Aloha, and welcome to the tour information page.
The Hawaiian Islands, and especially the island of O'ahu, are well known worldwide for their supernatural phenomenon.
Growth and development of O'ahu over the years transformed many sections of the island to what it is today, a metropolitan/suburban city. During this so-called progress, sacred grounds were desecrated, buildings were built atop ancient burial grounds, and roadways were constructed through rainforests that had been untouched since the beginning of time. Roadways were also built through caves of buried and beloved ancestors. Though steps were taken to culturally preserve sacred areas, disturbance did take place.
On our tours, guests are taken to some of the most haunted places on O'ahu, if not in all of the islands. Oahu Ghost Tours® will take you close-up and allow you to witness firsthand these very unique places...from the much feared Night Marchers, to the places where sacrifices were made to ancient gods and goddesses of Hawai'i, and to the more modern haunts, like those of old hospitals that housed sick children during World War II...from orbs, to extreme and instant temperature changes, to anomalies that seem to have no source. Many of these places are history by day, and haunts by night! Our guides are some of the most experienced experts on telling the stories of these spooky places. All stories are true, and all sites are real. Historical and ancestral information is used, as well as eye witness accounts.
Hawaiian ghost tours are not like the typical ghost tours you may be familiar with on the mainland or in other locations around the world. As Hawaiians have their own way of dealing with the supernatural, you may see and witness several ceremonial events at the places visited. These events which may include chants or other events, are all part of the traditional protocol of asking for permission of the spirits before entering a site. All of these events are important to the Hawaiian people and their personal beliefs. Please be respectful of these. Some of the sites visited may not have a particular story behind the actual haunt. The location may be just a reputed hotspot where paranormal activity is extremely high and ghosts have made it their home for a reason that cannot be explained.
The moon and its phases also play a major role in the extent of activity that may be occurring at a site. To see the current moon phase and to learn about its relationship to supernatural activity click here
MYTHS AND LEGENDS OF WAIKIKI
Our newest night-time walking tour is called MYTHS AND LEGENDS OF WAIKIKI. Did you know that Waikiki was once the home of Hawaiian royalty? Did you also know that this tourist mecca full of hotels and nightclubs is also full of haunted hot spots and unexplained and creepy events, some that will make your skin crawl? Similar to the New Orleans ghost walks and St. Augustine ghost tours on the mainland, this tour though conducted in the busy and noisy Waikiki is full of ghostly locations, stories, Hawaiian history and culture. In fact, one of these extremely frightening stories was told and involved one of our very own guides in a television show from one of our former guests on the channel called My Haunted Vacation. From periodic sightings of the Fire Goddess Madame Pele to the Choking Ghost of Waikiki who waits for just the right moment when you go to sleep in your hotel bed to attack, Waikiki is more than just fun and tourists. It also has a very dark side. Our guides take you on an almost two hour walking tour of these sites to share the creepy stories associated with them.
