Swim with Sharks and Pigs on a Half-Day Tour
Join us for a sightseeing adventure of Exuma. On this half-day excursion, you’ll get to meet the area’s famous wildlife and experience snorkeling in some of the clearest water around. We offer complimentary transfers to and from Staniel Cay Airport or Staniel Cay Yacht Club straight to our charter boat where the tour starts. Our friendly team will meet and greet you at the airport on arrival to make sure you feel welcome to Staniel Cay.
On this half-day trip, we’ll head to Compass Cay where you can swim with the sharks that hang around. They’re pretty accustomed to humans and will even let you pet them! Our adventure also includes snorkeling at Thunderball Grotto, site of Splash and the James Bond movie Thunderball.
Since we promised you wildlife, no day would be complete without a stop at Guana Cay! This is the home of many indigenous iguanas, which you’ll see scurrying all around the island. If this isn’t enough beach for you, not to worry—we’ll also stop at a silky ocean sandbar on this trip.
As the tour’s name suggests, the main feature of this Exuma tour is Pig Island! You’ll be able to meet the swimming pigs that live on Pig Beach and snap some selfies of yourself hanging out with them. We’ll even provide food for you to feed to these local (and international!) celebrities, in case you’re looking to win them over.
To round off the day, we’ll return you to Staniel Cay Airport or Staniel Cay Yacht Club after a day well spent.

The real fun started when Captain Dave picked us up. He was very interpersonal and knowledgeable and made sure we were always having fun. He was amazing interacting with the pigs and shared the history of all the locations we went to. He went out of his way to ensure that our day was remarkable. Read more
