Fantastic tour
, Nov 2021
What a fantastic trip. Cruising along Maria Island and see all the different rock formations and stunning beaches including the historical side of Maria Island and it’s lovely wombats. I would recommend everyone coming to Tassie to do this trip. The tour was a highlight for me
Stunning day on the boat with a visit to wombats!
, Nov 2021
Team Mike & Ally were fabulous. Wonderful staff who took care of us from pick up to drop off. A lovely day on the boat, beautiful food and best of all we got to see the beloved wombats! ❤️

An unforgettable day on Maria Island
, May 2021
We had an amazing day. We originally were impressed with a very clear relay of safety procedures and trip expectations. As we travelled clear explanations explained the history of the area and geological information. We were also able to change plans to catch wildlife experiences that will never be forgotten. We saw a whale porpoising with a high pod of dolphins. Later we saw and moved to be close to common dolphins Tha actual tour included a lovely morning tea and for a small cost a lovely salad bowl was appreciated for lunch. Our walking tour was also informative but it was difficult for our guide to keep the group together. Overall there was nothing that could compare to our wonderful day. We appreciated all aspects of the day
A nature lovers delight
, Apr 2021
Wonderful tour and tour company. Caitlin's customer service was absolutely amazing from the time she picked me up from Hobart to dropping me off to the hotel. Michael our driver was extremely knowledgeable about the coast line. We saw so much wild life such as seals, dolphins, birds, wombats, pademelons, wallabys and kangaroos.
Seal Island
, Apr 2021
The cruise to seal island to see the many seals basking in the sun and to be able to go into several of the sea caves were a highlight. The whole trip was enjoyable from the initial pickup in Hobart, the cruise and the walk around Maria Is. The wildlife (Pandemelons and Wombats) were a highlight of Maria Is.

This tour was the highlight of my first visit to Tasmania. The transfer bus aptly driven by guide Caitlyn was on time with pick up from my accommodation in Hobart. We were blessed with glassy seas on a small swell. After an awesome coffee we departed from the mainland. The geology, topography and natural beauty of Maria is best done by boat. The tour was relaxed, the skippers commentary was impulsive and informative, a welcome deviation from the more sterile and frequented wine, cheese and pub lunch offerings by other tour operators. We saw sea eagles, seals, albatross, wombats and marsupials amongst a plethora of other highlights. I'm 100% for local business who show passion.
Stunning day on the water
, Mar 2021
Looking at all the rock formations was fantastic. Going into a water cave on a swell was an amazing experience. Friendly operator and informative water cruise
Bouncy day at sea
, Feb 2021
Experienced captain and novice but well informed guide. Trip unfortunately shortened due to weather but a great day. The island cliffs are beautiful and the historical town is very interesting. We saw many wombats.

Maria Island
, Feb 2021
Fantastic, very professionally run tour. Boat very clean and organised. Micheal is an excellent operator and boat driver. Very informative commentary and knows all the great spots to slow down for the passages to enjoy and take heaps of wonderful photos. The lunch which you purchase separately is really delicious. All sorts of drinks are on offer , with a scrumptious morning tea. A guided walk, or walk on your own on Maria Island is also included. Highly recommend this tour with Spirit of Maria crew. Thanks for a wonderful day. !
