Tours Perth Western Australia

Only a short distance from Perth, Western Australia is an island with seals and sea lions. Here you will find that there is plenty of space to relax and a lot to see both above and below the water!

The best time to visit Carnac Island is usually in summer but it really depends on what you like to do. For relaxing, try swimming or snorkelling or for a more adventurous activity there is diving. If a party is your thing, then why not book for a party boat charter.

Carnac Island is a nature reserve located in Western Australia. Whilst camping or walking is not permitted on the island there is plenty of  swimming or snorkelling to enjoy from the vessel.

We moor on the southern side of the island or drive close to the beach on the eastern side. Depending on the weather you can venture out at leisure and enjoy the birds nesting and take some pictures. The island is inhabited with huge Sea Lions and fun loving Seals. Take your time and enjoy swimming with the seals or simply admire these beautiful creatures from your vessel.
We do not recommend setting foot on the island as it is riddled with Carnac Island snakes which are dangerous.
Pelican Charters depart from Perth or Fremantle for Carnac Island day tours. Hire our boats for the perfect day out.
The mere fact that Carnac Island is not accessible to most, makes it a rare and unique place to visit. The snorkelling is amazing with abundant fish, stunning corals and other marine life.

Carnac Island Boat Hire

Whilst you can dive on from any side of the island, we have found the west side to be the best. Swim around all of the rocks and ledges or go out further west and find a patch of ground. You will be surprised at what exists underwater. The seals and sea lions are a lot of fun and playful to swim with when they decide to join in. Come and see these awesome creatures in their natural home all included on your fun day out. No extra fees here.

If you are looking for a place close to Perth in a boat, Carnac Island, Garden Island or Rottnest Island are about as good as it gets. They are popular favourites and are truly awesome places to spend the day.

There are great reefs and heaps of fish and marine life to explore. Straggler’s Reef is the next lumpy section you can see further west sticking out of the water.
