Pinta replica sails into Biloxi
Folks driving on Highway 90 in Biloxi this afternoon may have done a double take if they saw a 1400s era ship sailing into port.
But make no mistake, it is a replica of Christopher Columbus’ famous ship, the Pinta, coming into Biloxi for dockside education tours next week.
The Pinta Tours is a sailing museum that educates the public and school children on the caravel, a Portuguese ship used by Columbus and many early explorers.
Self-guided tours are available 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. daily with no reservations needed. Tours are $8 for adults, $7 for seniors, and $6 for students.
Guided tours are by appointment at ninapinta.org.
