O'Nice (2D/2N)

Cruise

On Ice is one of the Twin catamarans owned by Isail.

The other vessel is called Entice and they are affectionately called “The Entice Catamarans”. This means that no matter which one you are lucky enough to book onto, you will have the same epic, scenic sailing adventure!

On Ice has an exciting itinerary but also includes plenty of time to sit back and relax as you make your way around the islands for one unforgettable experience.

On Ice is suitable for all types of travellers including couples, families, solo travellers and the young at heart. The vessel takes a maximum of 10 guests allowing plenty of space for on board activities.

You will have the opportunity to snorkel the colourful fringing reef, view the coral gardens from above on a paddleboard, glide along the water in the glass bottom kayak or cruise amongst the marine life using one of the sea scooters!

Our crew will endeavour to visit the iconic Whitehaven Beach and Hill Inlet on every departure. Here you will see the famous swirling sands and enjoy some beach time.

The pure white silica sand and the crystal clear turquoise waters really are a thing of beauty!

The islands deserve much more than a quick visit to a few of the highlights. A quality small group, two night sailing tour is one of the best ways to explore the magical Whitsundays.

Sailing into the sunset, dining under the stars, enjoying a morning coffee whilst watching turtles come up to the surface, getting to know new people and the experience of moving under the power of wind alone, are all things that should be experienced at least once in a lifetime.
