John Cabot was an Italian navigator. Giovanni Caboto (known in English as John Cabot; c. 1450 - c. 1499) was an Italian navigator and explorer whose 1497 discovery of Nor…th America is commonly held to be the first European voyage to the continent since Norse exploration of the Americas in the early eleventh century. The official position of the Canadian and United Kingdom governments is that he landed on the island of Newfoundland.
First of all next time you need to tell us when did he do what. Luckily I realized that you are asking us "When did John Cabot start to be an explorer. Well John Cabot started… exploring in 1496-1498 at the age of 21. :)
John Cabot is famous for finding Newfoundland about 511 years ago. Cabots voyage was a step into the unknown abroad an oak-toughened caravel. A brave, little ship of a c…lassic British design. After 53 day travelling at sea, the ship made land. It was an unexpected far east that was found on the voyage. The far East fo the Western World. Cabot's voyage marked the start of the globe-spanning British Empire and made possible, and then inevitable, the European settlement of North America. The last voyage John Cabot went on was his second one and he went with 4 other boats and was never seen again. And neither were the ships... a lot of lives were lost.

Cabot went to Bristol to make the preparations for his voyage. Bristol was the second-largest seaport in England, and during the years from 1480 onwards several expeditions ha…d been sent out to look for Hy-Brazil, an island said to lie somewhere in the Atlantic Ocean according to Celtic legends. Bristol may have been particularly interested in seeking this island because it appears to have been believed that Bristol men had discovered the island at earlier date but then lost it. Since it was said to be a source of brazilwood (from which a valuable red dye could be obtained) the merchants had a sound economic motive for seeking the isle. First voyageAll that is known about Cabot's first voyage is contained in a letter from John Day (a Bristol merchant) to Christopher Columbus. The letter, written in the winter of 1497/8, mostly concerns the 1497 voyage. However, by way of an aside, Day notes that: "Since your Lordship wants information relating to the first voyage, here is what happened: he went with one ship, his crew confused him, he was short of supplies and ran into bad weather, and he decided to turn back.". Since Cabot only received his patent in March 1496, it is generally assumed that this voyage took place in the summer of that year Second voyageNearly everything that is known about the 1497 voyage comes from four short letters and a brief chronicle entry. The chronicle entry, which dates from 1565, states in its entry for 1496/7 that "This year, on St. John the Baptist's Day [24 June 1497], the land of America was found by the Merchants of Bristow in a shippe of Bristowe, called the Mathew; the which said the ship departed from the port of Bristowe, the second day of May, and came home again the 6th of August next following." Although the source is late, some of the details can be corroborated from sources that the Bristol chronicler cannot have known about. It is thus generally considered that he had copied the main details from some earlier chronicle entry, perhaps merely replacing "new found land", or something similar, with "America", which had become a common term by 1565. Given that various of the details in the chronicle can be corroborated, it is generally assumed to be reliable.
