    Stop: 6 hours - Admission included
    The Sandy Toes Full Day Excursion is an awesome private island day experience that provides an escape from the hustle and bustle of the hotel and cruise crowds. This 6-hour excursion includes a scenic 30-minute boat ride to and from Rose Island and welcome drink upon arrival. Once at Sandy Toes, an array of activities are available to our guests including our guided snorkelling tour, private beach, hammock garden, and our very own Rose Island Swimming Pigs! We also include a delicious Bahamian buffet lunch, served on our southern pavilion overlooking picturesque Lower Harbour, and feature our very own Sandy Toes Gift Shop with one-of-a-kind souvenirs. River tube floats and kayaks are available for rent, and we also offer beachside massages treatments for an additional fee. Fresh water showers and air-conditioned bathrooms are also available on the island for the comfort of our guests! Our Beach Bar is a great social atmosphere where you can mingle with our friendly staff or meet fellow travelers! WiFi and DirecTV services are also available at the Beach Bar. Our Sandy Toes Swimming Pigs….only 30 minutes by boat (not 2 hours!): Experience a true taste of The Bahamas, with a day at Sandy Toes. Sandy Toes is home to a sanctuary of protected wildlife including our Royal Peacocks, curly tail lizards, ocean reef life and our beloved “farm–saved” beach-going, swimming pigs! Meet Babe, Wilbur, Pumba, Larry, Curly, Mo, Ginger, Pepper, and Spice, our 9 awesome Rose Island piggies! These big guys and some little guys are vet checked and cared for on the regular, and only given the cleanest diet served with plenty of love, sunshine, and sunscreen (yes, sunscreen!) With tons of space to run around, the ocean next door to take a dip in, and a protected and shaded pad to call their own, they’re living the dream on Rose Island! Come see for yourself at Sandy Toes….it’s the perfect way to spend your day!

We booked this excursion while we were in Nassau with Royal Caribbean. There was no comparison to the value, the views, the lunch and the time with the PIGS! Book this excursion, you will not be disappointed. You will have your own time with the pigs. If it’s swimming you

The service was amazing throughout and the employees looked happy to be there all day regardless of the time. The pigs were amazing and we loved getting up close and being able to swim with them! We wanted to do the snorkelling as it was one of the main things that drew us to
