Captain Kidd wasn't a very successful pirate. His treasure was buried on an island in New York City harbor and dug up shortly after he planted it.

Good luck to all,

If I had to guess he probably had 2 main treasure sites one right on the Coast of present day N. Carolina which most likely is long gone. The other in and around the Islands of Principe. I have a few interesting spots.<br>

If North Carolina was smart they should just admit that's where the treasure was burried, I'm pretty sure someone "in the Know" knows the exact location a recreation every year might boost tourism and make a fun day out for the kiddies.



besides who wants to actually go to North Carolina

$10,000.00 I'll tell you where it was buried and what was in it.

It has been stated that Captain Kidd may have buried treasure on Shelter Island which is located off the North Fork of Long Island, N.Y.

IoC: I believe that map is from Richard Knight's Treasure. Pretty much a crackpot, he relied far too much on Harold T. Wilkins.

First hearing of it, oh well.
Treasure hunting will have to evolve to the point where a PVC pipe can be detected, buried with the stashes of cash from the underground world of finances.
