The Camira ride was really great. The crew went out of their way to make your stay as pleasant as possible. Everything was well organized and there was enough time for all the sights. Snorkeling was a bit disappointing as the view was not ideal, but everything else was great.

Really well organised tour, had been raining in the previous few days so the crew knew exactly where would be the best spot for snorkelling. Crew were fun and attentive the entire day, which flew by!! Food was incredible, way more than you would expect to get on a boat and there was tons of it aswell. Could not rate this trip any higher.

My friend and I had the best day on this tour! The crew is awesome and always there for you if you feel uncomfortable (e.g. if you get sea sick), the food was amazing (and there was a lot of it!) and also the free drinks flat rate for the whole day really made a difference. As for the schedule: First thing you do is starting off the day with a nice sail to the snorkeling spot. Before getting there, they offer fresh fruit, tea and coffee. Free snorkeling and before heading to Whitsunday Island, you can choose from a variety of small snacks to have the energy for a little hike to Inlet Hill. You’ll spend two hours on Whitehaven Beach and have enough time to sunbathe, swim or just stroll around. Back in the catamaran you’ll enjoy a huge bbq and you can have drinks such as cider, wine and beer on the way back to Airlie Beach. I highly recommend this tour!
