We booked this tour through Sandals and had a great afternoon. The father and son took about thirty of us out in two boats and showed us dozens of the cays. We were in the son, Jason's boat and were entertained by his stories of his time around Exuma and famous people who have places in the area. We stopped... More

Great excursion! This is a very popular excursion. I recommend booking this trip online before you go. The trip covered a lot in the 4 hours. The captains were extremely informative and friendly. This is a must do during your stay in Exuma.

I went a week ago on the 4 hour tour that included the swimming pigs ,iguanas, and some general sightseeing. I would have preferred an all day tour because this was the first time there for everyone in our party and in the event I never go back I wanted to do as much as possible.

First I must say how loyal they are to their guests!!! We left an item on the boat and didn't realize it for hours. When I went to the front desk to see if they could call the business to ask about it the front desk clerk said they already dropped it off. THAT IS SOME SERIOUS SERVICE!!! It was... More

My husband and I took the Moriah Sea Park Adventure in Exuma with Captain Steve who was wonderful! His family has been living in the Bahamas for six generations and he was extremely knowledgeable of the area. He first took us on a tour of the harbor and pointed out turtles and different marine life. He noticed a turtle that... More

Let me start this review by stating we had booked our Exumas trip nine months prior & were anxiously awaiting swimming with the pigs! When we booked this excursion we specifically asked if snorkeling was involved and the reply was "yes"; well there was no snorkeling at all! That aside we still had a great adventure! It was a short... More

We started our adventure with a visit to the swimming pigs (and some friendly rays, too!). We hit a beach for some swimming and relaxing. We toured the small islands, enjoying the spectacular colour of the water! We also stopped to see the iguanas - who happily greeted us waiting for their grape treats! Overall we had a great morning... More
