    Got a late start today but went to the El Galeon tour at 2:30. Bought my ticket I and asked several times if the ship was leaving tomorrow (Sunday) and again at the entrance to the tour. Both times they indicated the ship would definitely be open for tours Sunday. Just before I entered the event it started to rain and I was told I could use my ticket on Sunday. Nothing is ever definite but it looks like we just might be able to take photos of the ship on Sunday.
