"Great views and an easy introduction into sailing boats. It was great to overtake the highspeed catamarans using nothing but the wind mother nature provides."
Ryan
"Lounging on the trampolines while taking in the views as Camira sailed around the islands is pretty a pretty special introduction to the Whitsundays. Loved the inclusive beer and wine! The tender was a bit hard to get back into after our snorkel session, but the crew were happy to assist."
Bianca
"Camira looked like such a cool sailing boat, that we had to try it! It definitely did not disappoint – we had the most amazing day!!! We loved the nets on the front of the boat to relax and enjoy the sunshine. Their Aussie BBQ lunch was delicious, so much to choose from! And the open bar was a nice perk as well!!! "
Deanna
"I’ve been out on Camira a few times now with friends and my partner and I’ve had the best time, every time. You get to see Whitehaven Beach, Hill Inlet Lookout and snorkel in the inner Great Barrier Reef. AND it’s all inclusive!! I especially enjoyed hanging out on the tramp at the front of the boat with a nice cold cider at the end of the day."
Melissa
"We arrived at the port of airlie at 7.20am for an 8am boarding. Tea, coffee and biscuits to start followed shortly by fresh fruit. We sailed out for a couple of hours where we were going to snorkel. The captain and crew clearly had our best interests at heart, because they skipped past a couple of snorkelling spots where visability was poor. When we disembarked to the snorkelling spot they were happy with we were not disappointed having a good period of time to explore the reef and see a whole host of marine fish and coral. Back on the boat and onwards to hill inlet and Whitehaven bay. These truly are a sight to behold and we apparently saw it in a different light that was very rare. It wasn't the picture post card vivid blue, where it had been raining it was a strange brown kind of colour which was a cool spin compared to the usual. Once we spent a while on the beach in the beautiful white sand we headed back on the boat for a tasteful bbq with a wide selection of meat and salad. This was followed by beers and a couple of tops tricks demonstrated by Luca and as he knew it was our honeymoon, took delight in using us as demonstrators of how to split 2 ropes interlinked... no mean feat I assure you. The trip was amazing but it was all down to the crew for my wife and I that made the trip. They were all funny, knowledgeable, keen and highly professional. I would personally go on any trip with this particular crew because they were amazing. Thank you so much for such a memorable day all of you! "
Richie Hamster
"We were so excited to go sailing, and the boat did not disappoint- very exciting to feel the way the wind moves the boat, but it has engines too for when the wind dies down. Snorkelling was great, the BBQ lunch was so good we went back for seconds (and I'm a picky eater), the day was all-inclusive (drinks!), hill inlet and whitehaven beach were spectacular and we had plenty of time there so it didn't feel like we were rushing, the scenery sailing both ways was incredible, great music all day, there were TRAMPOLINES on the sail boat, and surprise chocolate cake too! The staff were so friendly and fun and all-in-all we couldn't have had a better day! Would recommend!"
Amy Pierce
"We really enjoyed our sailing adventure on the Camira. All the crew were fun, attentive and made sure everyone was safe and happy. It was great that everything (including alcohol) was included. We had a delicious lunch with plenty of food and drinks and thoroughly enjoyed the activities throughout the day. Highly recommended!"
Tim
"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 ."
Tracy
"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."
Chirelle
"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."
Im
"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!"
Melanie
"Fantastic trip to the barrier reef! Snorkeling, food and staff were exceptional! Had the best day and would highly recommend!"
Julie
"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."
