Boating activities

We are happy to extend a canal cruise with a fun activity such as a Leiden course, a boating quiz, a cooking workshop, a walking tour or pushing with 'the Doordouwer'. 

For inspiration, below are a number of standard options you can book with us. Of course, it is also possible to customise an entire sailing trip. For example, a three-hour cruise on the beautiful Kagerplassen and the Joppe, followed by dinner at a restaurant of your choice. Feel free to contact us to discuss all the possibilities!


With our regular catering partners, we are happy to provide catering on board; from a 'Coffee boat' to a luxury lunch on board. View the catering options here.

Sailing and walking in the wake of the Romans

Cruise along the Old Rhine, recently a UNESCO World Heritage Site!
Two thousand years ago it was busy on and along the Old Rhine, the northern border (Limes) of the mighty Roman Empire. It was one of the most important shipping routes for troops and trade in Europe.

And you can experience a part of that!

Laughter connects. Sailing gives it a special dimension. The ideal outing for your company or team!


Leidse Bingo

In early spring there is an opportunity to take a special 'bird tour' in the Groene Hart.  An experienced guide will provide you with information about the meadow birds during the breeding season and will look for beautiful spots in the polders to photograph from the water. 
Don't forget your camera and binoculars!


Pushing with the

Step aboard the Doordouwer, an old sea sloop that you propel yourself.

Two experienced skippers will guide you across the water - with drum beats or the beat of music.
