Channel Islands Maritime Museum and Tall Ship Mystic Whaler
to Host Spooky Maritime Scavenger Hunt
Oxnard, CA: In celebration of Channel Islands Harbor’s Parade of Frights on October 29th, the Channel Islands Maritime Museum (CIMM) and the tall ship Mystic Whaler will be hosting a Spooky Maritime Scavenger Hunt from 3:00 pm until 6:00 pm on that day.
The scavenger hunt will take visitors through the museum exploring maritime oddities and superstitions while on a quest for treasure (candy!). Children will receive a free Channel Islands Harbor reusable trick-or-treat bag courtesy of Channel Islands Harbor (while supplies last).
The final clue on the scavenger hunt will be located at Mystic Whaler. Mystic Whaler will then take over the holiday spookiness with its haunted ship and scary maritime stories.
Admission for the event is $10 for adults, $7.00 for CIMM members, and free for those under the age of 18. For everyone’s safety and enjoyment, please note that there must be one adult/parent/guardian for every four children/youth while inside of the Museum and at Mystic Whaler. Tickets are available through the Museum’s website at www.cimmvc.org/event-details/spooky-maritime-scavenger-hunt.
