A historically accurate replica of the ship that took Ferdinand Magellan around the globe sails into Tampa Bay today.

The tall ship Nao Victoria is scheduled to arrive at the Tampa Convention Center around 7 p.m. The ship will remain docked there through March 30, where it will offer daily tours beginning Friday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.

The 85-ton vessel is modeled after Magellan’s ship of the same name, which in 1522 became the first ship to make the nearly three-year, 32,000-mile journey to circumnavigate the globe.

Tour tickets priced from $5.50 to $12, are on sale online or by calling (877) 466-3404.
