The warm, lush climate of Florida is a drawing card for many who travel to the southern state, especially during the winter months. Orlando is the theme park center of the world; Disney, SeaWorld, and Universal draw tourists by the thousands. There are many things to do in Orlando, but it seems the theme parks find themselves near the top of the list. However, a new adventure has come to town: Orlando day trips to Bahamas! This Bahamas tour by Bahamas Air Tours is an unforgettable experience. Imagine spending a day on a remote, tropical island surrounded by pristine, white sand beaches with just a handful of tourists rather than the huge massive groups that rush to the theme parks. Experience the authentic Bahamas Out Island life; laid back, crystal clear water, exotic wildlife, beautiful reefs for diving, historical sites, museums, cultural celebrations and tropical cuisine.
Bahamas Day Trip: Come to Orlando for International Fun
There are a plethora of exciting things to do in Orlando that range from the famous theme parks to outdoor attractions such as botanical gardens, eco-kayaking, golf, and boat tours. Looking for a more urban experience, then there are art museums, shopping, spa treatments, and flea markets. Orlando has attractions that fit the bill for everyone especially families, couples, and friends. Orlando is also a large business conference center, and many business travelers find themselves in Orlando on business. If you fall into one of these categories, you will enjoy Orlando day trips to Bahamas.
There is nothing quite like the feeling and the scenic views as you fly over tropical cays that await your arrival. Crystalline aquamarine waters, sunny days and starry nights, white sand beaches, exotic wildlife, and adventures around every corner. Bahamas Air Tours offer preplanned tours of varying lengths, or you can customize your Bahamas day trip with a private Bahamas Air Charter. Rather than take a tour with thousands, enjoy a more intimate trip with up to nine people. You could have a family group that is celebrating an occasion such as a birthday or anniversary. You can have a couple of business colleagues wanting to extend your business trip into the ever-growing and popular bleisure trip (business plus leisure). You could have a group of friends wanting to get away for some quality friend time. Or, you could take your significant other on a romantic adventure for two. Whatever your reason, Orlando day trips to Bahamas will exceed your expectations for a tropical getaway.
Top Things to Do on an Island Hopping Day Trip to Bahamas
1. Authentic Bahamas Out Island Experience
Travel deep into the Bahamas where cruise ships cannot make it in one day. A Bahamas day trip by plane gets you to your destination quickly, so you have more time to spend enjoying all the Bahamas have to offer. Fly like a VIP in our private plane rather than waiting in lines or spending most of the day on a ferry or cruise ship. Get straight to the adventures without wasting time and experience the authentic, tropical Bahamian life.
2. Bahamas Beach Life
If you enjoy the beach, then Bahamas beaches are for you – white sand stretching out for miles. Beachcombing, sunbathing, and water sports are waiting for you. Palm trees, gentle breezes, tasty cool drinks, and relaxation are what the island life is all about. The Bahamas is the sailing and boating capital of the world. See the beautiful luxury yachts as they cruise by or visit a marina and gaze at their beauty. The Bahamas beach life is an experience you will never forget.
3. Famous Swimming Pigs
On your Bahamas tour, you will have the chance to swim with famous pigs. Once you lay eyes on Piggyville and see the cute snouted animals come into the water to greet you, you will be enamored by their cuteness and the wonder of pigs that swim in ocean waters. You will be provided with food to feed the pigs, but please follow the guide’s instructions as they are wild animals and have been known to bite. While these pigs are wild, they are not left to fend for themselves. The locals have taken it upon themselves to provide food and especially fresh water for these little porkies. They take donations of food, water, and money to help with this cause – ecotourism happening right here!
4. Encounter Exotic Wildlife: Turtles, Stingrays, and Sharks
For another taste of ecotourism, swim with Green Turtles, stingrays and Nurse Sharks. You will have the opportunities to meet these exotic creatures in their natural habitat. Observe how they glide through the water and interact with each other and with humans. Meeting each of these species is exhilarating in their ways. Learn about their habitats, what they eat and some of their habits. No day trip to Bahamas is complete without this experience.
5. Enjoy Tasty Cuisine
Tropical fruits, fresh seafood, and the favored delicacy of conch find their way on to almost every menu. Try the flavor of conch in a variety of ways such as deep fried, fritters, salad and even sushi. Fish stews, rock lobster, and baked crab are also favorites. Orlando day trips to Bahamas will give you plenty of chances to try this exotic cuisine.
6. History and Culture
The Bahamian culture finds its foundations comingled with several cultures including the ancient Lucayan Indians, European explorers, pirates and smugglers, British Loyalists who fled America after the Revolution, and rum runners. Orlando day trips to Bahamas will have you exploring the history and foundations of the Bahamas. One of the main industries was colonial plantations and ruins from that time are available for exploration. Salvaging wrecked ships was a big industry as many ships found their demise on rocky coastlines. Some modern shipwrecks are available to dive. Another industry, still active in the Bahamas today, is boat building. Obviously, fishing is a big industry as well. If you like to fish, there are charters for bonefish and big game fish like marlin.
