Description:

'ISail Whitsundays was founded by Luke Mairs in 2007 with one simple goal:...

'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.

I did a lot of research on different boats/boat companies before booking; we wanted a good value for money boat with a small number of passengers. We chose 'Blizzard' as it had excellent reviews and met our requirements. The whole trip was a once in a lifetime, amazing experience. The staff Danny and Heidi could not have been nicer and...

They made the trip awesome with their attention to detail in regards to where and when to go to specific spots along our route. The food prepared byJulia was amazing and plentiful. I would highly recommend this crew to be your... More

I can't think of a better way to see the Whitsundays than under sail. We chose Blizzard because we felt a bit too old for a party boat, and were rewarded with 6 fun travelling companions and an excellent crew in Danny and Laura. We hiked across the island to Whitehaven Beach, saw the viewpoint in the sunshine and the... More

Just returned from 2 nights away. My girlfriend and I had an amazing time and Issy and Jules were the perfect hosts. The boat itself easily accommodates 10 people and the food they provide is superb to boot. We are so thankful thankful that we paid the extra for this cruise. Cheers guys

We could not have asked for more from this trip. From the moment we got on the boat everything went the best it could possibly be. We had the best weather we could ask for and managed to watch the Milky Way and shooting starts from the boat at night, stunning sunsets and sunrise, plenty of snorkelling (sea life and... More

Myself my boyfriend, my sister and her boyfriend and my mum all went on On Ice in February! It was an amazing experience that I would highly recommend! The weather was amazing and we did so much snorkelling, jumping off the boat, watching the sunset off the trampoline, paddle boarding and so much more! The crew were amazing and especially... More

We had the best time aboard On Ice, we had a great crew (Dave and Julia) and we had great fellow sailors! The food on board was amazing, you will never go hungry with Julia around. I had an amazing experience, I was nervous about snorkeling and Julia came with me to calm my nerves. Dave is a fountain of... More

Hi Jersey one, Thanks for your review and great to hear you got over you nerves when snorkelling and had a great experience . Thanks for your feedback regarding the drinks aboard the boat. The crews talk about water conservation was in regards to showers which use 90% of the boats water supply. It is not the case that you... More

We sailed Blizzard for 2 nights and 3 days and had a fantastic time. My girlfriend has previously been to the Whitsundays but was keen to experience them from a boat. Although the weather was not terrific we still made the most of every oppurtunity and had an awesome time. The boat is fantastic and surprisingly spacious with 12 people... More
