This is our second adventure with Cumberland Charters in the Whitsundays.  The service provided by the staff is outstanding and the vessels are fabulous!  The story of our latest adventure is detailed below.ENJOY!

Twas late one night on a Newfoundland dock, when the plan came into place
Wed fly off to Australia, Airlie Beach would be our base.
We met with Sue and Johnnie too, with smiles upon our faces
An introduction to our craft, and we were put through our paces

On Halloween night it was quite a sight, as the Pirates came into view
Neils shaven head caused Shirley dread, Daphne and Eddy too
Stonehavens calm and beaches with Palm, was booty enough for this lot
Butterfly bay remains to this day, one of our favorite spots

The starlit nights were quite a sight, as our Cat would gently toss
We spent some time sipping our wine, beneath the Southern Cross
Hamilton Island came into view, and a visit was in the making
On One Tree Hill, we got a thrill, sunset shots were taking

Whitehaven beach was next in our reach, and snorkeling at Chalkies a wonder
As Oprah would say when she had her stay, I love this land Down Under
Cumberland Charters with Steve and the rest, made all of our dreams come true
Whatever we needed twas there with a smile, nothing that they wouldnt do

So all of you Pirates and all of your crew, when seeking adventure and fun
Whitsundays the place at a leisurely pace, land of no worries just Fun
Pack your bag lightly and count down the sleeps, a lifetime adventure awaits
Cumberland Charters wont lead you astray, just call and set up the dates

As for the crew, in one year or two, its back to Australia we go
But while we wait, sadly our fate, is peg legs in two feet of snow
The parrots asleep, and nary a peep, does he make till he wakes with a sigh
And then a fine squawk, as hes now learned to talk
Aussie Aussie Aussie , Oi Oi Oi.
