Michaelmas Cay is a low lying vegetated sand cay encircled by a spectacular fringing reef. It stretches over 300 m in length is a classified as a National Park and a protected sanctuary for migratory seabirds.
Enjoy snorkelling in the cay’s protected shallow waters, try an introductory scuba dive in the fringing reefs, cruise in the semi-sub for a diver’s view of the reef, watch the fish feeding presentation, observe the bird life or just chill out on Ocean Spirit’s spacious decks or on the beach. Throughout the day, the ‘beach buggy shuttle’ will transfer you between Ocean Spirit and the beach.
