Let me start this review by stating we had booked our Exumas trip nine months prior & were anxiously awaiting swimming with the pigs! When we booked this excursion we specifically asked if snorkeling was involved and the reply was "yes"; well there was no snorkeling at all! That aside we still had a great adventure!

We had a great day swimming with the pigs, feeding Iguanas and touring some scenic spots in the Exumas. We did the 4 hour trip and had a ball. Our guides made it easy to have fun and they took us to a few real scenic spots on Boise and Williams keys. FYI, They had water, soda and beer for... More

We started our adventure with a visit to the swimming pigs (and some friendly rays, too!). We hit a beach for some swimming and relaxing. We toured the small islands, enjoying the spectacular colour of the water! We also stopped to see the iguanas - who happily greeted us waiting for their grape treats! Overall we had a great morning... More

My husband and I did this 4 hour trip last Thursday morning and we both found it to be fantastic. Justin is top notch, the boat is large enough to be very comfortable for the 16 people on our trip. The first stop was the pigs, they are bigger than I thought they would be but very friendly. They mainly... More

Beware when booking with Island Routes! The tour was good but god forbid you have to cancel. My wife and I were supposed to honeymoon in the Bahamas but due to hurricane Matthew our trip to sandals got cancelled and switched to St. Lucia.

We booked the Ocean Safari at Sandals and it was the highlight of our holiday. The captain was entertaining and although others loved the pigs and iguanas or the snorkelling stop my favourite stop was where we stopped in calm waters to swim and watch the blowhole.

The swimming pigs were cool. But the rest of the trip was incredible. We visited 6 or 7 little cays with private beaches and the calmest, bluest waters I've ever seen. Worth every penny. Wish I went twice.
