I wish our tour guide would of talked a little faster, there were a lot of "umm". It made the tour a little less interesting, and drug out.

It was not a good experience - the advertisement made it seem like it was appropriate for families, but it was not. It was small, my kids kept being told not to touch anything. They made being a pirate boring.

I'm glad we used this groupon because they are going to be closing for possibly two years.

The tour was great! Pretty fast (which was nice since it was hot.) The lady that did our tour had a great speaking voice and was very knowledgeable. I learned a lot more about the way of life back then and Columbus himself. The prices are reasonable without the Groupon too (parking was free on Sunday just as advertised on the Santa Maria site.) Would for sure recommend for all ages :) our group had two 31 yr olds, 14 yr old, and a 5 yr old - we all liked it.

From Our Editors

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.
