I recently visited the Bahamas this past November 2019 with my friend. We booked this tour and could not be more satisfied. Captain Henny and Captain Flowers were very informative. Every sight seeing location was truly breathtaking. The Pig Beach and the Sharks had to be my favorite. We spent a lot of time at each stop and we were able to capture every moment on this tour. We stopped for food and drinks, which was delicious. Shout out to the chef. I definitely recommend this tour to anyone visiting the Bahamas. The water is so clean and clear, you will not be disappointed. This tour exceeded my expectations and would return on my next trip back to the Bahamas. I will post pictures soon.
Expensive but worth to do it, great Tour, see so much, nice guides, good service.. thanks for a great day on the water and the islands
Wow what a trip highly reccomend this small group tour 15 of us on the fast boat to Exuma. Comfy bean bag seating was tops. Had a sleep both ways ha. Our captain and deck hand Tyler was great smiling all day swam with the pigs and sharks rhen private island tour was breathtaking 100% reccommend and easy pick up from Atlantis hotel
This was a brilliant day trip, although I was a little bit apprehensive at first because our first booking was postponed due to the weather. We were offered a flight instead of a boat trip but at an additional cost, this wasn't an option for us. Fortunately, the trip did take place the following day and it was amazing. The boat trip itself, with Captain Cameo, was invigorating - sitting on marine bean bags which were probably the comfiest option on a speed boat going at full speed! We fed iguanas, swam with nursery sharks, fed the swimming pigs which was the best experience ever, and then spent 40 minutes on a remote beach with white sand and clear light blue sea. The lunch, included in the price, was very good considering the numbers they were catering for. All in all - well worth the rather hefty price tag.
It was a great tour aboard a comfortable boat! The tour took more or less 5 hours.
The captain Loxlee and the young Roney did an excellent job. The trip was safe and beautiful, and we could see many small islands and impressive private properties.
We did feed iguanas and pigs, take a bath among sharks and enjoy a beautiful beach in the middle of the sea, with white and clean sand, and transparent water.
To say this was a wonderful trip does not do justice! Our Captain Shawn and First Mate Tyler did an amazing job - We interacted with sharks, pigs and iguanas just as the trip description stated and it was flawless! Amazing experience!!
Crew was very attentive. Much more then I expected. Our daughter celebrated her 8th Birthday doing this and had the best experience for the whole family. They really was very accommodating to everyone's needs on board. The lunch buffet included was very good as well. It was the highlight from the entire trip!
Loved everything about this tour from the first stop to feeding iguanas than to Pig beach and the best part of the trip is swimming with nurse sharks ! The captains of the Boat were so nice and very informative about each stop. I would recommend anyone looking for a once in a life time trip this is it !!
Incredible day! the departure point is close to Atlantis, so very convenient. We hopped into comfy beanbag chairs on deck of a power boat. Going out, it was choppy, and being up front had it's ups and downs. In the back, they were fine. Beanbags up front were better than seat. It's a bit of a ride out to the 1st stop, but the iguanas are amazing, many and hungry. i wasn't sure if I got off the boat if I would be able to get back on no ladder, but it turned out to be possible! although not as gracefully for me as others!. The beach there incredibly beautiful. Then off to the pigs....They get a little mean and nippy if you don't feed them, and there were both HUGE and small piglets. I was worried after hearing the pigs had died last year there wouldn't be very many, but there were plenty to amuse you. At lunch, we saw stingrays and sharks at the boat dock, and had a basic lunch, ferried to in the back of a pickup. By now, we were making friends on the trip, and lunch provided more opportunity to get to know others on the the tour. We then went to swim with sharks...in the wild! Then back to Nassau in time to watch the sunset. Be sure to bring A LOT of suntan lotion and apply liberally, esp after the iguanas as it's another hour in the sun/swimsuit before getting to the pigs. High steps to get on/off boat. Crew very nice and helpful. Wish there was more history, interaction with the crew. They would answer questions, but it felt like their job was just to take you to the stops. I wish they were more part of the tour than just driver and crew member.
