• Your adventure begins with cruising Rockingham’s sheltered bays and islands in search of any of the 180 local dolphins that your crew have come to know as friends. Before long the first dolphin sighting of the day is marked by the excited shout of ‘Found them!’ followed by the slowing down of our engines to let the dolphins know we are keen to play! An excited buzz takes over the boat as the crew ensures you’re fully prepared to enter the water. ‘Zip your wetsuits up, masks and snorkels on and make your way to the swim deck- it’s time to get wet!’ Sleek, silvery grey dorsal fins start breaking the surface of the water within metres of the back of the boat and the skipper gives the command everyone’s been waiting for- ‘Go!’
• Penguin Island Ferry A 5 minute ferry ride is all it takes to meet the worlds smallest penguins! Visit the Discovery Centre to see the penguin feeding (daily at 10.30am, 12.30pm & 2.30pm) or spend your day exploring spectacular bays & beaches perfect for swimming and snorkelling. Go fishing, surfing, enjoy a picnic or just soak up the relaxed island atmosphere of this A class nature reserve.
Paddling a sea kayak is a unique and wonderful way to explore Penguin & Seal Islands and get a close up, water level view of the local wildlife. Our sea kayak tours are operated by qualified instructors who know the marine park and are passionate about sharing their local knowledge.
• Launched Dec 2007 you can’t mistake the ‘Penguin Express’- just look for the two giant penguins on the sides! The vessel represents a major improvement on the old ferry ‘MV Penguin Island’ which when retired last year was believed to be the oldest running ferry in Western Australia.• The ‘Penguin Express’ comfortably carries 75 passengers and 2 crew. It features sliding glass windows all round so guests can stay warm and comfortable regardless of the weather. The whisper quiet 4 stroke 50 hp engines get you to the island in approximately 6 minutes, so with departures leaving hourly from 9am- 3pm daily getting to Penguin Island is easy and more enjoyable than ever!
