Cumberland Fling

Chartered: 28 Jul 2010

We have just returned from a most memorable holiday onboard the beautiful vessel Cumberland Fling.  The Whitsundays has been a holiday destination on our list for many years, the only thing not planned was how we were going to explore this beautiful part of the world. The bareboat option was given to us by friends that had just returned from their adventure, Cumberland Charters came highly recommended.
The adventure started as soon as we booked, planning began, what islands should we visit? What do we take? The book 100 Magic Miles became our best friend; many hours were spent studying the information that was soon to become our bible.
We started our cruise from Hamilton Island marina; spending our first night in the beautiful Cid Harbour .Our adventures gave us the opportunity to explore many of the stunning bays and coast line of Whitsunday Island, Hook Island, Border Island, Dumbell and Haselwood Island.
Every day we plunged into the beautiful waters with mask, snorkel and fins, the marine life was amazing. The corals in Butterfly Bay in particular were breath taking.  We were lucky enough to see a lot of migrating whales along the way, some a little more interested in us than we were with them!
We found the Ngaro Cultural site at Nara Inlet really interesting, as well as giving us the opportunity to stretch our legs.
Our final evening was spent anchored on the pristine Whitehaven Beach, one of the most beautiful beaches in the world.
After spending five wonderful nights on the waters of The Whitsundays, we can sincerely say it was THE most restful, fun holiday that we have ever had the opportunity to take.
From our initial enquiry via email, to our final debriefing, Cumberland Charters have provided a service second to none.  The provisions that were supplied were of the highest quality.
We look forward to planning our next adventure with the wonderful staff at Cumberland Charters.
Many thanks
