Rottnest Island is Perth’s holiday island and Subsea Explorer takes passengers daily over the shipwrecks of the Denton Holme (1890) and the SS Macedon (1883).
Spot the fish, corals, rays and other marine life that call the ship wrecks home whilst listening to the on board commentary from the resident marine biologist.
The underwater architecture is simply jaw-dropping and you will be able to see many of the new sub-tropical fish species that now call Rottnest Island home. Learn about the ocean currents that have continued to shape the Western Australian coastline and their importance in bringing new fish and coral species into Rottnest waters.
Find out more about the maritime history of the Rottnest Island from the early discoverers and why so many shipwrecks now lay in Rottnest waters.
