We arranged the pick up for the early morning ferry the pickup locations in the early morning were limited but as it’s CBD nothings too far

We arranged the pick up for the early morning ferry the pickup locations in the early morning were limited but as it’s CBD nothings too far. We got to the harbour in good time, the check in was swift and I could rent bikes at check-in for just $ 20! The boat road was smooth the ferry has everything you need (including beer for sale on your return trip). The island is so beautiful and snorkelling was fantastic we bought our own snorkels so I can’t review that but the bikes had no issue. It was such an amazing day out and a real can’t miss while you're in Perth!

I had a great experience with the service of Experience Oz and enjoyed the island

I had a great experience with the service of Experience Oz and enjoyed the island. The only thing is the returning free bus service made me quite sad as they did not wait for us we have to stay at Quay for another 2 hours. Other than this I am quite happy!
