Join our team on an actual paranormal investigation of the Whaley House. Recognized as the most haunted house in America, tragedy continued to strike the Whaley family while living in the home, leading to an increase in reported paranormal activity. The eerie history of this historical landmark home, constructed on the grounds of the Old Town gallows, has only increased its notoriety amongst ghost hunters throughout the decades, visiting from all over the world. Explore the eerie lore of this San Diego treasure with our spine-chilling paranormal investigation team.

Before your investigation begins, our experienced guides will share their investigative techniques to prepare you for any strange and peculiar phenomena that you may encounter. Each guest will be provided with and trained to use an array of traditional and state-of-the-art ghost hunting equipment. We use a wide variety of tools of the trade to find evidence of ghosts and other supernatural beings. Any personal recording devices and/or paranormal equipment being brought on tour must be pre-approved by the lead investigator for that night.
