Overview

Galveston has seen a horrifying number of sudden deaths. An ungodly number of the islands dearly departed, well never departed. Their spirits are lurking in the shadows, alleys, staircases and stalk THE STRAND every day! The historic 19th century buildings on THE STRAND have become ghost sanctuaries. And the ghosts inside are just dying to meet you.

Join us on our 90 minute walking tour as we explore the fascinating paranormal happenings on the strand, the original street of horror. Hurricanes, war, fire, and epidemics! The pirate Jean Lafitte even turned the island into a den of thieves. Galveston has more ghosts than any other city in U.S.

Walking in the night, translucent figures will float by the windows. Shadows will suddenly appear and objects move of their own accord as we huddle closer to one another for are mutual protection. We never know what’s waiting for us around the corners. Beware and be scared! After all Galveston is nothing but “a cemetery with a beach attached.”

Ghost On the Strand Ghost Tour

Pirate John was AMAZING! He was very knowledgeable about the history of Galveston and all things spooky about the island. We have been to Galveston several times but had never taken one of the tours. This was definitely worth the time and very affordable since we had ten in our group. John never missed a beat even when we were interrupted by unexpected noises or other people. He waited to finish his story until all could hear again. He is the best tour guide I believe I have ever had!! Watch out for the pirate jokes though!!!

This was our second tour with Historic Galveston Ghost Tours. Both of our guides were incredible... Noel in the Boneyard and John on The Strand. Easily the best time of our week. Highly recommend... great mix of Galveston history and paranormal stories.

Really fun evening. We liked the real history of downtown Galveston and the 1900 storm spiced with spooky stories of ghosts.
