Swim in the crystal-clear waters off Grand Bahama with a passel of cute, friendly pigs and then spend time shopping at the largest open-air marketplace in the Bahamas.

After departing from the pier, you will enjoy a scenic drive along the western tip of Grand Bahama Island. Along the way to Deadman’s Reef at Crystal Beach, you will hear about the wild pigs that inhabit this part of the island. It’s not known exactly why or when pigs were introduced to Grand Bahama, but it will become obvious that their descendants have thrived.

Once you wade into the shallow waters, you can expect the pigs to follow, knowing that food awaits. The guide will show you how to feed the pigs and the best ways to interact with them while swimming. The pigs couldn’t be friendlier, cuter or more enthusiastic about the attention. You might even learn their names, as many of the pigs are regulars.

Following this unusual experience, you will enjoy free time in Port Lucaya Marketplace, the largest open-air shopping and dining venue in the Bahamas. The marketplace has dozens of duty-free shops, two straw markets, two craft centers and a variety of restaurants.

You might shop for exquisite jewelry, designer fashions and fine leather goods. There are several art galleries well worth browsing for local paintings and watercolors. The marketplace also offers all sorts of dining options and cuisines.

Need to Know:
