    book now

    Experience true island life while visiting some of the beautiful islands of Eleuthera!

    Our first stop on this journey is Meek’s Patch, where we visit the Spanish Wells Swimming Pigs. These cousins of the Exuma Swimming Pigs love to show visitors around their secluded island. Take time to feed them goodies, snap photos and enjoy the stunning beaches.

    Once we have spent some time with our pig friends, we head to lunch on mainland Spanish Wells. Here you’ll enjoy delicious cuisine and have a chance to explore the quaint community.

    After lunch, we head towards a secluded beach or sandbar (tide dependent) where you can spend some time relaxing and sunbathing, before heading back to the Nassau Harbour.

    Each journey between stops is just over an hour. The above itinerary’s order of stops is subject to change based on tides. Full restroom facilities are available at Bay Street Marina and the restaurant visited for lunch.
