COLUMBUS FOUNDATION TOURS
The Columbus Foundation receives no funds from government agencies or private foundations. We are supported
by the tickets purchased to tour the ships.
We have two types of tours, self-guided and guided. The self-guided tours are for individuals who simply arrive during open hours and pay to go aboard and experience the ships. The guided tours are
only for groups of 15 OR MORE PAYING guests
, and are a true educational event, ideal for students.
During the tour you will learn what life was like aboard a ship in the 15th century, about Columbus's many voyages, the mechanics of the ship, life aboard today, and much more.
Our larger ship, the Pinta, has a gift shop aboard. You can see a list of our items by visiting our
You can book a tour anytime from 9am-6pm on days the ships are in port.
Each group has a tour guide assigned to them.
Each tour will last an average of 30 minutes, with time split between The Nina and Pinta.
Groups of 15 or more receive a group rate of $5 per person.
Maximum number of people allowed in a 30 minute time slot is 100.
(If your number goes over 100, you will need to book an additional 30-minute time slot.)
You will receive a phone confirmation, usually within 24 hours of submitting your tour request.
