Swim With The Pigs!

The number one thing visitors and locals to The Bahamas want to see is the Swimming Pigs! These unique animals love visitors, and this is the best way to see them from Nassau!

Join us as we zoom through the stunning Exuma Cays, with stops to explore the beauty up close.

Our first stop is to see the Bahamian Rock Iguanas – secluded on their very own island in paradise. From there we head to the main attraction at Big Major Cay (a.k.a. ‘Pig Beach’)– home to the world-famous Swimming Pigs! Enjoy interacting with these guys, feeding them, and listening to them tell tales of being marooned on an island!

Afterwards, the amazing Staniel Cay Yacht Club will whip us up some lunch, and sometimes we’ll see their frequent nurse shark visitors and sting ray friends. Lunch is included in the trip price and food options will be presented at booking.

The day continues by returning to the Northern Exuma Cays, with a brief stop at a beach or sandbank.

The last leg takes you back to Nassau, where the sun setting over the capital of the Bahamas welcomes you back to Nassau Harbour!

Each journey between stops is just over an hour on the unique saddle-style seats of our Parker RIBs.
