If you charter
from hamilton Island bring all you luxury food
from home - steak, wine, cheese etc othewise you will fall over with a heart attack at the supermarket costs.
if chartering from Arlie Beach stay in a hotel
for a day and stock up at the supermarket in cannonvale.
hamilton Island is better because you are quicker to the islands.
nara inlet is good right at the end of the bay where theres a waterfall.
whithaven beach is good before and after the tourists boats each day. Butterfly bay is OK by Blue Perl bay better.
Cid harbour is good but better for long staying cruisiners than 1 week charterers.
