Must Do Experience
Apr 2021 • Friends
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.

Convenient but not friendly to all nationalities
Apr 2021 • Solo
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.

Thank you so much for this review and for sharing your experience. We would dearly like to discuss this with you further to better understand how we did not meet your expectation of the service. Our shuttle bus provides our guests the service (to and from Triabunna) who are either booked on our Cruise + Walk Day Tour or guests who are connecting to the Maria Island Ferry (a separate company). Our day tour guests are offered a hotel pickup and drop off service. Our ferry connecting guests meet our bus in two central locations in Hobart. On some occasions we are able to drop all guests to their hotels at the end of the day if the shuttle is not fully booked, but this is not the usual service offered. I can assure you that all of our employees dearly love every visitor, from every corner of the planet and we only wish visitors the very best holidays in Tasmania. We have been operating 5-star tourism for a long time to Maria Island and would never prejudice a guest in our business. If this occurred to you, it is important that we understand what happened on this day. Please reach out to us so we can share in your experience to better understand the circumstance. Kindest Regards - Mike (Owner / Manager)

Amazing cruise
Feb 2021
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
Feb 2020
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.

Fantastic experience
Oct 2018 • Couples
Absolutely wonderful cruise. Smooth hotel accommodation pick up and drive to Triabunna. Michael and his Dad kept us thoroughly informed with great knowledge of the cliffs and sea caves. Morning tea and lunch was delicious. We had a perfect day seeing seals, sea eagles, wombats, wallabys and dolphins. The boat ride was not rough as the weather was good.We would thoroughly recommend this cruise. The staff answered my queries before and after booking. Very efficiently and friendly run business. Wish Michael great success with his ventures

Excellent service
Mar 2018
This company (East Coast Cruises) provided exceptional service at the last minute when our planned tour (another company) was cancelled. Jess - our shuttle driver on our outward and inward trip was friendly and informative and we were generously dropped in very close proximity our accomodation on the Eastern Shore.
