We spent a week vacationing in New Providence. The one thing our teenage daughter really wanted to do is "swim with the pigs". We chose this company because they are one of the first companies organizing the excursion to Exuma from such a long distance. There are others doing it now as well, but basically copying what this company has been doing for a number of years. Our hotel (the British Colonial Hilton) also highly recommended this company. We were not disappointed and had a very nice time. There is an extensive amount of boat travel, but it is worth it as you make four stops throughout the day. The power boat seats about 20 people and there is both benches and beanbag chairs to chose from. One of the two captains was informative and pointed out sites along the way. There was also music, water/sodas, and chips as we enjoyed the 90-minute trip out to the first site. We spent about 30-minutes feeding the iguanas and checking out Allen Cay. We then had another 60-minute trip to see the pigs. There were only a couple other boats there, so it was not too crowded. They provided great instructions as to what to do and also what not to do...such as turn your back to a large pig! We had a great time feeding both the large adult and small, young pigs. After the pigs, it was a short 15-minute ride to another island for lunch. We ate at a local restaurant where you get a choice of hamburgers, chicken, fish, veggie burger, salads, etc. It was nice to eat at a local establishment. It was a holiday the day we went (Good Friday), so many of the locals were there as well. Everyone was very friendly. After lunch, we went to swim with the sharks. That was a highlight. There were 10-12 nurse sharks swimming amongst us, a couple large sting rays, and various fish. The water is crystal clear. Again...the locals were very welcoming and friendly. After visiting the sharks, we enjoyed the boat trip back to Paradise Island. When you book this trip, know that there is a lot of boat travel and that it can be a bumpy ride initially until you get to shallower waters. But the four stops more than outweigh the time spent traveling. We would definitely do it again!
