We are traveling to Cairns in late June. Any opinions on Michaelmas Cay or a different tour. My husband and I our strong swimmers and comfortable with snorkeling. Our kids are fair swimmers though have no fear of deep water and are definitely looking forward to snorkeling. We will not dive just snorkel. Any suggestions for our group???
I thought about Michaelmas because they could actually walk in to snorkel but was unsure how good it would be. My husband and I did this once before (12 years ago) and thought it was fabulous but have no recollection where we were in the reef- I did see a black tipped reef shark, giant clams, turtles, zillion fish etc on that trip and we did have a small beach area to stand on but we started from the boat.
