See replicas of Columbus’ Niña & Pinta in Savannah, March 24-29

March 20th, 2015

Nina Pinta in beaufort, Savannah

On Tuesday, March 24, the ‘Pinta’ and the ‘Nina’, replicas of Columbus’ Ships, will open in Savannah.

The ships will be returning for their 2nd visit to River Street and docked at Rousakis Riverfront Plaza, until their departure early Monday morning March 30.

While in port, the general public is invited to visit the ships for a walk-aboard, self-guided tour. Admission charges are $8.00 for adults, $ 7.00 for seniors and $6.00 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.

School trips

Teachers or organizations wishing to schedule a 30 minute guided tour with a crew member should call 1-787-672-2152 or email columfnd1492@gmail.com. Minimum of 15. $5.00 per person. No Maximum. Visit The Columbus Foundation website at www.ninapinta.org

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.” The “Pinta” was recently built in Brazil to accompany the Nina on all of her travels. She is a larger version of the archetypal caravel. Historians consider the caravel the Space Shuttle of the fifteenth century.

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.

The ships arrive on Monday, March 23 & leave the morning of March 30. Next stop: Charleston April 2-12.
