Owner description: Key West is consistently ranked as one of the most haunted cities in the United States and your guide will love to tell you about it. You are welcome to take photos, videos and audio recordings of this interactive tour. Don't be shy - the ghosts certainly aren't! Discover Key West's haunted history with the people who know it best on a leisurely, 90-minute walking ghost tour or ghost hunt through Old Town with visits to the island's most haunted locations. Our tours are authentic, interactive, and top rated. Our guides are unusual and entertaining. Our tour was created by renowned ghost hunter and Ghosts of Key West author, David L. Sloan. We are the original ghost tour company in Key West having been operating since 1996. Our Infamous Hauntings Ghost Tour: Who still haunts Ernest Hemingway's home? Why is the Key West Lighthouse haunted and by whom? Could it be Typhoid Mary? Key West's motto is "One Human Family" so why is there a murdered Klansman on Duval Street? Find out the answers to these questions and more on this colorful tour. Tour will last about 90 minutes and finish inside a haunted saloon's secret 'brothel room'. Can you brave the haunted wheelchair? We walk about 7 blocks and have 7 stops with over 10 tales. This is a family friendly walking tour and all ages are welcome. We do not use any devices on this tour, strictly haunted history of the island from the southern end of Duval Street. Sloan's Key West Ghost Hunt: Your tour will depart from the former ticket office of Pan American Airways and this is home to more than a dozen ghosts. When you check in for your tour, you will be given ghost hunting equipment (with a choice of K-2 meters or infrared laser thermometers and l-rods). These will help you detect any paranormal activity. Feel free to grab a drink from the bar before you start your tour. This is a 90-minute walking tour, which travels a total of 7 blocks on 4 of Key West's oldest streets. Stops vary, but usually include sites of hangings, a visit to a spirit portal with shadow people and a few other locations the guide selects based on activity. There are more than 20 haunted locations along the path and the tour usually includes 8 - 11 of them. We are the only tour that goes inside the haunted La Concha Hotel. Most nights the tour concludes with a visit inside the former masonic lodge. Your guide will share the haunted history of this island and introduce additional ghost hunting equipment, including a device that allows you to communicate with the dead called a 'spirit box'. The tour is historic, authentic, interactive and entertaining. Both believers and non-believers will have a good time. Sightings and paranormal encounters are not guaranteed, but they are common. Your tour concludes with a cleansing to ensure no hitchhiking ghosts hang around.

“Eerie and Convincing!”
Reviewed 28 April 2014

This ghost hunt takes the "haunted Key West" attractions to a new level. Attempts to interact with the supernatural differentiate this ghost hunt from the other 'drive by' or 'walk by' ghost tours on the island. We are given a number of appliances and instruments to detect the presence of the spirits and these devices were reacting to something. Our tour included an exploration of three dark and creepy floors of the old Masonic Temple where we picked up disconnected voices on the monitors along with other indications that there were others with us in the dark. The hunt takes a 'research' attitude rather than a 'let's get scared' approach which makes it all the more real and effective. Skeptic or not, join the hunt and have an interesting night.

Thanks for joining the ghost hunt and for the great review. Really appreciate your group being willing test subjects for one of our first visits inside the Masonic Temple. We've found out even more about 'the whistler'. I'll fill you in next time.

“Interesting and fun”
Reviewed 22 April 2014 via mobile

David Sloan is a great ghost hunter. First of all you can definitely tell he knows a lot about what he does...and enjoys it (which always always great).

He includes you from the start and you will definitely see some intriguing things.

Must do if you are in Key West!!!

“Ghost Hunting at its BEST!!”
Reviewed 22 March 2014

We recently did the Ghost Hunt with David and it was GREAT! The information he shared, using the equipment and finding the ghosts was amazing!!! It got really creepy when we were trying to contact one spirit and a completely different one reached out to us.
I totally recommend this to anyone!!!

“Sloans Ghost Hunt is a Must-Do in Key West”
Reviewed 5 March 2014

I stumbled across David giving a tour on Whitehead Street in March 2014. His engaging demeanor and excellent knowledge of all sorts of paranormal phenomena sucked me in. For several hours I was treated to interesting historical tidbits about this great little city. Davids very informative material spoke to both believers and skeptics alike. There were certainly some fascinating experiences by several members of the group. David ended the tour by inviting all those interested to join him at a local pub, where we continued to swap ghost stories for several more hours. All this for an excellent price.

Do yourself a favor, and when/if you tire of drinking your way down the Duval Crawl and want to spend an evening being both entertained, informed, and maybe even a little bit spooked, go on Sloans Ghost Hunt. You wont be disappointed.
