Due to rain and rough seas we didn’t do this trip much to my disappointment. East coast cruises were fantastic letting us cancel on the morning of the cruise and giving us a full refund. Will definitely do this next time. Was so excited to be seeing the wombats.

Thanks so much Michael and Jess for a great day. Commenced a tad wet with light rain, but Michael always assured us it would be a great day. and it was, Jess did the guided walk with us. Lunch was great, saw wombats on the island, and the seals on the rocks sun baking. From Rosemary in the office, thanks to you all for a great day and have no hesitation in recommending this tour, and the best part is Michael provides a shuttle pickup and drop off from Hobart. Thanks again.

An unforgettable day on Maria Island
Pete
, May 2021
We had an amazing day. We originally were impressed with a very clear relay of safety procedures and trip expectations. As we travelled clear explanations explained the history of the area and geological information. We were also able to change plans to catch wildlife experiences that will never be forgotten. We saw a whale porpoising with a high pod of dolphins. Later we saw and moved to be close to common dolphins Tha actual tour included a lovely morning tea and for a small cost a lovely salad bowl was appreciated for lunch. Our walking tour was also informative but it was difficult for our guide to keep the group together. Overall there was nothing that could compare to our wonderful day. We appreciated all aspects of the day

Wonderful tour and tour company. Caitlin's customer service was absolutely amazing from the time she picked me up from Hobart to dropping me off to the hotel. Michael our driver was extremely knowledgeable about the coast line. We saw so much wild life such as seals, dolphins, birds, wombats, pademelons, wallabys and kangaroos.

Seal Island
Darryl_P
, Apr 2021
The cruise to seal island to see the many seals basking in the sun and to be able to go into several of the sea caves were a highlight. The whole trip was enjoyable from the initial pickup in Hobart, the cruise and the walk around Maria Is. The wildlife (Pandemelons and Wombats) were a highlight of Maria Is.

Maria Island 19/3/2021

This tour was the highlight of my first visit to Tasmania. The transfer bus aptly driven by guide Caitlyn was on time with pick up from my accommodation in Hobart. We were blessed with glassy seas on a small swell. After an awesome coffee we departed from the mainland. The geology, topography and natural beauty of Maria is best done by boat. The tour was relaxed, the skippers commentary was impulsive and informative, a welcome deviation from the more sterile and frequented wine, cheese and pub lunch offerings by other tour operators. We saw sea eagles, seals, albatross, wombats and marsupials amongst a plethora of other highlights. I'm 100% for local business who show passion.
