Trip Intinerary

Camira Day Tour Itinerary

Starting off from Airlie Beach, you’ll hop aboard the Camira yacht and embark on your cruising adventure to Whitsunday Island. Enjoy quick peeks at Daydream, Hamilton, and Hook islands along the way. When you reach the east coast of Whitsunday Island, the Camira drops anchor at the top end of Whitehaven Beach, famous for its stunning 7 km stretch of super white sand, consistently voted Australia’s top beach.

Join a guided hike to the Hill Inlet lookout, following the trail of the Ngaro people, the indigenous people of the Whitsundays. After the hike, enjoy some chill time on the beach with swimming and leisurely walks before tucking into a delicious BBQ lunch whipped up and served right onboard.

After lunch, it’s time for some snorkelling action at one of the Whitsundays’ fringing reefs, exploring the colourful underwater scenes. Wind down the day with a peaceful sail back to shore, soaking in the memories of an epic day on the beautiful Whitsundays waters.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the best time of year to visit the Whitsundays?

The Whitsundays enjoy a tropical climate of hot summers, warm winters and bright spring and autumn days. Average daily temperatures range from around 22 to 23 degrees celsius in the winter months of June and July, and up to 29 to 30 degrees celsius in December and January during the height of summer. Water temperatures remain a welcoming 25 degrees celsius most of the year round.

The tropical wet season occurs during January to March when days can be steamy, and the summer heat is often broken by tropical showers.

Marine stingers may be present in the waters year round, with the higher risk season during October – May. During this period, jellyfish are prevalent in the waters around the mainland and islands and have occasionally been found out on the reef. It is recommended that all guests wear stinger suits which are provided free of charge.

Where and when do I check in?

This one day cruise departs from the Cruise Whitsundays Maritime Terminal at 24 The Cove Road, Port of Airlie, Airlie Beach. The terminal features convenient airport style check-in and baggage conveyor belts, a large café with indoor and outdoor eating areas, a gift shop and comfortable seated waiting areas. Upon booking, you will be given a day cruise departure time. Check in is 30-40 minutes prior to your departure time.

How long does it take to get to the reef?

It takes approximately 3 hours to get to Hardy Reef from Airlie Beach, depending on the weather and sea conditions.

How can I travel eco-friendly?

Home to an explosion of colourful marine life, the Whitsundays’ natural environment is truly special. Offshore you’ll find six of the world’s seven species of turtle, along with delicate coral reefs and migrating humpback whales, who frequent the area from June to October.

Thirty-two of the islands are protected as the Whitsunday Islands National Park – including Whitsunday, Hook, Hamilton and Hayman – but it remains our responsibility to reduce human impact as much as possible.

Leave shells and plants where you find them: the only thing you should take with you is your rubbish. Don’t rush to flush and take short showers: fresh water is precious on the islands. Never touch or stand on coral, even if you are wearing flippers. Never touch marine life (fish, turtles etc) – human bacteria can make them sick.

Do tours still operate in the rain?

All tours will still operate in wet conditions. If the tour does not go ahead, you will get the chance to re-book or a get a full refund. If you decide to cancel because of weather, but the tour is still going ahead, you will be subject to the Supplier’s cancellation terms and conditions as well as Happy Travels’.
