  • We were worried about getting to spend time with the pigs after a tourist killed some of them by giving them alcohol. It was unfounded because there were lots of amazing pigs!! Babies and toddlers, ye...  more »
  • We decided to make the trip after thinking a lot about it and looking for different prices. We finally got a $50 discount in a little β€œoffice” in the port since all hotels gave us the same price:$400....  more »
  • They didn't look very healthy. Some were quite aggressive and one was near death. There was no vet on site and no one raking care of the small piglet on deaths door. The beach was full of pig screams ...  more »

  • Lovely place with waters in the most beautiful colours of blue you've ever seen..! And pigs..? The cutest ever..!
  • Yes, if you make the effort to get here, there really are pigs who will swim out to greet your boat in the hope of getting fed. It's just like in the pictures except they are bigger and cuter in real life.
  • Located just to the north of Staniel Cay in the northern Exumas. Lots of hungry pigs 🐷 that like to be fed. Basically two ways to get here via numerous boat services that depart from Nassau (which is an extremely long ride) or airplane ✈️ either flying directly to Staniel Cay via Watermaker Air from Fort Lauderdale Executive Airport. Or from Nassau, Bahamas πŸ‡§πŸ‡Έ via Trans Island Airways. Trans Island Airways has a Cessna Seaplane that will bring you direct to the pigs 🐽 πŸ–
  • It's awesome, but some tourists should be more respectful... The pigs are animals, not toys you can carry into the water just to take a selfie.
  • The water is so clear you can see turtles, rays, puffer fish, sharks and yes pigs! Without even having to get in!
