Sail through the spectacular Whitsunday Islands onboard high-speed sailing Catamaran, Camira. This fully inclusive day cruise visits world-famous Whitehaven Beach.



Whitehaven Beach - recently rated Australia's #1 beach.

Undoubtedly one of the most beautiful beaches in the world, Whitehaven stretches for a spectacular seven kilometres. The sand is almost 100% silica, which gives it the white colour. Such a unique place, Whitehaven is a must-see.

As you step ashore and sink into the powder-fine sand you will realise why you came here.

'Camira' is a world first with her sleek lines, spacious deck areas and breathtaking performance. Camira is one of the world's fastest commercial sailing catamarans, capable of sailing at speeds up to 30 knots!

This fully inclusive day cruise is an absolutely amazing way to see the Whitsunday Islands National Park and beautiful Whitehaven Beach.


Departing the mainland or the islands, Camira will sail through the islands and onto the most famous of them all: Whitsunday Island. Here you can enjoy swimming, snorkelling, beautiful beaches and bays, a superb barbecue lunch plus the thrill of high speed sailing on one of the most varied and exciting days on offer! Later in the day, Camira sails back through the islands to drop you at your destination. A day to remember by all!

Please note: Camira visits the main 7km stretch of Whitehaven Beach and does not include the Hill Inlet walk, or spend any time at the norther end of the beach.


Morning and afternoon tea, a delicious barbecue lunch, and all refreshments are included throughout the day. A wonderful banquet of tropical cuisine and seasonal salads await you onboard ‘Camira’. With leading and award-winning Airlie Beach restaurants supplying Camira’s catering, you know you’ll be in for a delicious day! Camira is licensed to serve beer and wine from 11am.
