FORT MYERS, Fla. – Finishing up their tour of Southwest Florida, replicas of the explorer ships the Nina and Pinta have arrived at their final port of call in Fort Myers.
Both ships travel the country, sharing the story of Christopher Columbus and the explorers who sailed the vessels. Both are historically accurate, built to scale and for the most part even sailed the same way they were back in 1492. The current crew actually live on the ships and sail with them port to port.
Visitors are allowed to view the ships up close and even board both vessels seeing how the past and current crew lived. Tickets are $8 for adults, $7 for seniors 60+, $6 for age 5-16 and children under 4 are free. Boarding of the ships is available 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. daily, the Nina and Pinta are docked in Fort Myers until Tuesday, April 26th.
The Marina at Edison Ford is located at 2360 West 1st Street in downtown Fort Myers or Maker #54 on the Okeechobee Waterway along the Caloosahatchee River via boat.
