The experience was all round amazing! The staff were so nice and exciting to be around, never a dull moment. The food was very good, the drinks were very nice and strong! Pigs were a fantastic experience and the trainers treated them with so much respect and they all looked so happy! The beach was nice but the sea was a little choppy due to a hurricane somewhere miles off the island. The snorkeling was great, they were happy for me to take off my life vest and dive under water to the bottom BUT always made me feel safe with nothing to worry about. The whole experience was an absolute pleasure from beginning to the end and its a shame its over. I planned a proposal with the staff and they made it such a lovely romantic set up with a pig and writing in the sand with our own personal part of the beach to make it all happen. Me and my new fiance couldn't thank them enough, the whole experience was an absolute blast . Would highly recommend to anyone wanting to swim with pigs!!

This was a great excursion. The staff were all great! The food was really good! And the pigs were so cute!! The pigs come out every 30 minutes so you have plenty of opportunities to see them. The only complaint I would have is that frozen drinks are not included. Overall a great day!

What an amazing excursion. Been to a lot of Caribbean islands and on a lot of tours. But I have to say this was one of the best ones I’ve been on. There is literally something for everyone. Well worth the money. The staff is very kind and attentive and everything was well kept and clean. Can’t wait to come back! I would 100% recommend if you are coming to the Bahamas!
