A perfect day out on the water

Step into one of our electric boats and experience an unforgettable day out. Our tea house and boat rental is located right in the middle of 'Waterland'. Exploring this beautiful area by boat is the best thing to do as most of Waterland consists of water. Small canals will lead you past green fields, to small lakes and old villages. Boat right through picturesque Broek in Waterland and admire the famous wooden houses. Bring our homemade picnic on board and relax.

How it works

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 standard boats (max. 5 persons) without having experience. The medium 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 you can use our blankets. 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. Please send an e-mail to of call 0031299652735.
