A woman has been rescued while the search for a man continues after the pair were reported missing from a sinking vessel in water off Queensland's Fraser Island.

Two people were on board the vessel of the northern tip of the island, also known as K'gari, when they radioed for help about 8.30pm on Sunday, police said.

Police and volunteer marine services began an air and water search before rescue helicopter crews plucked the woman from the water about 11.30am on Monday.

She will be airlifted to Bundaberg Hospital for treatment.

The search involving multiple aircraft and vessels continues for a missing male.
