Ocean Spirit Cruises Daily to the Great Barrier Reef.

Ocean Spirit Cruises in Cairns has three catamarans. They offer two different tours daily, and with these cruises you get the best service, the best boats and some of the best locations.

The first cruise goes out to Michaelmas Cay, on the very edge of the Cairns Great Barrier Reef. This cay is a bird sanctuary, and is home to the 5th most important seabird rookery in the world. It is a beautiful place to spend a morning, and diving is also an option.

To start the day on either tours, you board at around 8am in the morning for a departure at 8. 30am. A hot drink awaits you onboard.

On the way out you can relax as well as participating in the usual safety briefings and snorkel and dive presentations.

Once out at the reef, there are plenty of great activities. There is fish feeding, semi-submersible rides(for those who don’t like getting wet!), guided snorkelling tours and even trying scuba diving. There is really something for everybody.

Lunch is a beautiful smorgasbord of mouth watering salads, cold meats and local fruit, and a fully catered bar is onboard.

In the afternoon there is more time to participate in the activities that are available to you, including just relaxing on the cays and catching a few rays.

You depart the island at around 2. 30pm, and on the way home there is onboard entertainment by a ukelele player, as well as a complimentary refreshent. You arrive back in to Cairns at 5pm.

The deck area is huge, with lots of room to spread out your things.

The interior is air-conditioned and a great place to get out of the sun if you get too much of it… And beleive me, you can get too much of it in Cairns. There are many things to read on the boats so that you can educate yourself on what you may see while you are out there, and there are videographers and photographers as well who can help you take home some great memories of your time on the reef.

Transfers to and from youraccommodation in Cairns are included.
