|Siletz Bay Ghost Ship: An Oregon Coast Ghost Story|
There are several tales about Oregon Coast Ghost Ships. On Siletz Bay numerous locals have talked about seeing a ghost ship appear and then disappear over the years.
There have been several shipwrecks in Siletz Bay and the skeleton of one such wreckage was visible there until the 80's.
The vessel, likely a schooner or a brig, had been buried in the mudflats of the bay, which was a working harbor in the early part of last century.
This vessel may be the source of a ghost ship, which has occasionally been seen sailing into the bay, though not on the water, and then vanishing into thin air. The phantom ship was seen as recently as 2001 by a bay area resident as it sped full-sail toward her living room window.
Siletz Bay is a good place to view wildlife, stroll on the beach, and take photographs while you wait for this Oregon Coast Ghost Ship to appear.
