Stunning underwater adventures on Michaelmas Cay

When in Cairns you absolutely must go and see Michaelmas Cay, just an hour and a half’s cruise out on a boat and you’ll be seeing the marvels of the underwater ecosystem and a sand island that’s home to thousands of birds.

The reefs and coral formations just off the shore of the small island are a wonder. Fish of all shapes, sizes and colour swim right past as you snorkel, and with the seabed only around 5 metres beneath you, you get an unparalleled look at the underwater world beneath the waves.
