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

Wonderful time on a 2 night cruise on their catamaran. Isobel and Marissa (hope i got the name right!) looked after us so well - tried paddle boarding and lots of snorkelling. Whitehaven Beach is the most beautiful beach I have ever been on - just like the postcards. if you want to do a cruise with just a few... More

We (my husband and I) sailed with Captain Isabel and Marisa and had the most amazing experience on "On Ice." We were on our trip for 3 days and 2 nights. Every aspect of this trip was perfectly planned. The group size was small (10 in total) so you get to know everyone on the boat. All the activities are... More

My partner and I booked this for my 30th birthday as a way to have a bit of luxury, see the Whitsundays and enjoy the GBR marine park. Three days, two nights was the perfect amount of time to get to know our other 8 passengers and excellent hosts Dave and Brittany. Our cosy double room was small but we... More

We were on the ON ICE Catamaran with Dave and Marissa with 6 of my friends, and it was awesome. The Captain and his wife were so nice with us. Honestly if you want great holidays with a great skipper just book On Ice with David. And Dave has a Drone. Terrific... Nico

Very modern, spacious with comfortable cabins, beds and ensuites. It covered every luxury aspect you could ever ask for. But the real icing on the cake was... More

We boarded the Catamaran ‘On Ice’ late afternoon on day one. There were nine guests, we were all introduced and taken to our cabins prior to the mandatory safety talk by our captain David. The crew was a husband & wife team David & Marissa. We cast off, motored out to sea and hoisted the sails to kick off a... More

We had a 2 day 2 night tour on On Ice last week, with Dave as skipper and Alessio as stand in cook and first mate. With a tropical storm looming we were a bit anxious but never had a better time. Nice mixed company of brits, norwegians and a yankee, all easy going and relaxed. Dave is absolutely the... More

Hands-down the highlight of my Australian vacation!!! Three friends and I recently did the 2 day/2 night sail on the catamaran On Ice with Jesse and Tom and it was by far one of the most amazing trips I have ever taken. The boat was beautiful and the crew was fantastic. We did not want it to be over and... More
