Located off the shore of Nova Scotia, Canada, the island is known as a "Money Pit" and there are plenty of different theories about the treasures that are hidden there

Marty and Rick were joined by father-and-son team Dan and Dave Blankenship, permanent residents of Oak Island who have also been searching for treasure since the '60s. Dan Blankenship died on March 17, 2019, at the age of 95.
