Ocean Spirit Michaelmas Cay Cruises

Departing daily from Cairns, set sail aboard the 32 metre (105ft) luxury sailing catamaran, Ocean Spirit, for a day to remember at picturesque Michaelmas Cay on the Great Barrier Reef. Be active and enjoy all the included activities - snorkel directly from the beach in the cay’s protected shallow waters, cruise in the semi-submersible for a diver’s view of the reef, watch the fish feeding presentation and discover the fascinating birdlife on the island. Or if you prefer just relax, soak up the tropical atmosphere under the sails and enjoy a leisurely day on the Great Barrier Reef! The choice is yours!
Michaelmas Cay is a picturesque vegetated sand cay encircled by a spectacular fringing reef of beautiful coral gardens teeming with colourful marine life. A National Park, it is also a most important protected sanctuary for migratory seabirds.
For the more adventurous, you can experience even more of the Great Barrier Reef with an exciting introductory scuba dive. The shallow waters off Michaelmas Cay offer a perfect environment for first time divers. No experience is necessary and you’ll have a highly skilled dive instructor by your side for a fully supervised introduction to the world of Scuba and underwater delights of the Reef.
