It’s not that often tall ships sail into town so when one does it’s a spectacular sight on our waterfront.
The Tall Ship El Galeón Andalucía set anchor at the Roberta Bondar Park waterfront early Friday afternoon. It’s here until Sunday.
The 160-foot Galeón Andalucía is the replica of the type of vessel used by the Spanish Crown for maritime expeditions during the 16th through the 18th centuries. Galleons were intended to discover and then establish trade routes between Spain, America and the Philippines islands, and formed the then called Fleet of the Indies.
Tickets are $10 for adults, $5 for children (5-12 years old), with family packages available (2 adults and 3 children) for $30, and can be purchased at the Roberta Bondar Marina
