About El Galeón
El Galeón is a 170-foot, 495-ton, detailed wooden replica of a galleon that was part of Spain’s West Indies fleet. During the Viva Florida 500 Voyage, it will cover more than 3500 nautical miles with 28 crew members aboard, maneuvering more than 9,600 square feet of sail area, as it was done in the 16th Century. The ship is owned by the Nao Victoria Foundation of Seville, Spain.

El Galeón began its historic Viva Florida 500 Voyage in Spain and stopped in Puerto Rico, where Ponce de León once was governor. The ship’s Florida route was similar to the one Ponce de León sailed 500 years ago, and the crew is using the navigational technology of that era.

Ponce de León’s arrival in Florida in April 1513 marked the beginning of a European presence in what is now the U.S. mainland. He also is credited with discovering the Gulf Stream, which led to development of the early trade routes between Spain and the Americas.
