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

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

I took a three day and two night tour with ISailWhitsundays. The "on ice" is a great and very comfortable ship. The crew is simply wonderful, Cat, Sean and Emily took very good care of us. The crew knows many interesting stories and could answer all the questions about the animals, te Whitsundays and the reef. We snorkelled twice, went... More

We recently had a trip aboard Blizzard with Tris and Steff. Blizzard is a very well kept 50ft Beneteau, with plenty of space for the numbers carried. A very well run trip with great facilities (snorkling equipment, wetsuits, SUPs), lovely made up cabins and bathrooms, and excellent food cooked by the very cheerful Steff. Snorkling in two locations, some nice... More

Searching for a sailing trip at Whitsundays on the internet, we came across the 2 days-one night trip on the Iceberg. Especially the fact that this did not look like a party trip nor a mass-tourist event, but much more like a trip suitable for a family with younger children (14 and 12) made us select tris trip. Now, a... More

Our sailing trip on the Blizzard was amazing! Dave took us to the best places at the best times: He found protected snorkelling spots even though it was windy and we never met a crowd (not even at whitehaven lookout). Both, Dave and Steff were very nice and always ready to help. They looked after us very well! The food... More

We were on the Blizzard with dave and steff and it was just great. Steff has made very good tasting meals and was always friendly and helpful. Dave is a really good sailer and has lots of fun to do it. He showed us the best spots to snorkel and helped us to find some turtles. The way back was... More

Just came back from a 2-day-2-night experience on On Ice. It was a great trip that met our expectations (and we did have high expectations). On day 1, we headed off and dropped anchor in time for sunset and dinner. Don't forget to bring something warm for the cold winds. Sleeping in the catamaran was nice - amazing what they... More

My husband,16 yr old daughter & I spent 2 nights/3 days on your On Ice boat with skipper Cat & deck hand Emily in July 2014, it was SUPERB.
