Swimming Pigs… Cute little farm animal or sinister marine predator? You can decide, but I would hate to be a head of lettuce stranded at sea in the Bahamas. Check out the swimming pigs of Pig Island in Exuma!
There is an island in Exuma that goes by names, but officially is called Big Major Cay. Out of the 350+ islands in the Bahamas, this is the only one inhabited solely by pigs. The story behind the arrival of these strange castaways varies, but they’ve continued their survival by swimming out to passing boats and being fed. On this island, if you wish, you can fufill your lifelong desire of swimming with pigs.
I don’t know how they manage to propel those tubby bodies so fast with legs shaped like pool cues, nor could I resist jumping in the water and enjoying the fun. My partner in crime featured in the video was the awesome travel blogger Will McGough, you’ll see us at the end sprinting across the beach with a bag of lettuce. Also, big ups to TripFilms for sending us. If you’re a travel video blogger, start posting some content there. Enjoy!
