Beautiful beautiful private island!! Wow. We did some snorkeling and saw lots of various sea life. Beautiful fishes and turtles. It was so beautiful . I won't lie, it was scary walking alone on a private island. Lol but it was so much fun and very scenic. A must visit with a tour when you come to the Bahamas . Enjoy and thank me later

This was one of the funnest days I have ever had! I would absolutely recommend HArbour Safaris and the Exumas trip because I felt like we saw so many things in one day! We had Ron, Darren, and Shay and they were AWESOME - so nice and so much fun!! The boat ride is a freakin' BLAST! The boat goes really fast which makes it a smooth, fun ride. It is very windy! I brought a wind breaker jacket and was very glad. The best part of the ride is that they are constantly telling you what you are seeing - a famous person's island, Fyre Fest island, etc. The water is absolutely unreal and the prettiest I have ever seen. The ride would be a couple of hours, but they break it up with several stops so it doesn't feel long or tedious. But like I said, It's actually a fun ride. The first stop is with the iguanas, which were cute. Then it was another hour or so ride to Pig Beach. The pigs are just as cute as you've seen online- and it's amazing how far they swim out to greet the boats! We also saw stingrays in the clear water- where else will you get a sting ray and a pig in the same photo?! Harbour Safaris gets you there before the crowd really starts, they give you really good advice on how to interact with the pigs to stay safe, though I never felt unsafe. They seemed very professional compared to other boats, but I may be biased! You can have as many carrots as you can feed the pigs in an hour or so and they will have them show you their tricks- they can sit and stand up! It was all very fun and you can also just relax on the beach or in the water. This wasn't even the end of the trip! Next, you get a delicious lunch at a yacht club, which is really nice! The next part was a delightful surprise to me- they feed nurse sharks off the dock and we got to pet and swim with them!! It was so cool, and totally unexpected. Then, we were off to a PRIVATE ISLAND. They had music playing from the boat, gave us cold beers and drinks, and I think being in that water is maybe the most relaxing place I've ever been! It was UNREAL. I collected some shells, explored the water, and swam a bit; others laid out on the beach. It was the most beautiful and relaxing place. After that, we took a stop to Pablo Escobar's plane, which is sunk in shallow, clear water so you could see it and take pictures. From there, we were back to Nassau. The crew was happy to call a taxi for you, but we just took the bus back to Compass Point. It was so much fun and I still can't believe my "#nofilterneeded" pictures!!

A group of my friends and I chartered the World Cat boat for a day. We were a group of 8. We brought our own food and drinks and the crew provided us with a cooler as well as some snacks and local beer. The boat took us to Rose Island, first stopping to let us snorkel and see many fish as well as turtles with snorkel gear provided. From there, we went to the beach where the captain and first mate provided us with beach chairs, umbrellas, and a football. The views were absolutely breath taking and we experienced beautiful weather. Captain Pete and first mate Shay were wonderful, helpful, and interesting company answering all our questions about life in the Bahamas. We highly recommend this activity as its nice to get away from busy Nassau and Rose Island is a great place to explore. Thank you, Harbour Safaris!

This is the second time my husband and I have booked this excursion and it was just as amazing as the first time! Captain Darren and First Mate Shea were awesome tour guides and very generous with snacks and drinks. They detoured a bit to take us to see the sunken WWII plane that once belonged to Pablo Escobar, which was an awesome addition to the day! We loved getting to play with and feed the pigs and after a great lunch, we were able to swim with the nurse sharks. I 100% recommend this to everyone looking to enjoy a day with the famous pigs of the Bahamas!

Would like to say a huge "thank you" to the crew.. Capt. Darren, Gio, Shea and the management team for creating the most memorable and perfect 40th birthday visiting Exuma Swimming Pigs on 28th Jan 2020. We boarded the super safe and exceptional clean speedboat with a crew of 3 that glided at pace through the stunning Cays. Pack a jumper / hoody and at high speed it is windy!! The water is insane, crystal clear. The boat will stop for you to take photos. The crew provided unlimited soft drinks throughout the day and constantly checked that everyone was ok, which made everyone's day very enjoyable. We first stopped at the island with Bahamian Rock Iguanas  then on to Big Major Cay (a.k.a. ‘Pig Beach’)This experience was epic. If you love the idea of swimming pigs then you will have died and gone to heaven. Couldn't stop giggling at them trying to get the Carrots from us, quite the opportunists! Last stop was a local cay where we had a delicious lunch and I was presented with a birthday cake! so thoughtful. The clay was full of Nursing sharks at the harbour point where fish are gutted and sharks fed. We spent a further hour after lunch to enjoy the beach and sharks... the perfect day! Do it, you will not regret it!!!
