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.

I've been lucky enough to visit a few times before, however just on a day trip, whereas I wanted them to perhaps go overnight to get a real... More

In May 2015, I completed the 46-hour Whitsunday sailing trip on Blizzard. The trip could not have gone any better. Crewmembers Scotty and Matt were incredibly helpful and friendly for the duration of the trip. Scotty, the skipper, piloted the boat, taking us to three snorkeling locations as well as Whitehaven beach. He was also very informative, telling using the... More

To anyone who would like to spoil themselves, the " On Ice" Catamaran is a great choice. It is a family owned business and they will look after you and make sure you will have a comfortable sail. The skipper Kat and mate Max welcomed everybody with a smile and they created a relaxed atmosphere. They were such beautiful souls... More
