In addition to pottery, glass and baskets, Ocracoke's Village Craftsmen offers nightly island ghost tours led by Philip Howard. Howard can trace his ancestry back eight generations to Blackbeard's quartermaster. His walking tours explore either the Creekside or Point area of Ocracoke Village and are peppered with tales of the legendary pirate who met his bitter (headless) end at Teach’s Hole. The tours offer other island lore like the “phantom freighter” and the ghost who haunts the Ocracoke Harbor Inn. Each tour includes an overview of the island's history and is a mile and a half long. Total tour time tends to be about 90 minutes.
