Enjoy a Private Exuma Boat Tour
Get ready for a day of swimming pigs, friendly sharks, and gorgeous ocean views! We’ll start the day off by picking you up from Staniel Cay Yacht Club or Staniel Cay Airport (let us know if you want help booking flights!). From there we’ll head to your boat, which can be 17ft, 23ft, or 27ft depending on your preference and number of passengers.
Once your charter adventure starts, you’re in for an incredible day! We’ll stop at Pig Beach, where you can meet and feed the famous swimming pigs that live there. Compass Cay is another one of our stops, as it is home to friendly sharks that would love for you to pet them.
Snorkeling is another activity you won’t want to miss while you’re in the Bahamas, and we’ve got plenty of that for you on this tour. We’ll provide the gear for you to explore Thunderball Grotto, which was the filming location of the James Bond movie by the same name.
Another of our stops is Guana Cay, home to a myriad of iguanas indigenous to our part of the world. We’ll also head to an ocean sandbar with some of the silkiest white sand in the Caribbean. Finally, we’ll round off our day by transferring you to your final destination, whether that be to a local restaurant for lunch, to Staniel Cay Yacht Club, or to Staniel Cay Airport.
If this sounds like too much to do in one day, not to worry! Since it’s a private tour, you’re welcome to do as many or as few of the activities as you’d like. We also offer the option to make it a full-day charter for an extra $550 per group, which includes feeding and swimming with turtles in Farmer’s Cay, weather permitting.

Swimming with the pigs was an amazing experience! Love that they all are named, especially Crazy Daisy. Swimming with the nerf sharks was absolutely thrilling! The late lunch at the Yacht Club was the icing on the trip! Read more
This tour was wonderful, and worth the price, as there was a much lesser risk of cancellation and it was a private boat tour for my friend and I. Captain Dave was our guide and made the experience so much better with his local knowledge and genuine respect for the animals. I loved every minute of this trip. Read more
