Sailing the islands

Carnac & Rottnest Boating Adventure Tours

Discover Rottnest and Carnac Islands just off Perth’s coastline by chartered yacht. Our island-hopping sailing adventures are day trips studded with wildlife, gorgeous scenery, watery frolics and delicious food.

Carnac sea-life chartered yacht adventure

Visit the little-explored island of Carnac, just one hour’s sail off the coast. Enjoy cheese, crackers and delicious dips on the comfort of Starsand’s deck before getting out amongst the sea-life. You can snorkel straight off the boat, and/or take a fast dinghy ride around the island. Here’s where you’ll learn about its hefty population of snakes (it’s not known as the world’s most dangerous island for nothing) and nesting sea birds, from the captain’s lively commentary. Be ready – there’s a good chance you’ll have a close-up encounter with the playful resident sea lions.

“Who knew Carnac was so beautiful? Thanks for organising those playful sea lions to join in for the snorkelling. We had a brilliant day out. Simon’s commentary on the fast dinghy ride around the island was really lively and informative.”
