"Went out on Camira with my Fiance and her two friends from Canada, such a stable ride and so much room to spread out! Oh plus beer and wine included, how good is that!"
Samuel. C
"At first we were a little daunted that there would be too many people on board for us, but after coming back to the mainland we had an amazing day! The nets at the front of the boat made a great addition for lazing around in between stops. Whitehaven was of course amazing, but the hot BBQ lunch is what really did it for us. We'll be back!"
Angela W
"My friends and I spent an amazing day aboard Camira! We loved watching the crew sail her, claiming that she is the fastest commercial catamaran in Australia. The BBQ lunch was delicious after our snorkelling experience. Overall a great day to see the best of the region, especially if you love sailing. She's nice and roomy. The inclusive beer and wine were a welcome bonus too!"
Bianca. S.
"Our day on the Camira to Whitehaven beach was excellent. All the staff were very friendly. The food was superb and lots of. It is well worth the trip out to Whitehaven beach as its spectacular. On the way we stopped at a reef and went snorkeling. There was lots of fish,beautiful coral and clear water. A very enjoyable day."
Colleen Barker
"Booked Camira for my wife and I last week when we were in Airlie Beach visiting family. We had such an amazing time that we decided to do it all over again the next day and invited our 7 other family members to join us. The crew absolutely made this trip, a big thank you to them for taking such good care of us. The food spread was so good & Whitehaven Beach was a sight for sore eyes. A must do. I cant wait to come back and do it for the 3rd, 4th, 5th time...."
Neil Earl & Sue Earl
"Excellent day trip on the purple Camira sailing boat. Everything about this trip was excellent. The staff our informative, friendly courteous. The places we visited awesome, Whitehaven beach warm, sunny the sand is gorgeous. Has to be seen. The food was great plenty of it. Thoroughly enjoyed the day out. The islands and waters, reefs are well worth the visit. I would consider another trip ."
"One day catamaran was a great day with amazing bbq on board and free booze and drinks all day. The good thing was that although free booze all day this wasnt a party boat. Great snork Oh my god and visit to Whitehaven beach."
"We chose to do Whitehaven Beach in the morning and Hamilton Island in the afternoon. We were picked up early in the morning and boarded the boat. everything was well organised and made for a relaxing experience. after a few stops to pick up other passengers and drop the first batch at HI we went onto Whitehaven Beach. I cant begin to describe how beautiful this place is. Even with the hundred or so other passngers around, there is more than enough room to wonder down the beach to get some quiet. the sand and sea is spectacular. after an hour half on the beach, the boat left and took us back to HI where we went for lunch at the Marina Tavern. the food here is great. We had a few hours to ourselves so hired a buggy to drive around the island. Although not very big, theres plenty to see. Would recommend this trip as an easy way to see some beautiful parts of the local area."
"We went on a tour during our honeymoon in September and all I can say is if you dont get Craig as your tour guide, ask for your money back! Ive never met anyone who is so enthusiastic about their job, he was so knowledge about the surroundings and was full of interesting random information, he took the time to get to know each person on the tour and remembered each persons name and story. He also went the extra mile for us as he knew we were on our honeymoon and took us to our own lookout as the other one was busy and took some gorgeous photos for us. The surroundings of Whitehaven Beach, the hill inlet and Chalkies Beach were spectacular, pictures do not do it justice! We will 100 percent be back in the future only this time we will bring our daughter as the tour was very child friendly!"
"Fantastic trip to the barrier reef! Snorkeling, food and staff were exceptional! Had the best day and would highly recommend!"
"The trip was excellent. We were well informed about where to meet and our bus was on time to pick us up. The port is really well organised and looks very professional. We had breakfast on daydream Island. The food was good and was a really nice start to the day. Our tour guide Alison met us and stayed with us for the day. She was great, friendly, approachable and really knowledgeable. It was also her birthday. We travelled to Hamilton Island to have lunch. Food choices were good and lunch tasted great. Not included in the tour but we stopped at the bakery next to the lunch stop for cheesecake, was really good. We went on the Whitehaven beach, was stunning. Cant say enough good things about this experience, highly recommend. Special thanks to Alison, we have some wonderful memories of the whitsundays."
