New player SeaLink has a two-for-one ferry deal through November and Rottnest Express is offering WA children a free ferry ride, as well as limited annual passes of up to 10 rides for $99.
Hallelujah, finally it seems that getting to Rottnest Island will be cheaper.
SeaLink's new Rotto service begins on November 5, and to celebrate the company will offer two-for-one tickets throughout November. Adult fares start from only $22.50 one-way or $45 return, not including the Rottnest Island admission fee.
The new service will operate seven days a week, offering six return ferry services from Fremantle to Rottnest Island each day, equating to an extra 700,000 seats to the island a year.
Meanwhile, Rottnest Express has launched the Quokka Club, a free membership program for WA kids aged up to 12 which comes with free travel to Rottnest from October 16 (excluding the Rottnest admission fee).
Rottnest Express has also introduced the Red Rider Annual Pass which gives WA residents the chance to take up to 10 adult return ferry trips per year to the island for $99 (excluding the admission fee).
A limited number of Red Rider annual passes will be released each year, valid for travel from October 16.
Visitors will continue to pay the Rottnest Island admission fee of $6.50-$8 for children and $18-$24 for adults.
