Too bad that Juan Rodriguez Cabrillo was yet another slave holding, genocidal rapist, like Columbus and many others. It's hard to see a ship glorifying these travesties. Let's at least teach the truth about them.

El Galeón
Step back in time aboard El Galeón, the breathtaking 1/1 scale reconstruction of a 16th Century Spanish galleon, while she calls St Augustine, Florida her home port until July 2014. Spanish Galleons, used primarily for their cargo transporting abilities, were frequently bought and sold by Spanish and English governments during the 1600s, and often taken over and converted into Pirate ships in the rough Carribean sea waters.
