Staniel Cay trip with Tropic Ocean Airways Pilots Shannon and Oscar.


Trip Details: Your flight will depart from Sheltair at Fort Lauderdale International Airport. 
Once on board Tropic Ocean Airways seaplane you will fly about one hour to Fresh Creek, Andros Bahamas (this is a quick stop to clear customs and then be on your way). 
After a short 35 minute journey with views over Andros, Exumas, and Norman's Cay you will land right on the water in Big Major Cay.  Our Pilots will pull the plane up to Pig Beach so you can enjoy a few hours.

What to Pack: It's casual so beach attire is best and water shoes if you have them.  Food for the Pigs is a must...and they love their Veggies!

Highlights: Swimming with the pigs and feeding them was exciting.  We enjoyed beautiful views of the islands throughout the trip especially of the Exuma Island Chain.  Not far from pig beach is Staniel Cay Yacht Club's Restaurant which has great conch for lunch and a quaint beach.
