Wonderful experience! When booking, be aware that many trips are cancelled, owing to weather conditions (mainly wind) for boat trips. Our trip was cancelled twice. We then booked independently, and flew in with Flamingo Airlines. They had very old, tiny planes, but did the job and it was only a 25 minute flight (as opposed to 90 - 120 minutes by boat). The best time to go is in the morning, as it is quieter and a more personal experience. The afternoons bring boat trips and many tourists. The pigs are friendly and very quick to swim out to the boats for snacks. This experience really is a must!

This is more hype than amazing. But there is not a whole lot in Staniel Cay so go. Bring food. Get some carrots at the store. Watch out for the larger pigs as they can bite.

If you've never seen pigs before or have kids this could be really exciting but otherwise it was only ok. You can feed the pigs fruits/veggies/bread but be careful because they can get a little excited about the food. We went without a guide and had no issues. The beach itself is gorgeous but I would not go to the exumas just for this but if you're in the area, is a cute stop.

We came to great Exuma largely because of the swimming pigs. We really enjoy snorkeling, and thought we would be able to find reasonable snorkeling on this vacation. We were mistaken. As for the pigs, they were interesting, but were really more "pigs hanging out on a beach" than they were swimming pigs. Yes, we did see some swim, but for the most part we interacted with the pigs on the beach. Perhaps the reason for that was that our tour arrived in the early afternoon, and the pigs may have been more likely to swim earlier in the day. Certainly if you are coming to the area, see the swimming pigs. Just don't plan your entire trip around them.

Hard to wrap my head around how two guys (staff)can spend full days on a beach, look at all the garbage and do nothing...! A shame, and that’s not saying it as I would like. Hit No Name Cay in the Abacos, infinitely better.
