OCEAN SPIRIT CRUISES MICHAELMAS CAY:

Set sail aboard a 32 metre luxury sailing catamaran for a day to remember with a wide range of activities.  Michaelmas Cay is a unique reef environment.  Be active and enjoy all included activities - snorkel, cruise in the semi-submersible for a diver's view of the reef, watch the fish feeding and discover the island bird life.  Explore 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 a spectacular fringing reef of magical coral gardens teeming with an incredible diversity of marine life.  The Cay is a protected seabird sanctuary playing host to over 20,000 migratory seabirds, one of the most important nesting sites in the Southern Hemisphere.

First time swimmers and non-swimmers can learn how to snorkel from the shallows of the cay.
