Great Day Out
Fast Ferries provided a good service and the trip over and back was pleasant. It only takes about 45 mins from Hilary's and staff made sure that we're well looked after. It's quiet on the way over but very busy on the way back.

Watching my grand daughter (who has never been to Rottnest) get so much joy out of meeting the quokas for the first time. The one down side was the fare for the boat was expensive for a one day trip, a large family would find the trip prohibitive

Dear Kimy318 Thank you for your review. We are so pleased that your grand daughter enjoyed he time with the Quokkas Rottnest Fast Ferries works hard on providing our customers with the best possible value. We are constantly introducing discounts and specials into the market all year round. As Rottnest Island is an A Class reserve the ferry operators are bound by legislation to collect an Admission fee on behalf of the Government for every passenger that travels. This fee is included in your return ferry fare and goes towards the upkeep, maintenance and protection of this magical Island to ensure that it stays this way. We hope to see you travel with us again and be sure to check out our specials page on our website for the best deals. Kind Regards Phil Richards Director of Sales and Marketing

WORST experience ever, do NOT book it
DO NOT book from this company!!!無賴公司,不要預定。

Terrible pickup and no reponse by call during the 20minunites after pickup time, finally we have to cancel the trip. We were at the pickup point on time and did not find a bus with waiting for 10 min. Then we tried to contact them through the booking platform. For 20 min continuous calling, no one responded. (Later I read others’ review about this company, found it is a frequent problem of this company. They hold the call but no one respond.)

The service is not friendly to tourists at all. We tried very hard to catch the trip, including waiting at pickup point and immediately contact them when 10min passed. But because of the POOR service they committed, we cannot do anything more except cancelling. They had all our contact info. A quick message or call, or simply answering our call can make our trip, but they did not.

What’s even worse is finally we got in touch through their feedback form in the evening(which means they even did not notice we were not on board). They deny all the problems of the service, refuse any refund and blame us for their failed pickup.

Finally we found another friendly and higher rate company to make the trip. It was very good. There are a lot of better choices.

Hello Lagzxadr, It seems you are posting your review on every site you can think of. Rottnest Fast Ferries run a courtesy coach into the city to pick up customers from their hotels to our ferry departure point and returns them to their hotel at the end of the day. When you booked your tickets to Rottnest Island, you were contacted by Rottnest Fast Ferries and given a pick up time and were asked to be waiting 5 minutes prior. Our bus driver was at your hotel at the pick up time and waited for several minutes and tried finding you. Unfortunately he had no other choice to keep going to other pick up other customers so they would not miss their day on Rottnest Island. You have been advised that we have a tracker on our coaches that shows the actual time that the driver arrived at your hotel and the time he spent looking for you before having to move on. You have tried to counter this by sending us a photo of yourselves with no date stamp and at a location that is unrecognizable. While we are disappointed that you missed your pickup, if you have made your own way to the departure point by Taxi or Uber, we would have still taken you to the island and dropped you back to your hotel at the end of the day. Your review is not factual and makes a lot of assumptions, you were not at the pick up point at the time given to you, and in order to get all of our other customers on board to our ferry had to leave your hotel approximately 10 minutes after the time you were to be waiting. I really think you should take some personal responsibility for the reason you missed your pick up and the choices you made not to make your own way to Hillarys Boat Harbour, so you could make the morning ferry. You booked your tickets through a third party online operator and only received an email from Rottnest Fast Ferries with your pick up time, I don't really believe you are in a position to review our company at all considering you haven't traveled with us as for some reason you were not at the departure point at the time given to you. Space was reserved for you on our coach and ferry on the day. Regards Phil Richards - Director of Sales and Marketing

Nice day out
Oct 2019
We travelled across to the island on the 10am boat and returned at 4.30pm. After reading previous reviews I was expecting something a little better than we received. There was nothing wrong with the trip, it was just like all touristy boat trips. There is limited outdoor seating. The skipper did keep us informed of eta and also informed us of nearby whales. That was a bonus.

Hello Aussie059 Thanks for your review...… gee you're tough scorer. Thanks for the feedback on our skipper, they do an amazing job that often goes unnoticed, and you saw whales as well... sounds like a 5 Star day. Best Wishes Phil Richards- Director of Sales and Marketing

Great no fuss trip
We picked this option if transport for getting from Perth CBD to Rottnest as all the ferries leaving direct from Perth we’re booked out.

But we were really happy with this choice. Picked up by a shuttle and taken to Hillarys to catch the ferry over at 730. The boat was busy but everything ran smoothly and efficiently. Our trip was quite rough over but staff walking around offering assistance.

You can also hire bikes through this company, however we needed a baby seat for the bike which they didn’t offer so we needed to hire on the island.

Arriving on the early boat was perfect timing for getting into the island bike shop as it opened and also starting to ride around before all the masses of ferries came in.

Our trip back was also timely and no fuss.

Would recommend this option of travel to Rottnest.

Amazing location
What an amazing place. Worth a visit for everyone.
We hired bikes from the fast ferry and headed over for the day. 45 mins on the boat over was real fun for us all, on arrival got on our bikes and rode the 10km track which our 7 year old managed no problems.

There are so many beautiful places to stop on the way it really is a picturesque everywhere on the route.

We arrived back at the settlement 3.5hrs later and went for lunch which again was really nice.

After that a Quoaker tour which we all loved before a ferry home.
A must do trip for everyone.

Brilliant way to get to and from Rottnest
Oct 2018 • Family
We found the service really easy to use. Pre-booking may be a good idea if your planning to go on busy days.

We Took the first ferry across to the island. Staff were very helpful and friendly in buying tickets and getting us on board.

Getting to the island early allowed us to stop by the bakery and get a morning coffee and snack before spending the day exploring the island.

Our return was just as efficient as the trip over. Staff were very friendly.

The vessels had Mr Bean playing on TV's. which was brilliant for all ages with plenty of people laughing away.

I highly recommend if your staying north of Perth then use Fast Ferries at Hillary's Boat Harbour to go across to Rottnest Island.

Thank you for your review, Aussie Tourist79, and your endorsement of our service. We agree with you, Hillarys Boat Harbour is a great place to depart and arrive back to after a day on Rottnest Island, offering free parking or courtesy coach back to your hotel, not to mention an array of bars and restaurants to take advantage of at the end of the day. Hope to be of service to you again. Kind Regards Phil Richards
