ShoreTrips says...

These friendly little pigs have become quite the rage in the Bahamas. Now you can interact with them on this action-packed day of fun and frolic.

An exciting adventure awaits on our all-inclusive, full-day excursion. A powerboat is the only way to visit Eleuthera's swimming pigs, as it's a bit of a trip to their home. So climb aboard this high-speed, comfortable, custom-built powerboat, hang on to your hat and enjoy the fast, sometimes bumpy ride as you cut through the turquoise waters of the Caribbean. Your friendly captain and crew will provide a tour through the many islands of Eleuthera as you enjoy gorgeous tropical views.

Our first stop is the one you've been anticipating, Meeks Patch, to visit those adorable, entertaining pigs (and maybe some piglets, too). You'll squeal with delight as you swim, feed and take "pigtures" with these playful, personable piggies. You can even pick them up and if you ask nicely, these smart little guys might even smile for you.

The tour moves on to the small town of Spanish Wells. Hop on a golf cart, the perfect touring vehicle to get to know this charming fishing village. We'll head to one of Spanish Wells' beautiful, soft, white-sand beaches to enjoy an authentic Bahamian food tasting including a delectable conch salad, a refreshing Sky Juice, and a Jonnycake or local fresh fruit. From here, we'll head to a local restaurant for delicious lunch.

The rest of your day is devoted to "island time" on Pink Sands Beach, which has been ranked as one of the most beautiful beaches in the world. Its lovely pastel hue is the perfect place to leave your cares behind. Great swimming and loungers (available for rent) make for a relaxing visit.

Your friendly crew will make sure there's plenty of music, beverages, and fun as you make your way back to town.

The recollections of this special day will be "boared" into your memory!
