Owner description: 'ISail Whitsundays was founded by brothers Luke and Tristram Mairs in 2007 with one simple goal: To provide the best sailing trip of the whitsunday islands. Since then their business has grown to 3 boats and has been built upon a genuine passion for sailing and a love of all things aquatic. They pride themselves on personalised service aboard quality boats. Each tour sails, visits Whitehaven Beach including Hill Inlet Lookout and snorkels at least in 2 locations.Sailing with a small group offers many advantages. Boats taking less than 13 guests are allowed full access to the marine park, meaning ISail's boats can visit the best whitsunday locations whilst avoiding the crowds.There are 3 boats within the company: Iceberg, Blizzard and On Ice. ISail Whitsundays offers day and overnight tours. All tours depart and return via Abell Point Marina in Airlie Beach Queensland Australia.

Our skipper was Kat and deck hands was Murray. I was fortunate to be paired up with a really good group of poeple (mostly couples but all around the same age even Murray/Kat). And extra fortunate that total guests was 7 out of 10-12 max capacity. 2 poeple never showed up at boarding which worked out in my favor as... More

The sailing trip with the blizzard was one of the best experiences we've ever had. Absolutely amazing. Lovely boat, crew and people. Unbelievable beautiful landscape. The food was very delicious. We did stand up paddling, snorkelling, visited the hill inlet lookout an the amazing whiteheaven beach and saw turtles. Never been before so relaxed.

Brilliant trip with skipper Jessie and cabin boy Max. Enthusiastic, professional team who were passionate about their work. They also cared enormously for the Whitsundays, the reef and its conservation. Well done guys! Be prepared to muck in a bit and for being on deck during sailing so have appropriate clothing at hand expect high exposure to sun, wind and... More

My husband and I went on On Ice for 2 nights and it was the highlight of our 3 week trip to Australia for me! Stand up paddle boarding, beating the crowds at Whitehaven beach, snorkeling in heavenly locations and an awesome crew! We could not ask for more! AND the food was delicious - thank you Dan for feeding... More

My husband and I took our two girls 11 and 13 on a Whitsunday overnight sail on the iceberg. I cannot say how much we enjoyed this adventure. Mark and Sean and their special guest Claudia were terrific hosts. Thanks to Mark for encouraging me to snorkel the water. He could have given up on me but he didn't. Thank... More

We went snorkelling, paddle boarding, visited Whitehaven Beach and just could not have asked for anything else. This was the first sailing trip for my sister and I and we loved every second. If...

We had two days/two nights sailing the whitsundays aboard the beautiful Blizzard. It was a very modern, well designed and maintained vessel and we were amazed at how spacious it felt for two crew and ten guests. We have been to airlie beach three times now and had been out on day charters but this was the first time that... More

We had 2 nights aboard the Blizzard exploring the beautiful Whitsunday islands. It was a great experience which we shared with an extremely pleasant group on board. The experience would have been 5 star had it not been for our captain (Dave) who only spoke to us of his own accord during safety briefings. He was clearly irked whenever asked... More
