Seastar Cruises a boutique reef tour, combines the outer Great Barrier Reef with a pristine coral cay island. In a fast air-conditioned vessel, arrive at magnificent Michaelmas Cay, the largest of the local uninhabited coral cays. With only a maximum of 35 passengers on board, this small group specialist, is the first boat to arrive. Take the ferry to the beach and snorkel in the calm & sheltered waters of the coral cay.
After an enjoyable time here, it is a short 20 minute cruise to the splendid Hastings Reef, sitting on the very outer edge. This is where the corals thrive, well out from the coast away from the influence the rivers and streams, adjacent to the clear waters of the Pacific Ocean. A very different reef to Michaelmas, there is more snorkelling or stay dry in the Glass Bottom Boat.
With 2 1/2 hours at each location, there is ample time to enjoy all that each offers...A great day out.
