    Viajar de a 2 explores with Harbour Safaris!

    This fun couple joined us back in May on two of our Harbour Safaris tours!

    To read excepts from their blog, see below:

    Rose Island Beach & Snorkel Tour

    Terminamos en Rose Island para disfrutar de un mar excepcionalmente celeste, snacks y cervezas locales. En pocas palabras: Relajo total, yo sé que tú te lo mereces.

    Exuma Swimming Pigs Excursion

    Existen varias teorías que explican por qué estos cerditos llegaron al medio de la nada, en una isla alejada de la civilización. A un paraíso exótico.  La más aceptada es que una embarcación los transportaba para luego comérselos. Los marinos los dejaron en la isla y volverían por ellos, pero naufragaron.  Sean cual sean sus raíces, ahí viven felices, libres y muy bien alimentados.

    A lo que vinimos: Pig Beach. Fuimos los primeros en llegar (estratégicamente nuestro tour programó llegar antes que otros operadores para que el grupo tenga más tiempo a solas con los chanchitos). Desembarcamos en una playa pequeña con unos 15 cerditos aproximadamente. Algunos en la arena, otros en el mar. Eso sí, ninguno quieto, todos de un lado para el otro. Unos locos.

    Nassau to Exuma – Best Ways to Travel

    You’ve booked your airline, reserved the hotel room, and are ready to settle down with a Goombay Smash and swim with the pigs on the pristine beaches of the Bahamas!

    Wait – you’re staying in Nassau?!?  The legendary swimming pigs make their home on Big Major Cay, which is in the Exuma Cays!

    How do you get from Nassau to Exuma?  Not to worry, we have the answers for you!

    • Take a pig beach excursion from Nassau to Exuma:
    • Fly away for the day to Staniel Cay:
      • You can hop aboard a small plane to fly to Staniel Cay, and spend the day loafing around the island and catch a ride a short hop over to Big Major to swim with the pigs
    • Fly to Georgetown and take a half-day adventure:
      • Flights from Nassau to Georgetown are plentiful, including on the national airline Bahamasair and smaller airlines such as SkyBahamas.  Once there, you can take a half day trip with one of the many operators, such as Exuma Water Sports, and be back in time for dinner!
      • Stay overnight or for the weekend at Grand Isle Resort or Sandals Emerald Bay and experience the friendly Family Island atmosphere!
    • Not so interested in the swimming pigs?

    A recent review of our Exuma Swimming Pigs tour:

    Wow wow wow!! The best experience of my life. We came to the Bahamas on the 4th September and landed to an email asking to bring the tour forward as Hurricane Irma was on the way for our original booking date, which of course we didn’t mind-this was my dream and nothing was stopping me. So firstly Darren and Shiv we absolutely brilliant throughout and made sure we was all ok. We got going and out first stop was to see the iguanas, which were pretty cool, then it was off to see the piggies…and I can’t even begin to tell you how amazing they are…it was everything and more than I ever expected, a real dream come true. They are incredible, and they are so looked after, I even had a little piggy cuddle up to me when I gave him a little ear rub. There was a big mumma ready to pop, so some of you will be so lucky to see he piglets….I could of actually spent all day there if I’m honest. We then went for lunch and to see the nurse sharks which was lovely, the food was delicious, and getting in the water with the sharks was so much fun. We then left and went on to a private beach…and OMG it was something out of this world…breath taking!!! I cannot recommend Harbour Safaris enough, the communication from when we booked with them up until the date we went was amazing and the tour was even better than I can describe. You really made my honeymoon one to remember, and I really hope to come back and do this all over again. – Steph

     

    Our newest tour, the Spanish Wells Day Away trip is also an amazing experience!

    My husband and I took the newer Spanish Wells/Pigs boat trip. It was a little bit shorter and less expensive than the trip to see the pigs in Exuma (which was sold out the week we were there). We had a blast! Swimming with the pigs was fun, even though I got a bite on my finger from one of the little guys. Use the sticks when feeding the pigs as they can easily mistake your finger for one of the turkey hot dogs! There was lovely beach on the other side of “pig island” which we also got to enjoy for a few minutes. Lunch at Wreckers in Spanish Wells was delicious! The three couples and our two captains were the only people there for lunch on this particular Tuesday. My BBQ chicken pizza was excellent (but huge)! After lunch we visited a sandbar and found some sand dollars! The colors of the water and sand could only be described as “otherworldly!” Paradise, indeed! We had a great trip with this company! – Courileigh, TripAdvisor

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY HARBOUR SAFARIS!

    Wow, wow, wow! What a year it has been for us here at Harbour Safaris!

    It’s flown by so fast, we can barely believe it!

    In just one short year:

    • We have grown both our team and our fleet (see ‘Empress’ in the photos below)
    • We have established ourselves as one of the Top 10 Boat Tours out of Nassau on Trip Advisor.
    • And, most recently, we survived our first (and hopefully last) major storm, Hurricane Matthew. All of our boats are intact and all of our crew are safe and sound… including our famous buddies, the Swimming Pigs.  Nassau, Freeport, and Andros continue to be under duress from the storm and we ask you donate through the Rotary Club of East Nassau or your local Rotary Club to assist those in need.

    We are so excited for where we are and where we are going. Thank you for joining us on this journey! There are so many exciting things to come so stay tuned and check our website for regular updates.

    ~The Harbour Safaris Team

    Harbour Safaris Reviews

    A message from our President

    As we head into our 8th month of operating tours and excursions in the Bahamas, I thought I would take a moment to express how impressed I am with our team and our offerings.

    Captain Daron and his first mates, primarily Craig and Grouper, have done a wonderful job sharing the real Bahamas with our guests.  Our tours of Exuma get fantastic reviews on multiple platforms, including TripAdvisor and Facebook.

    Most of our guests also will interact directly with our operations manager Joanne and office manager Heather Joy.  These two are the driving force behind our bookings and their knowledge and experience of our tours is usually the deciding factor in purchasing for those on the fence.  A large portion of our customers also get to meet Joanne, as she regularly greets the boat either departing for or returning from the Exuma Cays.

    We also have an internal rating system for guests who have booked directly through us, which has a consistent 5-star rating for our Exuma excursions, harbour tours, and custom charters.

    I have shared below a handful of our reviews. I encourage you as a potential (or returning!) customer to take a look at our Facebook and Tripadvisor pages and after your experience to provide us with any feedback you may have about Harbour Safaris!

    Lee
    President

    “Best Part of the Bahamas”

    We did the day trip to swim with the pigs and it ended up being our favorite part of the entire vacation.

    The water on our way to the first island was really choppy so it made for a rough ride, but that was an adventure in itself. I do recommend that you pay attention to the warnings about bad backs or injuries though, because you really do get tossed around a bit. The view during the entire boat trip was to die for though. Staring at that crystal blue water never gets old.

    The first stop was to feed the iguanas. This was hilarious. They come running at you looking for grapes and they really are kind of cute. The island we stop at for this has an incredible view and the pretties teal colored water.

    The lunch stop was really cool. The yacht club bar that we ate at was the most “Bahamian-style” experience we had all week. I loved the open walls right on the water, the service was great, and the food was delicious. I highly recommend the conch po boy or catch of the day. The nurse sharks that are swimming around are really cool as well.

    Finally, the main attraction…swimming with the pigs! Once they hear the boat they come running, jump in the water, and swim toward you waiting for food. They are much bigger than I expected but are still so cute!

    I cannot write a true review about Harbour Safaris without a shout out to the first mate and captain. Craig, the first mate, did a fantastic job pointing things out and keeping the entire tour “chill” and exactly what we wanted. It didn’t feel touristy which was amazing. The islands were not packed with people, we were actually the only ones there.

    I highly recommend this tour if you have the day to spend, but be prepared to be exhausted when you get back. That much time in the sun and on the water really takes all the energy you have!

    Swimming Pigs Day Excursion

    The beauty of the Exuma islands speak for themselves, but our 1st mate, Craig, made the trip extra special with his positive, vibrant personality and honest love for the Bahamas. – Amanda

    Harbour Safaris day excursion to Exuma was fantastic. They were very professional and knowledgeable. We would recommend them to anyone in Nassau who is looking for a great day of adventure. – Fred

    We had a wonderful time on this excursion!! The boat ride was fun (fast & bumpy), the crew was great. We stopped to see and feed the iguanas first, then to Staniel Cay for lunch – we were able to see and touch the nurse sharks that were swimming in the area. After lunch we saw the pigs and fed them. Then to a small island where we spent some time on the beach and saw fish, a stingray, a starfish and collected shells. Overall, the trip was one of the highlights of our week in Nassau. I would definitely recommend it! – Valerie
