Ghost Ship of Jean St. John is a local legend in Bayou Fantom.


While the ghost of pirate Jean St. John is spoken of in whispers throughout New Bordeaux, the Bayou Fantom is where he was last seen. Local legend tells of ghost ships and a wronged voodoo queen that cursed him, but the only thing that is known to be true is that this notorious gun runner was last seen navigating his ship during the War of 1812. Word has it that hidden somewhere in the marshes is his ship, The Grand Dame.


  • The ship can be found by a lobster claw shaped island in the center of Bayou Fantom.
