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.

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

We booked this trip on Blizzard, a newish Beneteau 50, less than a week before and were lucky we could make the dates work with our Australia road trip. We are long time sailors with our own boat and have bareboat chartered many times in the Caribbean and the Med. This is our first time on a crewed charter with... More

A wonderful experience of sail, relaxation, swimming, snorkelling and the stunning Whitehaven Beach. Swimming with a gathering of turtles had to be the highlight of the trip. Well delivered a good mix of experiences.

This is a classy sailing option with excellent food, hospitable, and professional staff! I picked On Ice based on the reviews and they were on point! When I arrived in town loads of locals were saying what a great choice I made and they were right. Amy and Dan charted our course based on tides and weather... They took us... More

Thanks Scotty and Mel for taking us out on a great 2.5 day trip. Scotty is the kind of skipper with a life long sailing experience who makes sure everyone has a great time on the boat and in the water. And Mel runs the boat keeping everyone happy and fed. If you're after a small group of 10 people... More

A great team, thank you guys! And we were a totally nice group of 10 guest from 7 countries which made this trip even more interesting. Besides,... More

I enjoyed Iceberg sailing in February with my partner and a dear friend over my birthday, and we all had a wonderful time! The Iceberg may not be the newest racing boat, but definitely the most exciting sailing experience with a passionate crew! It is beneficial, that it can not be overcrowded, as the space is limited up to 10... More

My partner and I sailed on On Ice two days ago. It was the most wonderful experience. From the staff to the other lovely guests we met on board I would happily say it's one of the best things I've done! The catamaran itself I plenty spacious for everyone to sunbathe or have a shaded seat. The food was lovely... More
