She was present at the Battle of Cape St Vincent on 14 February 1797, when she was boarded by a number of British sailors from HMS Captain led by Horatio Nelson. They successfully took the ship, then crossed from her decks to board the San Josef, which had come to the aid of the San Nicolás, but had become encumbered with her. Nelson and his men then captured the San Josef as well.
