Boothbay Harbor Experience

Here is a link to a story that a guest on one of my tours wrote. It is about an experience she had the night after her tour with me in Boothbay Harbor. Maybe some of you who’ve also stayed at Captain Sawyer’s have some stories you’d like to share as well?

Benefit Tours

“Getting Away Together,” a PBS travel show, is coming to Boothbay Harbor to film an episode this coming week! Everyone in town is so excited about promoting this special spot!

To help raise needed funds, I’m offering 2 Benefit Tours, one on September 30 and one on October 14. All proceeds from these tours will go toward the fund to bring the Emmy winning producer and his crew to town.

This is your perfect chance to stop putting off joining us on a Red Cloak Haunted History Tour! Boothbay Harbor is just beautiful and of course, very haunted! It’s reported to have the most haunted building in Maine… maybe we’ll see a ghost, but you’ll learn some interesting history as well!

We’ll be offering our Boothbay Cemetery Tours as well, on both of these dates. Information for making reservations in on the website, www.redcloakhauntedhistorytours.com

National Girlfriend Day

I recently found out that August 1st is National Girlfriend Day – so the first thing to do is gather up your girlfriends and bring them on a Red Cloak Haunted History Tour! We will have 3 tours on Wednesday, August 1st (which is also a Full Moon night, by the way!); Camden, Boothbay Harbor and first come first served for Damariscotta or Wiscasset.

The second thing to do is share a girlfriend ghost story with me. Maybe you and a girlfriend had a paranormal experience or explored a haunted house together, or maybe your story is more like mine…

My best friend since early elementary school lives across the country from me here in Maine. She and I were inseparable as we were growing up and each considered the other’s family to be ours as well. My mother used to wear a particular lotion with a distinctive smell – long ago off the market. The night my mother passed away, my girlfriend told me she was awakened in the middle of the night and knew someone was in her room – and she knew just who it was; she could distinctly smell my mother’s lotion – a smell she had not experienced in over 30 years! My mother had stopped in to tell her goodbye.

What’s your story??

Yo Ho, Yo Ho, A Pirate’s Life for Me!

Pirates are taking over midcoast Maine! Good Pirates, of course. This weekend Pirates invade Damariscotta as a fundraising event for charity and next week they take over Boothbay Harbor for Windjammer Days!

To join the fun, we’re doing a special Pirate Tales Tour tomorrow (6/22) for a school group in the morning; and at night if you mention “Pirates” when making your reservation, we’ll donate 20% to the local charity that the Pirates are benefiting! If you ask your guide, Christine, very nicely, she might even tell a pirate tale or 2!

Next week, during Windjammer Days, we’ve tweaked our tours so that there’s some focus on Pirates in Maine (particularly the Boothbay Harbor Area) – yes, there  really were! We’ll also tell a bit about Windjammer history in Boothbay Harbor along with some ghosts, of course!

So… Yo Ho Ho and a bottle of… your choice!

Upcoming Tour Schedule

A note to those of you looking at the upcoming summer/fall schedule… we do not have a firm schedule in all of our towns yet, so do not be discouraged! There will be tours in Camden, Damariscotta, Boothbay Harbor, Wiscasset and Bath July through October, dates are just not firm at the moment. If you have particular times that you’d like to request a tour, please get in touch with me – usually special requests can be accomodated.
