Does your vacation dreams include taking a ‘Swine Dive’? Well, consider your dream come true! Read below to learn about swimming with the pigs!
How did these Mermaid Pigs get here though?
Europeans had brought over pigs to Big Major Cay, Bahamas. Which is now the official home to these famous swimming pigs. The pigs 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 in the pig family. They have 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! 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.
