We had a fantastic day. The staff on the cruise were absolutely amazing. The boat ride was exillerating, sights were outstanding, the green waterfall was a beautiful backdrop for our lunch break. Morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea was yummy. The walking tour was informative on Maria Island. We would recommend this to everyone.

What an amazing experience! Nothing was too difficult for Emma in the office, and on the boat Ali and Mike were brilliant! So much local historic knowledge they readily shared with everyone. They were approachable and easy to talk to, and made the whole experience so much better.

We enjoyed seeing a whale, two types of dolphins and seals in their natural environment. Also loved the local Tasmanian wines and food served on board. Would highly recommend to others!

Lovely and professional crew, great boat and facilities, fresh and fantastic seafood and superb sightseeing
