Dark of the moon time at Lighthouse

SAINT AUGUSTINE – With only a glow stick for light, Dark of the Moon Ghost Tour guides share the history of the people who have lived and worked in the St. Augustine Lighthouse.

Dark of the Moon is the only ghost tour that gets you onto the lighthouse grounds at night. Guests can climb the historic St. Augustine Lighthouse tower in the dark, explore the Keepers’ House (and basement), and enjoy the Maritime Hammock nature trails!

As a nonprofit, our mission at the St. Augustine Lighthouse & Maritime Museum is to keep alive the stories of this historic place. Dark of the Moon ghost tours help fund the Lighthouse Archaeology Maritime Program which helps tells the story of St. Augustine’s maritime history.

The  tours are a history lesson but the darkness and the power of suggestion combine to create an eerie atmosphere.

Tour guides are not dressed as re-enactors and nothing jumps out to scare people, creating a more authentic experience for our guests.

The St. Augustine Lighthouse & Maritime Museum was recently voted No. 3 on USA TODAY 10Best list of America’s Best Haunted Attractions!

Tours are held on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday nights this time of year, with additional tours added during the summer and select months.
