In 1492, Columbus sailed the ocean blue . . .
Replicas of the Niña and Pinta are on display here in Dubuque. It is a nice opportunity to explore your imagination. Imagine crossing the Atlantic Ocean in one of these ships. See below for more details about the two ships.

|The Niña – Most Historically Accurate Columbus Replica Ship Ever Built
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, but the new Niña has a different mission. We are a floating museum, and we visit ports all over the Western Hemisphere.
Pinta – Our Second Columbus Replica Ship
Pinta was recently built in Brazil to accompany the Nina on all of her travels. She is a larger version of the archetypal caravel and offers larger deck space for walk-aboard tours and has a 40 ft air conditioned main cabin down below with seating. Pinta is available for private parties and charters.
