Thank you all for the wonderful experience 7:49am, Sun 23 Sep 2012

Hi everyone at Cumberland yacht charters,

We would just like to thank you all for the wonderful experience we had in August while chartering the lovely Trinity Reign.  Sefton and I were celebrating 20 years of marriage, and it had always been a dream of ours to sail around the beautiful Whitsunday Islands.  From our very first contact with the staff at Cumberland, we were very impressed with the professionalism, helpfulness and friendliness of everyone.  We were made to feel very welcome when we arrived, and were even given a lift to our accommodation at the end of our charter.  We had perfect weather through our week aboard, and were given great advice and wisdom on our briefing, regarding our itinerary.  Our favourite places were Manta Ray Bay, Blue Pearl, and of course the beautiful Whitehaven beach. We woke up before dawn on our first morning aboard in Cid Harbour, (still on New Zealand time!), and the scene that met us was other-worldly; mirror calm water, mist on the hills, and the pink dawn reflecting off the surface.  Magic!  It just got better every day.  It was my dream to see a whale and a turtle.  We saw both on our very first day, and every day after that!  We couldnít believe it.  I think our highlight was when a pod of whales swam between our moored boat and the shore, and treated us to a wonderful display.  We had ring side seats!  The snorkelling was fabulous, and the dreaded stingers didnít materialise.  

Thank you so much for the best holiday we have ever had.  We will take the memories we made with us through the years, and never forget the wonderful times we shared.  So many times we looked at each other and commented that we found it hard to believe we were really there, surrounded by so much beauty.

Thank you again, you made it so special for us,

Sefton and Lisa
