We chartered a Seawind 1000 catamaran from Cumberland Charter Yachts for 7 nights. It was a fabulous holiday for our family of 2 adults and 3 children (13, 12 &10).

Cumberland's staff were great every step of the way. Easy to book with friendly staff to answer questions. Boat orientation was excellent and we found it had pretty much everything we needed. We did do an online grocery order which certainly saved a lot of time. (click n collect) . The 8 berth cat was ample room for our family although l would imagine it would be tighter with 8 adults.

Contact with home base was easy and regular (night and morning) with staff always there to help. We had occasion for someone to come out and repair a split hose which occurred promptly and didn't interrupt our plans.

We didn't have any set plan when we set out on our adventure and this was great. You evaluate each day as it comes depending on the wind and the sea. Although busy in the September school holidays it wasn't a problem. There's a lot of space out there!! Our voyage generally consisted of a stop somewhere for lunch and a snorkel or maybe a walk around an island and then we would move onto a different destination for the night. The highlight would be anchoring off Whitehaven Beach for the night, what a place to wake up!. The multitude of turtles was fabulous and various snorkel spots and walks was great.

Our kids had a great trip and it is worth bringing some cards, games or colouring for some down time. We also took our own speaker which was good for music. The boat had one but we like ours.

We spent one night at Hamilton Island Marina which was booked in case we ran out of water. It really wasn't needed but we enjoyed the swim in the pool and a wander around civilisation.

On returning to Abel Point at the end of our stay the staff were once again great. They took a full report and actively listened for problems or suggestions.
Thanks Cumberland!!
