Everything about this tour was excellent; the crew, the boat, the lunch stop and complimentary drinks throughout the day. Fabulous day, would thoroughly recommend!

The tour was great, our captain was very attentive and they did a fantastic job avoiding the rain storms. My only thoughts is having 3 full boats at the shark encounter makes it difficult to enjoy the swim. There are a lot of people and it causes the sand to be disturbed while swimming with sharks. My other suggestion is when feeding the iguanas using the sharp end of the wood stick is likely Injuring the mouth of iguanas. They seemed fearful to take the grapes of the ends and notice many of the tourist would push grape so far onto stick the pointed end would poke the inside of iguanas mouth. I suggest telling the tourist to use the blunt end of the Stick. The iguanas will not take the food if they continue to get poked by sharp sticks. They would eat the grapes if I placed it on rock but not off the stick. It feels like there are a lot of people at each stop with 3 boatfuls. Although the ship crew explained how to behave with pigs with so many people it’s hard to ensure that the tourists are behaving appropriately. The pigs were well behaved but I can see if you continue to allow so many people it will be difficult to ensure the tourists are behaving. I also think it’s important to explain to guests the pigs don’t have intentions of harming they are only interested in the food. Many people would be afraid run or splash the pigs, the tourist should be notified much of the pigs efforts are an attempt to get food and they cannot see well so don’t always understand you don’t have any in your hand. I found if I told them I had no food they would swim or walk away. I would hate for this experienced to be ruined because the pigs become more aggressive as result off inconsistent human experiences.
Tyson and Leslie were fun, attentive, informative and helpful. There were several tour boats at the check in area and Hidden Beaches' definitely looked the best, so glad we chose them over the others. The seating area was shaded and there was a bathroom, important with kids. We took our 5 and 8 year olds on this tour and they loved it (although my husband did get bit by one of the pigs - make sure you listen to the guide's instructions!). All of the stops were great and lunch was very good too. The highlight had to be the sandbar stop. It was a long day for the kiddos towards the end but they napped a little on the ride back to Nassau. I would highly recommend for a fun and unique experience with great staff and service!
The Excursion was Amazing and the crew was Awesome!
Everyone was so much fun and kept us engaged the entire tour. Tyson and his group were awesome and friendly. We loved all of the beautiful scenery and islands we stopped at. Lunch was great and overall the day was perfect. My only suggestion is to let people know to wear swim shoes when visiting pig island as there are a bunch of rocks which were not fun to step on.

Crew was extremely helpful, friendly and entertaining!
Another awesome experience with hidden beaches. The crew were amazing, knowledgeable and friendly. It was another experience we will never forget
Crew was very friendly and courteous and all attractions were great. Captain Leslie and mates Omar and Tyson are a credit to your organization
The crew were helpful and courteous. The boat was fast and a fun ride. All the attractions (swimming pigs, iguanas, nurse sharks, beach) a once in lifetime experience. If there was one activity I would recommend if you come to Nassau is the Hidden Beaches tour. Thank you for an incredible memory for my family!
Great day! Great people! Great fun! Highly recommend!!!
It was a wonderful day! The crew was very friendly and accommodating. The timing of everything was perfect. We enjoyed the boat ride very much with awesome music and drinks! It was our highlight of our trip to The Bahamas and I will recommend this to anyone I know coming to The Bahamas!
Our whole experience start to finish was amazing! Leslie and Tyson were awesome! They made the tour even better! Their energy and knowledge made the tour what it was. We would highly recommend this experience. Totally worth the money!
Such a great day! Leslie, Steve and Tyson made this such an amazing and memorable trip:-). Loved everything about it!
Ein Tag voller ungewöhnlicher Erlebnisse. Freundliches hilfsbereites Personal. Neuwertige Boote. Die Überfahrt von Nassau (Paradise Island) zu den Exumas ist ein wenig strapaziös (windig und laut) aber auch ein Erlebnis. Wir würden die Tour wieder machen!
The service on the boat was great. Things were well organised
The crew was very nice and informative. Loved the destinations, absolutely beautiful. I will definitely recommend to anyone visiting the Bahamas!
I would recommend this excursion to anyone visiting the Bahamas. It was a fun filled adventure. We were able to see the different islands. All are beautiful! We fed iguanas, swam with sharks and swam with the pigs. All in one adventure. Our boat crew Tyson and Leslie were great. The history and tour of all the islands was informative and interesting. Their energy is amazing. Thank you for a great day.
This was the best part of my visit to the Bahamas. The crew was very friendly, helpful and prepared. They had an amazing playlist, snacks and unlimited drinks available, water, soda, beer, wine coolers. The boat was very comfortable and also had a bathroom on board which was good to have for 8 hours on the water. It was also very clean. They posted us on timing and facts about the islands we visited and those along the way. We did everything on my bucket list, we were able to feed the iguanas, swim with the nurse sharks at compass cay and with the pigs at major cay. Lunch was included, we stopped at staniel cay yacht club. Afterwards we stopped at the beach where pirates of the Caribbean was filmed to wind down before heading back. No one got hurt, and the crew was just incredible. I would go back again and take friends and family. Highly recommended definitely worth the value of the money all things considered.
Hidden Island Tours were great. Our original scheduled day had storms so they rescheduled us for the following day with ease. Captain Leslie and crew Tryson were awesome! We stopped at 4 islands total and each one they clearly identified exactly what to do but also made it extremely fun. I laughed all the way home!!
Our crew on this boat were fabulous. They always made sure we were doing okay and supplied us with many drinks. They were friendly and cared if we were having a good time. Highly recommend using Hidden Beaches as the company to see the pigs!
Absolutely the best bay with Capt Leslie and Tyson. Very helpful, informative and FUN! Each stop along the way was a blast!
The tour guides were awesome and everything about the day was perfect. You will not regret doing this excursion.
Fast and easy check in

Great tour. Yes it's expensive but there's a lot of travelling and that costs money. The experiences can't be replicated and you get to sample 4 different things you just cannot do in England! Really, really cool trip. The Sand Bay/Strip on the last leg is pretty special!
