Maritime Ghost Conference 2012

A Fundraiser for the Maritime Museum of San Diego 
This event, the first of its kind, focused on the subject of maritime ghosts. Experts on various haunted ships (including the Star of India, the RMS Queen Mary, the USS Hornet, and others) gave presentations on the ghosts of each ship, telling what paranormal activity has been seen and experienced. Additionally, there was a presentation of ghost ships of history, such as the story of the Marie Celeste. Famous names from the paranormal field were present either as additional guest speakers, or having met with the public to sell their books and videos in the conference's vendor areas. All proceeds went to this non-profit museum, one of the best maritime museums in the country.  Nicole was ecstatic to host a presentation about the RMS Queen Mary, sharing with audience members her various paranormal encounters and captured evidence.
