1. Swimming with Pigs at Pig Beach
The number #1 top rated activity in the Bahamas, is definitively the famous Bahamas Swimming Pigs. These unique Pigs have become world famous for their sea swimming abilities! Featured in many TV shows including the Bachelor and the Fyre Festival documentaries. Many celebrities including Kim Kardashian have visit the Swimming Pigs Island in recent years.
The Swimming Pigs live on an island called Big Major Cay, which is commonly referred to as Pig Beach or Pig Island.
This is the official home of the Bahamas Swimming pigs. There maybe other islands in the Bahamas that have Swimming Pigs but, Exuma and Big Major Cay is the undisputed origin of the Swimming with Pigs Exuma Cays Adventures!
2. Swim with Sharks at Compass Cay
One of the best Exuma Excursions has to be going Swimming with Sharks. This can be done at Compass Cay Marina, where they have a large collection of pet Nurse Sharks. Nurse Sharks are for the most part harmless to humans.
Just a 20 minute boat ride from Pig Beach, this is one of the major attractions on the standard Exuma Cays Adventures itinerary.
Compass Cay is also home to a stunning crescent beach. The full service marina provides everything except for fuel. It is a popular overnight spot for luxury yachts.
3. Roam with Iguanas at Bitter Guana Cay
On nearby Bitter Guana Cay Island, another one of the main Exuma Cays adventures islands, you can discover the endangered Bahamian Rock Iguanas. These are a specific type of Rock Iguana indigenous to the Exuma Cays. They have a distinctive pink and red color.
The secluded Bitter Guana Cay is an exciting place to stop on most Exuma Tours from Nassau, because of it’s shear tranquillity and beauty. Since its south enough to be off the main tourist track, it actually attract much less visitors than the more popular Pig Beach and Compass Cay islands.
4. Snorkel into the Exumas Plane Wreck
The underwater plane wreck is the remnants of a drug smugglers plane that crashed off the coast of Staniel Cay island. This plane wreck is unique in that it is one of the few ones which is close enough to visit from one of the popular islands and not far from the main Exuma Cays adventures itinerary.
The Exuma plane wreck dates back to the 1970’s when it was on a training mission using large bags of flour to substitute bags of drugs. The aircraft got into difficult when it was coming into Staniel Cay airport.
It is now a popular snorkeling location in the Bahamas.
