Overview

Bar Harbor Ghost Tours are unique experiences found nowhere else in the world.  Our tours are based on sound historical research that gives a cross-cultural view of our shared history and is interpreted to our guests through traditional tribal storytelling methods.  We are a 100% Native American owned company, family operated, and proud to be a woman-owned business in Maine. Get ready for an evening of fun, ghost stories, & Wabanaki Indian spirit tales as you explore the dark side of this beloved seaport village. Discover the untold history behind the area's ghostly activity as you walk the winding paths of prehistoric curses and ancient specters. Hear tales no other tours will tell you and listen to recorded evidence of a resident spirit. Follow your historically dressed tour guide through the shadows of the parks, waterfront, and inside the 1932 Art Deco Criterion Theatre for exclusive access after-hours. Bring your camera and be prepared to sleep with the lights on.

This was a great tour to take. It was fun and interesting to learn local history and legends. Our guide (Jen, I believe) was fantastic and had a wonderful personality. She was funny and engaging.

All of our tours are 1 to 1 1/4 miles. We take the most direct routes to the sights and also try to avoid the congestion of heavy retail areas.
