What to Expect
Make your way from Perth or Fremantle on this full-day tour to Rottnest Island to indulge in deluxe dining on the water on a 4-hr Luxe Island Seafood Cruise. The package includes return ferry transfers from Perth, arriving in time for the cruise departure onboard the luxury charter boat, The Crusader III. Then, catch your own Western Rock Lobster and enjoy a chef-prepared, 7-course seafood degustation, with unlimited beverages and stunning Island views.
This authentic Western Australian experience is a showcase of Rottnest Island’s unique character, local cuisine, fishing heritage and turquoise waters – all in one deluxe experience, the only one of its kind. It feels just like a relaxed, private dinner party, where, as a guest, you are treated as a friend in your host's house. Add to this a touch of adventure... and a deluxe boat, and you're all set for a magnificent day on the water!
You'll be served an exquisite 7-course menu of local seafood and fresh local ingredients, prepared by a private onboard chef. Take in stunning views as you sip on premium beverages, poured as you cruise. Live the "Rotto life" with a swim off the boat, or laze onboard in a pristine bay.
The tour commences with a welcome cocktail and fruit platter on arrival. Enjoy the first 3 courses as you breathe in fresh Island air, while relaxing on one of 3 decks.
Then, get hands-on experience fishing for one of Australia’s most delicious and sustainable seafoods – Western Rock Lobsters. Learn about these amazing creatures in what is one of the best lobster fishing grounds in the world, before the boat anchors close to shore.
Expect to be mesmerised by Rottnest’s iconic turquoise waters from the most breathtaking vantage point there is – in the water. Nestled in a beautiful bay, you can choose to swim, snorkel or float off one of our mats, as we pass you your lunch! Then, it’s seated white tablecloth dining for main courses.
