When we say “nobody knows Green Turtle like we do,” we truly mean it. Kool Karts was established in 2006 by Mark and Carol Jean Lowe. Mark was born on Green Turtle with a family history spanning 13 generations on the island. Mark’s family opened the original grocery store, Lowes Food, in 1953 which became an island landmark. Mark’s great grandfather founded the first church on the island, the Church of God, and his Aunt Pearl was the last generation in the family to serve as the pastor. Carol Jean hails from the Pinder family, a well-respected name throughout the Islands. As long as she can remember, her family has been involved in the tourism industry. Her parents are well remembered for their popular taxi business on Marsh Harbour. Carol Jean spent much of her youth on the island of Scotland Cay, where she met her lifelong “U.S. family,” the Chasmars from Stuart, Florida. Her warm and generous nature has gained many great friends over the years. So many, her kids are constantly amazed, telling her “wherever you go, you always know someone!”
“We love sharing our local knowledge, making new friends, and providing a service that puts a smile on peoples’ faces. We do everything possible to make sure our customers have a unique and wonderful experience on our beautiful island.”
– Carol Jean Lowe
Green Turtle Cay was established in 1784 at the end of the American Revolutionary War by individuals who wished to stay loyal to the crown, fleeing New England after America gained its independence. These loyalists founded the village of New Plymouth, and soon families began arriving from Virginia and the Carolinas to pursue a way of life loyal to the crown.
New Plymouth is a picturesque town, built in the New England tradition and remains the only town on Green Turtle Cay.
