Boos Ghost Walk

Boos Ghost Walk


This charming New England fishing village has a haunted history chock full of ghosts. This tour begins with the boo-tiful Boothbay Opera House – widely regarded as the most haunted building in Maine – and ends with a visit to a haunted tugboat where we’ll share some spirits with a captain’s spirit. In between, we’ll visit Coastal Maine Popcorn’s haunted basement where we’ll attempt communication with the other side by conducting an EVP session. We’ll also visit America’s longest wooden footbridge where we’ll enjoy some beautiful harbor views along with our boos.
