Duration: 30 minutes

Stop At: Michaelmas Cay, Great Barrier Reef, Cairns, Queensland 4870 Australia

Located 22 nautical miles (40 km) from Cairns, the same as the distance across the English Channel, and close to the outer reef systems, Michaelmas Cay is the largest of the uninhabited coral cays in the Cairns region; in fact it is huge in comparison.

Seastar is the first vessel to arrive at Michaelmas Cay. Very few tour vessels are now permitted access to this sensitive island and now there are only two which travel daily that are permitted the right to use and access the Cay.

Duration: 2 hours

Stop At: Great Barrier Reef, Cairns, Queensland Australia

Our second location where we stop is Hastings reef, part of the outer Great Barrier Reef.

Hastings Reef is located 30 nautical miles out from Cairns and is a typical outer reef, on most days a line of breakers marks where the deep ocean swells break onto the reef wall. The reef itself is shallow on top, with steep sides reminiscent of cliffs falling away into the surrounding water.

Duration: 2 hours
