We live in Perth but have rarely made it across to Rotto. What a fantastic experience! We picked an off season 23 degree day and loved it - the beaches, facilities, service. It was like being on a desert island. A day to truly “get away from it all”. Highly recommended.

Super easy to book; Very professional & polite staff on the phone; Had the bus to & from the ferry to ourselves & the driver was BEAUTIFUL (especially friendly, helpful & lovely to talk with - made us feel very comfortable ) The bus & ferry were punctual; Whole day was stress free & enjoyable (Apart from an extremely bumpy ferry trip to the island - through NO fault of this exceptional company ) We highly recommend this experience

It was straight and easy to find the ferry. The beaches are amazing. You can hire bike on the island. It's not so easy if your fitness level is not up to it. If you choose bike and bus option, you can leave the bike at the bus stop before hop on the bus. If you only choose bike hire, you will need to ride the bike back to the hire shop. When traveling to the island, it was a bit disappointing that some people didn't want sit down left their bags on the seats while standing the whole trip. Those wanted to sit down didn't have any seat and had to stand.
