$9 for Admission for Four (Up to $18 Value)

Aboard a historically accurate re-creation of the Santa Maria, guides and actors dramatize life as it was lived on Columbus's exploratory vessel. Visitors handle replicas of centuries-old navigational equipment that utilized the sun, moon, stars, and poles to guide sailors across oceans. Chatty seamen invite guests to sit down and play games, the same pastimes that kept Columbus's crew entertained as they sawed through the Atlantic.

The Santa Maria

Resting in shallow waters, the faithful wooden re-creation of Columbus’s flagship Santa Maria puts into perspective the lives of sailors as they crossed the Atlantic in cramped quarters, wholly beholden to wind and weather. On board, guides and crewmembers reenact daily life as it must have been for the legendary explorer and his crew, conveniently providing English subtitles for each boisterous Spanish sea shanty. Apart from regular daily tours, themed events such as Talk Like a Pirate Weekend or the Gospel Sail-A-Bration showcase the talents of pirate impersonators and area gospel performers, respectively.
