“Phantom of the Ferry” Haunts the Lewes Terminal
Paranormal Group to Host Two Events This Summer
(Lewes, DE) The unexplained! The mysterious!  Looking to delve into the ‘unknown?’ Come spend a night with the “Phantoms of the Ferry” on Tuesday, July 17 and August 14, from 7:00 p.m. to 1:00 a.m.  The Cape May-Lewes Ferry has teamed up with Delmarva Historic Haunts, the lab group of Gettysburg Paranormal, to bring you a night of haunted history uncovering the mysterious past of long ago sailors.  As history recalls, hundreds of unidentified sailors’ bodies washed ashore on the beaches of Lewes. In fact, the land beneath the Lewes Ferry Terminal served as burial grounds for these lost seafarers, and some say they are still with us today. 
“The Delaware Bay region has such a rich history and many people are not aware of it,” says Heath Gehrke, Director of Ferry Operations. “Phantom of the Ferry will give our guests an insight into what it takes to be a paranormal investigator while providing a glimpse into Delaware’s unique past. It’s great entertainment that also may spark your interest to learn more.”
The evening begins with a buffet dinner followed by a Paranormal 101 class instructed by the DHH team. Here, students will learn the skills it takes to be an investigator from a real, on the road crew. 
The event costs $35.00 per person and will be held at the Lewes Terminal of the Cape May – Lewes Ferry.  The event is not recommended for children under 12 years of age. Due to limited capacity and anticipated popularity of the event, reservations are recommended. To reserve tickets call our Customer Contact Center at 1-800-643-3779 (FERRY).
