Ocean City Ghost Walk

Ocean City, Maryland  – Has ghosts?

Join us for a walking tour that follows a trail of haunted properties in the historic district of Old Ocean City, Maryland. Hear about child spirits in the life-saving station, the Crying Indian, the Colored Hotel, the haunted trifecta (murder, suicide, accidental death – all in one place), unrequited love, a candy-loving ghost and more.

This tour is a circular route starting and ending at the Ocean City Inlet at the end of the Boardwalk, and is approximately an hour and a half of scary stories and Ocean City’s mysterious history.

PLEASE NOTE: WE DO NOT GO INSIDE THE PROPERTIES.  This is a ghost walk where stories of hauntings and unexplained events are shared while standing outside the property. This is not a paranormal investigation and we do not guarantee ghost sitings.  We do, however, offer paranormal investigations in nearby Snow Hill.



SITES ON THE OCEAN CITY GHOST WALK include the Ocean City Lifesaving Museum, Tarry-A-While guest house, the Henry Hotel, Atlantic Hotel, Shoreham Hotel, Trimper Amusements, and Dolle’s Candyland.

    1. You can book as far in advance as you want to, Michele. If the tour is on our calendar, the tickets are for sale. Our guides aren’t prepared to take cash on site, so you must book ahead. There is a limit to the number of guests allowed on the tour so the later you wait, the more likely it will be that the tour is sold out. Hope this helps.

    1. Kid tickets are sold for $15 for kids ages 8-12. Over 12, they need adult tickets and under 8 they are free. The exception is the Princess Anne tour. Due to the harsh content, guests must be 13 or older to attend that tour.

  1. Our family took an OC ghost walk on August 1, and found it really interesting! Our guide was Mary, and she did a great job of telling the stories of the possibly haunted places on and around the boardwalk. Very glad we took the tour!

  2. We had a wonderful tour with Karissa last night in Ocean City. She was perfect! We learned a lot of history as she shared stories about the local haunted lounge cations and their hauntings. What a great way to enjoy a night on the Boardwalk. Thank you! —Lisa A. from CT

  3. how far in advance do you need to book tickets? are they available the day of the walk?

    1. Hi Carl. You can book your tickets to any walk on our calendar in 2018. They may or may not be available the day of the walk. It depends on whether or not the tour has sold out. Tickets are limited to our maximum guest count based on the particular town. All tickets must be ordered on line in advance. But you can get a full refund with no questions asked up to 48 before the start of the walk. After 48 hours, all sales are final. Hope to see you on a walk some time.

  4. Visiting Ocean City the week of September 24th thru the 29th and was wondering if the Ghost Tour at the Life Saving Station would be available that week. Thanks

    1. Hello, Annette. Unfortunately, we do not have any Ocean City Ghost Walks scheduled during that time. We do however have a walk in Salisbury and one in Berlin on the night of the 29th. They both begin at 7:30 and are fairly close to Ocean City. Please let us know if you have any other questions!

  5. This was incredible experience! So much history and things to learn. Mary Beth was an amazing guide! Extremely knowledgeable and a great storyteller! I would definitely recommend this tour. Looking for something different to do in Ocean City? Take the ghost walk!!!!

  6. I’d like to go on the ghost walk tonight, but I’m not sure what time we’ll get to OC. Don’t want to make a reservation and not even be in town when the ghost walk happens! How far in advance do I need to make a reservation?

    1. Micol, you can call the ghost phone right up until the start of the tour 443.735.0771. We can run the tickets purchase with your credit card instantly and notify the guide that you’ll be there.
