What's New for 2022

By popular demand, we have added the Hotel Macomber, allegedly the most haunted hotel in Cape May, to our tour!
Our new route takes us entirely through the oldest, most atmospheric section of Cape May, and features shorter walking times and distances.
Our expanded tour schedule offers more dates and times for guests to join us on a Ghost Caper, especially on our high-demand summer lantern-lit tours and sell-out October tours.

Do You Dare Disturb the Lore of the Shore?
Join us on a Cape May Ghost Caper and uncover the love, heartbreak, glamour, scandal--and of course, death--hidden inside the historic homes and hotels of the nation's oldest seaside resort! On this lantern-lit ghost tour through Cape May’s historic district, you'll hear tales of pale apparitions, bumps in the night, and inexplicable activity along with the history of each building featured and theories about which of its former inhabitants may be the cause of the current hauntings.

What Makes a Ghost Caper?
We call our Cape May ghost tour a "Ghost Caper" because we don't just tell a few spooky stories--we get up close and personal investigating the spirits central to Cape May's most famous hauntings.
Based on extensive research through hundreds of historical documents, our walking ghost tour is as educational as it is eerie, and is a great way to get to know more about the people and places of the past that shaped the Cape May of today.

The stories on our ghost tour trace Cape May's development from its early colonial days of plantations, through its role in the Civil War, to its heyday as a fashionable resort in the late 19th to early 20th century, and show how the spirits of those who called Cape May home then are still present now . . . in more ways than one.

Times & Tickets
Our Cape May ghost tours depart from and return the corner of Washington Street and Franklin Street in front of the post office.
Each tour lasts from 45 minutes to 1 hour, depending on the size of the group, foot traffic in town, number of questions asked, etc.
Tickets must be purchased prior to the scheduled tour time, and can be printed or shown on your mobile device. You can also give our guide the name under which your party was booked to check in.
Meeting Place & Parking

Meeting Place
The tour starts at the corner of Washington Street and Franklin Street in front of the post office. There are public benches available if you arrive early and want to take a seat before the tour.

Parking
We do not have designated parking for the tour, so please make sure to arrive early enough to find street parking if necessary. There is also a paid parking lot, Washington Commons, about a four minute walk from our tour start location.

Know Before You Go

Comfort & Safety
Our walking-intensive tour covers 1 mile and includes around 20-25 minutes of active walking time, so please wear comfortable, well-fitting shoes.
Some of Cape May’s sidewalks are narrow and uneven due to shifting pavement and protruding tree roots, so be mindful of where you step!
You are welcome to use a flashlight to aid with visibility and navigation, and your guide will also alert you to upcoming hazards during the tour.
Weather

Our tours will proceed in light rain, so pack an umbrella or poncho if showers are forecasted!
See policies below for more details on weather-related cancellations.

Accessibility
Our tour pace averages 20-25 minutes per mile in stretches of 1-5 minutes, broken by stops at our haunted locations.
While we welcome the use of mobility aids, our tour route may not be fully accessible due to uneven, narrow pavements.

Our tour guide uses an audio amplifier and carries a lantern, but due to dark conditions the guide's lips may not be fully visible at all times to lip-readers.

Age & Content Guidelines
Guests of all ages are welcome on our Ghost Capers, though we believe the tour is best enjoyed by guests ages 12 and up.
Due to our tour capacity limits, all guests require tickets, including infants in strollers.

The tour does include references to topics some may find sensitive including death by natural causes, the Civil War (including battle, injury, imprisonment, and threat of execution), and a death that was potentially self-inflicted. We aim to treat these subjects respectfully and do not discuss them in explicit detail.
Tour Etiquette

Our Ghost Caper takes us on a route through Cape May's residential streets and stops in front of private homes, vacation rentals, and hotels.
We ask that tour participants remain on public sidewalks at all times and refrain from impolite behavior such as shouting, littering, or otherwise disturbing Cape May's residents and guests.

Facilities
We do not pass by a public restroom or public trash receptacles during the tour, so please plan your bathroom breaks for before or after the tour and plan to dispose of any trash before the tour or carry it with you.
The closest public restroom is the Washington Street Comfort Station, which is about a five minute walk from the tour start/end location.

Policies

Weather
Our tours will proceed in light rain, so pack an umbrella or poncho if showers are forecasted! If a high probability of heavy rain, lightning, or high wind is on the forecast, tours will be canceled, ticket holders will be notified by email, and tickets will be refunded. We will make the final call on weather-related cancellations two hours prior to the scheduled tour start time to give ticket holders adequate notice to change their travel plans if necessary.

If a sudden change in weather conditions in the middle of a tour makes continuing the tour unsafe, our guide will escort you back to the start of the tour or, if necessary, to the nearest sheltered location, and tickets will be refunded.

COVID-19
In accordance with current New Jersey guidelines, we do not require masks, proof of vaccination, or COVID-19 testing to join our tours.

Smoking
For the health and comfort of all tour participants, we ask that tour participants refrain from smoking, vaping, or otherwise using tobacco and/or marijuana during the tour and while waiting for the tour to start at the tour meeting place.

Pets
We can't accommodate pets during our tours, though service animals needed for accessibility are permitted. We do appreciate advance notice if you are bringing a service animal so we can mark your party as exempt from our pet policy, though this is not required.

Late Arrivals
To keep our tours running on schedule, we cannot delay our departure time, so please plan accordingly! Since the time spent at each stopping point is variable, we cannot give those running late a specific place and time to join us at a later point on the tour.

Refunds
Ticket holders may submit a refund request through Eventbrite up to 24 hours prior to the scheduled tour start time for any reason. Please understand that refund requests received after this deadline may not be honored, so please do not book tickets if you are not sure that you'll be able to take the tour!
