Make a reservation and be assured of a day on the water
All our boats have an electric motor which means you can't hear them. They are really easy to operate so everyone can boat our smaller boats (max. 5 persons) without having experience. The larger boat (max. 10 persons) requires some basic experience, however a licence is not necessary. Before departure we will explain you everything you need to know and we will make sure you have our map of the area.
Don't worry, we thought about everything. All our boats have comfortable cushions and we have lifejackets for children in many different sizes (free of charge). And when it's a little colder on the water you will stay warm with our blankets. The deposit is € 50 for the smaller boat and € 100 for the bigger boat (sorry we don't accept credit cards). When the weather is not as good as we hoped for you are able to cancel your reservation free of charge. Picnics can be cancelled maximum one night in advance.
You are able to boat different routes and see several picturesque old Dutch villages. Along the way signs are shown to navigate you to the right direction. The shortest trip takes 2 hours and will get you to the historical village Broek in Waterland and it's surrounding nature. The round trip of 2,5 hours allow you to explore even more of the nature area. The most popular route is the one of 3 hours where you can see different old Dutch villages; Broek in Waterland, Zuiderwoude and Monnickendam. Don't want to miss anything? It's also possible to rent the boat for more than 3 hours or rent it the whole day. During boating there are many different spots to stop and relax.
