Calling nature-lovers, snorkel enthusiasts, wanna-be-divers, and soon-to-be sailors—this luxury cruise to Michaelmas Cay caters to all of the above. Glide across crystal-clear waters and learn about vibrant marine life as you steer towards the coral gardens of the Great Barrier Reef.

Find a seat aboard the Ocean Spirit, a 105-foot (32-m) stunner, and set sail for Michaelmas Cay. A national park and protected sanctuary for migratory birds, this slice of heaven hosts as many winged beauties as undersea finned species. After you drop anchor, you have the freedom to explore however you please.

Tune in to a snorkel demonstration, strap on your mask, and immerse yourself in the colorful and vast underwater coral universe, teeming with marine life. For an equally stunning experience, hop into a semi-submersible vessel for a guided coral viewing tour—all while staying dry.

Come mid-day, head back to the ship to enjoy a seasonal buffet lunch. Peruse the selection of hot and cold entrees—fresh seafood included. When you’ve had your fill, venture to shore to watch the sea birds soaring overhead, or simply laze on the soft sands of the island's pristine beaches with your favorite book.

For a more adventurous trip into the ocean blue, choose the optional introductory scuba dive, and journey deeper into the cay's magnificent waters.
