A Passion for Maria Island

The Maria Island Ferry is a proudly Tasmanian business. The team has provided a reliable warm and comfortable service for many years.

Our  Captain’s marine experience spans over 40 years in Tasmanian and International waters. He delights in providing guests with a comprehensive narrative while under way.
Your questions and comments are always welcome and invited.

The Ferry operators, John and Anne and the crew, have a passion to show you Maria Island:
… its history, features, wildlife, beauty and character which together make it such a unique place to visit.
They have a keen interest in the conservation of the natural environment and its sustainability.

“It is always a pleasure to introduce visitors to the Island and on the way home we enjoy sharing their adventures and stories”.

The Mercury passage can occasionally get a little rough, wet and wild however the ferry and her highly experienced crew pride in taking this in their stride and can travel in most conditions.
The comfort and experience of our guests is paramount and safety our priority”.

The Maria Island Ferry guarantees to get all visitors to and from the Island, out of the cold, wind and spray, rain, hail or shine.
