What to expect on a Rottnest Island Boat based Charter on board the Lady Grace
Departing from Fremantle, at either 9am or 10am your trip over to Rotto will take about an hour, then depending on the day we can head to the Army Barracks and drop the anchor or we can cruise past Bathurst, Longreach, The Basin and Geordie Bay to our favourite Parakeet Bay . Once we have anchored, we can take you to ashore at Parakeet Bay on our tender (please request when booking your charter), on the beach you can play cricket or just sit back and soak up the sun.
The waters are crystal clear and are perfect for swimming and snorkelling. We do have a few sets of snorkelling equipment on board for you to use. Most of the times , Parakeet Bay is pretty empty so you can enjoy the beach all to your self. Or feel free to stay on board the vessel and swim off the platform, the crew can also throw the inflatable's in the water for you to get your feet wet (not available on all charters). Sit back on board the boat and simply enjoy the peaceful sounds of the ocean and the simply stunning view of Rottnest.
Our crew will happily cook your bbq lunch for you and top up the esky. After about 5 hours of enjoying Rottnest, the Lady Grace will cruise back to Fremantle for your 4pm or 5pm finish. Included in our vessel hire is the Rottnest Island marine landing fees which also includes entry onto Parakeet Bay. However if you have booked lunch at the main settlement at Thomson Bay then the Rottnest Island Authority will charge you an additional $16.50pp landing fees Have a look at our onboard catering menus and stay on board for no hassle.
