Deep in the belly and the bottom of Chaleur Bay you will find the town of Bathurst. Here, residents have claimed the legend of the phantom ship for their own. In fact if you drive into the town of Bathurst you should keep a close eye for the road sign that welcomes you with a painting of a burning ship. Folks in Bathurst make a big deal out of the apparition, partly because of the tourism the old legend still generates. However, the phantom ship has been seen by countless witnesses scattered up and down the long, gray coastal stretch of Chaleur Bay.
