Full-Day Small-Group Tour to Pig Beach by Powerboat

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
Welcome to the hottest new activity to hit the shores of Nassau Bahamas. 5 Incredible island stops in one amazing day! Your journey will take you a full 150 plus nautical miles, round trip by power boat into the depths of tranquility, excitement and overwhelming adventure. You will experience wildlife up close swimming with sharks, and of course the main event, swim with the pigs!

Along the journey, you will also enjoy a water sightseeing tour of the Exuma cays hidden away in a secluded paradise of crystal clear turquoise ocean.
  • Travel between highlights of the Bahamas with ease aboard a powerboat
  • See more of the Bahamas in less time—five island stops in one day
  • An activity-packed tour ideal for first-time visitors
  • Unobstructed views of the Exuma Cays from a boat at sea
What to Expect
Your morning starts when you meet your guide at the Nassau Paradise Island Ferry Terminal. Board a powerboat and set off for the Exumas, an archipelago of 365 tiny Bahamian islands and cays. After a sightseeing tour of the Exuma Cays from the water, stop at one of the small islands to see the Bahamian rock iguana in its natural habitat and watch a feeding demonstration. Then cruise to Pig Beach on Big Major Cay to see the Bahamas’ swimming pigs and splash around with them in the clear, waist-deep water. Next, stop for lunch (included) and then cruise to Compass Cay to swim with nurse sharks. That leaves just enough time to stop at a hidden beach or swim around a shallow sandbar before heading back to Nassau to end your tour.
