Maria Island is home to World-renowned geology, pristine beaches, protected marine habitats, mountain views and UNESCO World Heritage convict history. Maria Island is also a sanctuary for native wildlife and is a dream destination for international visitors to come face to face with dolphins, whales, fur seals, sea eagles, albatross, gannets, wombats, kangaroos, wallabies, cape barren geese and possibly a Tasmanian devil all in one day.
We are is located in the township of Triabunna (1 hour, 10 minutes from Hobart) and specialise in cruise and walk day tours to Maria Island National Park. Our team operates a special boat called the Spirit Of Maria that is designed to explore some of Australia’s largest sea caves. The boat has two decks providing shelter, comfort and unobstructed viewing of Maria’s enthralling marine life, unique cliff formations and giant sea caves.
Our award-winning eight-hour day tour is the #1 day tour in Hobart on Tripadvisor and combines a four-hour scenic cruise of Maria Island’s stunning coastline with a two-hour walk of the island’s convict settlement. A big buffet lunch of gourmet local food, wine and beer is provided on the cruise whilst at anchor.
