Founded by Dash Beardly, dubbed the “Ghost Man of Galveston”, Ghost Tours of Galveston takes a unique approach to the supernatural experiences on Galveston Island. Beardly has used his knowledge of the island and interest in supernatural to intrigue tour-goers since he started the business in 1999.
Participants may choose to register for six different tours or a private tour.
- The Orginial Ghost Tour on the Strand is the most popular choice and perfect for a novice. It is a 2-hour walking tour that pairs historical information and hauntings in a family friendly way. It is a perfect choice for those who would like to learn more about why the city of Galveston is considered one of the most haunted cities in the world.
- The sequel to the Original Ghost Tour is the Restless Spirits Tour. Geared towards an older audience, it focuses on more modern occurrences. No reservations are required, but be prepared to be on your feet for a full two hours.
- Uncover the hidden secrets of the dead in the Secret Society Cemetery Tour. The hour-and-a-half long tour tells the lives of the cemeteries residents, some of which have been buried there since the Civil War.
- Other tours include Jack the Ripper Mystery Island Tour, Late Night with Restless Spirits and the Ashton Villas Ghost Hunt (only offered in October).
