FULL TOUR DESCRIPTION
Want to swim with the pigs but don't want an eight hour tour? This tour is your answer! The swimming pigs at Rose Island are only 30 minutes away which leaves lots of time to add on some snorkeling, sightseeing and lunch.
Depart Paradise Island on one of our beautiful speed boats and set off for a four hour tour! First sight to see is Sandy Cay also known as Gilligan's Island. A photo of this island was used for the famous opening shot of the original Gilligan's Island television series in the 1960's. You will then head over to a beautiful coral reef for a snorkel. Here you will see many species of fish and coral of many colors. Masks and snorkels are provided on board.
A short ride away is the beach where you will have the opportunity to swim with, feed, and take photos of the pigs that call this spot home. There will be guides instructing you on your interaction with the pigs and providing you with snacks to feed them.
After all of this activity we know the kids are hungry and the parents are looking for a tropical drink and a beach chair. Well we have just that at our next stop! Enjoy a local beach bar where a delicious lunch and welcome beverage is provided for you. Use the time at this stop for building sandcastles, sun bathing, or enjoying the blue Bahamian water with a cold beverage from the bar.
Before heading back to Paradise Island we have a few more sights up our sleeve. Head over to Green Cay to spot wild sea turtles from the boat. The sea turtles love the grassy bottom at this location and are usually not shy to stick their head above water near the boat to say hello. Now the boat is back up to speed to take you back over toward Paradise Island. Enter the harbour from the west to get an up-close view of the massive cruise ships and the beauty of the Nassau harbour before returning to our meeting location.
*Order of itinerary is subject to change and is left to the discretion of the Captain.
The boat that is used most often for this tour is our 39 foot Venture named 'Wasabi'.
Custom seating allows for a comfortable ride for up to 20 guests. The majority of the rows seat four guests per row.
Wasabi is also outfitted with a spacious bathroom within the console.
Embarking and disembarking for all beach and snorkel stops on the tour is done at the bow of the boat by using a heavy duty ladder.
