Description: 'ISail Whitsundays was founded by brothers Luke and Tristram Mairs in 2007...
'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.

Great 2 day sailing trip aboard the majestic Iceberg. Skipper Mark and Craig were both professional and a great laugh and made the trip the more enjoyable. We were very fortunate to spend the night moored off of Whitehaven Beach. The food was great and the snorkeling was a unique experience in the Great Barrier Reef! Would highly recommend this...

A superb two day sail aboard Iceberg. Mark and Rain did everything possible to ensure we all had a great time treating everyone as individuals recognising our needs and capabilities. Great fun, great food- thanks for great memories

Our trip with the Blizzard was really great! The crew was very friendly and they had a awesome local knowledge. The snorkeling spots they take you to is so beautiful, and they take you to Whitehaven beach were you're almost alone! The boat is also very nice and comfortable, and the sailing in it self was extremely fun. The boat... More

We decided to go on this trip because we wanted to avoid the booze cruise style trips. This was perfect. The hosts (Mark and Rain) were very friendly and nice, they made everyone feel welcome and at ease, but not before going over some safety tips first. The two day trip was lovely as took us to some lovely spots,... More

I just finished a sail on blizzard - the boat and deckhand are great. The skipper and owner is a strong contender for most unpleasant person in Australia. He's unsociable and surly, didn't learn anyone's name (why bother - we had already paid!) and just looked miserable the whole time. when I confronted him about his rudeness, he flat out... More

We had the most amazing 2 night cruise On Ice. Had the best skipper Amy who made our experience the most wonderful & memorable time. Took us to the best snorkelling places to see turtles & amazing colourful coral & fish. Craig our deckhand cooked us up beautiful meals & took us up to the lookout at Whitehaven beach to... More

I did a 2 night sail onboard On Ice and I'd highly recommend it. The crew were super friendly and the food was great! The boat is nice and clean and has a big front deck area where you can lie in the sun. If you want to stay away from a backpackery trip, this is the boat for you!... More

My girlfriend and I went on the cruise March 23-25 and had the greatest time! The boat is huge and beautiful. The food was fantastic. The views, snorkelling, and Whitehaven beach were out of this world! Best yet was the crew. Kat and Craig were wonderful. Kat was friendly and helpful. Craig provided perfect hospitality. He was hilarious, accomodating, and... More

We booked this trip as we wanted to avoid the party boats and the smaller numbers seemed ideal! We did a two night trip and it is well worth the money. Our captain, Scotty is very knowledgable and makes it clear early on that our itinerary may change due to weather etc but also so we'd get the most out... More
