Ghost Tours Evening Experience at Discovery Harbour (Saturdays)


Missing artefacts that mysteriously reappear, chess pieces that move, and the image of a small child in a window...These are just some of the unusual happenings that occur at our historic site. Your costumed guide will escort you to and through these spooky locations and paint the picture of how these legends came to be.

Visitors have reported seeing, hearing and feeling these haunting apparitions and some have even had to sleep with the lights on after a tour!
