These friendly little pigs have become quite the rage in the Bahamas. Now you can interact with them AND experience the thrill of snorkeling with sea turtles. How cool is that?

A one-of-a-kind 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 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 of a delectable conch salad, a refreshing Sky Juice, a Johnny cake or local fresh fruit.

Back onboard the powerboat, our experienced captain steers toward the tucked-away island of Meeks Patch to visit those adorable, entertaining pigs. You'll squeal with delight as you swim, feed and take "pigtures" with these precious, playful, personable piggies. You can even pick them up and if you ask nicely, these smart little guys might even smile for you.

We're sure you've worked up an appetite by now, so a delicious lunch at the famous Footprints Bar and Grill awaits. Then, sunbathe or relax on the soft, white sand of their beautiful beach, snorkel the offshore coral reefs, play volleyball or even shoot a game of pool.

After lunch, we'll head over to Green Cay to don your snorkel gear and swim with the sea turtles that frequent this area. These beautiful creatures are familiar with people and will often come quite near, providing an exciting opportunity for an up-close and personal look at these amazing reptiles.

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