SeaLink Ferries to Rottnest Island

SeaLink Rottnest Island Ferries

Our fleet of vessels, Quokka 1, Quokka 2 and Quokka 3, are designed and built to the latest safety standards, making them the most modern and high-tech passenger ferry fleet servicing Wadjemup / Rottnest Island.

The “Enviro-Cat” vessel design boasts lower fuel use per passenger than a small four-cylinder car. The hull and machinery package was specifically developed to protect the maritime environment. This makes Quokka 1 & 3 some of the most environmentally friendly vessels in Australia.

Featuring the Humphree active ride control, a high-tech system that automatically adjusts the vessels trim to give the smoothest ride possible with the added benefit of reducing fuel consumption, disabled access and bathroom facilities plus Wi-Fi and interactive screens – the fleet has your start AND end to your Rottnest adventure as enjoyable as possible.

Consider our vessels the Rolls Royce way to get to Rottnest Island, with the fast, safe and smooth catamaran hulls effortlessly speeding you towards your island adventure.
