Nina and Pinta Sail Into Marietta Harbor
Posted on: 10/10/2012
By  Mike Cullums
The Nina and the Pinta - but not the Santa Maria - will dock in Marietta tomorrow. Not the originals, of course, but realistic replicas.
They will arrive at noon tomorrow at Marietta Harbor on the Muskingum River, according to their sponsors, the Columbus Foundation, which is based in the British Virgin Islands.

They were crafted to offer adults and children the educational experience of touring the vessels and learning about the original crew members.   
Often called the most historically accurate Columbus replica ship ever built, The Nina, built in 1991, was featured in Ridley Scott's movie 1492. The larger Pinta was built in Brazil in 2005.  
Visitors are invited to stop by the Harbor from 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. starting Friday and extending through October 21.  Admission is $8 for adults, $7 for seniors, and $6 for students age 5 to 16. Children under five are admitted free.
As for the Santa Maria, that replica ship is permanently moored at Battelle Riverfront Park on the Scioto River in downtown Columbus.
