Please note parking idowntown is limited and is not free! Be sure to arrive early enough to give yourself plenty of time to find parking or you may want to use public transportation. This event is downtown so you may want to check to see if there are other events going on that would require additional time for parking. Our tours start promptly at the designated start time and we reserve the right to scalp your tickets if you don’t arrive on time.

Where do I check In?

You will meet your Lead Detective at The Headquarters. Address: 789 W Harbor Dr, San Diego, CA 92101

He or She will be across near the fountain in the center courtyard.

Is this tour appropriate for kids?

Tour Rating: PG13. Please note due to the type of information shared we advise children to be at least 13 years of age. This experience includes discussion of death that some may find offensive. Children under the age 13 are allowed to attend with parental supervision. 

What is your cancellation policy?

All sales are final and non-refundable.

What if it rains?

The tour will go on in a light rain. We highly suggest you bring an umbrella or borrow a trash bag from a local business. (They make decent ponchos.) In the case of a downpour we will cancel. If this happens we will contact you and see if you would like to reschedule for a future date or if you prefer a refund. We will call you at least 2 hours before the event if it is cancelled due to the weather.

Is this a sightseeing tour?

Yes. You will see several of the popular sights along the downtown San Diego Embarcadero waterfront. History, old ships and paranormal activity are just a few of the things that you may find interesting along the way.

Is this a theatrical production?

No, while the ghostly stories and historical locations you stop at are very real, we do not re-enact any of the tales. (You are more than welcome to though.)

Do I need to bring anything with me?

Nope. We do suggest you wear comfortable walking shoes as you will be walking approximately 1 mile in 1 hour. 

Do you have any other tour locations?
