The deserted island of Isle Haute measures a half mile in width by one-and-a-half miles in length and is purported to hold the treasure of the hideous 18th century pirate Ned Low. Most of the shoreline is dominated by 300 foot high cliffs, deadly traps for beachcombers who wander too far and are trapped by the roaring tidal bore of the Bay of Fundy, which boasts the world’s highest tides.
Explorers Club director, Dale Dunlop, narrates a fascinating video which gives us a bird’s eye view of the island and insight into its secrets. Yours truly expounds from the depths of a treasure pit on the legend of Ned Low, the “moving island” and its flaming ghost that guards the treasure and dooms those who seek its secret.
Dare to watch and learn about this little known, exotic islet:
