Itinerary
Menu

Ride the waves, sun bake and relax. Let time fly by in a dream of turquoise water and green islands. And when you hear your inner call for action, bring out the movie star inside you. Drive the sea scooter to find Nemo or 'work out' your abs while stand up paddling in a serene bay. Our tour takes you right amongst the nicest Whitsunday Islands. Each tour visits the beautiful Whitehaven Beach on Whitsunday Island.

A short walk takes you up the Hill Inlet Lookout, from where you have a breathtaking view over Whitehaven Beach. Plenty of 'sand experience' time is to be had on Whitehaven Beach. The tour further stops in various of the dreamy Whitsunday Bays for snorkelling. Underwater you will find a whole world of itself, full of colourful corals and fish.

Our SeaScooter will turn the most convinced landlubber into a marine biologist. The Whitsunday waters are a scenic place to learn Stand Up Paddling (SUP). This watersports activity provides a great nature experience. Just being out there: you, a board and a paddle. And for the ones looking for total relaxation, there's plenty of sun lounging space or shaded seating for that holiday book.

BOARDING

A friendly ISail Crew member will pick you up at 4pm from the meeting area around the Marina Kiosk of the Northern Abel Point Marina, Shingly Drive, Airlie Beach (roundabout end). Pack light. You can store your luggage at check in. You’ll get taken to the boat, shown your accommodation and given a short introduction of the crew and the boat … and then you are heading out to sea.

SUNSET SAILING

On Ice sets off to the Whitsunday Islands and after a brief sailing introduction you and your fellow sailors will enjoy a sunset sail. Feel free to grab a drink. A snack (entree) will be served after dropping sails.

EVENING ON THE BOAT

The evenings are for relaxing, socialising or star gazing. A generous buffet dinner will also be served. This is a great time to exchange travel tales or ask the crew about marine life.

GOOD MORNING

Start the day with the smell of coffee. Breakfast is ready for you at 7am. After breakfast the tour heads to the 1st snorkelling location.

SNORKELLING

ISail snorkels in bays protected from wind and waves (e.g. Dumbbell Island). Listen to the snorkel brief, then put on your snorkel suit and grab a mask. Or how about trying out the SeaScooter, effortless gliding through the water chasing fish. Our crew will drive you directly to the corals and fish with the inflatable dinghy (rubber ducky). Your snorkel guide will stay with you the whole time to watch over you and assist you. Enjoy the great underwater world with peace of mind.

STAND UP PADDLEBOARDING (SUP)

Go for a relaxing paddle in a bay. Just you and your board immersed in nature.

WHITEHAVEN BEACH & HILL INLET

From Tongue Bay on Whitsunday Island we will explore Whitehaven Beach. Our crew drives you over to Whitsunday Island to the start of the Lookout walk. After a short bush walk you will enjoy the most magnificent views from Hill Inlet Lookout. On the other side of Tongue Point awaits Whitehaven Beach. Enjoy some time here relaxing, sun baking and swimming.

THE LAST DAY

After breakfast, enjoy another snorkel site on the morning of your last day in the Whitsunday Islands (e.g. Hayman Island’s Blue Pearl Bay). A big morning tea follows. Get ready for another exciting sail adventure back to Airlie Beach.
