Seastar Cruises premium all-inclusive reef cruise combines the outer Great Barrier Reef with a coral cay island tour at great prices. The fast air-conditioned Seastar 1 can take you from Cairns to magnificent Michaelmas Cay, the largest of the local uninhabited coral cays. Cruising past Green Island, Upolu cay and Oyster reef Seastar is the first boat to arrive. There is enough time to go snorkelling, do an introductory dive, relax on the beach of the Island or join a tour in the Glass Bottom Boat. After an enjoyable time here it is only a short 20 minute cruise to the splendid Hastings Reef sitting on the very outer edge for more snorkelling and diving.
