This unique two hour tour combines history, mystery, ghost stories and legends taking you on a journey into Galveston's richly unknown past.The Strand District private tours are conducted by reservation only.

Behind the hair and sunglasses, there lies a brilliant mind. A mind that with a ton of creativity, sheer force of will, and a little bit of luck, created Galveston's very first haunted walk of the Strand. Always intrigued by the mysterious, Dash relentlessly researched Galveston's history, delving deep into its past, uncovering many secrets along the way. On his tours, Dash shares his love of Galveston and of course his fascination with the myriad spirits that roam among the living on this very haunted island. Dash is a true steward of Galveston's past, and loves nothing more than entertaining a crowd while giving them a glimpse into a side of Galveston that for decades remained hidden. So, on a dark and stormy night, if ever you see a tall, shadowy figure clad in shades of ebony, walking with purposeful intent along the Strand, you can bet you've crossed paths with Dash, The Ghostman of Galveston..........

Dash Beardsley 20 Questions

1. Where do you see ghost hunting and Paranormal groups, or ghost Tours like your own in 10 years?

Expanding in many different areas that people might not just imagine at this point in time. I see more and more people on my tours everyday. and many of them say they are finally ready to open up and let the world know they have seen a ghost!

2. What would you consider to be the definitive proof that ghosts are real?

Unmistakable answers from the other side on a personal level, which could not be faked. Verified personal experiences that Life after death is real. And I have had them. It is really a personal matter with each and everyone to what they see feel and believe.

 

3. What is the most real evidence you have uncovered so far?

A real ghost and psychic encounter which will be discussed very openly in my new book. The experience shook me so much I became even more of a believe then! Most of the time, ghosts are just a symbolic manifestation of the vibration in the environment and the sense of someone being right next to you. But things that happened to me were real and affected me on several levels.

 

4. Are you skeptical of the claims other make of their findings?

I feel all evidence needs to be supported and measured. Yes I stay skeptical of all the info I get, weighing it against known facts and history. Throughout history there have been references to people communicating with dead loved ones and strangers. Almost all religions across the world have some kind of supposition about ghosts, and these haunted ghost stories have survived through the ages. But are they just stories?

 

5. If you could investigate your "Dream Haunted Hot Spot" where would it be?

I do Live here! " Galveston Island Of Course." The Great Storm off 1900, this hurricane caused great loss of life. The death toll has been estimated to be between 6,000 and 12,000 individuals,depending on whether one counts casualties from the city of Galveston itself, the larger island, or the region as a whole. The number most cited in official reports is 8,000, giving the storm the third-highest number of casualties of any Atlantic hurricane, after the Great Hurricane of 1780 and 1998’s Hurricane Mitch. The Galveston Hurricane of 1900 is to date the deadliest natural disaster ever to strike the United States. By contrast, the second-deadliest storm to strike the United States, the 1928 Okeechobee Hurricane, caused approximately 2,500 deaths, and the deadliest storm of recent times, Hurricane Katrina, has caused approximately 1,600 deaths.

Many are the tales of close encounters with what some believe to be the phantom fleet of Jean Lafitte; some claim to have seen the pirate himself standing at the helm of the lead vessel.

Workers on the oil platforms that dot the Gulf of Mexico claim to regularly spot a billow of sails on the horizon just before sunset, always heading east into the gloom. Crews of offshore supply vessels claim that in the middle watch they have heard the flapping of sail riggings and the cry of phantom voices, calling out in the Creole patois once spoken in Barataria commands to a ghostly crew. Small boats, it is said, have been almost swamped by the passage of the ghostly fleet that is said to produce visible white foam where the bows break the waves and a tremendous wake in the dark waters.

 

6. What was your first Paranormal encounter?

I had my first encounter when I was very young. I thought it was a real person. I guess I did not know what a ghost was and when I learned what they were I realized that I had encountered one.

 

7. What scares you about Ghost Hunting or Paranormal Investigations?

Thinking to myself what truths still lie hidden.

 

8. If you could work side by side with one of the Paranormal Investigator greats, who would it be?

Pete Haviland of Lone Star Spirits. Over 20 years of experience in investigation and research in Houston and the surrounding areas. www.lonestarspirits.org.

 

9. Read any good Paranormal Books lately?


Mysterious America: The Ultimate Guide to the Nation's Weirdest Wonders, Strangest Spots, and Creepiest Creatures... by Loren Coleman. Ghost lights, Devil Monkeys, Momo, The Jersey Devil. This Book has it all. And Haunted Pennsylvania: Ghosts And Strange Phenomena of the Keystone State by Mark Nesbitt. This book is a collection of frightening Pennsylvania ghost stories, including the Civil War ghosts of Gettysburg, spirits at John Brown’s tannery, the fiddling ghost of Potter County, hauntings at the Eastern State Penitentiary, the mysterious indelible handprint, and many more that really make you think about what is happening in this most haunted place.

 

10. What Question do people ask you most when you tell them your a paranormal investigator, writer?

Have you seen any real ghosts? Will they encounter a real haunting... see a or photograph a ghost, or be really scared on taking The Ghost Tour of Galveston Island.

 

11. In your opinion, Where is the most Haunted city in America?

Most haunted city in my opinion is of course Galveston, Texas. Then New Orleans and Gettysburg in that order. I guess it's because Galveston has a hold on me and i'm proud of the many things that I uncover all the time. My Top Haunted lists of what I think are the most haunted cities where one might see or encounter a real ghost or haunting is on my web site so check it out. www.ghosttoursofgalvestonisland.com/DASH.html it's on the bottom of the page.

12. Do you feel more people should get involved with Ghost hunting or Paranormal Investigation?

Only if the people involved are sincere in what they are doing. People tend to do a lot of things for the wrong reasons and ghost hunting is one of them.

 

13. What does the future hold for you?

My forth coming book. A trip to Europe, and many more real encounters with the paranormal.

 

14. Paranormal Conventions do you see them growing?

Yes I do. The public at this time is more aware of the supernatural then ever before.

 


15. What is your most favored tool of the trade?

A keen mind that is always open to learning new things.

 

 

16. Tell us about your best moment in investigating or giving a tour?

When I feel that I have enlightened someone enough to help them find their own conclusions to their personal hauntings and ghosts.

 

17. What is the hardest part about running a paranormal tour company?

Dealing with people that have had a little too much to drink. They shouldn't be taking a ghost tour in the first place. They usually do it to please their friends and then make the tour miserable for all those in earshot. I think if you are with a group and someone does not want to take a ghost tour no matter what the reason don't force them. Skeptics are most welcome on all the tours I give. because hopefully they will get something from the tour if just a historical point is offered or maybe and encounter.

 

18. How do you document your investigations?

Usually I record it on tape or write it down. To many people in Galveston or afraid to discuss their ghost encounters. Even though they have had them and the hauntings do need investigating. I like to gather information all the time.

 

19. Have you ever taken a ghost Tour not your own? And, What about it did you not like?

Yes I have taken a ghost tour in another city and was really put off by the unprofessional of the company and the Tour guide. The Tour guides voice was uncaring and a constant drone. This put all those on the tour virtually into a deep sleep. His delivery of the stories was less then enthusiastic.

.

20. What in the field of ghost hunting and Paranormal Investigating needs the most attention.

The hauntings the ghosts the documentation of the stories from several sources. Every one has a story to tell people need to listen more.
