DESCRIPTION

Hobart’s #1 tour on Tripadvisor!

If this tour is unavailable, our alternative tour will be offered (Tour 1).  Ile Des Phoques and Circumnavigation tours are offered on alternate days.  If tours are fully booked, please call our office and place your name on our wait list.  It is common to have last minute seats open up!

Join us on the most unforgettable day tour, cruising the renowned coastline of Maria Island and Tasmania’s stunning East Coast.  Our shuttle bus will pick you up from your hotel in Hobart and drive you to our departure location at Triabunna.  

Your tour will depart from the Triabunna marina (approximately 1-hour and 15-minutes from Hobart), and includes a hotel bus pickup, 4-hour scenic cruise of Maria Island’s stunning coastline with a 2-hour stay on the island including a gentle walk of Maria’s World Heritage listed convict settlement. 

Our Circumnavigation cruise around the Island is a totally immersive and educational experience.  The east coast of Maria Island showcases world class geology, mountain fed waterfalls, secluded bays, sea caves and beaches of pure white sand.  Enjoy expert commentary from our professional scientist crew as you cruise to the renowned Riedle Bay and Shoal Bay at Maria Island’s isthmus for a lunch stop on anchor. These stunning beaches are nearly identical to the world-famous Wineglass Bay and are only visited by a handful of people each year.  En route around Maria Island we stop to showcase many famous landmarks including the Fossil Cliffs and Painted Cliffs.

Lunch is provided on the tour from our cafe as a large healthy salad bowl. A variety of salad lunch options include; chicken breast coated in pesto aioli, smoked salmon, roast beef, leg ham or vegetarian/vegan. If a salad bowl is not for your liking, please let us know and you may choose anything else from our cafe to the value of $10pp (cash refunds not given if under $10). You may use this credit to purchase salad rolls or select from our range of freshly made sandwiches for children if you wish. You are also welcome to bring your own lunch on the day. Lunch is enjoyed on the boat whilst at anchor in an idyllic remote location at Maria Island.  A large selection of cakes are provided for morning tea from our cafe as well as complimentary water, tea, coffee, orange juice, soda water and soft drinks!

In the afternoon, both tours will dock at Darlington. The perfect way to compliment your cruise is to stretch your legs and enjoy a guided tour through Darlington’s fascinating collection of preserved convict buildings, learn about the town’s remarkable history and come face to face with Maria Island’s resident wombats.  If history is not for you, then simply soak up the sun on Darlington’s white sandy beach or swim/snorkel in the waters of Maria Island’s marine reserve.

Tour departs Hobart at 7:00am and returns at 6:15pm. 

Check-in will occur at the cafe from 8:30am, after which we will make our way to board our tour boat at 9am.
