Fremantle Fishing Boat Harbour

Fremantle Fishing Boat Harbour (FFBH) caters to both recreational and commercial fishing vessels with over 350 commercial and recreational pens, fuelling and maintenance facilities, 5 jetties and 3 wharves.

FFBH features universal access and provides easy access to open water and most vessels can be accommodated at the harbour with varying pen sizes available. The harbour caters for commercial operators but is also preferred by recreational boat owners seeking a safe, secure convenient location for their vessel which provides penholders with more time on the water.

The location of the harbour, with easy access to Rottnest Island, makes it hugely desirable as a base for boat owners seeking a convenient location to pen their vessel.
