Hobart's #1 tour on Tripadvisor - Redefined!


An unforgettable day tour, cruising the renowned coastline of Maria Island, Ile Des Phoques and Tasmania's stunning East Coast. 


Your tour will depart from the Triabunna marina (approximately 1-hour and 15-minutes from Hobart), and includes a 4 hour scenic cruise with a 2-hour stay on the island including a gentle walk of Maria's World Heritage listed convict settlement.  Due to COVID-19 restrictions, lunch will no longer be provided as a big buffet onboard the boat.  Instead, we ask guests to bring their own packed lunch to be enjoyed onboard the boat in a remote and secluded bay.  Morning tea will be provided and will include freshly brewed tea, coffee, orange juice, soft drinks, soda water and still water.  Home made lemon slice, fruit cake, gluten and dairy free fruit balls will also be offered during morning tea on the boat.  Local wines (Darlington Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Riesling, Sauvignon Blanc) and Tasmanian premium lager will also be offered for purchase during the lunch break.


After lunch, we will dock at Darlington for time with the wombats and an explore of the Darlington convict site. The perfect way to compliment your cruise is to stretch your legs and enjoy a guided tour through Darlington’s fascinating collection of preserved convict buildings, learn about the town’s remarkable history and come face to face with Maria Island’s resident wombats.  If history is not for you, then simply soak up the sun on Darlington’s white sandy beach.


Guests will be required to provide a Tasmanian National Parks Pass for entry onto Maria Island.  We encourage locals to purchase an annual park pass to cover the entire family.  Individual daily park passes can purchased at the Triabunna Visitor Center on the day of travel.

Join us on our exciting new half-day scenic cruise to the Ile Des Phoques (island of Seals). Departing Saltworks at 10am and returning 12:30pm. Spend 1.5hrs enjoying morning tea with the seals and exploring the giant rainbow sea caves.

Join our NEW Winter 2020 half-day Cruise to Ile Des Phoques!


This cruise is designed to give you all the excitement of our favourite place in Tasmania, the Ile Des Phoques (French for Island Of Seals) in a short half-day cruise experience.


The Ile Des Phoques has been our much loved place to cruise, swim, dive and explore ever since we began in 2007. The Ile Des Phoques is a small granite island that sits between Maria Island and Schouten Island.  It is an absolute haven for marine life and has been declared one of the best cold water dives in the world by National Geographic photographer David Doubilet.  


Your cruise to the seals will depart Saltworks (Little Swanport, 20min North of Triabunna).  This estauray is a magical place to begin your scenic cruise as it gives views across Great Oyster Bay to Freycinet and Schouten Island.   On the way to this remarkable granite island you can see pelicans at the mouth of the Saltworks estuary, albatross, dolphins, sea eagles, Australian fur seals and whales (depending on the time of year) as well as majestic panoramic views of Schouten Island, Maria Island and the Freycinet Peninsula. 


Once at Ile Des Phoques, we will spend 1.5hrs at the island, enjoying morning tea with the seals and exploring the giant rainbow sea caves (pictured above).  The caves at Ile Des Phoques are possibly the largest granite sea caves in Australia and with the right conditions, we can take the boat over 70m inside the island.  The colourful algae inside is lit with the morning sunlight as it streams through natural windows in the cave walls.  Seeing this natural phenomenon is one of the most breathtaking natural experiences in Tasmania. 


Morning and afternoon tea is provided onboard and will include freshly brewed tea, coffee, orange juice, soft drinks, soda water and still water.  Home made lemon slice, fruit cake, gluten and dairy free fruit balls will also be offered on the boat. 


Tour departs Saltworks at 10:00am and returns Saltworks at 12:30pm.
