Faraz Jaka Swims with the Pigs at PCA
The PokerStars Caribbean Adventure is well underway in the Bahamas. And that means two things: we got to see some of the most prestigious poker players battle it out for some cash and titles in the stunning Atlantis Casino and Resort in Nassau. But aside from the actual poker, we get to see the adventures that these guys are having during their free time, far from the poker tables.
Faraz Jaka, for example, is one player that knows how to step away and enjoy some fun in the sun.
Here’s a short video of our trip to #pigisland yesterday. #swimmingpigs #boatlife #freedom #Bahamas #PCA2018 https://t.co/Nl9gUfIG1e— Faraz Jaka (@FarazJaka)
Jaka went to Cayo Big Mayor, better known as the “pig island,” an uninhabited island located in Exuma, the Bahamas that is populated by a colony of feral pigs.
He got to swim with wild pigs and baby sharks, and go snorkeling. All that sounds pretty incredible and definitely seems like a bucket list item if you were looking for one.

But Faraz Jaka isn't the only one who had the opportunity to swim with the pigs. One year ago, PokerNews' own Sarah Herring ventured out to do the same and oh my gah! it looks incredible. She even got to feed some iguanas. Check it out.
