We chartered Mango Tango a 3 cabin 43 foot Perry with two families of teenage and grown up children (total of 8 - and we didnt feel too squashed) and what a wonderful way to see the Whitsundays. Eight days of gentle northerlies with lovely bays on the southern sides and good snorkelling up north. We sailed and motored, saw dolphins, plenty of turtles and of course lots of fish and coral. whilst there is coral damage in places, snorkelling highlight was Luncheon Bay and favourite anchorage Chance Bay. CCY were great and made our whole trip an easy, organised and stress free experience. Their planning web site is very useful and their friendly advice and service around places to go, transfers etc for a first time charterer makes CCY a definite "do again" for us.

The Whitsundays offer some of the best sailing and snorkelling in the Qld North. If you want to make it even better try a self charter on a Sailing Cat.
This is our 8th hire since 1986 (all with Cumberland) and even though the Cylcone has left its mark it is one of the best pieces of water in the world.
Great anchorages every night and despite 'no network' our 19, 16 and 14 year old could not have been happier. Big days of sailing and snorkelling and managed to find some beautiful fish, Turtles, Cuttlefish, Dolphins, whales (a first for us in the Whitsundays) and even a very pretty little black tip shark.
Cumberland are excellent, with the boats well cared for and the staff very responsive to any concerns. Special thanks to Megan and Terry for all the work they do

Hi G7267UQpaulf,
So pleased to hear you loved chartering with us (again and again and again) and pleased to hear the kids managed to 'disconnect' from technology and 'reconnect' with family! See you again next year for another charter with us.

We have rented with CCY in the past and were happy to have the same boat again - CHARISMA is a comfortable fly-bridge cruiser that accommodated our family of 5 ( kids 14, 12 and 11) very well. Lots of rom and very well appointed, would definitely look at doing this agin on the same boast next time.

We just spent 6 nights cruising around the beautiful Whitsundays.This was a great family holiday, even though we knew nothing about boats. The staff at CCY are fantastic and they look after everything that you could think of. I'll definitely do it again sometime.

Hi Den2404,
Thank you for your review. It's great to hear you thought it was an easy holiday given that you had never chartered a boat before or knew anything about boats. More people should do it it's that easy. Look forward to seeing you again for another charter with us.
