Ching’s 40th Birthday Adventure

Posted on December 7, 2017 by under Travel.    

Brian, Jay, Becca and I went on an ocean safari adventure with Island Routes on the day of my actual 40th birthday. The excursion left from the Emerald Bay Marina, about five minutes from our resort, which was super convenient. It meant more time adventuring on the boat and less time on the bus.

Our adventure included swimming with pigs and feeding iguanas. We also got to see several beautiful islands, some privately owned and some uninhabited. We got to see a huge osprey nest that has survived multiple hurricanes and hike up one of the islands and enjoy magnificent 360 views of the Exuma cays. We got to see the Atlantic Ocean on one side and the Caribbean Sea on the other. It was breathtaking. The only thing we didn’t get to do was snorkeling because a recent storm came through and kicked up the bottom of the ocean making it murky and hard to see.

Here are some pictures from our amazing adventure but, before that, here’s a selfie.

Jay and Becca opted to skip the hiking portion of our the adventure and stayed by the boat. I think they missed out.

I think this was either before or after our hike.

We also went to an island inhabited by iguanas.

And then there were the swimming pigs.

They were quite aggressive about getting fed chicken hotdogs.

One almost hopped aboard the boat!

Here’s some more information about the famous swimming pigs.

And a few more pictures from our excursion.
