Chances are you know a thing or two about the Flying Dutchman, perhaps after seeing it rise from the sea in Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest. In the Hollywood franchise about piracy, the Flying Dutchman is notorious for spreading terror across the seas, while being capable of sailing on the surface as much as underwater –disastrous for those who happen to cross its path.
As sailors get absorbed by the vicious powers of the Flying Dutchman, they lose their humanity, even having characters integrated into parts of the doomed vessel in the movie. However, the idea of the Flying Dutchman did not come out of the blue to the Pirates of the Caribbean screenwriters. Their inspiration was undoubtedly the actual Flying Dutchman of ocean lore.
According to legend, the Flying Dutchman is a phantom ship doomed to sail the open seas and oceans for infinity, never being able to return home. The myth can be traced back to 17th-century nautical folklore that was heavily nurtured by superstitious beliefs of all sorts among sailors. But have you heard about these creepy sightings of this famous ghost ship?
