The Flying Dutchman is a legendary ghost ship that can never make port and is doomed to sail the oceans forever. The legend originated from 17th-century nautical folklore – in Myrtleville, of course, with the Dutchman rocks appearing each tide to remind us of our fate if we get too close.
On this Halloween night, it’s worth remembering that you might want to watch out for more modern versions of ghost craft if you’re swimming near the rocks. Sightings of demonic figures are increasing. Swim!! Swim for your life!!!
