On Saturday 7th August, an eclectic crew from Sydney descended upon Airlie Beach arriving at Cumberland Yachts excited and ready to take over the islands! Wed booked our trip back in January after years of hearing about all the wonderful things the Whitsundays had to offer, and finally we started our journey in style with champagne in our glasses and laughter in our hearts. With our course set for Macona Inlet, we arrived on dusk and marveled at the beauty. The colours that appear at twilight in the Whitsundays are amazing to say the very least! The sound of wildlife erupted and another bottle of champagne was opened.
The sun was warm and the gentle rocking of the boat pushed all thoughts of city life far into the distance. Fishing, island hopping, sun bathing, kayaking and reading soon became a normal part of daily routine and we could feel the The Whitsundays seeping through our bodies.
Even on the one day when the sun was hiding, The Whitsundays still managed to spoil us when we were greeted by a soft swooshing noise which announced the arrival of a majestic hump back whale breeching ahead of us to wave lazily, leaving our crew staring in wonder and awe. Time after time the whale surface to show-off an oversized fin or large powerful tail. And not a day passed when we didnt have turtles for visitors.
The boat itself was beautiful, still new, fully equipped, and no luxury spared. Having the full standing height bathroom up front was a blessing. We found we could all 8 sit comfortably up in the flybridge for happy hour every afternoon, and we were still finding new storage spaces at the end of our trip!
After 7 days afloat we left Charisma with sun kissed faces and bronzed bodies. It will forever be a trip to remember and we would like to thank Cumberland Yachts for turning on the weather and doing an amazing job in a town that is all about tourism. Cumberland are a standout and we thoroughly recommend them.  Were already talking about our next charter!
