ABOUT THE GREEN TURTLE CLUB RESORT & MARINA 

With an enviable location, the Green Turtle Club is centrally located to be within a short golf cart commute of town and it is the only resort on Green Turtle Cay within an easy walk (less than 10 minutes) from the breathtaking beaches on the Atlantic side of the Cay. Established in 1964, the Resort and Marina were designed and built to be in harmony with the colonial charm of Green Turtle Cay and the Loyalist settlement of New Plymouth. Honoring the tradition of old English-Bahamian hospitality, the Club offers a quality of service and attention to detail that is no longer commonplace, finding a perfect combination of Out Island relaxation and sophisticated comfort. Green Turtle Cay offers myriad opportunities for water- based activities: world class diving, bone-fishing and exciting game fishing. www.greenturtleclub.com

ABOUT THE BIG GREEN EGG

 The Big Green Egg Company was founded by Ed Fisher more than 30 years ago as he set out to develop a modernized version of an ancient Asian cooker for the backyard and the culinary marketplace. Not satisfied with the short-lived materials and marginal thermal properties of the typical kamado grill, Fisher focused on creating the very best outdoor cooker, period. This unique product, the Big Green Egg, now manufactured from advanced ceramic materials, is widely acclaimed as the best outdoor cooker in the world and has gained legions of fans (known as EGGheads) in over thirty-five countries. Often copied, never matched … there is only one, original Big Green Egg — The Ultimate Cooking Experience!
