A Day Trip with Robert's Island Adventures

Want a day trip on a boat, full of adventure, great scenery, pristine blue waters, including the famous swimming pigs?  Then give Roberts Island Adventures a call and they will make it a reality.

Robert Thompson, born and bred in Exuma has spent his life with boats and the Ocean. Now the proud owner of Roberts Island Adventures, he has a fleet of power boats including a 38 foot Rabco that takes crew and four guests, and a 35 foot Avanti that takes up to 6 guests and crew. All boats are regularly maintained and have all necessary safety gear.

Robert and his son William are the skippers and they are just itching to take you and your friends on either a full day or half day trip of a lifetime. Whether your interest in going snorkeling, spear fishing or fishing, the boys know where to go to get the best results. They know where the turtles can be found, they know where the lobsters are hiding, so you can be sure of getting those pictures you crave or that fish dish you were planning.

Their all day trip starts by wending your way through the smaller cays, passing by the islands of the stars, David Copperfield, Faith Hill, Tim McGraw, Tiger Woods, they all have homes on a Cay (an island). The order of the stops will vary with the tide but you will stop at Leaf Cay and go ashore to see the iguanas, unique to the Bahamas. Feed them some grapes, pose for the photo op and off we go.  Next stop may be at Big Major Cay where you will be greeted by the sight of pigs of various sizes swimming out to the boat, looking to be fed. Be warned, these are wild animals and they do not like their backs scratched as they get sunburn.  After a fun time and more pictures its "all aboard" and off to swim with the sharks! No panic, their nurse sharks, large and intimidating but basically harmless. The last part of the trip is to Thunderball Cave close to the island of Staniel Cay. This picturesque location was in one of the first James Bond films, and it truely is spectacular. More fish of all varieties and the hole in the roof provides beams of light which reflect down into the water.
Now its time to digest the exciting places you have visited as the boat makes its way back to Exuma.

Robert's adventures come with a knowledgable and smiling crew and a cooler of cold beverages. So indulge yourself, and let Roberts Island adventures provide you the trip of a lifetime. To book go to his website
