Michaelmas Cay is a bird rookery. Common birds here include the Sooty Tern, Lesser and Greater Frigatebirds, Common Noddies and Brown Boobies.
The snorkelling is good too at Michaelmas Cay, but even better is Hastings Reef (and much better still is Lady Elliot Island at the southern end of the Great Barrier Reef).
Several companies travel to Michaelmas Cay. Some are large. Some are small. Some are more 'bird friendly' e.g. circumnavigate the Cay so the birds can be seen from the boat when the tide is high enough (Seastar).
