Michaelmas Cay Reef Cruise Cairns: Ocean Spirit Cruises

YOUR DAY EXPLAINED:

Ocean Spirit Cruises is a luxury sailing catamaran that takes visitors to the Great Barrier Reef daily. The ship departs Cairns at 8:30am in the morning. It takes 1 hour 15 minutes to arrive at a small secluded sand cay called Michaelmas Cay.

This sand cay is a protected marine reserve. Half of the sand cay is partitioned off for the native sea birds the live and nest here. By stopping people visiting half the Island, the sea birds have managed to thrive into a large population. Often baby chicks can be seen living in the nests. This trip is great for people who wish to learn about the reef and the land-dwelling animals that also call the Great Barrier Reef home.

The reefs surrounding the island grow very close, so it is easy to walk into the water from the beach, put on your snorkel, fins and mask and enjoy the beautiful coral formations in very clear shallow water.

Many different species of reef fish can be found and observed at Michaelmas Cay. You can find Ocean going Mackerel, Anenome Fish, Coral Trout, Giant Trevally and Permits just to name a few.

After arriving at the Island, the Ocean Spirit boat will Moore up they will do a small fish feed to get you excited and then take you over to the beach in the man-made beach buggy. This vessel makes it very easy to get on and off the boat and over to the Island.

The beach buggy comes and goes back and forth to the Island all day so you can spend time on the Island, try snorkeling, try bird watching or just relax on the white sandy beach. Lunch is served on board the main Ocean Spirit vessel and consists of Prawns, hot and cold meats, salads and fresh fruit. It is a large buffet that also provides tea & coffee and fresh water.

Enjoy 5 hours at Michaelmas Cay before setting sail to come back to Cairns at 5:30pm. I would class this as a nice relaxed peaceful day on a white sandy beach with crystal clear water. Great for singles, couples and people who really want to relax and enjoy an Island, The Reef and the Wildlife the lives on the Cay.
