Iselmar - Rederij Vooruit (5)

A day on the water

Our day trips start at 9:30 AM, however different time periods are possible on request.
A short instruction on safety follows and together with the crew, a course is planned according to your wishes.
How about a stop in one of the scenic fishing villages alongside the water or visiting Vlieland, Texel or Terschelling?
You might even see seals on your way to the islands!

The captain then happily invites you to help him hoist the sails and, during the day, will show you how to perfectly sail a ship.
You will set foot ashore again around 5:30 PM.


Below deck, all ships have their own kitchen, fully equipped with everything you need to prepare your own snacks and meals.
Should you rather focus on sailing instead of cooking, then letting Rederij Vooruit take care of catering is the way to go.
Whether this concerns a simple platter of sandwiches or a lavish barbecue party on deck!

Overnight stay

For those who wish to enjoy the Netherlands a little longer, we suggest booking a ship for a short weekend, a weekend, a midweek or a week.
The ship will then serve as your hotel during your stay.
