Updated about 1 month ago.

In Episode 88, Jeff Belanger and Ray Auger stroll the shores of Marion, Massachusetts, in search of the ghost ship Mary Celeste. In December of 1872, the Mary Celeste was found wandering the seas by the Azures Islands in the Atlantic Ocean. When the Brig Dei Gratia approached, the crew could see there was no one on board the Mary Celeste. Nothing was stolen or missing, the ship was in good order, but the captain and crew had vanished. What follows is one of the greatest maritime mysteries of all time.
