Outstanding service and a knowledgeable, charming skipper(Michael). A well-rounded, exciting trip that really highlights beautiful Tassie. You know it's great when locals and tourists are on board. This cruise caters for all ages and is a fabulous way to spend the day. Highly recommended

The tour started out with a cloudy sky, but the mood was good anyway. Cruised along the cliffs of Maria Island. I have never been on a tour like this, it was different - in a good way! See caves and stones you have never seen before. I would recommend it 100%

Mike and Jess took an awesome experience and made it better, Had been to Maria Island before, but had no idea the east coast side was so spectacular. Would highly recommend the tour to anyone, especially if they are having their 65th birthday.
