Possibly a play on words involving landing with pigs?

Ah, so I got the wrong fictional pig. Should have googled it in the first place!

Stupid question. These pigs are not dangerous for tubes or at least tube equipment like safety lines or hand held ?

Are there any other destination for snorkeling ? Swimming ?
I'm in depress mode now (between 0C and 5C around the house and boat went to slip) and I'm thinking about much warmer destination - environment.

Nah they're fine with the boats. Seen a few pictures that would make me think otherwise!

We don't let kids under 12 go as they can be a bit pushy. We have great snorkeling in the Bahamas! Come visit! We stop and see other stuff on our tour like low tide sandbanks, deserts beaches and endangered iguanas!

Plus the Bahamas has a ton more to offer! Direct flights from London on British Airways!
