Sable Island

A small Canadian island with a crescent shape; with an area of about 34km2, it is quite narrow. Its shallows and intense weather have caused a large number of shipwrecks. As an extra, there is a large herd of feral horses. The population is minimal.

See a nice map with all the shipwrecks.


Relatively large area and water, the island is closely monitored by the Canadian Coast Guard. There are natural gas and oil drilling rigs nearby. No human is allowed to interact with any of the island's wildlife because it is a wildlife preserve and is protected by the Canadian government.
