Incredible experience - We did the Maria Island and Ile Des Phoques day trip with pick up from Hobart and it was an highlight of our trip to Tasmania - the photos of ile Des Phoques do not do it justice. Everything ran to time, including hotel pick up and drop off back at the airport, food was fantastic quality and all communications with the team prior to the day were answered in a timely manner. Michael’s passion for what he does was abundantly evident. There was nothing I could suggest to improve the tour.

Excellent - The driver was a great company and she helped us with everything. If you don’t have a car you should choose this shuttle service for sure. :)

Must Do Experience - The pick up from Hobart was a great start to a wonderful day of seal, dolphin, bird, kangaroo, pademelon and wombat (lots of wombats) spotting. Maria Island is rugged and brooding, beautiful and fascinating all at once. The former convict settlement really interesting but the highlight for me was the exploration of the stunning sea caves of both Maria Island and Ile des Poques. An amazing day with delightful and accommodating hosts.

Amazing cruise - The cruise was amazing! Very skilled skipper and very knowledgeable about the area and the history of Maria Island. And to top it all, the weather was perfect. Added bonus to a super day out! The dolphins, fur seals, wombats, cape barren geese and albatross were all out to enjoy the beautiful weather! The door-to-door service of shuttle bus was efficient.

Brilliant day out - What an absolute ripper day out. Picked up from Maria Island at 10.15 dropped back off at 2.30. Great informative commentary and wow those views were just to die for. The sea caves were a real highlight as was Haunted bay, which we had hiked to the previous year, to see it from the boat was a whole new level. This family of 5 can’t recommend this day out enough, a real must do if in the area. Huge thanks to Mike and Co for the best day out in a long time, we will recommend this trip to everyone.

Terrific and friendly service - Terrific and friendly service. Well worth taking for a day trip to Maria Island. The shuttle leaves from the city in time for the ferry across, and picks us up after the last ferry back for the day.

DIY day trip to Maria Island - I didn't want to pay for a full guided tour, so I chose the cheaper option of shuttle bus to Triabunna then Maria Island Ferry. I changed my pickup point on the morning of departure, which was accommodated despite a very tight schedule on the day (Thankyou Michael). Ella the relief driver was cheerful, friendly and welcoming to all passengers. One tiny quibble, there was a 70 minute wait in Triabunna for the shuttle back to Hobart, which was a bit boring. Otherwise, though, it was all good.

Convenient but not friendly to all nationalities - Pick up and drop off time is prompt. Convenient service to and from Triabunna. Driver seems to be friendly to certain nationalities only. Didnt even asked where we can be dropped off on return to the city.
