The sea cruise departs early and it provides a basic breakfast of toast and tea which you feel thankful later as the journey can get rough and you can get sea sick. We took sea sickness pills available onboard in advance so was lucky not to feel sick. Therefore I would strongly advice on this. The views were spectacular. They provide the opportunity of snorkelling and diving into the sea to have a glimpse of under sea life in the great barrier reef. The staff was very helpful even if you have limited snorkelling and diving skills you can experience this with there help. There are helicopters giving ariel tours which is well worth. The lunch buffet was good after all the adventure. There were informative guided tours in glass bottomed vessels.

We were extremely happy with our day trip on the Camira. The boat took us to some beautiful locations and we had some time on the incredibly stunning Whitehaven beach (absolute paradise!) and we had the opportunity to snorkel in Hook's passage, however the snorkel mask wasn't great so maybe take your own. The staff were very friendly and the boat, whilst it had quite a few people on it, didn't feel crowded. The food was brilliant. We had breakfast, snacks and a huge BBQ lunch of which we managed to have seconds and thirds. Soft drinks, water, beer and wine were all included and once we'd tired of the activities we sat back and relaxed in the sun. It was a fantastic cruise and excellent value for money.

We had a great experience on our first visit to the reef. The staff on board were all very friendly and knowledgable. The snorkel tour leader was particularly attentive while we were out in the water and was quick to help anyone who needed it. This is a great way for any inexperienced divers or snorkelers to start. We saw fish, turtles and many types of coral. The one comment I would make is that many people commented that there weren't as many fish as other sites further up Qld and overseas. The helicopter flight over the reef was stunning and incredibly smooth. I highly recommend it as you get a more stunning view of the reef patterns and colors. The food was yummy and plentiful on board too.

After some initial confusion with the date booked, our treatment by staff from arrival at the Hamilton Island jetty (thanks Peta), the boat over and on arrival at the Reefworld Pontoon was exemplary. For day trippers, it's a great day with a good,safe snorkeling environment for beginners or experienced and even nonswimmers. Scuba is available for certified or intro divers and is very proesseinally run. However after the day trippers leave is most special. I won't say more so as not to spoil it for those who want to do it but it is an amazing, experience that I wouldn't have missed for the world. Thanks Nina, Josh and the boys who were friendly but respected our privacy.

I'm a Whitsunday local who went along in a small group on the weekend. We loved the extraordinary scenery. But were shocked at the 'bogan' attitude of the staff on Camira, their interaction is best aimed to the local football drinking team market. The day was very cringeful. Even before we boarded, the ticket seller rolled his eyes and tusk-tusked at having to split the bill for our small group of 6. Onboard, the cringeful 'jokes',... the staff member who confided in me that my fellow guests had 'forgotten to bring along their mothers to clean up after them'!!! What the...? I'd give this one a miss in preference for a company that doesn't treat their customers with contempt.
