East Coast Cruises
Maria Island is home to World renowned geology, pristine beaches, protected marine habitats, mountain views and UNESCO World Heritage convict history. Maria Island is also a sanctuary for native wildlife and is a dream destination for international visitors to come face to face with dolphins, whales, fur seals, sea eagles, albatross, gannets, wombats, kangaroos, wallabies, cape barren geese and possibly a Tasmanian devil all in one day.
East Coast Cruises is located in the township of Triabunna (1 hour, 15 minutes from Hobart) and they specialise in cruise and walk day tours to Maria Island National Park. The team operates a custom-built boat that is designed to explore some of Australia's largest sea caves. The boat has two decks that provide shelter, comfort and unobstructed viewing of Maria's enthralling marine life, unique cliff formations and giant sea caves.
Their award-winning seven-hour day tours combine a four-hour scenic cruise of Maria Island's stunning coastline with a two-hour walk of the island's convict settlement. A big buffet lunch of gourmet local food, wine and beer is provided on the cruise whilst at anchor in the most beautiful of locations. A shuttle bus service is also available for guests in Hobart.
