The tender was a bit hard to get back into after our snorkel session, but the crew were happy to assist." - Bianca

"Camira looked like such a cool sailing boat, that we had to try it! It definitely did not disappoint – we had the most amazing day!!! We loved the nets on the front of the boat to relax and enjoy the sunshine. Their Aussie BBQ lunch was delicious, so much to choose from! And the open bar was a nice perk as well!!! " - Deanna
