      Amazing day on the water
      Fantastic day out with a great crew. We were taken to the most beautiful location to snorkel. Weather allowed for sailing with the kids even able to help bring in the sail. So much fun !!

      Rottnest at its best!
      Fantastic. A must do experience. Equipment was great. Snorkelling was amazing and Jules/Anuska were very welcoming. The sailing at the end was perfect way to finish.

      Go on, spoil yourself!
      Cracking afternoon out on the water with the super friendly crew of Charter 1. Kids were invited to join in on raising/lowering the sails, as well as joining Captain Jules as he steered us home. Guided snorkelling was aaahmazing and a highlight of our family holiday. 8yo was easily able to keep up on the guided tour and loved the experience (frothing to go again). Plenty of marine life to view - an abundance of fish, sea lions, cheeky stingray, coral galore. Cargo net on the way back to the jetty capped off a perfect day. Would highly recommend to anyone! Thanks so much for having us!

      Sunset Cruise
      We are a family who have been sailing for many years, but do not often get the opportunity to sail as a family together. This was a wonderful experience and we all really enjoyed the experience.

      Sunset Cruise with Charter 1
      We scored a perfect evening for it, although the Skipper said he would have preferred a little bit more breeze... The crew were very cheerful and the boat was perfect, we also enjoyed a little bit of sightseeing around Fishing Boat Harbour before disembarking

      Great relaxing way to end the day.
      What a wonderful evening trip. Perfect weather, friendly crew, great music choice, wonderful relaxed vibe, what a way to finish my working week. My partner and I were given this trip as a Christmas present, and what a great gift it was. Would happily do this trip again.

      Amazing tours
      I already joined charter 1 twice on two different tours and the only thing I can say is: I absolutely loved it!! The crew was amazing and happy to answer every question. The first tour I did was the “Rottnest Island Snorkel & Sail” tour and it was amazing. It was a guided snorkelling tour, which made me feel really safe. The second tour was the Carnac Island tour which is probably my favourite. In the end the sea lions joined us in the water. But before that we went to the west side of the island to snorkel which is not typical. The wind was too strong so they changed the plan to make it as comfortable for the guest as possible and it turned out absolutely fantastic. I can definitely recommend both tours to everyone who’s looking for a fun and relaxing day on the water. Thank you for these amazing day’s🤩

      Snorkel equipment insufficient
      I was really excited for this tour but found it a little disappointing. The equipment advertised wasn't pulled out, until a couple of people asked after the kayak only for it to be packed up when everyone got back from the snorkel. The snorkel gear was simply not adequate for this type of tour operator. Not enough flippers in common sizes and many of the snorkels were broken. Overall, if you just want a nice sailing trip I would recommend this tour. However, if you are keen on snorkelling, you will have a smoother experience hiring snorkel gear for $20 from the ferrry / pedal and flipper and going yourself from the bays.

      Well worth going on the twilight Sail
      Fabulous experience watching sunset in the west, we sailed outside of the harbour after checking out the expensive boats in marina , great fun crew, sparkling wine and cheese board . Other visitors were friendly and easy to talk to overall highlight of our visit to Freo!

      Oh how I wished I'd loved it more.
      Unfortunately, this wasn't the experience that I was really looking forward to. I booked the snorkel and sail at rottnest island. Firstly, the boat is beautiful and the staff friendly. But, the first disappointment was the number of guests, there were over 20 people aboard, every one wanted to sit out the front whilst cruising, so way too crowded. I was unlucky to have a handful of children on a school day and the adorable creatures seemed to get priority of activities. I don't recommend booking this experience to snorkel, it was like a fast paced game of follow-the-leader, so there was no opportunity to just enjoy the sea life. If I hung back to look at something, my safety was checked on. (This had me feeling a little insulted, like my size and presumed fitness was holding up the group). A few unlucky conditions with wind direction and tide limited what we could see, so no chance of sea lions for us. Where we did pull up was very busy with a lot of other boats. I hoped to try the drag net thingo, I requested to get a turn without children, unfortunately this wasn't possible. I also hadn't realised the refreshments had been served, so they were mostly gone by the time I found them. Even the very end was disappointing, I finally had an opportunity to lay on the trampoline at the front, but was ushered inside to be ready to disembark quickly. Frustratingly, all I had to grab was my bag, i really wish I could have been left out the front for that 10 minutes as the large family with the children dragged out the disembarking time anyway. It wasn't just about the cost that made this disappointing, with wisdom, I'd have rather paid more to have less people and children. What disappointed me the most was more precious than money, it was the time. I find it unlikely I'll ever get the chance to visit rottnest island again, and the 3 hours could definitely have been invested better doing a self tour and snorkel. PS, I feel it important to add. I don't dislike children, I have my own and I work with them, this experience was a holiday from them.

    Couldn’t have asked for better conditions last week. We took the kids out with us and they said it was the best part of their trip. We saw sea lions and we were lucky enough to have a pod of dolphins chase the boat while we sailed. It was definitely a highlight for me as we normally just ride around the island for the week.
    Having a safe space for the kids (the crew are super friendly and experienced) while we had a drink and watched the sunset was perfect. We stay at Rotto every year at this time and I’m looking forward to next year already!
