'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.

3 day/2 night trip on the ON ICE was absolutly awesome. The boat is really nice and with only 10 guest on board it has an Relaxing atmosphere and the foos was great. The places we saw were outstanding for snorkeling and stand-up-paddling. Our Skipper knows the area very well, we arrived at the bay near Whitehaven beach and saw... More

This was an incredible experience. Skipper Dave and Sean looked after us so well in every way. The boat was gorgeous and very comfortable. We got even more than we expected turtles, dolphins and even got up close to a mother whale feeding her baby! Thanks so much for an experience our family will cherish. Feni and Russell

What an incredible trip! Couldn't have asked for anything more - swimming with a turtle, heaps of interesting fish & coral then had Whitehaven Beach all to ourselves before sailing off into the sunset with dolphins playing nearby. The crew went above & beyond to make sure we had a great experience & a brilliant few days was capped off... More

Our family of four visited Whitsunday Islands in August for four days. We unfortunately encountered unusually bad weather. Luckily we have Mitch and Craig of Iceberg as our guides and crew during our 2D1N trip. They are dedicated and professional steers of Iceberg who made sure we enjoyed our trip. On the first day the weather was OK and we... More

We've just returned from an amazing trip on Blizzard. Skipper Scotty and host Ellen went out of their way to make the trip perfect. Scotty's knowledge of the reef meant that we saw some fantastic snorkeling, swam with turtles, watched whales and overnighted in quiet, calm areas. I loved that they were both so down to earth as well and... More

Had the best time on the beautiful catamaran On Ice. Craig our skipper and Julia our deckhand ( and amazing cook ) made the trip that much better as they were both so knowledgeable and fun. Would highly recommend this 3 day, 2 night sail to anyone!

First things first: I did a 2D1N trip on the Iceberg and would to it again without hesitation (in fact I regret not doing a 3D2N). The Iceberg is beautiful and had enough space for all 12 guests.
