The Niña and Pinta are docked adjacent to Leicht Memorial Park on westbound Dousman Street / U.S. Route 141, at its intersection with Museum Place, at or near 128 Dousman Street, Green Bay, Wisconsin 54303.

NOTE:  The Niña and Pinta are in Green Bay until July 22, 2015; then they sail on to Racine. Click here for the 2015 Port Schedule.
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.
The Pinta was recently built in Brazil to accompany The Niña 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. The Pinta is available for private parties and charters.
