ST. AUGUSTINE, Fla. -- The El Galeon will be extending its stay in the Ancient City.
The 17th century replica tall ship, which was scheduled to sail out of St. Augustine on Sunday, June 9, will now stay at the city's Municipal Marina until June 23.
According to Barbara Golden with the St. Augustine, Ponte Vedra, & The Beaches Visitors and Convention Bureau, the ship's crew reports that St. Augustine has been their best city in terms of number of visitors and revenue in the United States.
On Monday alone, the ship made more than $6,000, Golden said.
Tickets to tour the El Galeon are $8 for children ages 6 to 12 and $15 for adults. Children age 5 and under are free. Click here for more information.
