Luxe Island Seafood Cruise
Rottnest’s deluxe dining experience on the water

This authentic Western Australian experience by Rottnest Cruises is a showcase of Rottnest Island’s unique character, exquisite local cuisine, fishing heritage and turquoise waters – all in one deluxe experience, the only one of its kind.  

Our cruise feels just like a relaxed, private dinner party. As our guest, you are treated as a friend in our house. Add to this a touch of adventure... and a deluxe boat. Welcome on board our Luxe Island Seafood Cruise!

You'll be served an exquisite 7-course menu of local seafood and fresh local ingredients, prepared by a private onboard chef. Take in stunning views as you sip on complimentary premium beverages, poured as you cruise. Live the Rotto life with a swim off the boat, or laze on board in a pristine bay.

We are proud to operate in the waters of one of the world’s most beautiful islands. Here, we give you a hands-on experience of fishing for one of Australia’s most delicious and sustainable seafoods – Western Rock Lobsters. Learn about these amazing creatures in what is one of the best lobster fishing grounds in the world.   

Your Luxe Experience
The tour commences with a welcome cocktail and fruit platter on arrival. Enjoy the first 3 courses as you breathe in fresh Island air, while relaxing on one of 3 decks.

Join in the excitement of lobster fishing, before we anchor close to shore. Expect to be mesmerised by Rottnest’s iconic turquoise waters from the most breathtaking vantage point there is, floating on water.

Nestled in a beautiful bay, you can choose to swim, snorkel or float off one of our mats, as we pass you your lunch! Then, it’s seated white tablecloth dining for main courses.

Luxe Island Seafood Cruise – the only one of its kind in Australia. Catch, wine, dine and savour the beautiful flavours from this world-renowned location.
