5 Most Amazing Wilderness & Ocean Survival Stories

Mother Nature is unforgiving and life on this planet is a fragile thing. Here one minute and gone the next in the blink of an eye. Despite this however, from time to time people can show a resilience when facing dire circumstances that is nothing short of extrodianry. These are the 5 most amazing wilderness & Ocean survival stories.

  1. Yossi Ghinsberg

It started as a promising adventure. Yossi Ghinsberg’s dream was to hike into uncharted areas of the Amazon rainforest, the thought of discovering places that may never had been seen by man, was something he thought would be spectactular. In 1981 at the age of 21 – After serving in the Israeli Navy, he heading out to South America to make his dream become a reality. Along the way, he met some new friends, Marcus Stamm from Switzerland; Kevin Gale, an American photographer; and Karl Ruprechter, an Austrian who claimed to be a geologist in search of an indigenous tribe and that he knew how to get them into the jungle. Despite hardly knowing each other, the four set out on foot for the remote heart of the Amazon jungle.

  1. Debbie Kiley

It was October 1982; Debbie Kiley was a 26-year old sailor who went out to sail with four other friends on a routine trip from Maine to Florida. From the onset, Debbie noticed there was something wrong. The skipper was lazy, two men on the boat kept bickering and the boat, a 58-foot sailing yacht called the Trashman wasn’t properly maintained. They made a stopover in Annapolis, Maryland and It was here on their next leg when they were caught in a fierce storm. The boat was tossed in strong 60-knot winds and huge 40-50 feet swells. They barely had time to let the coast guard know they were having trouble let alone inflate a life raft when the yacht sank in open waters.
For the next five days, the five survivors clung onto a dinghy and one by one, they succumbed to their deaths.

  1. Joe Simpson & Simon Yates

For Joe Simpson and Simon Yates, the mountains were home. The two young friends were in Peru in 1985, climbing the remote Siula Grande. Simpson was 25 years old and Yates was 21 at that time. The two reached the summit two days after leaving base camp. But they say getting up is always easier then coming down. The next day while decending, Simpson slipped and fell. The impact was so severe he immediately knew he broke his leg and by then he thought he was as good as dead. Being a climber, he knew it would be near impossible to find help and be rescued up in the mountains. Simpson would say that Yates should have left him but instead he tried to help him go down the mountain.

  1. Jan Baalsrud

Part of the Norwegian resistance, Jan Baalsrud was trained by the British in Special Operations, to assist in helping free his country. On March 24, 1943, Jan, with 10 other comrades, sailed aboard a 75-foot fishing vessel named the Brattholm on a mission to destroy a German air control tower. The group was given the name of a storeowner to contact but what they didn’t know was that their real contact had died and the replacement was someone whose sympathies were with the Germans. Soon after landing, the Germans ambushed the Brattholm. The ship was filled with explosives for the mission and since their cover was blown, the men decided to detonate the explosives hoping to buy some time for them to escape.

  1. Jose Salvador Alvarenga

Jose Alvarenga was a fisherman last seen sailing with another fisherman named Ezequiel Cordoba on November 18, 2012. Jose had meant to go with his usual partner, out off the coast of Mexico, but he cancelled at the last minute. Aboard the 25-foot boat, the men managed to capture their fill of fish, but that’s when their luck ran out.
After being hit by a storm, they were blown off course. Jose radioed for help just before all electronics stopped functioning – soon after that their engine died as well. As the storm grew stronger, they were forced to dump their catch in desperate attempt to stabilize the boat. The boat was tossed around while the two men took turns frantically bailing water.

so there were the 5 Most Amazing Wilderness & Ocean Survival Stories

Surviving the elements takes grit, strength and a lot of luck. But more then any of those, as these men and women have shown, it takes a determination and a will to push on, no matter how dire the situation may seem.

438 days in open ocean 😱😨 8 days would be too much.. Unbelievable just Imagine 😶

Flying Dutchman says:

Having spent time in the Amazon it will do you in quick. There is an ant there called an "Azul" or blue that is florescent blue. It goes out and scouts for the nest and when it finds an animal or some unlucky guy it will bite them which causes the animal or person to become paralyzed. Then it goes back, gets the rest of the hive and they eat you alive. In that area, natives would always go in pairs just in case…

Ëvã Çhåñ says:

Damn! The last story and the snow were miracles. I couldn't survive longer than I thought with the temperature only_4

E DubZ says:

The Ernest Shackleton Antarctica survival should've been on this list for sure

Eric Trumpler says:

Aron Ralston belongs here, too.

Goddess says:

Yates was condemned? Really?!! Those condemning him wouldn't even have tried in the first place but they find time in their comfortable situation to condemn this man who 'LITERALLY' put his own life at risk to save another. Hats off to Yates wherever he may be. He is a real life Superman.

Will Murray says:

Why would a geologist be in search of an indigenous tribe ? I'm sure geologists study rocks and earth processes rather than people!

Carlos says:

You forgot to mention that the last guy was actually accused of cannibalizing his friend

Elle Michelle says:

What amazing people with other worldly resolve. Unbelievable strength.

Quaison Malone says:

#5 deserves a film.

The Regressive Progressive says:

There are so many amazing resistance stories from WWII about men and women who risked the most awful torture to defeat the Nazis. I wish more were made into movies and/or documentaries.

rudi joris says:

438 DAYS!!!!! WOW!!!

nayR lluH says:

I’ve never understood people that say they can’t swim. I guess if you grow up in some country where it snows most the year I could believe it

Priyanka Chellappan says:

Power of mind! 400+ days just imagined things!!

Nate Lav says:

Anyone who condemns the guy who cut the rope is an idiot. Dont speak for someone whos brain is shutting down from -50 degree weather and severe lack of oxygen. Neither of them should have survived that night even if they didnt have to help eachother.

Bunbun doe says:

I Shouldn't Be Alive is an awesome show. It has a lot of these stories and interviews with the survivors. Great video.

bryan mcdade says:

I once had to walk 4 miles to get some weed. Stood on a rounded stone and went over on my ankle. It was around 6 degrees Celsius, little wind and a light rain. I had no coat, money, food or water, well I had money but that was for weed. So with a kinda sore ankle, rain and wind howling into my face, I soldiered on, weak and hungry as it was around 6pm and I only had a small lunch. I had to traverse the back roads that get kinda steep and slippy after a while. My mind raced with thoughts of family, friends, regrets, life…fuck all that shit I thought, I must get this weed. Cold, wet, physically and emotionally broken, I reached the weed dealers house, turns out my friend was already there and I got a lift home. I survived! I feel great solidarity with the other survivors in the video.

Barry Toney says:

What about Hugh Glass?

Bjønne Bacon says:

Jan baalsrud;
They were 12 men total. (11+jan)
Not 11… (10+jan)
More false facts
(Video from norwegian movies 9 liv and Den 12.man / 9 lives and the 12th man)

me me says:

I’m wondering how this people even think to jump in place like Amazon . You have to be a little out of brain .
