AHOY THERE!

The Tall Ship Challenge travels through the Great Lakes every three years. Although there is no Tall Ship Festival scheduled for 2017, we are already in the planning stages for the next festival in the summer of 2019!

El Galeón

El Galeón is a 170 foot, 495 ton, authentic wooden replica of a galleon that was part of Spain’s West Indies fleet. With information about 16th century European sailing techniques and technology, as well as important Florida history exhibits, El Galeón tells the 500 year story since the arrival of Juan Ponce de León on the eastern shore of Florida. St. Augustine, named El Galeón’s home American port.
