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 tour’s history 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. At the conclusion of the tour we share with you our album of photos from the tour, and give you the opportunity to fill out a response form recording your own experiences and impressions.
The tour is approximately 2 hours long, plus a brief conclusion.
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.
