To celebrate the new SeaLink Rottnest Island ferry service, commencing Sunday 5th November 2017, SeaLink WA is offering an amazing 2-for-1 ferry deal throughout the month of November, making family access to Rottnest Island more affordable this summer.

The new Rottnest Island ferry service will operate seven days a week, offering six return ferry services from Freemantle to Rottnest Island daily. Adult fares start from only $22.50 one-way or $45 return (not including landing fees).

According to Andrew Lane, General Manager of SeaLink WA, SeaLink has made a very significant strategic investment, aimed at growing the size of the Rottnest Island tourism market.

“We are really excited to commence our Rottnest Island Ferry service that we believe will meet growing local and international demand, especially during peak periods such as school holidays and island events.” Explains Mr Lane.

“The Rottnest Island Authority, has forecasted visitation growth to the Island to increase by 12% in the 2017/18 period, with this growth attributed to our lower prices and additional ferry services that will provide an extra 700,000 seats to the island each year.” Continues Mr Lane.

Not only will the new ferry service bring more tourists to Western Australia and Rottnest Island, but it already has created more jobs.

“I am incredibly proud that twenty new jobs have already been created within our SeaLink and Captain Cook Cruises business because of our new passenger ferry service to Rottnest Island. These jobs represent a 30% growth in our WA workforce over the past 6 months.” Says Mr Lane.

“SeaLink will continue to invest in Western Australian tourism as we are confident of the growth in the state’s tourism potential.  We want to make sure we have the best possible services to cater for the forecasted increased demand and consumer expectations. In fact, SeaLink are already in discussions with various government departments regarding potential local infrastructure development opportunities.” Continues Mr Lane.

SeaLink is an ASX listed public company with a strong history of investing heavily into destinations it services, including Kangaroo Island, Magnetic Island, Sydney Harbour and the Tiwi Islands.
