! For a company like this is not a good behavior! In the meantime they are still keeping my bond! Of 50$!!

        The ferry trip was fine / well organised going out but a bit of a mess quayside coming back. No organisation on return quayside for 4 ferries leaving within 1/2 hour of each other . One big queue of passengers and bikes with little instruction from any staff . A complete free for all . Why not have ropes showing lines for each like airports ? Anyway the weather was great and we cycled to the south for the ‘best’ snorkelling. What a let down , little salmon bay was crowded with school kids shouting and screaming . There was not much to see in the water , grey and silver fish but little of any colour . It was the same at all our stops. The beaches are good but very crowded. It was nice to cycle round , a little hilly for some so walking was the solution . The settlement provides shops and food plus plenty of Quokkas scurrying for food. It reminded us of a Center Parcs Village with huts around it to stay in ( not as nice though ) and this central area for all your needs. We were probably expecting too much from the snorkelling experience having been to the Great Barrier Reef, Maldives and Egypt but we enjoyed the day out .

        Great Transport, Efficient polite+++. Make the bike snorkel combination better!
        This was organised and pleasant regarding transport. Timely friendly no uglys. We overnighted on Rottnest island out and back with a just right fel to the Ferry abd bike service. The gripe we hve is that they combine bikes and snorkelling equipment with a $100 dollar bond. But the bike spring holders drop the good snorkelling gear, leading to distressing back tracks. We tried using our overnight back packs, but they are too small. My daughter and I loved the bike snorkel rest circle on Rottnest. First gear is too high even for fit people, on Rottnest hills. A basket, or fixing the holding springs and a Phone/GPS holder would help, not looking for fallen snorkel gear. This is handyman level stuff. For those overnighting on the island a great place. Wanting to to cycle snorkle resort. Fix up the bikes to hold the snorkelling gear and navigate. Consider bike up grades such as more gears for the fit or e bike for less fit or older. The service is nice effective friendly and timely. Make the bike snorkel combo work.

        Mini holiday
        We had discount vouchers from RAC and left it very late to book in. I emailed the company the night before and they responded first thing in the morning and completed booking in time for us to get the ferry. The ferry trip was excellent, comfortable and on time, having the late return at 6.45 gave us extra time to enjoy the island and not rush back .

        Great, but....
        This day trip cost around £45 each ($90ish) and we left the Hillarys around 10.00am. The Fast Ferry was busy as it was holiday time, but quick at about 40 minutes. The Island itself has some stunning bays, we set off walking around the northern shore from the Settlement. However, being a still, sunny day the flies were really annoying and extremely persistent, making it quite unpleasant. Fortunately the breeze got up and the problem was much less later in the day, but had it not the day would have been a bit miserable as the insects were constant. We thought about getting the bus South when back at the Settlement around lunchtime, however we didn't realise that the bus only went one way around the Island (anticlockwise) meaning we would run out of time, which was disappointing. However, talking to the Rangers it appeared that they have a series of free 'tours' that they run during the day including a walking 'Quokka tour' which took around 45 minutes around the Settlement and was really informative. It also pointed our popular viewpoints and photo opportunities that we took advantage of. The food and drink in the Settlement was reasonably priced. The dock was extremely busy at 4.30pm with many ferries leaving at exactly the same time (!?). The Fast Ferry we got back was an older one and not as well appointed as the first crossing, but the crossing time was still the same. A reasonable value day out but if you add in the almost necessary bus ticket or bike hire, it could be quite expensive for a family.

        Awesome trip to Rotto with Rottnest Fast Ferries!
        Rottnest is an amazing place and Rottnest Fast Ferries made the trip there and back so easy! Everything ran very smoothly and all the staff were excellent to deal with! An added plus is the free parking at Hillary's! Would highly reccomend!

      Fun way to spend a beach day and viewing wildlife - the local quokka! If I were to do it again I’d make sure it wasn’t school vacation time. Although the kids around me were the first to spot the quokkas, so it made it easy for me to see them!

      Rottnest Island is possible the nicest place we have ever had the pleasure to visit.
      It is unbelievable beautiful, the colours in the water are like something out of a water painting.
      The Island is kept clean and the history preserved, the bus tour has commentary and the people know their history.
      I would not have missed this trip for the world.
      Caution: Keep an eye on the bus times because they only go at certain times.
