Ghost Tours

Haunted Waters Ghost Tour

Back from the depths of the Matanzas, Schooner Freedom is reinstating a few haunted sails for this Halloween season.  We are bringing back our classic stories of St. Augustine’s most haunted seaside history. Including spooky tales such as Mendedez’s massacre, the haunted natives at the Coquina pits, and the tragic tale of Andrew Ranson. All our tales are based on the true history of Saint Augustine's more grimm past.  The nation's oldest city is full of spirits, and there's no better way to try and catch a glimpse of one than on the silent waters of the Matanzas.

Join us for our Haunted Waters - Spirits on the Schooner Sail, with your professionally haunted guide, Captain Andy Wiggins.  Reservations are highly recommended.

About Our Ghost Tours

When Freedom started sailing in 2001, a trip we offered every night was a 1 hour "Ghost of the Matanzas" Ghost Cruise.  Our original advertisement read "This one hour spine-chilling cruise gives you an eerie persepctive from the water about legends and tales of our Old City told in the first person.  Enjoy the stories while sailing on St. Augustine's only Tall Ship Schooner.  Come aboard if you dare!"  All of this still holds true for our remodeled "Haunted Waters" sail.  Prepare to be thrilled with the ghostly history of Saint Augustine.  After an 8 year hiatus, the captain and crew (and our ghosts) are thrilled to be bringing this haunted sail back to St. Augustine.
