Seaplanes serviced Green Turtle Cay in the mid-20th century

Photo: Albert Lowe Museum

In the mid-1900s, visitors and locals could travel to and from Green Turtle Cay via seaplanes, which arrived at Settlement Point. Does anyone know why the seaplane service ended?

P.S. The men in last week’s Museum Monday photograph were Lincoln Jones and Verdell Cooper.

  1. Amanda, this came to an end when the two airports on the mainland opened, in 1958. The one in the north wasn’t called Treasure Cay, but Green Turtle Cay airport, and the ferry dock was in a different place. It was a dock which was immediately opposite the terminal buildings at the old airport. As a very young child, I made several journeys from Nassau to Hope Town on the seaplane, which was a surplus navy PBY from World War Two.
