Ghost Ships, pirate raids, nautical legends and tales from the high seas- get ready for an authentic journey into the 'darker' side of St. Augustine's maritime history! We've proudly teamed up with the Nao Victoria Foundation of Spain to offer this private, lantern-lit ghostly walking tour which ALSO includes a night-time visit to these magnificent vessels... after hours, when the sun has set and the spirits have become active! Both the Galeon Andalucia as well as the Nao Victoria are authentic, wooden replicas of historic 16th century Spanish vessels. They now circle the globe annually, and we're very lucky to have them call St. Augustine Florida their home port for certain periods throughout the year. For more information on the ships and the Nao Victoria Foundation in Spain, please click here.
As the ORIGINAL Ghost Tours of St. Augustine, we are extremely proud to have been granted exclusive permission from Spain to actually bring our guests onboard these fascinating ships at night during our tours! This enchanted evening tour is a MUST DO experience when you are lucky enough to be in St. Augustine when the ships are here! This experience includes a visit and tour onboard one, or even both of the vessels- depending on their US port schedules. You will begin your ghostly tour at our downtown office, where you'll then wind your way through St. Augustine's darkest off-the-beaten-path back alleys in search of the supernatural. Explore haunted sites and learn the chilling tales which made these old brick streets famous. Follow in the footsteps of buccaneers from eras past... and then once you've found your way to the City marina during the tour with your guide, you will actually board these eerie ships at night... if you dare! Enthralling tales of rogue escapades and ghosts at sea are shared among shipmates, as you meet and interact with the authentic Spaniard crew members who all actually live and work aboard the ships. Experience what life at sea on these ships was like both throughout history as well as now in modern times.
