Getting There

Fly to Treasure Cay Airport, where a taxi will take you to the ferry dock for departures to Green Turtle Cay (New Plymouth). Once at the dock, you may have to wait a while for the ferry. The crossing takes about 15 to 20 minutes, and the boat will take you to the Green Turtle Club, if you're staying there, or otherwise to New Plymouth. This land-and-sea transfer costs $20 per person round-trip.

Special Events

One event that draws visitors in droves is the Green Turtle Club Fishing Tournament, held in May. In 1984, the winner hooked a 226kg (498-lb.) blue marlin; it was so heavy that the competing participants from other boats generously climbed aboard the winning craft to help reel the fish in. For more information, contact one of the Bahamian tourist offices or the Green Turtle Club (tel. 866/528-0539 or 242/365-4271; www.greenturtleclub.com), which more or less becomes the tournament's official headquarters each year.
