Love a good scare? Do you also happen to enjoy traversing the Hillsborough River? Well Pirate Water Taxi is combining the two for a mini haunted cruise sure to get you in the Halloween spirit.

On select nights in October Pirate Water Taxi invited the public on board for an evening of ghost stories and haunted facts along the Hillsborough River.


Each tour will be led by a dead-lightful docent who will entertain guests with spooky stories of Tampa’s past. NEW for 2019 a batty fiend will hop on the taxi for new thrills.


The haunted river tours last about 50 minutes each and occur every Friday, Saturday and Sunday in October (except for October 6). Trips depart from the Tampa Convention Center, which is located at 333 South Franklin Street South.

Tickets start at $25 and can be purchased online.
