Full description

Departing from the Triabunna Marina, which is located approximately 1-hour and 15-minutes from Hobart, this tour includes a scenic cruise of Maria Island's coastline, time to explore the island and a guided walk around Maria Island's UNESCO-listed convict settlement.

The east coast of Maria Island features mountain-fed waterfalls, secluded bays, sea caves, ancient geology, and beaches of pure white sand. As you cruise around Maria Island, there will be stops at many of its famous landmarks including the Fossil Cliffs and the Painted Cliffs.

Listen to live commentary as you cruise toward Riedle Bay and Shoal Bay at Maria Island's isthmus. Drop the anchor and stop for lunch beside one of the beaches. These secluded beaches are only visited by a handful of people each year. Enjoy local drinks, snacks, and a salad bowl of your choice. Dock at Darlington in the afternoon. Stretch your legs on a guided tour through the collection of historic convict buildings. Learn about the town’s history and meet some wombats. If you'd prefer, simply soak up the sun on the white sandy beach or swim and snorkel in the pristine waters.

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.
