We are so glad we went with Cumberland Charter Yachts.  Great info site and helpful staff. We decided on a motorised boat for starters but will definitely be back for a yacht next time. 6 of us in the beginning and the boat was roomy enough to party. Saw the best in the first 5 days, went to Marcona Inlet, where we snorkelled and fished. (Looking like the Incredibles in our lycra suits). Onto Butterfly Bay, snorkelled again, very different in each area, and saw my first real Cone Shelland bright blue stag horn coral! Then to Luncheon, Manta Ray Bay, for the most magnificent corals and fish, better than NEMO! Witnessed George the HUGE Maori Wrass. No food so he gave us the tail!
Afternoon drinks on the back deck, raving about our snorkelling, when from the depths come the huge Bat Fish, amazing! We all hung over the boat like kids feeding them. Off to Whitehaven beach, truly as glorious as the postcards.  Apostle Bay for champers in the arvo watching the beautiful sunsets, then retire to the front deck rugged up with a good shiraz and watch the stars come out, even shooting ones! Friends walked the gang plank at Hamilton Island, and we had 5 nights to ourselves.
Round to Cid Harbour, for the most colourful sunsets over the water. BEAUTIFUL! Ventured to Hook Is observatory & resort, don't pick up the ocean liners buoy! OOPS! and fished at Hayman Island and Mackeral Bay, lots of different fish, but we couldn't be bothered cooking them! Revisited Marcona Inlet for moonlit still water and like something out of disney land, phosphorescent algae! We wrote out names with our fishing rods in the sparkling sea! Laid back counting the shooting stars. Sigh......So romantic.
On our return we stopped at Daydream Island Resort for a lovely lunch. Contemplating mutiny we reluctantly returned.
JUST DO IT! the boys can play Pirates and the girls can play Titanic LOL!
It was awesome!!!!!!!!!!As Arnie would say "I'll be back."
