Schedule Of Columbus Ships On The Erie Canal


UPDATE- 7/18-2017 5:00PM

You can follow live updates where to catch the ships sailing on Twitter. It appears they plan on being on Oneida Lake at some point this afternoon.

According to New York Upstate, when the ships depart Albany, they will travel along the Erie Canal to Oneida Lake, then go from the Oneida River to Oswego River all the way to city of Oswego.

The 65-foot (19-meter), hand-built Nina is a replica of the ship Columbus sailed across the Atlantic in 1492. The floating museum is owned by the Columbus Foundation, based in the British Virgin Islands, and is supported by tour fees. The 85-foot (25-meter) Pinta was recently built in Brazil to accompany the Nina. The organization doesn’t have a replica of Columbus’ third ship, the Santa Maria.”

When we see a schedule of when they will travel through CNY, we will keep you updated.
