On Friday, August 3rd, the ‘Pinta’ and the ‘Nina’, replicas of Columbus’ Ships, will open in Owensboro.  The ships will be docked at English Park, 2 Woodford Avenue, until their departure early Monday morning, August 13th.

     The ‘Nina’ was built completely by hand and without the use of power tools.  Archaeology magazine called the ship “the most historically correct Columbus replica ever built.”  In 2005, the ‘Pinta’, also a caravel, was launched in Brazil and was the first ship to sight land in the New World.    

     Both ships tour together as a new and enhanced ‘sailing museum’ for the purpose of educating the public and school children on the ‘caravel’, a Portuguese ship used by Columbus   and many early explorers to discover the world. 

     While in port, the general public is invited to visit the ships for a walk-aboard, self-guided tour.  Admission charges are $8.50for adults, $7.50 for seniors, and $6.50 for students 5 – 16.   Children 4 and under are Free.  The ships are open every day from 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. No reservations necessary. 

   Organizations wishing to schedule a 30-minute guided tour with a crew member should call 1-787 -672-2152 or email [email protected] .  Minimum of 15.  $5.00 per person.  No Maximum. Visit our website at www.ninapinta.org
