Join Ron Kolek and Maureen Wood of the New England Ghost Project and special guest Richard Felix, historian/folklorist of TV's "Most Haunted," for a sunset tour on the Piscataqua River, followed by a fun get-together at Portsmouth's Rusty Hammer restaurant.

The narrated cruise aboard the Heritage will leave Portsmouth Harbor Cruises' Ceres Street Dock at 7:00 p.m. The Heritage will cruise past two historic lighthouses: Portsmouth Harbor Light (said to be haunted by a former keeper) and Whaleback Light. The Portsmouth Naval Shipyard and its haunted prison will be viewed along with other fascinating sites.

Following the cruise, all aboard will head to the Rusty Hammer restaurant, just a few blocks away. Hors d'oeuvres will be served, and there will be a cash bar. Richard Felix will share some of his experiences as one of the most respected paranormal investigators in the world today.

He has produced a series of successful paranormal-themed DVDs and has written several popular books. He is married with two children and still lives in Derbyshire. For more information, visit
