“Nicole is my ‘go-to gal’ for Queen Mary history and ghostly activity.  Her approach is both professional and informative.  Having worked with Nicole several times in the past, she has never disappointed nor displayed anything but pure heart, experience and professionalism.  I highly recommend reading her work and booking her for your next radio interview or conference!  One of the best in the field and truly one of this community’s sweethearts!”

I, as Captain of this ship, am very proud and honored to take her on her last voyage.  It is with some sadness that she is sailing for her last time, but I am glad that I am not taking her to the scrap yards and that in Long Beach she will be a living monument to British shipbuilding, engineering and seamanship.

Most of this generation will be gone, including myself, when this event occurs; however, the Queen Mary, launched today, will know its greatest fame and popularity when she never sails another mile and never carries another passenger.

Queen Mary Research and Investigation Projects

SDPRS Founder, Nicole Strickland, has been researching and investigating the Queen Mary for paranormal phenomena for nearly ten years.  Combined, Nicole and the SDPRS team have conducted approximately 50 para research projects in various areas of the liner.  There are many theories pertaining to why the Queen Mary is one of the most haunted locations on our planet.  Since the ship sits in a body of water and water is a conductor of electricity, well, this can play into why the ship is a ghost hot spot.  Additionally, quartzite, bronze, iron and 56 different varieties of wood exist in the ship, which are all known to retain spiritual energy.  Also, think about the scores of folks from all over the world who travel to the Queen Mary each year to experience its ghostly phenomena – in our opinion, there seems to be a psychokinetic(PK) reason for the ship’s numerous hauntings.  Also, Nicole feels that the ship is one huge spiritual portal, attracting many energies not necessarily related to the ship.  And, of course, you have the ship’s rich history, which is a foundation in and of itself for the liner’s paranormal energy. 

The Mary has seen its share of death and tragedy, especially during its troopship duties during WWII.  Toward the end of the war and during the ship’s repatriation duties, it served as both a hospital and a transporter for men, women and children to and from their destinations.  Therefore, all of the above mentioned facts blend with each other and make for a strong spiritual pathway.  As moths are to a flame, spirits are to the RMS Queen Mary.
 Nicole and the SDPRS team have traveled across the United States investigating various locations for paranormal activity.  By far, we have selected the RMS Queen Mary as being our favorite place to conduct both historical and paranormal-related research.  The Queen Mary has a beautiful spiritual aura, and with her Art-Deco- excellence, nostalgic atmosphere and mystical nature, she brings excitement and intrigue to all who visit her.
