Mackay Day Cruises
time Mackay residents can recall wonderful balmy days, when Roylen Cruises

and from early May 2009 will be commencing day trips from the beautiful
Mackay Marina to Brampton, Scawfell, Keswick and St Bees islands, plus
a Friday evening sunset cruise and monthly Whitehaven Beach cruise.
The Cumberland Islands are among the worlds most pristine islands,
largely untouched and just waiting for you to enjoy. With crystal clear
water, clean sandy beaches and fringing reefs, the islands off shore
from Mackay provide a fabulous location for a day trip to paradise.
Tucked away from the busy tourist area of the Whitsundays, The Cumberland
Island Group are ideal for snorkeling, bushwalking, swimming or just
relaxing on the many secluded beaches that these tropical jewels contain.
Reefstar Cruises are limiting numbers on each cruise to around one
hundred guests, so you won't be over crowded by too many tourists on
the beach at the one time, and there is ample room aboard the luxurious
MV 2001. A 30 meter wave piecer vessel, the MV 2001 is air-conditioned
and outfitted to ensure passenger comfort.
Most day cruises include
a sumptuous buffet luncheon, morning and afternoon tea, plus there is
always free tea and coffee available. The local crew are friendly, experienced
and ready to make your day special, so don't hesitate to use their knowledge
of the islands many features to make your day something memorable.

couples or families, and a chance for all to discover the tropical beauty
