This tour has been going out almost every night since January 2002! We will share stories and anecdotes from the tour related to the sites we visit, and relevant historic details. The tour is not designed to frighten, but to engage and educate you in the investigation of haunted phenomena.
During the history of the tour we have experienced a wide range of paranormal phenomena, including occasional sightings, as well as paranormal sounds, scents and tactile encounters. Participants have at times described feelings and impressions that match closely actual events that we know have occurred in the places we visit.
Each night is a novel experience, and what will happen is unpredictable. This “Semi-Private” (max 12 ppl) tour is approximately 2 hours and 15 minutes long. On Saturdays we also offer a “Public” (max 25 ppl) version of the tour that is approximately 2 hours long.
Presently the tour visits the grounds of the Castillo de San Marcos (the old fort,) a courtyard and the periphery of two old cemeteries, all within the bounds of the historic district of our nation’s oldest city. This “Semi-Private” version of the Haunted St. Augustine tour also adds on a visit inside a very eerie Victorian building (building could switch) where we put some of the most advanced equipment to work.
