Welcome Aboard...Ye Matthew Legacy

Imagine the wind whistling through the sails, seagulls soaring overhead and the gentle rolling of a 15th century Caravel.

As you look out to sea you dream of what it must have felt like for John Cabot in 1497 as he sailed across the uncharted Atlantic.

Come and experience the mystique of the Matthew in historic downtown Bonavista, Newfoundland, Canada.
