Night Visions

When the League of Paranormal Investigators set up cameras to document ghosts at the Deering Estate (16701 SW 72nd Ave., Miami), it captured an image of a man watching them from the boat basin. It also saw a woman dressed in Victorian clothing floating above the bay. So keep an eye out this Monday night as you embark on the “Moonlight Canoe Tour” that launches from this historic and perhaps haunted site. Under the glow of a full moon, you’ll glide over sea grass and around manatees to nearby Chicken Key, a seven-acre mangrove island.

Wait, was that phosphorescence in the waves? Or moonlight glare off a white bonefish? Perhaps it was a ticked-off spirit who can’t move on to the afterlife because his murder was never solved? Relax. It was just the shine off a floating can of Bud, so there’s no reason to be spooked when the tour stops to have s’mores and a campfire on the dark and isolated Chicken Key. The ecoadventure costs $40, reservations are required, and canoes launch at 7 p.m. Call 305-365-3018, or visit deeringestate.com.
