From the Oak Island Tours website:
Oak Island is a private Island and is closed until further notice. Tours are NOT being scheduled for 2022 and the Interpretive Centre will remain closed to visitors until further notice.

Why is Oak Island closed to the public?
1 - The whole crew packed up and won't be back.
2 - They will be working 7 days a week to extract the treasure.
3 - Pressure on the Government to let them work the entire Island.

An interesting development. Could be any of the above or something similar. The only thing certain is that it's NOT because a lack of tour customers; it would still easily get enough tourists to pay for the tour buses, docents, etc for at least another season.

Season 10 was probably cancelled.
Maybe not cancelled yet. Equipment started arriving at Oak Island two days ago. May 13th - New tractor (front end loader) on a flatbed, five 4-seater ATV's, and lots of vehicles. Yesterday - Two new construction trailers. My guess is a busy work schedule that keeps the public out.

So construction begins on the long awaited hoax island amusement park.
It's a pleasant hour away from the rest of hoax TV. This arrived two days ago. The work has started.

More believable content is available on shows such as real housewives of (fill in the blank).

Of course, some folks watch ancient aliens too and believe it to be factual.

Curse of hoax island scripts had gotten so bad that even the actors were having issues attempting to keep a straight face.

Pictures that I post were taken by a property owner on Crandall Road that leads to the Oak Island Causeway.
thanks for the updates,how often do you get out that way?
The photos that I posted were taken by a family that owns property on Crandall Rd. close to the Oak Island Causeway. They have owned the property for 20 years and keep a close eye on Oak Island Drive.

Oak Island has been closed to the public since 2020 due to the pandemic.
Oak Island was closed to the public much earlier than 2020. The exception were tours by Oak Island & The Friends of Oak Island tours. The causeway has been posted with signs and years ago a swinging gate. Nothing has really kept the public from driving across the causeway. I think the "2022 Closed to the Public" will meant just that.

Can't imagine people feel a need to go to oak island as 200 years of digging have proven oak island is the longest running hoax in history.

It's not about treasure for everyone, it's about the 200-year history that you mentioned and an interesting area to visit. Here is part of a 7-camper convoy that wanted to visit the Island.

No, I'm not calling it a treasure hoax. That could lead to a defamation lawsuit. I would really be surprised if they found treasure, but then most treasure finds are surprising. I think I know where they should look.
