Swim with the pigs: Bahamas

The only permanent residents on uninhabited Big Major Cay in the Bahamas, feral pigs have become the ultimate beach bums, sunning themselves on the sand, then dashing into the blue waters of the Exumas.
It’s not clear how this family of some 20 pigs and piglets came to make their home on a deserted island; legend has it that their ancestors escaped a long-ago shipwreck, but today, they survive by drinking from the three natural springs on the island and eating treats dropped by visitors and sailors on passing boats.
160919111140-snorkeling-bahamas-pig-exlarge-169  Resident pigs on Big Major Cay in the Bahamas regularly take to the water.
Videos of these loveable, friendly porkers have gone viral, and you can now swim with them, getting into the warm, tropical water, strapping on a snorkel to meet them underwater, snout to snout.
Outfitters on the Exumas offer the trip for about $110.

Time for the Doc!

The Exuma Foundation of Canada, in cooperation with the Bahamas Humane Society, is pleased to announce an official veterinarian program for the world famous swimming pigs of Exuma.

Professionals have always visited the pigs when needs arise, but starting in 2016,  representatives from the Bahamas Humane Society will visit the pigs bi-annually to assess their medical needs and administer treatment.
