Why is Honolulu So Haunted?

The Hawaiian Islands are one of the most secluded places in the world. The islands sit nearly 3,000 from the rest of the United States, protected from the infectious rest of the country until 1778, when Europeans encroached on the islands to claim them for themselves. 

 

Once upon a time, Hawaii was torn by warring chiefdoms that competed for limited resources. Following fifteen years of bloody battles, King Kamehameha united the separate islands of Hawai’i, O’ahu, Maui, Moloka’i, and Lana’i into one kingdom in 1795. In 1810, Kaua’i and Ni’ihau joined the kingdom voluntarily to avoid any additional bloodshed.

Lizzie Borden Tour

Eighty years later, the overthrow of the Hawaiian monarchy caused the ancient culture to suffer under American rule. Bloody battles ensued, taking out Chiefs and Chiefesses from the royal bloodline. These royal deaths resulted in some of the ghosts that roam the streets today. 

Along with the American settlers came diseases like the Bubonic Plague in the 1900s. All these deaths resulted in settlers’ burial grounds and unmarked graves. The graves were disturbed along the way leaving the spirits restless, hanging around in the afterlife. With the native practices and superstitious beliefs of the island people, there are numerous legends of curses and mysteries that haunt the everyday life of the islanders.



Why should you tour with us?

Icon
You want a unique way to learn Honolulu's history

Let’s face it. When it comes to a beautiful place like Honolulu, the stories you’ll hear are those that are filled with a triumphant history that made this incredible city what it is. That history, however, has another side to it and that’s exactly what you’ll hear on this tour. With a guided tour of expert tour guides that are ready to give you an exciting and engaging experience, and not afraid to give you a little scare.

Icon
You're hoping to see a ghost

Our tour is for skeptics and believers alike! While it can’t be guaranteed you’ll witness something you can’t quite explain, you will get plenty of thrills and chills on your tour. The stories of hauntings we tell at each stop on your tour are based on eyewitness accounts and long-lived local legends, and many of the sites boast decades of paranormal activity. We encourage you to take photos!

Icon
You want to do something that doesn't involve the beach

Not everyone is a beach person. Everyone should have the opportunity to experience Honolulu, but if the beach isn’t for you and you’re looking for something a little more on the thrilling side, an authentic ghost tour just might be for you. There’s more to this amazing city than its stunning surroundings, and it’s far darker and grittier than a day on the sand.

Icon
You want to make the most of your Honolulu vacation

When you head home from your vacation, do you really want to have the same photos that everyone else will have? What if we told you that if you take a tour with us, you might just capture some images that you won’t find anywhere else? It can happen. Be sure to keep your camera ready because you never know who, or what might just make an appearance. Now THAT makes for an unforgettable vacation.

Icon
You want to take a different type of island tour

Honolulu is a popular tourist spot and it’s easy to see why. The city is full of guided tours designed to show you points of interest and the beauty that is this incredible part of the world. But there’s more to it and the Honolulu Ghost Tour is where you’ll hear it. The history in Honolulu is rich… and terrifying. Get the whole grizzly story that is too disturbing to be told anywhere else. 

Icon
You want something different to do for the entire family

The stories you’ll hear are true but are told with your family in mind. Your tour guides will walk you to some of the most significant landmarks and monuments as well as discuss the apparitions that frequent them. It’s enough to give you chills, but not enough to keep you away from coming back. We want you to have so much fun you’ll begin planning your next Honolulu trip before you leave your first!

THE MOST HAUNTED PLACES IN HONOLULU, HI

IOLANI PALACE

The Iolani Palace is a majestic, sprawling estate of columns, stairs, and gardens located in the heart of Honolulu. Built in 1882, the Palace would also become home to the last King and Queen of the islands, Kalakaua and the famous Liliʻuokalani.
At the beginning of the annexation and occupation of Hawaii in 1895, Queen Liliʻuokalani was barred in her palace bedroom for eight months due to the belief she was hiding knowledge of a revolutionary attempt to resist the U.S.
The story goes Liliʻuokalani’s morose yet proud spirit still wanders the halls of Iolani, standing at the window of her bedroom, surveying her kingdom.

ATLAS INSURANCE

The Atlas Insurance building on Merchant St. has had multiple reports of haunted activity. Mainly, a grieving woman weeps and wanders the halls, and Karaoke Room #2 always receives noise and physical disturbance complaints. You’d never guess it from the sleek modern exterior, but the Atlas Insurance building teems with old ghosts.

KAWAIAHA'O CHURCH

Locals whisper that this slate gray stone church gets visitations from one of O’ahu’s most infamous apparitions: the night marchers. On moonless nights, when the tide is ever so high, a team of ancient soldiers is said to be heard and seen marching down from the groves above the church. They carry spears and wear protective gear. Locals say to drop to the ground and bow your head in deference as they pass, or else find out what happens if they see you.
