The Sargasso Sea is unique because of its four surrounding currents, including the Gulf (west), Canary (east), North Atlantic (north) and the equatorial North Atlantic (south). It is said to be the only coastless sea on Earth with a width of about 1,126 km, a length of about 3,219 km. Photo: Wonderopolis.

With currents on all sides, unlike the cold North Atlantic, this area is unusually warm due to stable weather conditions and calm winds. In addition, here, you can admire the dense seaweed scene, forming a rug on the surface covering vast water. This is a strange phenomenon found nowhere else in the world. This golden-brown seaweed is called Sargassum. Photo: Geography and You.

The surrounding flow caused the entire seaweed mat to slowly rotate clockwise. The rotation also depends on surrounding weather conditions. Some Portuguese sailors first discovered the Sargasso Sea in the early 15th century. Christopher Columbus, who traveled here in 1492, thought that he must reach the land with a thick brown surface.

Today, science has proven that a series of seaweed does not enter this area by water. They originate from this area, growing strongly to hundreds of kilometers. Although the South Pacific and the North Pacific Ocean have similar flows, no records have been made of the seaweed beds there. Many boats passing through this area sometimes become immobile due to weak winds. Thick seaweed also contributes to the ship's travel delay. Photo: National Geographic.

The Sargasso Sea is called the Longitude Horse when Spanish ships trapped for weeks here thrown away their horses to save water. Transporting large loads through this area is still considered easy and seaweed is not a real threat. Many mysterious incidents have occurred in this area. The missing ships were found in a derelict state, floating on the sea without a single person. Photo: GeoGarage blog.

It was found after 2 days, just like before, all members evaporated. The missing Connemara 4 was also found in 1955, about 225 km from Bermuda. In addition, a number of boats and yachts were found unmanned in the Sargasso Sea between 1960-1980. Photo: Earth Chronicles.
