Oct. 31, 2012 @ 11:45 PM

HUNTINGTON -- Due to Superstorm Sandy, the replicas of Columbus' ships the "Nina" and the "Pinta" will now be docked in Huntington beginning Wednesday, Nov. 14. The ships will be docked until their departure early morning Tuesday, Nov. 20.

The "Nina" was built by hand without power tools while the "Pinta" was built in Brazil to accompany her sister ship.

The ships are available for self-guided tours at a cost of $8 for adults, $7 for seniors and $6 for students between the ages of 5 and 16. Children 4 and under are admitted free. The ships will be available for tours from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. while docked.

Teachers or organizations wanting to schedule a 30-minute guided tour with a crew member can call 787-672-2152 or email columfnd@surfbvi.com. The cost for that is $5 per person for groups of 15 or more.
