The Bermuda Triangle has a reputation of being an incredibly dangerous patch of ocean waters, with frequent reports of ships and aircraft supposedly disappearing into the Atlantic. The loosely defined region stretches from the coast of Florida to the island of Bermuda and Puerto Rico. Due to its reputation, this part of the North Atlantic is also known as the Devil's Triangle or Hurricane Alley.
The reputation has also led many conspiracy theorists to believe the Bermuda Triangle is a hotbed of UFO activity.
At least 50 ships and 20 planes have vanished without sight after passing through the triangle, earning it a chilling place in popular folklore and legend.
Despite this ominous reputation, the Bermuda Triangle is among the most frequently travelled routes.
And in 2013, a lonesome kayaker attempting to cross the Atlantic faced the forces of nature when he entered the triangle.

Aleksander Doba, a Polish kayaker known for his multiple ocean-crossing voyages, sailed westwards across the Atlantic in 2010 and 2013.
His incredible voyages have earned him a National Geographic Adventurer of the Year award in 2017.
Then in 2017 he completed another, eastward journey across the ocean.
But not all of his adventures have been smooth sailing thanks to a stint in the Bermuda Triangle.
As the kayaker attempted to cross this part of the Atlantic, mother nature seemingly had different plans in mind.
