  • Key West Ghost and Mysteries Tour - Check-in for the ghost tour is no later than 8:45 at the corner of Duval and Caroline Street in front of the Porter Mansion on the Duval Street side. There is a small booth just at the entrance to the property, at the beginning of the 300 block of Duval Street, and that is where you will do your check-in. At 9pm the guide will depart and walk you down Rose Lane for an introduction to the tour which includes some Key West history, terminology used when talking about different spirit sightings, instructions on how to take pictures, and general guidelines. Key West is Florida’s second oldest city and one of the most haunted locations in the country. From Rose Lane you will walk to the end of the block stopping at the Casa Antigua, Ernest Hemingway’s first Key West residence where he fell in love with Key West and wrote “A Farewell to Arms”. You will hear what happened in this interesting building and the ghostly story about The Watcher. The tour then moves up to Eaton Street to the Artist House where you will hear the story of the creepy, Robert the Doll and see where he used to live. Next the tour moves to Bahama Street where the oldest graveyard is located in back of Saint Paul’s Church. You are invited to use the dowsing rods at this point to try to engage spirit activity. Just past the graveyard is the Dean-Lopez Funeral Home. This stop is where the strange tale of Count Von Cosel and Elana is related. This story is stranger than fiction, but it’s all true and documented. You now will wind back around to the La Concha Hotel and hear what happened at the tallest building in Key West. It’s a ghostly tale, but not what you probably think. Next the tour moves to the Oldest House and Gardens to explore the grounds at the back of the house, and hear stories about the family who lived here and learn about the many ghostly sightings. This is the most active location on the tour and many guests get pictures on their cameras. Finally, the tour moves inside to hear the chilling tale of a prominent Key West family at their former residence. As the tour concludes, there is time for stories and picture sharing. The tour is interactive and questions are encouraged. The tour ends at 10:30 across the street from where it started.

Fun evening! - When you visit Key West it's always fun to do a ghost tour...I have gone on other tours and some have been fun, but I came back for the stories and overall experience with Southermost Ted! I was excited when I heard he would be our guide.....we did the tour a few years ago when our kids were younger and always compared any other tour we did with this one! Someone in our group got a great photo! It is definitely a fun way to spend an evening in Cayo Hueso!

Fun and interactive! - Ted was a great tour guide! He brought every story to life, well versed in history of the town. The walk was not too far, very safe, but still covered a good amount of area. We had interactive “ghost hunting” activities that everyone got to be a part of. I attached 3 photos I took MYSELF of a weird square-ish orb that appeared in front of a building on the bottom left street as the spirits were out to play with us this night. Very cool as I have never caught something on camera!!!

We had a blast! - Our guide Ted, Southernmost Ted for the socials, was an absolute gem of a ghost tour guide! He made the experience truly something amazing and we absolutely walked away a little wiser because of him. Was the photo a camera error? Or luminous phenomena? The world may never know! What we do know: we had a blast
