El Galeon is one of the world’s largest and most accurate replicas of the classic 17th-century vessel known for exploration and trade.

Visitors will have the chance to explore all six decks and walk under three masts topping off at 121-feet.

The ship’s crew, which have sailed the vessel over 50,000 nautical miles, is mostly from Spain. Carter Blease, a spokesperson for the ship, tells Hudson Valley Post the crew is very eager to visit the Hudson Valley and meet local residents.

Tickets cost $10 for adults, $5 for children.
