Friday, August 11, 2017, 7 to 9:30 p.m.
Join Ron Kolek of the New England Ghost Project and Jeremy D'Entremont of New England Lighthouse Tours for a spooky evening cruise on Friday, August 11, 2017.
The boat, the M/V Granite State, will leave at 7 p.m. from Rye Harbor State Marina in Rye, NH. For directions to Rye Harbor State Marina, click here.
Cruise through the dark and mysterious waters off the New Hampshire Seacoast, passing close to three reportedly haunted lighthouses — Portsmouth Harbor, Whaleback, and White Island — as well as the celebrated Isles of Shoals, historic forts, and other spooky points of interest.
Kolek and D'Entremont will lead visitors through the uncharted waters of macabre tales and local legends, sharing stories of paranormal investigations by the New England Ghost Project. Learn about the ghostly "Woman in White" who warns of approaching storms at White Island, the longtime keeper who haunts Portsmouth Harbor Lighthouse, and more. You'll also learn about the famous pirates who have reportedly dropped anchor in the vicinity, including Blackbeard and Phillip Babb.
Kolek is the founder and lead investigator of the New England Ghost Project. In addition to hosting Ghost Chronicles on Ghostvillage Radio and iTunes, he hosts a weekly Internet radio show on Toginet.com and has co-written two books with Maureen Wood, The Ghost Chronicles and Ghost a Day.
D'Entremont has been writing about the lighthouses of New England and other maritime history for more than three decades. He is the author of hundreds of articles and 15 books, including The Lighthouse Handbook: New England and Great Shipwrecks of the Maine Coast.
The boat will return to Rye Harbor at approximately 9:30 p.m. There is a snack bar on board the vessel serving hot dogs, soft pretzels, candy, chips, soda, wine, and beer. You are welcome to bring your own food, but you cannot bring alcoholic beverages on board.
There is a large public parking lot at the Rye Harbor State Marina. Please note that the State of New Hampshire charges a $5 parking fee.
