Tour a tall ship on the cheap

If you’ve always wanted to tour a replica of Ferdinand Magellan’s Noa Victoria, then your ship has come in.

The Sail Pavilion at the Tampa Convention Center will be the site of Tampa Bay’s latest tall ship visit March 19-30. Tours are available starting Friday, March 21.

The Noa Victoria was the first ship to circumnavigate the world nearly 500 years ago.

Tours will be held from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. March 21-30. Tickets can be purchased online in advance for $8 for adults and $5.50 for children ages 6 -12. Tickets purchased online are discounted 20 percent from the site-sold admissions.

The Tampa Convention Center is located at 333 S. Franklin St., Tampa.
