We went on the Ocean Safari tour offered through Sandal’s. During the swimming with the pigs portion of the tour, I was unfortunately bitten on the finger. I was walking through the water by the boat when the pig came from behind and bit me hard enough to draw blood. The pigs are fed hot dogs, but my hands were... More

We were absolutely blown away by Exuma's beauty. This place is a hidden gem. The ocean safari brought you by boat to some of the most beautiful water I have ever seen. Literally every shade of blue was visible. The Bahamas is know for their shallow water and visibility. Normally you can see 50' down but in Exuma you literally... More

This was a fantastic four-hour tour of the Cays. Justin was a terrific captain and host, and his sidekick (name?) was always making sure everyone was comfortable. We saw so many sights and we were able to stop often to get out of the boat. Attractions included swimming with the pigs, visiting the Bahamian rock iguanas, million dollar islands, snorkeling,...

We booked a light tackle fishing trip through our resort and ended up in a small boat with our Captain, Rudy. He put us right on top of fish throughout the morning and we caught probably 30+ small snapper and grouper. It was fun! They fought hard and we had bites almost every cast. It was a good time!

The people were helpful on helping us figure out where to go and what to do but were always full with there daily activities. The Hotel was not full at all so don't understand what could have happened but they were a good help.

Highly recommend the 007 tour, whether 1/2 day of full day you will not be disappointed. Tremendous value, most importantly a lot of fun, knowledgeable and hospitable guides, great way to see life on the cays first hand. Don't miss this tour!

We loved going with Ray on our ocean safari. We enjoyed the 007 boat ride and stopping along all the cays was truly a highlight of our whole trip to the Bahamas. We fed the pigs and fed the iguanas. I had to keep asking my husband if the water was real and if we were just dreaming. Exuma is... More

This was the first excursion we have done through Island Tours at Sandals. We were picked up late and returned early. We didn't say anything because the trip was not what we were expecting and we were glad to return to the resort. First.. Olie did not take us out, it was his cousin Kelvin, and I don't think he...
