1. From Nassau: Exuma Swimming Pigs, Sharks and More
Enjoy a tour that includes everything you need for a full day of Exuma Cays awesomeness. Experience the Exumas from the perspective of a local guide, and make 7 different stops at local highlights. This bucket list experience includes everything from swimming with sharks at Compass Cay to feeding the most famous celebrities in the Bahamas: the original swimming pigs. Start your day on cloud nine by flying into Staniel Cay from Nassau. Upon arrival, you'll be escorted to your captain to start your day of adventure. The order of the tour depends greatly on the tides, so your expert captain will ensure you get the most out of the day. Meet the local swimming pigs and have an opportunity to feed them, as well as take a selfie with them. Next up, delight in the thrill of swimming with sharks. Don't worry: these sharks are super friendly and will even come up to the docks to greet you and offer you their back to pet. For more wildlife encounters, head to see the indigenous iguanas on Guana Cay. An adventure in the Exuma Cays is not complete without some snorkeling. View the gorgeous Thunderball Grotto where movies like Splash, 007 Thunderball, and many others were filmed. Later, enjoy a dreamy stop on a white sandy beach at the mile-long beautiful sandbar. After your adventure, you'll be taken for a local Bahamian lunch (not included) before heading back to the airport for your return flight to Nassau.
