Full description

If you haven’t seen the pictures on friend’s social media feeds, or in the pages of travel magazines, you’ll be in for a wonderful surprise. Nassau’s northern coast is home to Pigs Beach, where beachgoers can meet, feed, and yes, even swim, with the local indigenous pigs. Your day starts from a ferry ride from Nassau’s bustling harbor to Pearl Island. From there, you board our ferry and comfortably cruise to your destination for the thrill of a lifetime. Pigs Beach, is just a short five-minute trip away. After arriving, you’ll meet the local “hosts” and enjoy frolicking with them in their natural habitat. Make sure to take pictures and create memories that will last a lifetime. After your encounter with your new four-legged friends, spend what’s left of the day lounging in the sun, back at Pearl Island. Our quaint and quiet, sun-drenched retreat is the perfect way to unwind away from the din of Nassau’s busy streets. Sip a cocktail beneath of shade of a leafy palm tree, sunbathe on our powdery white-sand beaches, or take a dip in the azure-blue waters. You can also enjoy a freshly prepared lunch of Bahamian staples, like BBQ Chicken, Peas N’ Rice, Fish Fingers, Coleslaw. It’s all served on the patio overlooking the lighthouse and ocean. After lunch you can kayak along the flourishing coast lines, or just lounge around the property on one of our many plush chairs. On Pearl Island time flies, but memories will last a lifetime.

Incredibly FUN!! Professional, well run. Exceptionally friendly "pig guys". BEAUTIFUL water, relaxed boat ride. Very apparent that there was a mutual love between the pigs and the crew. Certainly one of the most unique experiences I've had. Pearl Island time was GREAT. Plenty of time to explore and play in the water and/ or have a drink. Lunch also REALLY good.

A very memorable day! We were able to kayak and enjoy the beach and lighthouse at Pearl island. Lunch was tasty. The swimming with the pigs was such a fun experience. My daughter loved it and none of us will ever forget it! I already have friends asking for the booking info!

My family and I enjoyed this tour very much. It's a great opportunity to see the piglets and have a relaxed day for a reasonable rate (compared to all the offers on the islands). Enjoyed Pearl Island a lot, the food was really good and the piglets are the best. Really friendly staff all over and great captain aboard. Remember your sun screen and bring a mask if you wish to find conches on the sea bottom. Really reccomend it!
