FRIDAY, JULY 20: More than 30 ghost hunters from the US are to tour Bermuda’s most haunted spots next month.
US radio host Charlie Adams is to bring a group of tourists to the island to seek out the island’s ghosts and ghouls.
Mr Adams, also a travel writer and author of more than 30 books on ghosts and shipwrecks, is regarded as an expert on the paranormal, with a string of appearance on the Travel Channel, National Geographic Channel and the History Channel to his credit.
Speaking from his home in Pennsylvania, Mr Adams said: “I’ve done quite a bit of research, so I have a general feeling about Bermuda.
“I have a working knowledge of the various sites in Bermuda which are haunted — but I’m keen to hear about more.
“I really want to give the group a sense of the history and mystery of Bermuda.”
Mr Adams said: “I’ve always been interested in history, particularly that of Pennsylvania. I love legends and folklore. Nobody had written about ghosts here, so I did it about 30 years ago and that’s where it all started.”
Mr Adams, who presents the morning show on WEEU Radio in his home state, has conducted similar tours in the US and Canada.
He will arrive with his group on the Royal Caribbean’s Explorer of the Seas on August 27 for a whistlestop tour of the island.
He said: “I’m there for the stories — it’s about creating a sense of atmosphere and I’d be keen to hear from anyone who knows of haunted sites in Bermuda, particularly in the Hamilton area.”
Mr Adams is the second ghost hunter to visit Bermuda in recent weeks.
In June, US ghost hunter Kurt Knapp visited the island after he heard about Bermudian historian and writer John Cox’s books on haunted Bermuda — including Mr Cox’s own Devonshire home.
Mr Knapp, a former US Marine and police officer, runs Ghosts of New England Research Society (GONERS) and has also appeared on US TV, including the recent filming of an episode for the Discovery Channel’s American Hauntings.
The investigator visited Mr Cox’s home — said to be haunted by at least three ghosts — and said he would be keen to come back and investigate the sightings properly.
