Do you believe in ghosts, unexplainable events, or Hawaiian superstitions? I was born and raised in Hawaii and have heard so many Hawaii spooky stories--some first hand accounts from people that I know and respect, that I am a believer. I mean, why take any chances? Like many people in Hawaii, I have my own religion, but I also respect Hawaiian beliefs.
When I lived on Oahu it got easier to not be afraid because I lived in Honolulu with a constantly growing amount of people, street lights, and houses close to each other so you had neighbors all around you--safety in numbers. When I moved to the Big Island all of that changed!
We live in a rural area in the middle of a rainforest with only tress and birds--and the occasional wild pig--for neighbors. At night it gets super, super dark (unless there is a full moon) and we can see the glow from the current lava flow so we are constantly reminded that Madame Pele lives near us.
When we built our house, we had Reverend Komoku, a Hawaiian Christian man come to bless our house. He said a Christian prayer and Hawaiian prayer complete with holy water from a special koa calabash and ti leaf.
On Oahu, there are tours offered where a guide will take you to some of the most haunted Hawaii places on the island.
Oahu Ghost Tours is a popular attraction with 3 popular tours: Honolulu City Haunts night walking tour, Orbs of Oahu night driving tour, and Sacred Spirits day driving tour.
On our tours, guests are taken to some of the most haunted places on O'ahu, if not in all of the islands. Oahu Ghost Tours® will take you close-up and allow you to witness firsthand these very unique places...from the much feared Night Marchers, to the places where sacrifices were made to ancient gods and goddesses of Hawai'i, and to the more modern haunts, like those of old hospitals that housed sick children during World War II...from orbs, to extreme and instant temperature changes, to anomalies that seem to have no source. Many of these places are history by day, and haunts by night! Our guides are some of the most experienced and are experts on telling the stories of these spooky places. All stories are true, and all sites are real. Historical and ancestral information is used, as well as eye witness accounts. Hawaiian ghost tours are not like the typical ghost tours you may be familiar with on the mainland or in other locations around the world. As Hawaiians have their own way of dealing with the supernatural, you may see and witness several ceremonial events at the places visited. All of these events are important to the Hawaiian and their personal beliefs. Please be respectful of these. Also, some of the sites visited may not have a particular story behind the actual haunt. The location may be just a reputed hotspot where paranormal activity is extremely high and ghosts have made it their home for a reason that cannot be explained.
