Once boarded you will be off to Eleuthera heading north-west out of Nassau. Ride time is approximately 90 minutes. Your first stop on this full day tour is Meeks Patch Island. Meeks Patch is home to swimming pigs, ducks, a dog, and even a turkey. However, the island is most well known for it’s very friendly swimming pigs. At this stop guests will have time to swim with the pigs, feed them, and check out the other animal residents.
After you've had your time with the pigs, you will be off to nearby Spanish Wells for a harbour tour. Once you arrive in the harbour of Spanish Wells you will see a vast difference from the hustle and bustle of Nassau. Spanish Wells is a beautiful, quaint fishing village that is less than two miles long and less than a half mile wide. The preferred method of transportation here is golf cart. While enjoying the view from the harbour the boat will make a quick stop to pick up some local treats. Then we are off to a nearby beach. Here you will try out a few local food and beverage items while you spend time enjoying the amazing beach and it’s views. After enjoying this relaxing beach break, you will head back to the boat and head off to do some snorkeling. There are numerous shoals and even a shipwreck that may be on your agenda for the day. The wind speed and wind direction will determine which area will be best for snorkeling on the day of your tour.
The next stop on your adventure as you start to make your way back to Nassau will be Rose Island to an off-grid beach bar for lunch. All power and water for this property and all other properties on the island are supplied by the property owners themselves. No shoes required here as you walk right off of the beach and into the main door of this open-air island style bar and grill. Enjoy a delicious lunch and a welcome beverage while you take in the absolutely gorgeous views. After lunch you will have a quick ride over to your last stop which is Green Cay where you snorkel with wild green turtles. The turtles love the grassy bottom here and are quite the sight to see in their natural habitat.
