How Geocaching Works
Use of geocaching.com services is subject to the terms and conditions in our disclaimer
Cache looting continues to be a problem here, but a new cache was again put in place September 5th 2015 and, with thanks to an unknown geocacher, an replacement cache was already in place. There are now 2 caches there, one is a square camo box, the other a cleat plastic jar with an original geocache label. Sadly, the treasure is much reduced from the original as I am having trouble keeping up with the modern day pirates.
NaGeira’s treasure was wrested from the dastardly pirate Peter Easton by the people of Conception Bay and hidden underground on the Treasure Island. A recently discovered parchment, unearthed at Guy’s site at Cupids appears to give directions to the hiding place. It reads:
Proceed ye to N47 37.592 / W52 51.436 where for a few pieces of silver ye can obtain sea-going passage. Set a course westward over the Ocean to the Treasure Island where ye make landfall between the black cliffs. Follow the routes of smugglers and blackguards to the Descent Point at N47 38.492 / W52 58.702. Here ye can safely descend the smuggler’s path to the salt water. Behold the tunnel in the southern cliffs. Those with courage, who fear not noisome things, may enter the tunnel and journey to its southern end. The treasure is located 10 paces in from the southern entrance.
The treasure is jewels, trinkets and pieces of eight from foreign lands. Those of you who are young may take a keepsake, but elders amongst ye must make a donation. Obey ye this rule or suffer the curse of NaGeira.
Some early treasure seekers offer valuable advice.
The treasure coordinates are not accurate, as the early astrolabes would not work underground.
Be sure to take a flashlight.
Do not go directly to the treasure coordinates overland due to high cliffs. You may approach from the sea where there is a good beach.
There is lots of interesting trace fossils in the area.
This is a popular place – try not to give away the hiding place.
