The Exuma excursions from Nassau of which you will spend your time during your holiday are entirely at your disposal. Especially if you are travelling with a reputable company who specializes in air tours. Most will offer you the possibility to customize your Nassau to Exuma day trip.
Choosing the Best Exuma Excursions from Nassau
We have put together a list of Exuma excursions from Nassau which you will not want to go home without doing or seeing.
1.Go swimming with the Exuma pigs
In case there was any confusion, we really love the Exuma pigs in the Bahamas. Any day trip to Bahamas without a quick stint with these lovable guys is a missed opportunity. Exuma tours from Nassau are worth the price of admission and we think we have offered the best knowledge about the Nassau swimming pigs of any other site on the internet. You can learn how the Nassau swimming pigs got there, why they are still there, and much more. If you want a chance to see the pigs before the daily tourist rush hits the island, you need to book Exuma excursions from Nassau by air!
2. Find the hidden sand bar at Pipe Creek
This is another of the Exuma excursions from Nassau which you can do by plane. If you show up too early, this site will not be near the attraction that it is at low tide. Make sure you check the tide schedules with a local before making your way to Pipe Creek.
When it is exposed, we believe it is one of the most beautiful, picturesque parts of the Bahamas. It is yet another fun thing you can do on your day trips from Nassau to Exuma.
3. Swim with sharks at Compass Cay
These are no newborn sharks. The reef and nurse sharks at Compass Cay can grow to be up to 14 feet in length. That is massive! But don’t worry, you can wade in the water with them and they are completely harmless to humans unless they feel threatened. If you are brave enough, this activity is one of the most adrenaline-pumping things to do in the Bahamas. Take a walk on the daring side and see what adventures it leads you to on your Exuma excursions from Nassau.
4. Spot the endangered iguanas at Bitter Guana Cay
These Northern Bahamian Rock Iguanas are actually an endangered species. Once a thriving population, there are only a mere 5,000 left on this planet — most densely found at Bitter Guana Cay but also scattered across two more islands in the Bahamas (Andros and Great Exuma). It is estimated that these reptiles, with human threats playing a factor in their endangerment, won’t last long. Make sure you make it to Bitter Guana before it is too late. It is one of the best Nassau Bahamas shore excursions.
5. Dive to a sunken Plane Wreck
This is the most accessible underwater plane wreck in the world. What a reward on your Exuma tours! Plus, it used to belong to the Colombian cartel and was used to transport drugs. What a story! But just wait until you hear how it ended up under the sea. It is one of the most exciting Exuma excursions from Nassau.
