Looking for enthusiastic skippers!

Stichting De Leidse Rederij is looking for enthusiastic and joyous voluntary skippers for the new boating season.

Water tourism is thriving! The number of tourists and people from Leiden who want to see our beautiful city from the water is ever-increasing. That’s also why Stichting De Leidse Rederij is looking for new skippers who have their navigation license and their maritime radio-telephone certificate (or intending to get both).  Skippers who are also (preferably) well known with the waters of Leiden, humorous and enjoy driving boats.


With our eleven boats, the foundation provides (luxurious) weddings, bachelor(ette) parties, birthday parties, family trips, educative trips and business trips.
Apart from that, Stichting De Leidse Rederij also participates in cultural events, such as: ‘Museumnacht Leiden’, ‘Peurbakkentocht’, ‘Schemerstad Leiden’ en de ‘Nacht van Kunst en Kennis’.

If you are available for a few hours per week and would like to join our foundation, feel free to contact us. We can provide you with more information and we can discuss the potential of you becoming a skipper via our coordinator;

Daaf Sloos; 071-528 22 52, boeking@leidserederij.nl

Or just visit us in our Shipping Office, located at Apothekersdijk number 5 in Leiden, for a cup of coffee.
