Fountaine Pajot “On Ice” – Crewed Charters
On Ice is a 14.2m deluxe sports catamaran.
Bred from a racing heritage, she was designed by sailors, for sailors. Her huge foredeck is perfect for relaxing while the yacht is under sail. The aft deck is protected from the weather so guests can escape the elements without having to move indoors. The saloon features large panoramic windows, allowing you to enjoy the views while feasting on the fabulous creations served up from the galley. For easy access to the water, each hull has wide steps leading right down to the ocean.
Our small group numbers allow us to visit pristine locations within the marine park, seeing the best of the Whitsunday Islands whilst avoiding the crowds.
The Whitsundays provide many amazing snorkeling locations. The colorful corals and most abundant marine life are close to the surface, so all one needs to do is put on a mask and snorkel to be amazed by the underwater world.
Whitehaven Bay is the jewel of the Whitsundays and it deserves much more than just a quick photograph and a walk around. We embark on an amazing and unique adventure that takes you the length of Whitehaven Beach. Ride the wind and tide over azure seas framed by pure silica sand. Walk on water with a paddle board, kayak a little, enjoy a cool beverage as you drift along on an air lounge, try windsurfing or just read a book and enjoy the view from the boat. Action Packed or totally relaxed; experience more of this amazing beach.

Entertainment & activities
Strap on your ‘sea legs’, as there is lots of sailing to be done. While ‘On Ice’ offers a more comfortable sailing experience than traditional monohulls, it is still fast enough to keep up with most of the ‘retired’ Whitsunday racing boats. Sit up at the front deck for maximum exposure and fun or help the crew man the cockpit in the back. The choice is yours.
We will do at least 2 snorkel stops during each of our Whitsunday tours. While there is coral reef in many bays in the Whitsundays, we try to visit the most secluded bays with the highest volume of colorful coral and fish and the best visibility. As ‘On Ice’ takes only 10 passengers, we are allowed to visit more bays than the other boats. We cater for 1st timers, weak swimmers and adventurous snorkelers alike.
Hill Inlet Lookout
On the northern end of Whitehaven Beach, one finds the Hill Inlet Lookout with its swirling sands. We make every effort to ensure you get to the best part of the beach at the best time of the day. If possible, we try to access the lookout in the afternoon rather than the morning as there will be considerably less people there.
Whitehaven Beach is the jewel of the Whitsundays. We believe it warrants much more than just a quick photograph and walk around. Starting at the south end of Whitehaven Beach, we can off load our water sports equipment and take you the entire length of Whitehaven Beach. Our mission is to experience Whitehaven Beach like no one else has before.
Stand Up Paddling – SUP
‘Stand up paddling’ allows a greater view of the natural environment than kayaking and there is no better way to explore the bays of the Whitsundays than on the latest boards. A great new water sport to explore the bays or simply paddle along Whitehaven Beach. Our crew will give you an introduction and be by your side while you paddle along or catch small waves. Amazingly easy and lots of fun!
Aqua glider “lanai”
Our lazyvity toy, also called ‘reef lounge’, is simply fun! The aqua glider is a completely new concept in aquatic enjoyment. It is a large multi-purpose water sports platform – powered by our stealth sea scooter, if you like. Slide on for a rest and a spot of sun baking while snorkeling and let our crew point out the marine life.
Windsurfing connects your hands directly to the wind and your feet directly to the water. This is the most exciting and purest form of sailing. We carry equipment for beginners or advanced. If you’re up for it, ask the crew to have a go.
Take your friend or paddle off alone. Our completely see through kayak lets you experience the marine life of the coral reef without getting into the water, although getting wet might still occur! Get even closer to our fishy friends by lying down and looking through the Plexiglas. Some call it the largest snorkel mask in the world!
“The Name is Bond.” Who hasn’t watched a James Bond film as the legendary special agent zooms about underwater on his DPV / Underwater Scooter, and thought, “Mmmmm! I could do that!” Well now is your chance! So your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to glide through the water, effortlessly exploring in true James Bond style!
