GHOST AND HISTORY TOURS IN DOWNTOWN SAFETY HARBOR AVAILABLE NIGHTLY AT 7:00PM
Cynthia Dominick is a certified Tour Guide and has been obsessed with the spirit world ever since she was a little girl. Her Aunt Diann once lived in a haunted house in Northlake, Illinois. Her Aunt Norma used to talk to a spirit that sat at the end of her bed every night. Cynthia has captured many photos and recordings of spirits in her lifetime as well as seeing orbs with her naked eyes. On a recent trip to St. Augustine Cynthia heard footsteps running up behind her. When she turned around to move over, there was no one there! Her friend validated the phantom footsteps by acknowledging that she heard them too, but she wasn’t going to say anything. Cynthia currently lives in a condo where the previous occupant keeps her up at night with her nightly shenanigans.
Cynthia holds two CEU Certificates of Course Completion for Paranormal Investigation and is a board member of Tampa Bay Women in Tourism.

“The Tampa Bay area is a microcosm of the history of Florida. It is all here. Ancient Native civilizations, Spanish explorers, Cavalry outposts, robber barons, railroads, outlaws, and the steady advance of law and order. Now people from all over come to visit one of the most beautiful and unique places in the world. It is a real pleasure to be able to share my love and knowledge of the area with our guests.
