Discover Norman’s Cay
Norman’s Cay was once the private land of a well-known name in the shady activities of drug smuggling in the 1970’s and into the 1980’s. Though its history is one of scandal and risky business, the island is now an exotic paradise with a secret. One of the past residents of the island, Carlos Lehder, invited a pilot with a WWII C-46 plane that was meant to be exhibited to Carlos for possible purchase. One morning the pilot decided to take it for a spin and made a crash landing in just a short distance offshore from the marina. The plane has sat there, submerged in the waters ever since and has become a staple for the curious and explorers. Shallow waters make it easy to snorkel and discover the wreckage while it is also visible by boat. The plane has many different tails curated by locals, but all contribute to the already colorful past of Norman’s Cay.
