On The Double

Chartered: 21 Aug 2010

First off, I'd like to thank all of the staff at Cumberland for making our trip unforgettable. When we arrived at the marina on our first day, we were all shocked at the warm and humid weather. Our first sail in our boat (On The Double) was fun and exciting for us kids had never been sailing before. In the first hour of us being there, we saw whales and during our trip we saw every creature you can imagine finding in the sea, including: whales, turtles, dolphins and even blue hump headed Maori Wrasse! When we stopped at Manta Ray Bay, we swam with two Giant Trevally and Grumpy the hump headed wrasse. At Mackerel Bay, we snorkelled for the first time and it was incredible!! I have never seen so many fish in my life. When we anchored at Butterfly Bay, I went oyster collecting with some members of my family. We ate them during 'Happy Hour' and boy were they yummy! After Butterfly Bay we went to Nara Inlet and went for a walk to the Aboriginal caves where we saw some paintings done by their ancestors. After Nara, we headed into Airlie beach to stay for the night.  I enjoyed meeting Sue and some of the other crew members before we headed off in the morning to catch our flight back to Melbourne. Now we are sitting here, absolutely freezing, wondering why we can't just stay in the Whitsundays forever! (Trust me, we've thought about it!) Thanks for making our charter so enjoyable and hope to see you again next year!
