2 travellers
Visit five islands in one day on this powerboat tour from Nassau, Bahamas—a great choice for first-time visitors and nature lovers. The highlight of this tour is a stop at Pig Beach to swim with the pigs. Also see Bahamian rock iguanas, swim with nurse sharks, and stop at a secluded beach. Round-trip transportation, lunch, and a sightseeing tour of the Exumas from the boat is included.
  • Travel between highlights of the Bahamas with ease aboard a powerboat
  • See more of the Bahamas in less time—five island stops in one day
  • An activity-packed tour ideal for first-time visitors
  • Unobstructed views of the Exuma Cays from a boat at sea
What to Expect
Your morning starts when you meet your guide at the Nassau Paradise Island Ferry Terminal. Board a powerboat and set off for the Exumas, an archipelago of 365 tiny Bahamian islands and cays. After a sightseeing tour of the Exuma Cays from the water, stop at one of the small islands to see the Bahamian rock iguana in its natural habitat and watch a feeding demonstration. Then cruise to Pig Beach on Big Major Cay to see the Bahamas’ swimming pigs and splash around with them in the clear, waist-deep water. Next, stop for lunch (included) and then cruise to Compass Cay to swim with nurse sharks. That leaves just enough time to stop at a hidden beach or swim around a shallow sandbar before heading back to Nassau to end your tour.

If you're looking for a day-long excursion please do yourself a favor and book with Exuma Escapes. Everything about this excursion was interactive and ideal. From feeding the "baby dinosaurs" (lol), swimming with nurse sharks, feeding & splashing with the pigs, enjoying the sand

We had a blast! The bus picked us up at the Baha Mar and provided transportation to the dock where arrived to board our powerboat. There were 36 of us total but you split up into onto two different boats. If you can choose which boat to board, ask to be on Captain Henny and

lot was wrong here. First of all we were told we’d have hotel pick up. We were at the Coral Atlantis which is literally 3 minutes away from the pier. I even called to confirm the night before and they assured us we’d be picked up at 7:45 out front. Waited almost an hour with no

Thank you so much for your review, we as a company take all of our reviews seriously and will use them to continue to improve. We offer an offshore day away experience that consists of 200 nautical miles round trip 5 exotic islands and a buffet lunch. This incurs incredible fuel costs as well as park and meal fees in one of the top 5 most expensive places in the world to live, let alone operate a maritime business. We understand your concerns deeply and would to share a what transpired on the day your participated within our tour. 1. We had a delay with another set of guests at another hotel so we accommodated you with a taxi transfer which we paid for. 2. We have a standard playlist of music that we run for our trips. If someone deviated from that playlist this is something that could have been expressed directly to management in lieu of a review. We will investigate this situation internally and act accordingly. 3. Being the first and oldest company to operate the tour we recognize that the distance from check in to the attractions is so great, rather than outfit the boats with conventional seating to fit more people we opted for the most comfortable approved seating available for this type of tour. We understand that that the sea might have been rough that particular day, however this is not usual occurrence. We try to accommodate as much persons as we can without sacrificing the comfort level of the tour. Therefore our seating arrangements such as our marine bean bag seating are known to be the most comfortable seats on our vessels. Once we thank you for your review and we do apologize for any convenience caused. Thank you for choosing Exuma Escapes Bahamas Ltd. Best regards,
