8 Creepiest Unsolved Mysteries of the High Sea
From ships being swallowed whole to resting places for ancient UFO’s, here are 8 Creepiest Unsolved Mysteries of the High Sea.
8. The Kaz
Think that vanishing ship crews are the stuff of ancient lore Think again. On April 20, 2007, three sailors set off from the coast of Australia on the Kaz II, and not one returned from the sea’s deadly clutches, making the Kaz II our pick for number eight.
7. Baltic Sea Anomaly
It is possible that visitors from another world tried to make contact but crashed deep in the Baltic Sea Snicker all you’d like about UFOs and Little Green Men but number seven on our list; the Baltic Sea Anomaly gives even the most hardcore skeptics pause.
6. Devil’s Sea
Coming in at number six is the Devil’s Sea; the Bermuda Triangle’s bigger, badder brother. The Devil’s Sea, or Dragon’s Triangle, is a particularly horrifying patch of sea in the South Pacific that swallows ships with a bloodthirsty zest and alarming frequency.
5. Daedalus Serpent
The most ominous oceans in the world are not just famous for devouring ships or evaporating entire crews. They can also conjure up some of the most hideous monsters known to man.
4. USS Cyclops
In 1918, the Bermuda Triangle gobbled up three-hundred people in one of the most significant single-day losses of life in peacetime on the high seas. That’s why the mysterious disappearance of the USS Cyclops and her crew is our number four pick.
3. Yonaguni Monument
Japan’s Yonaguni Monument is our number three pick. These mystifying, mammoth stairs have had scientists scratching their heads since they were unearthed in 1985. Did this sunken staircase belong to some ancient race of giants Was it crafted by aliens
2. Cannibal Shark
If there’s anything we’ve learned, it’s that the sea is no stranger to dreadful surprises, and our number two pick certainly proves that. Sharks are the apex predators of the ocean, but cannibal sharks are the watery stuff of your worst nightmares. More disturbing, there is at least one cannibal shark in existence.
1. SS Baychimo
Coming in at number one is a ghost ship that has been patrolling the Arctic Ocean since the end of the First World War. The SS Baychimo met a grisly fate trapped in Arctic ice and was abandoned by her crew.
Although the tale of the SS Baychimo is not the goriest mystery on our list, it is the most intriguing because the ship should have sunk to the depths of the chilly Arctic Ocean, but it didn’t.
