Sail a yachties paradise
This is exhilaration and relaxation rolled into one!
This full day sailing adventure visits famous Whitehaven Beach and is all about jamming as much fun as possible into the day with swimming, snorkelling, sunbathing and, of course, speedy sailing!
'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!
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 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 at your destination.
This fully inclusive day cruise is an absolutely amazing way to see the Whitsunday Islands National Park and beautiful Whitehaven Beach. It is one of the most varied and exciting days on offer!
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 northern end of the beach. If you do want to visit these areas of Whitehaven, we have the day cruise for you!
Food & Drink
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.
