Camira Day Cruise - great day full of activities, eating and drinking.

Beautiful day out on the water with the lovely Camira Crew. Must be on the to do list whilst in Airlie Beach on holiday! Great snorkelling, walking up to Hill Inlet and swimming at Whitehaven Beach. Hospitality of the crew was A+, we were eating and drinking all day!!

We had a really great time

We had a really great time, the tour was well organised, the food was OK, the staff was very friendly. We also found some shade on the ship which was really important for us. There was only one issue though. We did not visit Hill Inlet Lookout due to the tidal restrictions and we were informed about that only 1 day before the trip. In my opinion, they should have known it when we booked the tour but we did not get any info about it. We were very disappointed because of that.
