Visited Michaelmas Cay, water around the beach was crystal clear. Nice to be able to swim with the fish and see stingrays. Coral was beautiful. Well worth the two trip from Cairns.

we went with Ocean Spirit and i would highly recommend going to Michaelmas Cay with this company (there are only two companies that can go to this Cay at the moment). Everyone on board is extremely friendly and helpful. In this all-inclusive day trip there are simply so many things to do/view/experience you hardly realise the bumpy sea travel (sea sickness).

Demonstration for equipment use were done to perfection and with great humour; Food and tea/snack were plentiful and delicious; The island itself not to mention is a must-go! When Ocean Spirit is there, no other boat is there so you basically OWN the whole island!!!!!

all in all, wonderful day trip, well worth the $$, would strongly recommend anyone to go.

Great place to explore the reef and see the birds. You're only allowed in the roped in area to protect the wildlife. Recommend going here with Seastar!

Great day. Lovely snorkeling and the benefit of being able to rest on the island if needed. Birds are beautiful and we didn't find them smelly or bothersome. Beautiful part of the world.

Bird sanctuary on the sand and brilliant and beautiful shallow reefs for snorkeling and diving. Take your camera.
