(Video) Swimming with the Piggies

Swimming with the dolphins? That’s so last season!

All the cool kids (Johnny Depp and Nicholas Cage included) have taken to the seas with a different kind of swimming companion.

Frolicking on the beaches, soaking up the sun in the sand and splashing through the surf, a family of pigs have laid claim to the pristine waters of the Exuma Cays – an island chain paradise in The Bahamas.

Nobody really knows how and when the pigs got there, but if taking a dip with these four-legged swimmers sounds like fun, there are plenty of ways for you to join in.

Travellers staying at Royal Plantation Island, at Fowl Cay can take a boat out to Big Major Cay and head to the southernmost beach – Pig Beach.

Visitors can organise excursions with Staniel Cay Area Boat Tours, Four C Adventures, and Exuma Cay Adventures.
