Highlights
  • See more of the Bahamas in less time—several 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.

We had the best time on this trip! The crew were super friendly and gave us lots of insights into the different islands. We had a lovely traditional Bahamian meal at a local restaurant on one of the islands. We would really recommend this trip to anyone visiting Nassau - the iguanas, nurse sharks and pigs are unmissable!!

The day was loads of fun. Shay, Randy and Capt Cameo were very friendly and accommodating. The experience with the iguanas, sharks and pigs were amazing. They put on a great spread for lunch and provided drinks and snacks while boating. All-in-all a great day of unique experiences.

What a day, iguanas, sharks, pigs oh my! Captain Cameo with first mate Randy took care of everything we needed. Whole week worth in one day, really experienced what the Bahamian islands had to offer. Even a delicious lunch with assorted drinks available at our secluded stops. Be a fool not to book this on trip to Nassau.

The islands are gorgeous and the ship crew is really helpful and kind. The stops with wildlife are great as you feed iguanas with berries, swim with nurse sharks, and then swim with pigs and hold the young ones. Then a bit of a nap or swim on a empty pristine beach. The waters are insanely clear teal, although when we went a bit cold to swim. It’s great overall, but keep in mind it’s a lot of boating, a good hour+ both ways in high speed boat winds and they fill the boat up full.
Overall, Nassau isn’t so much about the town as it is it’s beaches and excursions. I’d highly recommend getting to the Exumas one way or another and the crew here is really nice.

We went on this tour Christmas day with 2 teens and my parents. It was a totally fun and action packed day! I can’t decide what I liked best really, the iguanas the sharks and the pigs were just all totally awesome. The Exumas are so untouched and beautiful, the water is many shades of stunning clear blue, no wonder all these crazy rich people have private islands there! The ride is a thrill on its own but not for people who get seasick. Our captain and guide were Randy and Cameo and I have to thank them specifically because they totally went above and beyond to get us back to our cruise ship on time! I highly recommend this company and tour if you want fun, action and exceptionally beautiful scenery.

The Exuma Escapes tour was the highlight of my solo vacation! I traveled to the Bahamas by myself and had a blast feeding the iguanas, swimming with the sharks, hanging out with the piglets, and meeting other travelers on the tour. Cameio and Randy were extremely accommodating and helpful throughout the tour. They explained and shared stories about the different islands we would pass by on the boat. They helped every one get on and off the boat safely. They also got some great pictures for me at the beach and with the pigs. The boat ride is a bit choppy but you eventually get used to it. The bean bag chairs are the best seats! It takes about 45 minutes - 1 hour between the stops but this full day excursion is totally worth every penny. You'll get many beautiful pictures and lifelong memories on this tour.

They provided drinks and snacks on the boat before lunch time. Lunch is the 4th stop after Pig Beach which was around 1PM. It was buffet style and the cookies were baked fresh. Yummy!

You'll be in the sun all day so make sure you bring sunscreen and reapply accordingly. Many people were sunburnt by the end of the day.

I am forever grateful for the opportunity to join this tour and meet Cameio and Randy. They went above and beyond to make this the best tour I've ever experienced.

Great day excursion and tour to Exuma. The Exuma Escapes team was super friendly and made for a great day. The powerboat is very smooth and makes for a great way to see the beautiful waters and islands on the trip. It’s a packed day with 5 different stops so it’s more of see more things with less time vs. more time at fewer places. The stop to swim with nurse sharks was our absolute favorite, followed by the private island and seeing the swimming pigs. Personally, I’d recommend the team remove the iguana and shipwreck stop from the day to allow for more time at the other stops. Overall, great day and would highly recommend!!! 5 STARS!
