Thank you very much for the Whitsundays experience. We took out Mintaka for seven days and had an unforgettable experience. We had a good mix of sailing days - 15-25 knot winds with the excitement of chop and swell, as well as a few quiet days where we motored through glassy waters, all to the amazing backdrop of the Whitsunday islands. The website was fantastic - everything we needed was on it and always someone available to speak to over the phone. The boat was in great condition and the few small mishaps we had along the way were not made a concern being covered by the damage waiver - and fixed the day we returned ready for the next hire. There was a conscious effort to look after us and everything felt very easy leaving us to concentrate on enjoying the holiday. Highlights were the snorkeling, sea life and exploring the beaches with the tender. The kids ended up learning to steer and control the tender which gave them a great build in confidence and enjoyment. We saw snorting turtle heads pop up in the bays, dolphins alongside the boat in Whitsunday strait, and Angelfish the size of dinner plates swim up to visit us in a few of the anchorages. The walks (Hill Outlook and Whitsunday peak), were great also, within the capacity of the kids and great views as a reward when you get to the top. Airlie Beach (particularly the Lagoon) was unexpected and a good place to spend time before and after, and if you have kids we would highly recommend the Big 4 adventure park in Cannonvale where we stayed for a few nights afterwards (got the tip from Cumberland website) - heaps of things to do for kids including nightly outdoor movies. Given it is renowned as one of the best spots to sail in the world, and the fact that we were a family of 5 for a full week, with Mintaka, the islands and beaches providing all of the entertainment, it was also very good value. Aim to be back every other year or so to see you! Many thanks, Brendon, Angela (&co.)Angela - BALWYN NORTH, VICTORIA, AUSTRALIA
