Swim with pigs
Exuma's famous swimming pigs live the high-life on their own private island just north of Staniel Cay where visitors come to feed them in exchange for some of the most memorable vacation photos available. A day trip to the swimming pigs is an incredible experience as you navigate your way around sand bars and private islands of the rich and famous surrounded by the most pristine water imaginable. There are also shorter half-day trips to White Bay Cay.
The Bahamas' blue holes are geologically unique from other blue holes in the entire world, due to their tidal nature. These underwater caves appear a deep blue when viewed above as the sides of the holes drop down deep in contrast to their surrounding light blue waters and make for a unique diving experience. Dean's blue hole is in Long Island, a half day boating excursion, that is very worthwhile.
Visiting the Bahamian Rock Iguana's feels like a trip back to pre-historic times with a fun twist. These Jurrasic looking but generally friendly, endangered species are delighted to welcome respectful visitors bearing gifts of food during a stop at a number of southern Exuma cays where their populations still abound.
One of the oldest industries in The Bahamas, straw markets allow you to shop for the perfect hand-made souvenir. Stroll through the market to choose from hats, baskets, bags and any number of other items created by craftswomen of the trade. Don't be afraid to ask for them to create something custom and unique just for you!
