As soon as Camira leaves the marina, setting the sails becomes the top priority. See how the crew use a combination of manual technique and powerful mechanical winches to pull up the mammoth sails to cruise through the calm Whitsunday waters. As you cruise along, you can relax on the bow nets, lounge on the comfortable seats or seek out the snacks in the spacious interior cabin. Camira is designed for comfort and space to make sure you have the best day on the water.
Hill Inlet and Whitehaven Beach
Join in on a bushwalk up to Hill Inlet Lookout and check out the amazing view from the top. See Whitehaven Beach from above and the amazing swirling sands below! This is the perfect place to grab some amazing photos and take in all the beauty that nature has to offer. The bushwalk up to the lookout point will give you a chance to get up close and personal with the flora and fauna on Whitsunday Island, listening to the sounds of the wildlife and keeping an eye out for the cool creatures that live there! Afterwards, head down to the beach itself where you can relax in the soft silica sands and swim in the warm blue waters!
Sumptuous BBQ with Free Beer and Wine!
Camira serves morning and afternoon tea, a delicious barbecue lunch and all liquid refreshments are included in the price! A wonderful tropical banquet and seasonal salads are served for you. Fish D'vine, a leading Whitsundays restaurant, supplies all the food for your cruise. Camira is licensed to serve alcohol from 11am in the morning.
On your journey back to the mainland, you will get to sail by the southern islands of the Whitsunday chain - something that most other day tours do not offer. Treat yourself to a beer or wine as you smoothly move across the water. By the time you get back, we can guarantee you will feel completely relaxed and more than happy with your amazing day exploring the Whitsunday Islands.
