Book below for our award winning Maria Island Circumnavigation Cruise & Walk Day Tour.  If the tour date is not available, our alternate Ile Des Phoques tour will be offered.  Click HERE for our Ile Des Phoques Tour.

Our Circumnavigation cruise around Maria Island is like theatre on the water, 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 scientific crew as you cruise to the renowned Riedle Bay and Shoal Bay at Maria Island's isthmus for a lunch stop on anchor.  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 in pesto aioli, smoked salmon, roast beef, leg ham or vegetarian/vegan.  If you have selected a salad bowl lunch, we now have a new option to offer you!  You can add a home made bacon & cheese quiche or pumpkin and feta quiche to you lunch and switch to a half salad.  Please let us know before you tour if you would like a half salad option with a quiche.

If a salad bowl is not for you, please 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, soft drinks, local wine and beer!

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.

If you are visiting multiple Tasmanian National Parks on your holiday in Tasmania, it can be more affordable to purchase a multi-day (Holiday) National Park Pass, saving you the need to pay for entry at the gate on each day you visit.  Please visit the link below to read about the different park pass options and you will find the online portal to purchasing your muli-day pass.  When you have purchased your multi-day pass, please indicate to us the pass number and we will refund you $10pp from the cost of your tour.

If the tour date is not available above, our Ile Des Phoques / Maria Island day tour will be offered below.
