    Ocean Spirit Michaelmas Cay Cruise

    Experience a leisurely day on the Great Barrier Reef when you set sail to picturesque Michaelmas Cay aboard the beautiful sailing catamaran, Ocean Spirit.

    Encircled by a fringing reef teeming with colourful marine life, Michaelmas Cay is also a sanctuary for migratory seabirds. To protect this unique environment, access to the cay is limited and restricted to a roped area.

    During the day a shuttle boat will transfer you to and from the cay’s beach.

    Snorkel, see the coral gardens from the semi-submersible and observe the island bird life.

    Or if you prefer just relax on the beach or onboard and enjoy a leisurely day on the Great Barrier Reef. Homeward bound, enjoy a complimentary glass of sparkling wine under the sails.

    This experience is part of our Low-Footprint Adventures range because it’s ECO certified by Ecotourism Australia.
