Patriots Point Naval and Maritime Museum in Mount Pleasant has a new tour for the public that will show a more spooky side of the retired World War II aircraft carrier Yorktown.
The Charleston Post and Courier reports the museum will begin offering ghost tours on the Yorktown this week. 141 sailors died on the ship during World War II and there are reports of unexplained noises, footsteps, and shadowy figures.
Patriots Point officials say it will be a 90-minute guided tour offered year round. It will include a short introductory video with clips from an episode of the show “Ghost Hunters” that featured the Yorktown.
Officials say they are offering the tour because of the public’s interest in the paranormal. Plus, the ghost tour will give people a chance to see areas of the ship that are normally off-limits.
Tours start Friday evening and cost $25 per person. Advanced three-hour tours are available for experienced ghost hunters at $45 per person.
