Rum Cay is rich in history, natural beauty, fishing, surfing, with a Bahamian authenticity you will only find on such as this remote island. History includes Indians, Pirates, Spanish sailors, Loyalists, Americans, British...and Canadians. Originally named Santa Maria de la Concepcion that all changed when a ship laden with rum wrecked close by and kegs of rum washed up on shore. It then became known as Rum Cay!

Rum Cay Sharks

shark show

There's nothing like watching sharks feeding very close up. During sportfishing season (February-July) the sharks come in at dusk while the captain's are cleaning the fish. The carcasses get tossed into the marina which adds to the spectacle of the Sumner Point Shark Show. Now tie a rope onto a fish carcass and go fishing for shark....lots of testosterone is involved here but great fun for all!
