An absolutely amazing experience! We woke up on a cloudy, overcast, drizzler of a day and thought it was probably going to get called off but it turned out to be one of the best day trips we've ever done. The vessel is huge, able to fit 70 people, and is super steady on the water so none of us got sea sick. The crew were super friendly, funny, helpful and at the same time really professional. The music they played throughout the day was really well chosen, fit the mood perfectly the whole day. We were a little nervous about snorkelling as we had never done it before but the crew explained the process and assuaged our fears. Whitehaven Beach is a must see! Beautiful beyond description with lots of whiting, sting rays and baby lemon sharks swimming around. The food was great and in plentiful supply, there was morning tea, a huge BBQ lunch with lots of prawns and afternoon tea. All the while the crew were happy to doll out beers, soda or water the entire day. Well worth the $209!!!
Had a fab day out but overall don't think it was worth the money. We got a 2 hour ish boat to Whitehaven beach and then left immediately on another boat to see the swirling sand beaches. We stayed there for about 3 hours, just taking photos and swimming with our stinger suits on. Then returned to whithaven beach where we had lunch and about 3-4 hours free time to SUP, hike or sunbathe alone. The swirling beaches were amazing and so beautiful and our guide was lovely but really we got a small lunch and spent some time on the beach for $235 each. Our morning tea was 1 small slice of watermelon and a slice of orange. Lunch was delicious (burger and salad) but was taken away very quickly and no-one was offered seconds even though there was a lot of food left over. Afternoon tea was a small slice of pineapple and some grapes (if you got there on time). Unlimited drinks was for 30 minutes.
The crew of the Camira were 1st class. The itinerary was perfect, Whitehaven beach, the food, the snorkelling the attention to detail, all well worth the price of admission. My husband and I would do this again in a heaetbeat
The crew went above and beyond to ensure we had an amazing day (particularly Sherene, she's the best!). The food was delicious and the portions were HUGE. Highly recommend this tour.
Absolutely amazing day & worth every bit of it. The crew were so good, excellent service from all of them. The activities for the day were just excellent and so much food and drinks.
