Replica explorer ship draws hundreds of visitors to the waterfront (16 photos)

The Nao Trinidad is docked at the Roberta Bondar Pavilion until Sunday night

Hundreds of residents are spending a sunny weekend at the waterfront this afternoon exploring a replica of the Nao Trinidad, a 16th-century flagship that carried out Portuguese explorer Ferdinand Magellan’s voyage to Spain over 500 years ago.

Visitors can tour the ship until 9 p.m. this evening and on Sunday from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m.

Tickets are $15 for adults and $5 for youth (five-12 years old), with family packages available (two adults and three children) for $35. Children under five can attend the event for free.

Tickets can be purchased at the Community Services Department located in the lobby level of the Ronald A. Irwin Civic Centre or at the Roberta Bondar Marina during regular hours.
