ASHTABULA, Ohio – The ‘Pinta’ and the ‘Nina’, replicas of Christopher Columbus’ ships will dock July 28 at the Ashtabula Transient Dock, 498 Morton Drive, for tours of the ships until departure Aug. 2.

Both ships tour together as a sailing museum for the purpose of educating the public on the caravel, a Portuguese ship used by Columbus and many early explorers to discover the world.

The Nina was built by hand and without the use of power tools. The Pinta was built in Brazil to accompany the Nina on all of her travels. She is a larger version of the archetypal caravel.

Self-guided tours will be given on the ships $8 for adults, $7 for senior citizens and $6 for students ages 5 to 16. Children 4 and under are free. The ships will be open every day 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. For more information visit NinaPinta.org.
