Praise for the Swimming Pigs of Exuma

“The Bahamas are famous for sun, sand—and swimming pigs.” —
National Geographic

“If you make it down to The Exumas, a trip to Pig Island is a must. It had been on my bucket list for a very long time, and it was even better than I could have imagined.” —
The Londoner

“As your boat approaches Big Major Cay, you’re awoken from this daydream by some rather boorish inhabitants: loud, snorting pigs paddling out to greet you like a jolly bunch of golden retrievers rushing to the door when their owner finally gets home from a long day of work.” —
Travel & Leisure

"The Bahamas, an alluring chain of islands surrounded by luminous turquoise waters, is an ideal place to bask in the bright Caribbean sun or snorkel with rainbows of fish. Turns out it’s also the best place in the world to hit the sands with some rather unusual local beach bums: swimming pigs." —Lonely Planet's
Marvels of the Modern World

"People want this semi-wild, unpredictable pig experience and can become unbelievably and uproariously happy, despite the fact that they probably ate bacon and eggs for breakfast." —
New York Times Magazine

"The pigs are now celebrities, from fans posting on Instagram, visits from celebrities ranging from Donald Trump Jr. to Bella Hadid, and an appearance on ABC's
The Bachelor." —CNBC

"They don't fly, but swimming pigs are quite famous. From posting with celebs like Amy Schumer, to appearing on the bachelor and the
Angry Birds trailer, and they are even featured in a documentary. " —NBC's Today Show

"Everyone from Amy Schumer to Jennifer Lawrence and Johnny Depp have visited the remote island in the Exumas, where the now Insta-famous pigs spend their days swimming in the clear, warm Caribbean sea and waiting for their celebrity fans to visit. Their fame even means they've graduated from social media to music videos—appearing in Pitbull's video for 'Timber'—so basically: we give it a year until these fame-hungry pigs are on Celebrity Big Brother." —

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic book. And fantastic place.
By JST on January 29, 2019
For those of you who have never been to the Exuma Islands in the Bahamas - which is likely most of you - you have no idea what you are missing out on. I have been very fortunate to have been there many times, and it is unlike anywhere else I have ever been in my life. And it is very quick and easy to get to from most of the US and Canada. This book captures the essence of the Exumas perfectly, including its most famous inhabitants these days...the swimming pigs. I strongly recommend the book, and strongly recommend an excursion to the Exuma Islands!
