Because of our previous experience with Cumberland Charter Yachts they were our first and only choice for choosing a boat, but which boat. After plenty of research we chose a boat and booked it. Then we promptly upgraded to another boat. This went on for a while until we finally settled on a Salina catamaran, the mighty Serengeti. Was this the right choice? As we were to find out, too right it was. We like to be well organised so many fun get togethers were had sorting out food, drinks etc. We all had to do 2 meals each, a lunch and a dinner. Hope the kitchen would be big enough. It was! Plenty of frothies were ordered; hope there was enough fridge space. There was! Nara is a beautiful place to moor. Very calm and peaceful. That afternoon John and Steph from Cumberland motor over and take some video of the Serengeti and us at play. Yes you can see it on You Tube. In the morning the bay is a mill pond but we are off to snorkel at Blue Pearl Bay at Hayman Island. It is the best coral reef we come across. Deano and I found if you swam down deep and stay still you could hear the whales out at sea singing. Amazing! Goodbye Serengeti maybe we will meet again one day.Tiffany - ALBANY, WA
