Our Ferries

Designed for speed and comfort

The crossing from Fremantle to Rottnest is renowned for being one of the roughest in the southern hemisphere. Our fleet of three high-speed, ocean-going ferries (“Star Flyte Express”, “Eagle Express”, and “MV Sea Eagle Express”) have been specifically designed to counter these conditions and today Rottnest Express is known for its smooth, fast and safe crossings in any conditions.
