Our parent company East Coast Cruises offers the acclaimed cruise + walk day tour One Day On Maria. 

Rated #1 experience in Hobart!  Where else in Australian could you see fur seals, dolphins, albatross, sea eagles, wombats, kangaroos, wallabies, cape barren geese, World Heritage convict history, ancient fossils, giant sea caves, dolerite mountains, spring-fed waterfalls, towering limestone cliffs, lichen covered granite, painted sandstone and pure white sandy beaches ... in a single day.  Oh and of course whales during their migration.. Don't forget the whales!

One Day On Maria cruise + walk day tour departs from the Triabunna marina (1hr 15min from Hobart) and combines a 4hr scenic cruise of Maria Island's stunning coastline with an afternoon stay on Maria including a guided walk of the island's World Heritage listed convict settlement.
