They leave Halifax, NS aboard the 36-foot sloop Tazzarin to explore the past, present and future of one of seafaring's most feared places. Known as "The Graveyard of the Atlantic", Sable Island is infamous for hundreds of shipwrecks over four centuries. Perched between the conflicting flows of the warm Gulf Stream and the icy Labrador Current, Sable, with her frequent fogs, storms and ever-shifting shoals became the byword of those "in peril on the sea." Shipwreck survivors, wreckers, sealers, explorers and lifesaving crews intertwine in the distant island's history. The tales of both tragedy and rescue on this faraway Atlantic outpost are inspiring. The team's archaeologists uncover Sable's past amid a backdrop of endless sand dunes, wildlife and ocean. Sable's isolated location and dangerous waters have held aspects of its haunting past a mystery. Today Sable is home to wild horses that have roamed the isle for centuries, thousands of nesting birds and the world's largest population of grey seals. Species of birds, insects, marine mammals and an iconic horse breed depend on Sable for their existence. This fragile, yet enduring 26-mile, crescent island is the newest gem in the Parks Canada array of a nation's natural wonders. A blend of contemporary video, historic film and stills reveal the magic and mystery of Sable. See less
