As it was the end of year, we decided to treat ourselves to a bit of luxury & chose a VIP experience. Little did we know the professional lengths Myrianthe would go to make sure all our requests were carefully considered & catered for, organising an adventure to Rottnest Island to beat all others & our own wildest expectations. Rottnest Wild Seafood Experience offers passengers the ultimate in hospitality. An exhilarating chance to sail around the bays of the island, catching crayfish, taking in the incredible views of some of most breathtaking beaches whilst enjoying a beautifully chilled glass of wine before indulging in an exotic seafood banquet. For those that don’t know & aren’t familiar, the spectacular views & colours of Rottnest rival those found in the most exotic of destinations. The aqua marine bays with the purest of white sandy beaches are picture perfection. & so our experience began... We chose to arrive at Rottnest by helicopter just to add that sense of occasion & to give ourselves a NewYear treat. All impeccably organised by Myrianthe with Rotivation Helicopters. Phenomenal! We’ve taken the ferry before, which is super efficient, but as we wanted to create a sense of occasion there can be no better or faster way to get to Rottnest which gives you the thrill of a lifetime. The views of the island as we approached were spectacular...& we squeaked more than once with excitement. After a gentle stroll to the quayside we boarded the cruise ship & were immediately welcomed with a wonderful selection & display of wines beers & soft drinks...all included in the price & continually replenished throughout the cruise. &, after the essential, but seriously entertaining, safety briefing we set sail & were cruising around the bay to our first crayfish catch. Hosted by Husband & wife duo Myrianthe & Peter & their charismatic on board team, Rottnest Wild Seafood Experience gives you the chance to experience Australian hospitality at its best. Hauling up the days catch of crayfish baskets (pots) requires a fair deal of arm power, but for those who want to give it a go get the chance all under the excellent guidance & supervision of the onboard team, who’ll even assist with capturing the moment. For every moment of this cruise is a photo opportunity! Of course, you get to eat what is caught...which means the crayfish & seafood can’t possibly get any fresher than this. Lunch is then served with visually stunning platters of fresh seafood. Platter after platter of delicious dishes- oysters, shrimp, crab, calamari, fresh salads...one of my favourites being the fabulous fish tacos. Then the crayfish catch is grilled to perfection with everyone getting a very generous serving. The whole meal resembled a big Sicilian family gathering, everyone wildly excited, chatting & making new friends. Post lunch, strawberries dipped in chocolate & glasses once again topped up, there was the opportunity to go for a dip in the sea with one of the giant inflatable lobsters-hilarious but I chose to stay on board clutching a beautifully chilled glass of local Sauvignon Blanc & utilised the time left taking in the breathtaking scenery & chatting to the other passengers. All on board agreed we were experiencing something very special & unique. This experience was one of the best days not only of my trip to Australia but of 2018. The perfect way to celebrate the end of one year & to welcome in another. The perfect way to make every day a special occasion. Thank you Myrianthe & Peter, & your onboard team, for your kindness, generosity & for making our dreams become a reality. read less
