ShoreTrips says...

Designed just for cruise passengers, this fast boat will deliver you quickly to the small town of Spanish Wells to interact with the friendly little porkers who reside there. Less crowded than Exuma, you will find fewer crowds and more quality "piggie time".

From the minute you board your rigid-hulled inflatable speed boat, the focus is on FUN! Your captain will head, full throttle, out of Nassau toward Spanish Wells, specifically to Meek's Patch. It is here you will find a resident group of friendly, curious swimming swine, ready to greet you with their permanent smiles. They are anxious to be petted and swim with you and will gladly accept your offerings of food.

Although the pigs are the main attraction, after you've had a chance to hang out with them, you might wish to make the short walk to a beautiful beach. You will need shoes to walk over rough terrain to get there, but you will find the beach is well worth the trek. Beach chairs, picnic tables, and hammocks are available for your enjoyment.

Your captain will be sure to get you back on board the boat for the return ride to town in plenty of time to make it to your ship.
