It was a very rough trip and I got sea sick but i couldn't fault the attention I got to make the trip easier for me. We saw the seals lazing about on the rocks. The boat commentary was very good and informative. I didn't like the salad because I don't like veggies but my husband did. The tour on Maria Island was very informative. We love all the history stuff. We got to see the wombats, kangaroos, paddy melons and lots of birdlife just roaming around the island. On the whole it was a good trip but would be so much better with better weather but that's not the tours fault.

The crew catered to every need. Provided morning tea and a delicious lunch. We saw a pod of dolphins and they circled around our boat. The boat was able to reach along the coast and show some amazing rock formations you would only be able see on board. We visited Maria Island and had a guided walk, learning history and about the wildlife surrounding. Lucky enough to interact with some adorable wombats on the island who were not camera shy. Would recommend to everyone and definitely travel with them again.

The crew were amazing, the commentary was excellent and we are very happy we did this cruise. The geology of the island is a revelation and if you are a geologist then it’s paradise. Lunch and onboard refreshments were delicious. Wildlife was all around us both in the water and on land. Highly recommend this tour of Maria Island as a high point of Tasmanian Tourism.

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.
