Carry-On Luggage

Passengers are welcome to bring one carry-on item on board each (excluding infants), however there is very limited storage space in the passenger cabin, so luggage taken aboard can be stowed on a first in, first served basis. No luggage is allowed in the aisles, wheelchair spaces or any other area that may hinder a rapid evacuation. Additional items or sporting equipment such as bikes must be pre-booked and will be charged a small fee for the transfer. These items are not allowed inside the main area of the vessel.

Luggage Delivery

If staying overnight, you can have your luggage (bags and eskies) delivered to your accommodation on your behalf. Each piece of luggage is $4.00 per item. Luggage labels must be collected from the ticket office at check in. You must have your accommodation address ready to provide at the time of check-in.

Conditions of Luggage

The Company accepts no responsibility for loss of, or damage to luggage, or for consequential damages arising therefrom whether sustained during off-loading or transportation, and whether arising from negligence, malfunction of the vessel or other cause, except to the extent that the exclusion of such liability is prohibited by law.

Fishing rods, bicycles, and golf bags cannot be delivered by the RIA and must be collected and by the owner from the jetty upon arrival at Rottnest. Items that are of an excessive size or weight may be refused at loading, and will not be carried by SeaLink Rottnest Island. This is up to the discretion of the vessel crew at the time of boarding.

In the interests of passenger and vessel safety, SeaLink Rottnest Island reserves the right to conduct a search of any luggage.
