Experienced captain and novice but well informed guide. Trip unfortunately shortened due to weather but a great day. The island cliffs are beautiful and the historical town is very interesting. We saw many wombats.

Fantastic, very professionally run tour. Boat very clean and organised. Micheal is an excellent operator and boat driver. Very informative commentary and knows all the great spots to slow down for the passages to enjoy and take heaps of wonderful photos. The lunch which you purchase separately is really delicious. All sorts of drinks are on offer , with a scrumptious morning tea. A guided walk, or walk on your own on Maria Island is also included. Highly recommend this tour with Spirit of Maria crew. Thanks for a wonderful day. !

Stunning scenery; an absolute must do in Tasmania

Circumnavigating the island, viewing the inside of caves and being amazed at all the rock formations was like nothing else. The dolphins frolicking alongside the boat and the wombats being unfazed by our presence on the island was such a beautiful experience. There’s so much history on the island to learn; it’s one of the best adventures we’ve had the privilege of partaking in and we’ve travelled to some incredible places. I believe we had the best weather of the season, and calm conditions so that certainly made it extra special.

Fabulous Day

From the moment I was picked up from my hotel in Hobart the day was great. After a scenic drive, the time on the water to experience seals and dolphins was truly amazing. After a delicious lunch walking Maria Island in the afternoon was sensational. Thanks to Michael and Steve for making the day so special.

Sea creatures and historical village

Great cruise where we got to see some dolphins and lots of fur seals. The cliff faces of Maria Island are unique and are of interest to geologiests. We had lunch on board the boat, and then were taken for a walk around the little historic village of Darlington. We were able to hear some of the history of Maria Island during the convict days. The boat crew were friendly and helpful, and it was an enjoyable day.

The BEST tour ever
Susanna_L
, Mar 2020
This was one of the best tours I’ve ever done. We were picked up from our hotels in Hobart and driven down to Triabunna where we hopped onto a ferry to circumnavigate Maria Island. The scenery was spectacular and quite varied. We then had a few hours on Maria Island before being taken back to Triabunna and then Hobart. The crew of East Coast Tours were amazing. If you do nothing else while in Tassie, do this one!
