3 Henry Hudson

Discovered so much water the that he has more named after him in the world - indian

Henry Hudson is by far the best explorer. He should have a holiday instead of Columbus. It’s just a fact. I don’t care what all you columbians say, Columbus is a terrible explorer, he discovered America by accident. - Thisgoronsonfire

4 Vasco da Gama

He traveled in the huge "sea", with his crew, from Lisbon (Portugal) to Goa (India) and he did that in the 15th century, in a "wood boat".

Ps: Columbus in fact wasn't a great navigator... His mission was also to discovery the "maritime path to India" and he failed it, he just got the luck to find another place on his travel.
