Located 300km south east of Halifax you will find a windswept island of sand. Sable Island is a place that many can only dream of exploring and if you haven’t, you will start dreaming after this.
It is known for the inhabiting colony of wild horses and grey seals. Sable Island is also known as the graveyard of the Atlantic. More than 350 vessels have wrecked and sunk on its sandbars and shoals.
This video footage shot by Brinton Photography for Parks Canada will blow you away and make you start saving for a trip to Sable Island to discover what very few will in their lifetime.
Cost is the largest barrier for those who wish to visit. The cost to fly and visit Sable Island for a day will cost you what a week on a Caribbean island would. There are also some private expedition companies that will take you by sea.
Unless you own your own private vessel, Sable Island is a destination that is out of reach for most. You cannot camp on the island, you must return the same day.
Add a trip to this island oasis to your ultimate bucket list. Start planning it by visiting Park’s Canada website.
