One of the most unique tours you can experience in The Bahamas is a boat trip to what’s become known as Pig Island. This daylong excursion includes a speedboat ride through the turquoise waters of Nassau Paradise Island, a Bahamian lunch, and a chance to interact up close and personal with the famous Bahamas swimming pigs. So many of our guests have gone on this once-in-a-lifetime excursion and documented every moment! Here are some of our favorite “piggie pics” taken by visitors like you!


The pigs of “Pig Island” are inquisitive and outgoing. They often come to say hello as soon as you disembark.
