The Oak Island Mystery
The mystery of Oak Island dates back during the early 1800s, when stories about unexplained objects and buried treasure were found on Nova Scotia’s Oak Island. Since this time, a number of attempts and expeditions have been made to locate artifacts as well as treasure in the area. There are numerous theories as to what treasure is on or in the island, from pirate treasure, to religious artifacts, even to Shakespearean manuscripts.
Over the many years since the beginnings of the expeditions, items have surfaced that have been carbon dated and found to be hundreds of years old. These findings are considered treasures, but the main treasure site hasn’t been found. What has been discovered over the last few years is the original shaft dug by early explorers, referred to as the money pit. A few of the most popular theories surrounding the island include natural sinkholes, which is the reason for the money pit, and that there is actually no treasure in the island. Others believe that pirate treasure from Captain Kidd is located on the island along with other items such as masonic artifacts and Marie Antoinette’s jewels.

Early Life and Beginnings in Oak Island
Alex is the son of Marty and his wife M. Olivia Lagina and grew up with a sister. Both of his parents have engineering backgrounds. The family resides in Traverse, Michigan. While there is very limited information about his education, it is known that after matriculating from high school, he enrolled at the University of Michigan’s College of Engineering, pursuing a similar path to that of his parents.
He graduated in 2008 and moved back home to help with his family’s business. His father’s fascination for Oak Island began after they read a 1965 issue of “Reader’s Digest” which detailed the investigation into the so-called Oak Island Money Pit. His father became a successful businessman, founding the oil and gas exploration company Terra Energy which he later sold to CMS Energy for $60 million. Afterwards, he along with Alex’s uncle Rick decided to purchase a controlling interest in Oak Island Tours, which now owns most of the island. The amount to purchase the interest has never been disclosed publicly.
The Curse of Oak Island
In 2014, many years after the Lagina brothers took control over the island, they were approached by television producers for a show that focused on their treasure-searching efforts on the island. The show which would be called “The Curse of Oak Island” follows the two as they make efforts to find what could possibly be hidden in Oak Island. The show also sheds light onto the history of the island, discoveries and theories. There are numerous notable areas on the island aside from the money pit, including Borehole 10-x, and Nolan’s Cross.
The show also features several permanent residents of the islands who have been searching for treasure there for a long time. They also feature independent researchers who discuss theories such as North African gold, and an old French map of the island that could detail potential treasure sites. There were secret projects surrounding the island that involved Shakespeare too, and a project that involved Sir Francis Bacon and Rosicrucians. Other theorists believe that the Knights Templar relocated numerous artifacts there, while some say that the lost treasures of the Aztec Empire is buried within. The show has run for a total of six seasons and was briefly renamed “The Curse of Oak Island: Drilling Down” in 2016.
Personal Life and Other Endeavors
For his personal life, not much is known about Alex’s romantic relationships, and he has never publicly stated whether he is in a relationship or is married. According to various sources, he is single and has never married. He is very close to his family, and shares the same passion for Oak Island, even stating that the place is a complicated engineering problem. He also works with the Oak Island Tours Company, and manages the tours on the island.
The family also built a museum there, which contains articles they have recovered from the island, though photography is forbidden in the museum. The family still owns a vineyard called the Villa Mari Vineyard located in Traverse, Michigan, where Alex works as the general manager. His father is known to be equally enthusiastic about wine, hence the family business. The family also owns a large wind turbine company, which is considered the largest in the state of Michigan, and which Alex also takes some time to help manage that business. The family take some time off work and can be seen at various events including big sports events in the state.
Alex have you finished at oak island if not have you considered pumping air iin to the tunnels to find out were the feeds are it is relatively inexpensive rather then trying to pump out the sea it will also show if there is a link to 10x from the money pit when you pump air in check the swamp for bubbles as I think there is a connection to the money pit
Best idea. Wish they would try it. Would love to see where it bubbles up.
I have always enjoyed history and the storirs that come with it. Your series is one I never tire from watching..even the reruns. Alex, I am so glad that you are involved in the business adventures of dad and uncle..Thanks to all..a Texas lady. Jeanie
I enjoy the show for multiple reasons. The mystery,
Intrigue, history and possible haunting hold my attention.
I record the shows. I watch over and over again. It’s like
reading about the Templar’s or Ivanhoe or any of the wars being fought in or around the era of 1740 to 1800.
Having links to the Scotts and King Louie the 14th, I’m
Curious iito see if the Templar’s made it to safetyk or did the French break ground in Nova
Scotia. I hope the brotherhood of the dig finds many more interesting facts and treasures.
I am a huge fan and have watched for years!! I look forward to them finding treasures that will quite liking change history. Knights Templar.
Hi, I was traveling a lot over 20 years ago & I found a coin like the coin that was found on oak island. My coin had the square center & had writing on it that’s legible. I’d love to send some pictures to Rick & see what he thinks about it. I found it on another continent & I just saw an episode with the coin & I am very interested in learning more about it, & discussing where I accidentally found it. Thanks Rhonda, I hope to hear from you soon.
I have also found those round coins with the square holes and writing on them , even found them in Geocaches and for sale on EBay , ( practically worthless)
Each week I go from watching the week’s episode & soon am anxiously waiting for the following week! Each Season,of course, doesn’t have enough Episodes! (For myself & likely many,many others). I wish it ran every week. (Catch my HUGE HINT?) Lol.
I think I’d dig where the island stands the highest point as I am sure even back then, they were aware of land being taken over by the water. Hence my opinion. I truly desire that you find the Treasure in my lifetime! I am 69 going on 70 in late October. I too, read that Readers Digest about Oak Island! So best wishes to ALL; will continue to savor each moment cheering the Team onward! The show certainly has to be the TopTeaser Maestro!! Endearingly your devoted observer.
Love the show each week when the seasons on.
I especially love the closeness of family and friends
and also about putting the safety of the team and workers that come on site. Simply Love That.
Love the show each week when the season is on.
I especially love the closeness of the family and friends. Also l like the way of putting the team and workers that come on site, their safety above all things.
There is more going on on Oak Island than meets the eye. The Chineese have been there already in 1421 giving the book of Gavin Menzies: 1421 the year China discovered the world.I am following your program with great interst from Holland. I have read as much as I could lay my hands on books about the Knight tempars and came close to join the Freemasons here near my place. Had two interviews but it will take too much of my freedom. The now I came across another book :the Holy Place; from 1991 with tells us about Rennes le Chateau the place where probably the templars had flied to portugal and then over the ocean.. I dot know if you ever read this but I had to get it off my chest. Karel.
I too hope you find treasure before I leave this world. I’m 80 years young and I never make any plans for Tuesday night so I don’t miss an episode. Keep hunting.
I love the show and I hope they prove me wrong. I believe the site is an ancient dry dock for the repair of ships after the long voyages across the North Atlantic. I was probably used for centuries and many Nations. The entire island would have been occupied over time by sailors and soldiers while ships were being repaired. The tunnels and shafts would have been used to drain the water after a ship was floated in.
