Random Creepiest Ghost Stories from The Sea

    The Lady Lovibond

    The Lady Lovibond

    [ranking: 12]
    Why have there been reports of a ghost ship sailing the English Channel every 50 years since 1798? Perhaps the story of the Lady Lovibond could explain some things.
    Legend has it that the ship was deliberately wrecked in the English Channel sometime in 1748 by the ship's first mate, who unsuccessfully made advances on the captain's wife. When the first mate saw no other way out, he did what he had to do.

    The Mary Celeste

    The Mary Celeste

    [ranking: 6]
    In 1872, after just one month at sea, the Mary Celeste was discovered sailing aimlessly near Portugal. Curious, the discoverers boarded the ship, only to find the lone lifeboat was gone and the crew was nowhere to be found.  
    Piracy and mutiny were ruled out??there weren't any signs of violence aboard the ship, and the crew's belongings were left untouched.
    Over the years, people have both theorized that the crew abandoned ship, or that the Mary Celeste succumbed to the mysteries of the Bermuda Triangle. Either way, legend has it that every time the ship changed hands, the new owner would sell it after hearing about its history of bad luck. In1887, the boat was purposefully destroyed by its owner.

    The Ourang Medan

    The Ourang Medan

    [ranking: 1]
    The legend of the Ourang Medan may be one of the creepiest maritime ghost stories ever told. It goes as follows: two American ships received a signal from a Dutch cargo ship in distress. When the rescuers boarded the ship to save the crew, they made quite a grisly discovery. The entire crew was dead, without any signs of foul play.
    It is said that terror was frozen on the faces of the corpses, which lie all throughout the ship, many with their arms reaching out for help. Before an investigation could get under way, the ship burst into flames, burning any evidence which may have helped solve the mystery of the Ourang Medan.

    The SS Valencia

    The SS Valencia

    [ranking: 11]
    If there's one thing to be careful of when evacuating a sinking ship, it's to avoid panicking. Take the circumstances of the passengers of The SS Valencia, for instance??136 people were killed when the ship encountered bad weather and crashed into a reef. Hysteria broke out aboard the ship when passengers sought a way to flee the sinking ship, which ultimately led to two capsized lifeboats, while another disappeared altogether. Legend has it that one of the lifeboats washed ashore some 27 years later.

    The Kaz II

    The Kaz II

    [ranking: 4]
    Let's momentarily flash forward to more contemporary times. It's April 20, 2007, and the Kaz II, aka "The Ghost Yacht," is found drifting near the Great Barrier Reef off the eastern coast of Australia. The three-man crew (all of which are said to have been knowledgable sailors) is nowhere to be found, and surprisingly, there are no signs of piracy or foul play of any sort. 
    What's even creepier is that a video camera was found aboard, and was said to have contained footage of the three men sitting around, fishing in choppy water, five days prior to the boat's discovery. Could the crew have succumbed to the ocean's waves? Perhaps we will never truly know.

    The Jenny

    The Jenny

    [ranking: 7]
    "May 4, 1823. No food for 71 days. I am the only one left alive," reads an ominous entry of the Jenny's captain's logbook. When whaling boat Hope came upon the Jenny 17 years later, said captain and his crew were found aboard, frozen to death.
