What to expect of your Pig Beach Bahamas Tour
Pig Beach Tours are some of the most sought after excursions in the world since the rise of social media and viral photos. Nassau to Pig Beach tours have become the Bahamas’ most profitable tourism attraction. Here is a little more information like how to get to Pig Beach Exuma so you are not left in the dark on your Bahamas day trips.
Where is Pig Island Bahamas
The Exuma pigs are located on Big Major Cay on Pig Beach Exuma (also referred to as Pig Beach Nassau). It is just ten minutes from Staniel Cay where you will land if you decide to take an air tour. Upon landing, you will board a water taxi where you will be transported to the Bahamas swimming pigs for the start of your Pig Beach Bahamas tour.
What is included in your Pig Island tour?
Included in the price of whichever Pig Beach Bahamas tour you select whether it be from Miami or Nassau, you will (usually) receive rides to and from the island with pigs, the freedom to come up with your own Pig Beach Bahamas tour schedule, snorkel gear for exploring the fluorescent undersea world, drinks to cool down from the sun, water taxis to and from the islands of your choice, food to feed the pigs in the Bahamas, and lunch at Staniel Cay Yacht Club. This can be expected of the normal Pig Beach Bahamas tour package.
Interaction on the Exuma pigs tour
During your excursions to Pig Beach there are only a few rules to follow. Be nice to the pigs in the Bahamas! Never intentionally hurt or tease them.
Don’t feed them anything you didn’t get from your tour company. Pigs only eat bread, fruit, and vegetables. Anything you feed them can bring them disease or even death, so keep that in mind.
Do not feed pigs by hand. Always throw food in the water near the pigs. They are not delicate animals and your fingers can quickly (accidentally) turn into food if they are fed by hand.
Always feed the pigs on the boat and never on the beach. This is so they can maintain their survival instinct by collecting their own food. It also keeps the beach clean and pleasant for all of us.
Finally, be careful and cautious. These pigs look cute, but they are still half-wild animals that can cause injury. We say this not to scare you, but to warn you. It is more than likely that you do not have to be concerned, but just be aware.
