Bus Tour of Haunted Dorchester – Hoopers Island, Blackwater, Church Creek & Cambridge
Did you know that the marshy, forested blackwater region of Dorchester County has had two people vanish without a trace, coffins floating up to the door, a wildmen seen in the marsh, two brothers locked in an attic, a location called The Seven Gates of Hell, and a UFO that was seen by scores of people — in some cases only feet from the hood of their cars? Hear these and over a dozen more stories about the haunted landscape of lower Dorchester County in the comfort of a luxury bus.

STOP AT OLD SALTY’S — EXTRA. Buy a drink and a snack
here will be an opportunity to purchase a snack at Old Salty’s and buy a drink if you care to. We’ll have almost 30 minutes to roam that haunted property and hear from some of the staff.
