History of Treasure Cay Bahamas:
According to the community’s history, 17 Spanish treasure galleons sank along the coast of Treasure Cay Bahamas in 1595. It was deemed true when some of these treasures were found but the rest are presumed lost today. Obviously, this historical event gave the island its present name which is Treasure Cay (Cay is pronounced as key). In 1972, the movie “The Day of the Dolphin” starring George C. Scott was shot in Treasure Cay due to the rich aquatic resources such as dolphins, turtles, tuna, and pristine coral reefs found here.
