Michaelmas Cay & Paradise Great Barrier Reef Cruise
If you’d like to go snorkelling or scuba diving in the Great Barrier Reef, there’s nothing like the Paradise Reef garden, about 2 nautical miles north of Michaelmas Cay. For diving enthusiasts, these are top Cairns attractions and one of the best things to do in Cairns, considering its exclusivity.
Passions of Paradise has an exclusive permit to organise reef cruises to Paradise Reef, giving its guests a fabulous opportunity to explore the Great Barrier Reef through snorkelling and scuba diving in the midst of a coral garden that’s still in magnificent condition.
Michaelmas Cay, home to a host of migratory birds, is a sandy lagoon that is wind protected with absolutely calm waters, enhancing the snorkel and scuba dive experience for visitors. You will find yourself swimming alongside sea turtles, giant trevally, bat fish, reef sharks and numerous varieties of colourful reef fish – an experience that will be etched in your memory for a long time to come.
Passions of Paradise works in tandem with the Queensland National Parks and the Federal Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority to preserve the cay that is endowed with a wealth of natural beauty, making it the perfect reef destination for you!
