Dreamy day of indulgence

Rottnest Cruises’ Wild Seafood Experience blends two of Western Australia’s best attractions − Rottnest Island and the Western Rock Lobster (crayfish) − in the ultimate sea-to-plate adventure tour.

Our indulgent boat tour is a day trip with a difference. Live the high life on an interactive 3 to 3.5-hour cruise, where you catch − then dine − on ocean-fresh delicacies.

On board our fully-equipped charter vessel, you will have the finest vantage point to witness the Island’s stunning coastline, dotted with beautiful beaches, bays and reefs. We take you right into the thick of the underwater action!

Led by our experienced crew, you can haul in cray pots to catch your own lobster, then see it freshly cooked for you on board by our chef. Enjoy a 5-course feast with unlimited local wines, beer and soft drink served throughout your tour.

Our full-day cruise package is all-inclusive, giving you up to 9 hours on the Island, with ferry transfers included.

People are saying...

The view was quite possibly THE BEST I’ve ever had!

“The adventure tour is a must for foodies, as well as being able to see Rottnest from a different perspective, I loved the ocean to plate experience. I had a pinch-myself moment when I was munching on the juicy lobster, gazing over the clear turquoise ocean to the white dunes of Rotto.

We certainly lived the high life during this cruise.”

You have to try it!

“… flat out best seafood meal I’ve eaten ever, bar none! Try buying a meal in any local restaurant for the same price as this tour. Sensational day out and that’s from someone who’s done some pretty incredible days on this island. Can’t recommend it highly enough.”

Best tour in Australia – SO MANY LOBSTERS!

“This has honestly been the best tour I have ever done. I have been very lucky to travel around Australia, Europe and the USA and this tour is the most authentic all-inclusive tour.

The crew were so helpful and did everything to accommodate me. Being the first time I had traveled to Rottnest Island, they helped me feel like I was at home – BUT IN PARADISE.

In short this tour had – crayfish, seafood, great staff and the world best island.”

- Aaron J, Alice Springs, Australia

Awesome experience

“Awesome experience with a lovely crew. Caught crayfish, had a seafood buffet with crab, squid, garlic butter crayfish then sweets.”

- Ros Hill, Western Australia

Such a great day!

“Such a great day! The island setting, the boat, the food and drinks, and the crew were all fantastic. It was so exciting to pull the pots in like that and then have the crays cooked for us on the barbecue. So much seafood! Honestly the freshest I’ve ever eaten!”

- Julie Lynch, Perth WA
