'Camira' is a world first with her sleek lines, spacious deck areas and breathtaking performance; capable of sailing at speeds up to 30 knots! This is a sailing trip so we rely on mother nature and naturally things will vary according to conditions but our fun, well-informed crew who have years of local experience will give you the best possible sailing experience and ensure you have a day to remember.
This is a fully inclusive day cruise so throughout the day, you don't need to reach for your wallet. All activities, morning and afternoon tea, a delicious BBQ lunch and all refreshments are included whilst on board. Camira is licensed to serve beer and wine from 11am.
Departing the mainland or the islands, Camira will sail through the islands and onto the most famous of them all: Whitsunday Island. Here you'll be awe-struck by Whitehaven Beach, undoubtedly one of the most beautiful beaches in the world. Whitehaven beach stretches for a spectacular seven kilometres and the sand is almost 100% silica, which gives it such a vivid white colour. As you step ashore and sink into the powder-fine sand you will realise why you came here.
At Whitehaven, you can enjoy swimming, snorkelling, beautiful beaches and bays and a superb barbecue lunch before once again feeling the thrill of high speed sailing as Camira sails back through the islands to drop you off at your destination.
