The Mermaid Pigs of the Bahamas
Does your dream vacation include taking a ‘Swine Dive’? There’s an island in the Bahamas where you can swim with the pigs of Big Major Cay, Bahamas. Now the official home to these world famous swimming pigs. These feral pigs are outstanding swimmers and swim with all the tourists that come to visit just to see and swim with the pigs. They first started to swim for the purpose of finding food, out running/swimming danger, or to move habitat sights. Soon, with all the tourists coming around, the swimming pigs got more comfortable with the people, boats, loud noises and they loved the food that the tourists brought. One of the most renowned beaches there is Pig Beach, you can go swimming with the pigs, snorkeling with tropical fish and sea turtles, as well as scuba diving with sharks and eels.
Pigs, Pigs and More Pigs, OH MY!
There are approximately 20 pigs on this island, they’ve been described as ‘adorable’ by all tourists and locals that come to visit them, they have become incredibly popular. They live freely on the sandy beaches, and after basking in the sun for hours on end and just like us, they swim in the surf. What a life! The pigs, though feral, are very friendly, running from under the shade of trees to greet the tourists that bring them treats. They are also fed by the crews of passing yachts and boats.
Visiting these swimming pigs is a great experience you don’t want to miss out on! Visitors may book their visits to Big Major Cay for their opportunities to swim with the pigs through a variety of excursion vendors on The Islands. Providing visitors with this once-in-a-lifetime experience of interacting with these wonderful animals is just one more thing that distinguishes The Bahamas.
