Rodrigo. But he didn't receive credit or payment for being the first to sight it, since Columbus claimed the right.
On October 11, 1492, Columbus claimed in his dairy that he saw a light that looked like it was from a candle. The next day, October 12, one of his crew members, Rodrigo de Triana, actually saw land. Nevertheless, Columbus stated his sighting was the first sighting of land, which allowed him to keep the reward money promised to the first person to see land.
A boat from the Santa Maria took Columbus ashore. The names "Niña ", "Pinta" and "Santa Maria", are currently applied to the ships of Columbus' first voyage in 1492. On October 12, 1492, a lookout aboard the Pinta was first to sight land, an island in the Bahamas. As there were no developed harbors, the ships sent small boats to the beach. Columbus himself was aboard the Santa Maria and was aboard the first boat ashore.
