Chartered: 24 Aug 2010

We minimal sailing experience we excitedly (and apprehensively) woke on the morning of our new adventure. The briefing was completed, Serendipity was loaded with belongings and lots of food and we were away. After dropping off our sail guide, Matt, at South Mole Island we made the crossing of Whitsunday Passage for the first time to Cid Harbor. What a place for our first night. A magical sunset and the moon rising behind us, we snuggled in the net and relaxed  - finally, after so much planning, we were here.

Our first morning was going to be a big trip; we were off to Whitehaven Beach. Whilst our in-house Chef made crepes and strawberries for brunch we witnessed three whales playing in the sea. Extraordinary on our first morning we were treated to whales!

The beauty of having a home on the sea is that you can set your own pace. We were so taken with Whitehaven Beach, that we anchored nearby at Tongue Bay and went back to Whitehaven the next morning. Tongue Bay also treated us to our first fishing catch, a baby Queenfish whom we affectionately named Tonguey and placed back in the water. Hopefully, when we return to Tongue Bay on our next Cumberland Charter, Tonguey would have grown a little bit bigger and will visit our boat again.

For the remainder of the week Serendipity treated us to some of the most wonderful experiences life could offer. More whales, turtles, beautiful reef fish, sailing, snorkeling, fishing, eating and most importantly, friends.

Many thanks to the crew at Cumberland Charter Yachts, your professionalism and guidance made our holiday and adventure relaxing and enjoyable, and more than we could have hoped for.

See you soon Tonguey!
