About ISail Whitsundays
'ISail Whitsundays was founded by Luke Mairs in 2007 with one simple goal: To provide one of the best sailing trips of the Whitsunday Islands. Since then the business has grown and now 2 boats showcase Luke's genuine passion for sailing and love of all things aquatic. Everyone at ISail Whitsundays prides themselves on personalised service aboard quality boats. Each tour sails, visits Whitehaven Beach including Hill Inlet Lookout and snorkels in at least 2 of the best fringing coral reef 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 2 boats within the company: The 14.9m long yacht Blizzard and the 14.2m long catamaran On Ice. ISail Whitsundays offers day charters and overnight tours. All tours depart and return via Northern Abell Point Marina in Airlie Beach Queensland Australia.

Hi All, I have just come back from a trip on the O’Nice sailing around the whitsundays and let me tell you it was the best trip of an entire life. The crew (Simone and Dave) are the nicest persons on Earth. They made our sailing trip so special with a unique itinerary and awesome activities along the way. I highly recommend them if anyone is looking for a sailing trip out of Airlie Beach. The boat is so well maintained and just big enough to welcome 8 passengers on top of the crew. The food was awesome and I cant thanks Simone enough for looking after me in terms of my diet requirement (being vegan). I highly recomment you to book through them, Dave and Simone will make your trip one to remember, with plenty of good memories and laughs.

The crew Julia and Tommy are amazing and have a great knowledge of the local area and islands. The food was great and we were shown how to work the lines and sheets. It was also a great opportunity to see bird life! Including White-bellied sea eagles and a variety of plovers and terns. Snorkling was also a highlight. It was a small group which was lovely and we were all treated like familia. We would book definitey book this tour again!

An amazing experience and well paced way to see the Whitsunday Islands, snorkel spots and beach stops. Our Skipper Julia was so great in providing info and activities for us to do. Deckhand Reef was terrific in keeping us well fed and assisting us with activities. Great time, we would definitely do it again and bring friends to enjoy with us. Thanks so much guys !! Champions xx

Such an incredible experience!!!! Thanks so much to skipper Isabelle and Juan, they made this unforgettable. Food was amazing and plentiful (turns out I didn't need to bring a whole bag of snacks). Activities were fun and special, got to see more of the Whitsundays by staying on board overnight (sunrises and sunsets are incredible). The cabins are gorgeous, had our own ensuite which was ideal.

Hi Matilda, thank you for the great review! Experiencing the sunrise and the sunset on the water is one of the best qualities of the Whitsundays! We are glad to hear that your crew were amazing and you had such a great time. We hope to see you back here again :)

We had an absolute ball on our catamaran, On Ice. Dave the captain was so knowledgeable on the Whitsundays, wildlife and sailing. He was generous with his time and nothing was too much hassle or a silly question. Deck hand Simone was great, so happy and welcoming. There was so much yummy food supplied, they know how to feed hungry people! Dave and Simone made our tour personalised and special, we had a spontaneous snorkel as it was so calm. The boat itself was well set out and modern. A recommendation, there were heaps of paddle boards but only one kayak, maybe a second one would be good so you can go together?
