8 hr return trip to the Exuma Islands of The Bahamas. WOW what an experience. This is a fast speed boat ride 80 miles south of Nassau so be prepared as it is high pace but is absolutely worth it. Feeding the Iguanas, swimming with the baby sharks and then swimming with the pigs. Just unbelievable Tyson and his crew were brilliant and lunch was great at Staniel Cay Yacht Club. Highly recommended. Highly recommend
This was an amazing trip we had great fun weather fab and our guides Tyson and Leslie were tops I would highly recommend it.
Fantastic excursion with Hidden Beaches! The entire day was well planned and very organized. Would highly recommend this full day excursion! Staff was very nice and knowledgable and did an amazing job navigating around the storm that was in the area during our trip.
My daughter and I had a blast on this excursion. Everything went smoothly from beginning to end. The animals were friendly and the water was beautiful. The tour guides were very helpful. Highly recommended
This tour with Leslie, Omar, and Tyson looking after us, made our trip to the Bahamas. I cannot speakly highly enough of how they looked after us from beginning to end. It was a full day tour including feeding iguanas (fantastic!) on one of the islands in the Exuma Cays, followed by swimming with nurse sharks which was scary to start with but we now love them after that experience. We then were taken to swim with the pigs and feed them. OMG!!!! This is a once in a life time experience, and was unbelievable fun. The pigs ranged from enormous to piglets, which were just beautiful. Our crew looked out for us and kept us entertained every step of the way. After a wonderful lunch, we had the chance to swim off a sandbar that was featured in Pirates of the Caribbean, which the most crystal clear water i have ever seen anywhere in the world. During the trip, Leslie, Omar and Tyson also pointed out famous people's islands, including Louis Vuitton, and Johnny Depp. I woukd like to add that the Bahamian people are the friendliest in the world by far, and Leslie and the crew epitomised that sentiment. We had the most fantastic day, and i would recommend the hidden beaches company to everyone. They ensured that every person on the tour went home with the biggest smiles on their faces. Thank you all so much.
Although the main focus of this excursion was the famous swimming pigs, feeding the iguanas and swimming with the nurse sharks definitely did not get enough hype as they deserved before hand. There were a lot of people on the trip between all of the different boats that went but it was a very personal experience and all of the animals interacted with everyone. The boat rides were fairly long but there was a bathroom on board and was such a fun experience. Our captains/guides names were Leslie and Tyson and they were absolutely amazing. It was clear that they genuinely cared about making sure their passengers were safe and enjoying themselves. This was truly one of the most amazing experiences i’ve ever had and I would absolutely do it again. The cost of this trip raised some skepticism at first but I can now say that it was 100% worth every penny. One thing that isn’t really brought up much before hand is that it is not uncommon at all for the pigs to bite. I would say probably about 7 people including myself on the trip got bitten, and not for harassing them or anything like that, but simply just for not feeding them or being strangers in their territory would be my guess. Overall, I am extremely grateful that I got to attend this trip and see first hand the natural wild life of the Bahamas and it is definitely something I will remember forever.
