Boos Ghost Walk

Boos Ghost Walk


This charming New English fishing village has a haunted history chock full of ghosts – so many that we couldn’t fit all of them into just one ghost walk.

On Tuesdays, come along for our Sea Spirits, Serpents & Microbrews tour that begins with the harbor’s most notorious unsolved murder mystery and visits a haunted tugboat and several old sea captain’s homes, haunted by old sea captains. In between, we’ll tell some tales about Boothbay Harbor’s very own sea serpent and the many eerie legends that surround the harbor’s islands. We’ll wrap up our walk on the weird side at the Footbridge Brewery where you can enjoy beautiful harbor views along with your brews (and boos)!

On Thursdays, we offer our Opera House Haunts, EVPs & Whiskey tour. This walk begins with the boo-tiful Boothbay Opera House – widely regarded as the most haunted building in Maine – and ends with a visit inside Coastal Maine Popcorn’s creepy basement for an electronic voice phenomenon (EVP) session. Conclude your hair-raising adventure with an adventurous cocktail or whiskey flight and toast to a brave exploration of the unexplained!
