I went with Seastar Cruises in September 2017. They go to the cay for snorkelling. You have to ask the skipper to have someone take you around the cay in a small boat to view what birds are there. I’d check with them direct about the current arrangement.

I wondered about a hybrid, but this post from March 2021 covers that:

Why the ?Red-breasted Meidum Goose? is probably not an extinct species

Hi there...
Hoping to go to Michelmaus Cay off Cairns in the next week or two if possible...
- Just wondering is it worth it?
- Are there any good seabirds on the sand spit? Is it the right time of year?
- What?s the best way to get there/cheapest tour option as we don?t have our own boat??

Thanks in advance
Kirri ?
