Day Trips - Ocean Spirit Cruises

Ocean Spirit Ocean Spirit I is a very large sailing catamaran that takes passengers out to the beautiful Michaelmas Cay.

Departing daily from Cairns, the 32 metre luxury sailing catamaran, Ocean Spirit, will give you a day to remember with a wide range of activities to fully experience Michaelmas Cay's unique reef environment. This unique location, with its picturesque vegetated sand cay encircled by a spectacular fringing reef teeming with colourful marine life, is an important protected National Park
sanctuary for migratory seabirds.

Walking amongst birds on the beach of Michaelmas Cay

Snorkel over coral gardens, cruise in the semi-submersible, watch the fish feeding presentation and explore the island sanctuary. For the more adventurous, introductory diving is available. Or if you prefer, you can relax and soak up the tropical atmosphere under the sails and enjoy a leisurely day on the Great Barrier Reef. A delicious hot and cold buffet lunch along with morning and afternoon teas are included in your day.
