Plan your Boat Trip

Everything you need to know before setting out

Prepare for your trip to Wadjemup / Rottnest Island by ensuring you’re up to date with all the relevant boating information. The most important research is looking at the boating alerts related to tides, currents, and submerged hazards — as this is essential for your safety. However, you should also check what facilities are available, have a look at the island’s regulations, and find out where the marine sanctuary zones are.

Once you’ve done your research, there are a few things we recommend you sort out before setting off. Make sure your boat registration is current by checking with the Department of Transport, then ensure your vessel has a current sticker for admission or mooring use, and lastly, make a note of the contact details for your local sea rescue group.
