Ghost Ships

 Ghostly Seven Seas  

This is the month for all things ghostly ; especially those that involve the seven seas!

We came across a fascinating list of ghost ship tales and thought you’d enjoy learning about them.

Here are highlights of each tale:
El Caleuche: sailed the waters off the coast of Chile.  The bewitched crew of this vessel are believed to protect the coast and punishes those who harm the sea creatures there.
HMS Erebus and HMS Terror: 134 officers and men sailed in 1845 towards the Northwest Passage. Not one member of the expedition ever set foot again on home soil.

København: Danish East Asiatic Company sailing ship disappeared under mysterious conditions in 1928. Some say that two years later the phantom vessel was sighted.

Mary Celeste: In 1872, a boarding party on the British brigantine ship found the Mary Celeste ship adrift at sea in the Atlantic Ocean. Had they abandoned ship?

Flying Dutchman: The most famous ghost ship of all, it is said to haunt the waters near the Cape of Good Hope in South Africa.
