Due to the low river water in Memphis and the response in Cape Girardeau, the 'Pinta' and the 'Nina', will remained docked along the Mississippi River in Cape Girardeau through Sunday.
Both ships tour together as a new and enhanced 'sailing museum' to educate the public and school children on the 'caravel', a Portuguese ship used by Columbus and many early explorers to discover the world. No reservations are necessary.
