Columbus Ships Arrive in Lake Charles LA

Lake Charles LA welcomes

The Columbus  Replica Ships

When learning about history,  most of us remember hearing  that phrase we learned in School — “Columbus sailed the Ocean Blue in 1492”

The  Columbus Replica Ships the ‘Pinta and the ‘Nina’ are  in Lake Charles  and the ships will be docked at the Civic Center for tours beginning April 20-May 8 at the Lake Charles Seawall

The ‘Nina’ was built completely by hand and without the use of power tools. Archaeology  magazine called the ship “the most historically correct Columbus replica ever  built.”

Both the Nina and Pinta ships tour together as a new and enhanced ‘sailing museum’ for the purpose of educating the public and school children.   What a terrific  educational opportunity for Southwest Louisiana teachers and organizations who can schedule guided tours with a crew member!  There is an $8 admission for adults and $6 Admission for students.


The ships  arrived  in Lake Charles last night and this morning  could be spotted out in the lake.  What an  awesome sight along the lakefront!
