Join us on a bar crawl not meant for the faint of heart, as a tour guide walks you to some of Annapolis’ most haunted taverns.

You’re a unique traveler looking to branch off from the typical tourist destinations Annapolis has to offer. So why miss out on some of Annapolis’ most legendary tales? Learn the terrifying history that locals have passed on for hundreds of years by going on an adrenaline-rushing adventure unlike anything else this historic city has to offer.

Because even non-traditional tourists deserve a memento from their travels.
6: You want to learn more about the Chesapeake’s pirates and privateers
You can’t talk about the Chesapeake area without talking about pirates. Pirates ran rampant in the Chesapeake and eastern Atlantic for hundreds of years, with some of the most famous having frequented the city of Annapolis back in the day. Some of these swashbuckling pirates include Edward Teach, better known as Blackbeard, and Scottish Captain William Kidd. There’s even said to be secret pirate treasure buried on Gibson Island just north of the city — though it has yet to be found. On our tour, you might not find gold, but you will learn all about Hell Point, where for decades sailors have reported seeing the ghastly apparitions of pirates’ skeletons dangling in the cages they were placed in after they were caught.
