The benefit of an exotic Exuma day trip to Bahamas from Fort Lauderdale is its central location gives you plenty of options in terms of what to do on your one day cruise to Bahamas from Fort Lauderdale. Let’s take a look at just a few of those Bahamas day trip activities:
1.Swimming with the Pigs in the Bahamas at Big Major Cay
By far and away, the most popular attraction on a Fort Lauderdale Bahamas day trip are the Exuma pigs at Pig Island Bahamas. Take a Pig Island tour to Pig Beach Bahamas to see what all the hype is about regarding these cute Bahamas pigs and see why they had over six million visitors in 2018!
There is said to be around 25 pigs living on the beach, ranging in size from tiny piglets to the oldest resident on the island, Big Momma. Take a small boat and feed these lovable pigs straight from your fingertips. Pay careful attention to abide by all rules of etiquette to ensure safety for the animal and yourself.
2. Dive into Compass Cay Marina with Reef Sharks
Not to be overlooked, the sharks at Compass Cay are one of the most thrilling adventures to be had on your Fort Lauderdale Bahamas day trip.
Take a dip in shallow waters at Compass Cay Marina with dozens of reef and nurse sharks. These guys can grow to be over 10-feet in length and upwards of 300-pounds. Don’t worry though, they are completely harmless if left unthreatened.
If you are lucky, they will even brush up against you and you will get to feel their slimy, smooth surface. It is a perfect activity for those who want to brave the chance of a lifetime!
3. Do your best James Bond impression at Thunderball Grotto Exuma
Hop on a ferry from Fort Lauderdale to Bahamas and re-enact scenes from one of the world’s favorite secret spies. That’s right, you can do the same stunts as 007 on your Fort Lauderdale to Bahamas day trip.
From the outside, it might not look like much, but inside these hollow walls are an adventure of vibrant colors and lively marine life waiting for you! Make sure you bring a snorkel to make the most of it.
Afterward, take a drink at the Staniel Cay Yacht Club nearby where Sean Connery frequented after film days on the set of “Thunderball” in the Sixties.
4. Spot endangered species of Iguanas at Bitter Guana Cay
What is better on a day trip to Bahamas from Fort Lauderdale than the chance to see something which may not last much longer?
