Great trip over, very scenic. We sat up top to get maximum view, remember to take a jumper, you'll cool down when it picks up speed. Friendly staff.

Don’t get me wrong, we had a great day, the boat was quick getting there and back, tidy, the staff were friendly but having the monopoly of the Mercury Passage isn’t great for the end user. The charges seem quite high, along with costs of...More

Although the sea was rough the Ferry was very comfortable and spacious. The staff were only too glad to help in any way they could. The skipper was extremely friendly and gave a running commentary during the trip over and back from Maria Island

No complaints from us, we were obviously lucky to travel to Maria Island and back with the new ferry operators. Booked ahead from Hobart. Smiling helpful staff in the ticket office and on the boat. Thanks for a great day.

The lady who helped organise the bookings for the 2 times we vistited Maria Island was a bit nasty at times, it was a bit like a scene from Fawlty Towers. John was ok. I wouldn't use this boat in a storm if i could...More
