Michaelmas Cay Cruises 

Set sail to Michaelmas Cay on the Great Barrier Reef aboard the beautiful sailing catamaran Ocean Spirit. Snorkel or dive in the fringing reef, filled with vibrant marine life, or spend some time observing the seabirds that call this protected sanctuary home. 

After a 2 hour motorised sail onboard the 32 meter sailing Catamaran, Ocean Spirit, you will arrive at Michaelmas Cay where there is so much to see and do. Enjoy snorkeling in the cay’s protected shallow waters, try an introductory scuba dive in the fringing reefs, cruise in the semi-sub for a diver’s view of the reef, watch the fish feeding presentation, observe the birdlife or just chill out on Ocean Spirit’s spacious decks or on the beach. Throughout the day, the ‘beach buggy shuttle’ will transfer you between Ocean Spirit and the beach.
