Imagine a holiday in the Bahamas – on a tropical island like Staniel Cay – on any number of Exuma tours where the turquoise water fills all expectations. Where palm trees are the only obstacle blocking your view of a picturesque white sandy beach. You’ve probably seen this kind of scene in movies, but never in real life, not before reaching the paradisiacal islands of the Bahamas.
Exuma Tours from Nassau Highlights
Here is a list of things you can do on your Exuma tours:
Take an Exuma pigs tour
These Bahamas swimming pigs are the most popular attraction in the Bahamas and are more exciting than anything you could wish for. However, most tour operators that take you to the Bahamas pigs will take you to a replica instead of going swimming with the pigs of the original Pig Island Bahamas.
The Exuma pigs tour will take you to Big Major Cay, where Exuma pigs will brighten up your day and give you an unforgettable Bahamian adventure. It is estimated 25 swimming pigs Exuma live on Exuma Pig Beach. You must take a chance on an Exuma pig tour from Nassau.
Track down endangered iguanas
The three species of Bahamian iguanas and their seven subspecies are one of the main attractions of the Exuma Cays on any of the Exuma tours. It is one of the few places in Exumas where you can still see the iguanas. The Bahamian rock iguanas are one of our top Exuma excursions to recommend.
Channel your inner James Bond 007
On your Pig Island tour, you must swim across the bay to one of the most famous destinations in the Bahamas, the Thunderball Cave, is just a few minutes’ boat ride from Staniel Cay. If you’ve never seen a photo of this place on Instagram before, you must have lived under a rock in the age of social networks.
Dare to jump in the water with sharks
Not far from Staniel Cay, you can swim underwater with reef sharks and nurse sharks during your excursions to Exuma. Every day dozens of divers dive into the turquoise waters of Compass Cay and dare to experience the sensation. These sharks should be visited on any day trips from Nassau to Exuma.

Find hidden sand bars
Many people think that near Staniel Cay is not the right place for large sand bars. In fact, most people go to the Grande Exuma to relax on the sand bar. But there are also beautiful sand bars just a few kilometers from Staniel Cay and Exuma Pig Beach, which are accessible by boat on your Exuma tours from Nassau. To name but a few: Sandy Cay and Twin Cays are really close by. Continue to Scrub Cays to have a sand bar all for yourself. And not to mention our favorite: Pipe Creek Sand Bar.
Explore the underwater cartel plane
The infamous underwater plane wreck, plane was used for drug trafficking in the 1970s and had to evacuate to escape the authorities. It is one of the most accessible underwater plane wrecks on the planet. Many people have been training for years to dive into an underwater oasis like this. However, it is less than 6 meters deep and you can access this one on your first go.
The remains of the plane are located near Staniel Cay, which is perhaps the most popular place to leave to it from.
Mingle with locals at Staniel Cay Yacht Club
The Staniel Cay Yacht Club is the ideal place to book all your Exuma tours and day trips to Staniel Cay, such as the reef shark or Swimming Pigs Island. Not to mention that it is a great place to escape from the burning sun and enjoy a delicious drink! It is one of our favorite and simple Exuma excursions stopping points.
