The Nao Victoria Experience Tall Ship Event welcomes visitors to climb aboard an exact replica of Ferdinand Magellan’s Noa Victoria, which became the first ship to circumnavigate the globe during a 32,000-mile journey nearly 500 years ago. Recently arrived from Spain, she’s now docked at the Tampa Convention Center in downtown Tampa from March 21–30, 2014 and will be open to visitors from 10:00 a.m. until 6:00 p.m. each day.
National Air, Sea and Space Foundation
The National Air, Sea and Space Foundation host events designed to dazzle spectators and educate the public on the awesome power of airplanes, ships, and spacecrafts. Eyes are drawn skyward during air shows as the supersonic U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds soar across the atmosphere, demonstrating awe-inspiring 360s and precise formations. On the sea, the foundation hosts cruises in a replica of the Nao Victoria, the 16th-century Spanish carrack that Magellan sailed around the world without once stopping to fill up the gas tank.
