Again the ice-barrier forbade his entrance to the polar seas. Determined not to return fruitless to Amsterdam, he sailed around the southern shores of Greenland, into the beaten track of searchers after a northwest passage. Again he was repulsed by the ice. Sailing southward, he discovered the American continent off the coast of Maine, and in Casco Bay he repaired his storm-shattered vessel. He then sailed southward as far as the Cape of Virginia, touching at Cape Cod on the way.

He fought the ice-floes and storms for many weeks, and then returned to England in September, bearing only the fruit of the discovery of the island of Spitzbergen. Neither he nor his employers were disheartened, and late in April, 1608, he sailed again, expecting to make a passage between Spitzbergen and Nova Zembla. Again he was compelled by the ice to turn back. His employers were now discouraged, and Hudson went over to Holland and offered his services to the Dutch East India Company, and they were accepted.

In 1610 he sailed from England on his fourth voyage, this time in the northwest. He discovered the bay that bears his name in the far north of the western hemispt of the ice-floes to the open sea, and then cut adrift. The fate of the castaways was revealed by one of the mutineers. England sent an expedition in search of them, but no trace could be found.
