A day or evening ghostly walking tour which will guide you through haunted Avalon; over the very burial ground the village was built upon. You will drop in on a variety of historic locations which are sure to raise the hair on your neck with their paranormal activity. You will become entwined with the unsolved mysteries, scandalous tales, ghostly sightings, types of ghosts and why they continue to haunt Avalon. Cameras are encouraged. Nothing is made up. It is historic, educational and crazy wild when we have an encounter. The tours last just over an hour and are “G Rated for Ghostly” and are great for families as well as for the serious paranormal investigator or amateur ghost hunter. Tours meet near the Casino and come back into town with some stairs involved. The tour ends at the opposite side of town at the most actively haunted site in town.

This tour was a great way to learn more about Catalina on an hour long evening stroll. Our ghost tour host, Mason, was knowledgeable and entertaining. He spun a good tale and left it to his audience to decide if it was fact or fiction.

An entertaining way to spend an hour in the evening. Our guide, Josh, was very knowledgeable about the island history, and could easily answer any question presented. The stories were interesting and amusing, not too scary for little kids.
