Due to overwhelming popularity, tall ship El Galeon to remain another week in Greenport for extra tours

Due to the overwhelming response to the Spanish galleon El Galeón’s visit to Greenport Village, ship manager Fernando Viota announced today that they would remain at Mitchell Park Marina through Sunday, Oct. 30.

“During the days scheduled for the event in Greenport, there are many neighbors who have enjoyed climbing aboard the El Galeón. Therefore, the Spanish boat [will] remain open to the public port during the next week in extended hours from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. with a price entry $10 for adults, $5 for children under 12 and free for children under 5 years,” said Viota in a Facebook announcement.

“We want to thank [Greenport Village] for allowing us to carry out this exceptional measure and the thousands of residents of Greenport who have shown us their support and love during these days,” said Viota in the post.

The ship will also be giving “haunted galleon” tours on Friday and Saturday night from 7 to 9 p.m.

Tickets for tours during regular hours can be purchased at the dock or by clicking here. Tickets for the Halloween tours must be purchased separately, and are available online for $20 for adults and $10 for children ages 5-10.
