Sealink Rottnest Island Ferry - QUOKKA 1

Built in 2012 to the latest safety standards, Quokka 1 is the most modern and high-tech passenger ferry servicing Rottnest Island.

The “Enviro-Cat” vessel boasts lower fuel use per passenger than a small four-cylinder car. The hull and machinery package was specifically developed to protect the maritime environment. This makes her one of the most environmentally friendly vessels in Australia.

The vessel also features the Humphree active ride control, a high-tech system that automatically adjusts the vessels trim to give the smoothest ride possible with the added benefit of reducing fuel consumption.

Quokka 1 is quite literally the Rolls Royce way to get to Rottnest Island, with the whisper quiet jets effortlessly speeding you towards your island adventure.
