1 Day Ocean Spirit Michaelmas Cay Cruise from  Cairns

Adults from $219

Experience Michaelmas Cay’s unique reef environment - a pristine sand cay surrounded by fringing reef and a protected sanctuary for migratory seabirds.

Set sail aboard the beautiful 32-metre sailing catamaran, Ocean Spirit, to experience Michaelmas Cay’s unique reef environment - a pristine sand cay surrounded by fringing reef and a protected sanctuary for migratory seabirds. Your cruise will combine motor and sailing, depending on the day’s conditions.

  • 8.5 hours experience with 4 hours on the Reef
  • Snorkelling equipment and instructions
  • Marine Biologist presentation
  • Semi-submersible coral viewing tour with commentary
  • Hot and cold buffet lunch
  • A glass of complimentary sparkling wine served on the homeward journey, cheese and crackers.

Be active and enjoy all the included activities – snorkel in the cay’s protected shallow waters, cruise in the semi-sub for a diver’s view of the reef, watch the fish feeding presentation and observe the island bird life. Throughout the day, the “beach buggy shuttle” will transfer you between Ocean Spirit and the beach. To protect this renowned bird sanctuary, access on the cay is limited to the roped beach area. If you prefer a more leisurely day on the Great Barrier Reef, relax on the beach or onboard Ocean Spirit’s spacious decks. The choice is yours!
