EXPERIENCE THE UNDERWATER WONDERS OF ROTTNEST ISLAND SCUBA DIVING
Rottnest Island, or ‘Rotto’ is the locals call it, is THE PLACE to scuba dive in Perth! Located off the coast from the Port of Fremantle, Rotto is highly accessible to locals of, and visitors to, Perth, Western Australia. The Island boasts a multitude of dive sites, and offers something for both the novice and experienced diver. Many of Perth’s best dive sites can be found here!
Rottnest is one of only a few places in the world to have a south flowing tropical current, resulting in oceanic conditions where tropical and temperate species can be found side by side. Massive limestone caverns and tunnels invite you to explore, sponges and soft corals offer an injection of colour, and with marine life big and small to observe, there’s never a moment to be bored!
In Spring, migrating Humpback and Minke Whales are found around the island. Whale sightings on the crossing over are common, and divers often hear whale song. In Summer the afternoon sea breeze and slightly cooler air temperature at Rotto bring welcome relief; a day on the boat is ALWAYS preferable to time on land. The Autumn months deliver lighter winds and a warm ocean, schooling Salmon can be seen and it’s a great time for Grey Nurse Shark sightings. Winter meanwhile, although cooler, can offer some spectacular visibility. Rottnest is truely a year-round underwater playground for divers!
INVESTMENT: $170pp (Diver), $95 (Snorkeler / Free diver)
