Spanish ships at Port Canaveral

Those who will soon be around Cocoa Beach, Cape Canaveral or the Kennedy Space Center should know that the Spanish galleon "Andalucia"  has arrived at Port Canaveral and will be available for tours through May 11, in celebration of the 500th anniversary of Spain's association with Florida.

The wooden sailing ship is a recreation of the type of ship that carried goods between Spain and Florida 400 years ago. It is 162 feet long and the main mast is 126 feet high. It has a dozen cast iron cannon on its decks.

The tours are offered from noon to 5 weekdays and 9 to 5 weekends at the east end of Glen Cheek Drive ("restaurant row") at the port.

On May 8 and 9, the world's third-largest tall ship, the 370-foot "Juan Sabastian de Elcano", will also be at the port. Tours will be offered from 3 to 6 the first and second days, and 10 to 1 on the second day only, at cruise terminal 3, east of Glen Cheek Drive. These tours are free.
