The Niña is a replica of the ship on which Columbus sailed across the Atlantic on his three voyages of discovery to the New World beginning in 1492.

Columbus sailed the tiny ship over 25,000 miles. That ship was last heard of in 1501.

Pinta was recently built in Brazil to accompany the new Niña on all of her travels. The Pinta is a larger version of the archetypal caravel and offers larger deck space for walk-aboard tours.

Discover how explorers accomplished what they did over 500 years ago.
