Pigs, Sharks and Iguanas
There's only one destination where you can swim with pigs, sharks and see wild Iguanas. The Exuma Cays are a chain of 365 islands that holds the most beautiful white-sand beaches and it's impossible to see them all. Going on a day trip with the Four C's made this possible. Cruising along the sapphire-blue water, we saw private homes of the rich and famous such as Tim McGraw, David Copperfield, then on our next point and to our amusement, swimming pigs!!! It's hard to believe that pigs can swim until you actually see them with your own eyes. Floating and swimming around in the water, you hear a resounding "oink oink", they'll also freely and fearlessly approach you for food. Funniest, best and cutest encounter ever. The tour then docks at the Staniel Cay Yacht Club, where you get the opportunity to swim with a group of nurse sharks. This is only for the brave and not for the fainthearted. Entering the water full of sharks isn't something everyone will be comfortable with. Though, you'd be surprised on how quickly you realize how harmless they are. They sure have thick skin! Concluding the tour was docking at an island with wild Iguanas- a chance to feed and interact with them. Rare wildlife encounters and venturing the dreamy, tropical Exuma islands are what this tour is all about. You may also see dolphins, stingrays and turtles around, but this is certainly top of the list and the best of The Bahamas.
