The “Pinta” and the “Niña,” replicas of Christopher Columbus’ ships will return to Grafton later this month.  The ships will be docked at the Loading Dock for 10 days, beginning May 27th.  You will be able to take a walk-aboard, self-guided tour any day of the week.  It's $8 for adults, $7 for seniors and $6 for students 5-18.  Children 4 and under are free.

The ship will be open every day from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.  Grafton Mayor Tom Thompson tells The Big Z he is excited to have the ships return.

No reservations are needed to board the boats, but teachers or organizations wishing to schedule a 30-minute guided tour with a crew member can do so by calling 1-787-672-2152.  Both ships tour together as a new and enhanced “sailing museum.”
