Catherine Sibert, 15 Sep 22
We had the best day ever! Thank you so much to the team on Camira who made our day relaxing and fun. I’m not the strongest swimmer so was very thankful for the care that was taken during our snorkelling time. Whitehaven is supreme, especially from the lookout. Food was perfect and plenty. Thankyou.
Nancy Lehmkuhl , 14 Sep 22
It was the most amazing day. I came from Canada and met my oldest friend of 60 years, who now lives in France, in Australia. Touring the Whitsundays was top of our list. The Camira excursion more than met our expectations. Thank you to the crew for an amazing day. A very professionally run tour
Isabel, 10 Jan 21
Amazing boat! It's a huge catamaran with nets in the front to lie down and sitting areas outside and inside with tables, so plenty of space and shade to relax. Hill Inlet was spectacular with beautiful colours and a perfect spot for a photoshoot. The food is plenty and very nice with a big variety and on top of it there is an open bar. Can only recommend!
Leigh, 10 Dec 20
Had a super fun day out on the Camira! Met the most amazing people as we sailed the seas. I was lucky enough to see a turtle when snorkelling! Staff were great and we all had a blast.
