Return Details

Returns to original departure point
Arrange for a pick-up or make your way to the Paradise Island Ferry Terminal to catch your boat to Rose Island.

Climb aboard while finding the perfect spot on board to watch the shoreline of Nassau recede as you sail away. 

Upon arrival at Rose Island, choose from an array of activities. Simply find a sunny or shady place on the pristine beach to relax and read a book or take a nap. Sidle up to the beach bar and indulge in a drink or two while listening to some island rhythms (own expense). Don snorkel gear and take to the sea to explore the underwater world bustling with living coral and schools of brilliantly colored tropical fish. Stroll down the island's winding paths and wade in the tidal pools. 

Your guide organizes group activities like beach volleyball and dizzy lizard, or you can rent a float or kayak. Sign up for a guided snorkeling tour or watch a fish-feeding show. All additional activities are at your own expense. 

Sit down for a buffet lunch on the pavilion overlooking the gorgeous harbor. See a sample buffet lunch menu in the Itinerary section. Savor the local flavors, accompanied by complimentary lemonade and a fully stocked cash bar. Then, stretch out in a hammock under a palm tree or lounge on the palm-shaded deck.

At the end of your remote tropical island adventure, enjoy the cruise back to Nassau.

Highlight of Our Trip
, Jan 2022
My husband and I both agreed this was the highlight of our trip to The Bahamas. It was our first time snorkeling and was such a blast. The pigs were darling but the island itself and the time on the beach was worth every penny - it was so beautiful!!
Highly recommend

Best day provided by great staff. You are spoiled with great views, soft sandy beach and practical seclusion from the world.
Great day trip
, Jan 2022
What an amazing trip! This was easily one of the best day trips we’ve ever taken- the beach was beautiful, we had unlimited drinks, there was tubing, snorkeling, kayaking and paddle boarding available and of course swimming with the pigs. Would recommended this trip to anyone going to the Bahamas!
Great crew, amazing experience
, Dec 2021
Swimming with the pigs was a lot of fun and the island is just absolutely beautiful. The water is crystal clear and the crew were fantastic from start to finish. Even the lunch that they give you was fantastic!! It was delicious. The marinade that they use on the chicken they serve is on point!! All around beautiful day, great experience would definitely recommend them to everyone. This is a must do if you are in the Bahamas!
Rose island amazing location and staff
, Dec 2021
Amazing experience , great staff , good food, amazing location . Thank you for such a good experience , the boat ride was great with good views
Fun day for the family
, Dec 2021
Great experience! Only thing preventing 5 stars is the bug bites I came home with! I spent some time on the hammocks at the top of the island and came home covered with bites on my back that are somewhat painful. No one else in our party experienced this, as they were down on the beach the whole time. Strongly advise a towel/blanket and/or bug spray if you venture into the trees. Otherwise, the crew was fantastic, food was good, precautions were appropriate and bartenders very efficient and friendly. The teens in our party had fun snorkeling and racing the pigs.
Highly Recommend!

This excursion was great! The staff is amazing, snorkeling was fun, the pigs were sweet, and lunch was delicious.
A must do .. the crew was amazing !!
, Dec 2021
Every part of the trip was great . The sandy toes crew was amazing . The snorkeling was great , the bar service was perfect and fast , the buffet food and service was excellent . The pig experience was fun . We got a lot of great pictures . Only thing I can say is the pig handlers picked and chose certain people for more personal experiences which wasn’t fair . Unless you asked for a more personal experience you didn’t get it . But overall it was a great excursion and experience . I would highly recommend !!! The grounds were very beautiful as well .
PIGture Perfect Day
, Dec 2021
worth every dollar in my piggy bank (insert wink). Sandy toes was such an amazing experience. From the pristine beaches, yummy buffet lunch and the sweet and gentle pigs - our favourite pig was ginger. The pigs are well trained and cared for on the island. You can tell how much they love their trainers. Highly recommend this excursion - it was a dream come true for me and my bestie. This is the perfect spot for any celebration occasion or just for a good time!
we had a great time!!!
