'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 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...More

For a so called 'resort dive' no PADI, dive medical or other certificate is necessary. Sorry, you must have picked up an old brochure. As the dive boat doesn't operate regularly and every day anymore, we no longer offer the... More
