On Behalf of El Galeón, We Welcome You!
One of the most exciting international nautical events of 2016, Spain delivers a full-size reconstructed Spanish sailing vessel used in early Colonial times to ports on Florida's East and West coasts. With daily tours providing unforgetable memories and information about 16th century European sailing techniques and technology, El Galeón will tell the 500 year story since the arrival of Juan Ponce de León on the Eastern shores of Florida.
Step back in time aboard El Galeón, the breathtaking 1/1 scale reconstruction of a 16th Century Spanish galleon, while she sails up and down the Eastern US Coast. Spanish Galleons, used primarily for their cargo transporting abilities, were frequently bought and sold by Spanish and English governments during the 1600s, and often taken over and converted into Pirate ships in the rough Carribean sea waters.
The Galeon is open for tours in Charleston, SC until Monday May 8th
