Fishing Tour

The ultimate fishing experience

Experience the sheer exhilaration of the catch on an 8-hour fishing tour off one of Western Australia’s most iconic fishing locations, Fremantle.

Departing from Fremantle Fishing Boat Harbour, our professional fishing crew will take you to some of the best fishing spots on board our luxury 69-ft fishing vessel, Crusader.

Cast a line for some of WA’s most famous deep-sea species including Dhufish, Snapper, Samson, Shark, Baldchin Groper, Breaksea Cod and salmon (in season).

Fiahing Tour

All high quality Shimano equipment and bait are provided, along with training and guidance from Rottnest Cruises’ expert crew. Fishing Tour goers get to keep what they catch, and if you’d rather not clean your fish, you can request to have it gilled and gutted on board (as long as it’s of legal size).

Tour includes complimentary cafe-style coffees and teas, water and soft drinks as well as an egg and bacon breakfast on board. BYO additional food and beverages are also welcome.

WHAT TO BRING All fishing equipment and bait is supplied, or you’re welcome to bring your own. Tour includes complimentary cafe-style coffees and teas, water and soft drinks as well as an egg and bacon breakfast on board. BYO additional food and beverages are also welcome.

Wear flat, covered shoes and appropriate comfortable clothing for the weather – for example a long sleeve shirt that will protect your arms and shoulders from sunburn and a warm jacket/pants as it can get cool on the water. Sun protection is a must when outdoors for such a period of time so dont forget your hat, sunscreen, sunglasses and  lip balm. If you suffer from seasickness, we recommend taking appropriate medication as this tour goes out on the open ocean.





Our coastal waters are very healthy and productive for fishing, but there is no guarantee you will catch fish. We will, of course, help you as much as possible.

  • 5 star ratingExcellent outing on Rotto, first class service, professional as it gets. Such a great addition to those looking to elevate the Rottnest island getaway. As a day trip you get to set out on the water, catch some amazingly fresh crayfish (lobster like shellfish) and enjoy the fruits of your catch with a supplemented first class meal. Take your swimsuit and towel. The trip lands you back around 2pm leaving plenty of time to get a quokka selfie and complete a quick bike tour on a short circuit. I really enjoy this, and it was made special by a professional staff in all aspects of boat safety, fishing knowledge, and food/beverage service. Worth the price, would do again, met some great people on the trip.

  • 5 star ratingGreat time Had an excellent day on Rottnest Island. Only disappointment was that there isn't as many Quokkas to see this time. Cruise over & back was a O K.

  • 5 star ratingIncredible, down to earth and wonderful Last Friday my husband and I had the privilege of joining the wild seafood cruise. Pull up crayfish traps, incredible seafood lunch and jumped off the back of the boat and swan to the beach.
    The onboard team are truly special people. Keeping it real whilst providing an exceptional, informative and safe experience.
