Haunted Boat Rides Return to the Hudson Valley
Haunted boat rides where "restless spirits of those who perished on its treacherous waters return to the surface," will be available to Hudson Valley residents this Halloween season.
Starting Oct. 25, the Hudson River Maritime Museum will be running after-hour tours for a "Haunted Boat Ride of Rondout Creek."
"Every October on the Hudson River, all the restless spirits of those who perished on its treacherous waters return to the surface and gather at the Rondout Lighthouse. Visible to the eye but harmless to the living, these spirits come together to remember and recount the perilous and often tragic stories of their demise," the company says.
Customers will first meet at the museum in Kingston to hear tales about Hudson Valley ghosts. Then you board the museum's tour boat "for a spooky trip around the Rondout Lighthouse."
Tours will run from Friday, Oct 25 until Friday, Nov. 1, each day from 4 p.m. until 8 p.m. A new tour runs each hour. Officials say the 4 p.m. tours will be less scary, so the earliest tour is recommended for families with young children or people who are easily frightened.
Tickets must be purchased in advance online. Tickets cost $29 for adults, $25 for seniors (62+) and $25 of children 12 and under.
