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. « less

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

The skipper Mark and mate Max will instantly put you at ease. Your safety is their primary concern. I highly recommend this Great Barrier Reef experience, where you are taken to the best places to snorkel. Also they sail you to magnificent beaches were you are able to add your own footprints in the sand. The food was healthy and... More

A group of 6 friends and I just spent 4 days, 3 nights on the 'on ice', booked through Whitsundays Holidays. We had the most magnificent time the entire time. Our crew, Kat and Max, were knowledgeable and so obliging - we were truly looked after. We spent a day at Whitehaven Island which was outstandingly beautiful and the rest... More

After traveling for 5 months around Australia and Asia this was one of my highlights. My girlfriend and I went on a three day, two night sailing trip on Blizzard and we had the best time. I had never been on a proper sailing boat before and it was such an experience. The boat was immaculate and captain Dave and... More

The 2 day/1 night sailing tour on the Iceberg was definitely one of the highlights of our Australia trip! We were looking for a small, non-backpacker-party boat where you could actually experience what it fells like to sail on the sea and we found all that on the Iceberg! With only 8 other tourists we set sails and discovered great... More

Blizzard was completely awesome. The crew were discreet yet friendly and took us to some great spots: Whitehaven Beach, stingray spotting, snorkeling with turtles. The food is great (even for vegetarians like me!) and the boat looks small from the outside but is cosy and wonderful inside. Rooms also have a powerpoint to charge camera batteries. The sea snorkel was... More

Went sailing mid august on Iceberg and it was the highlight of our trip to Australia. We traveled as a couple and there were 2 families on board so it certainly wasn't a party trip. The crew Jesse and Sean are not only good sailors but they really seemed to care everyone got as much out of the trip as... More
