Your boat is your base
Boat rentals in Zeeland
Are you in for a spot of adventure, as a water sport fanatic? Or are you a tad tamer, sailing or cruising on your motor boat? Will you take to the open sea, or take in a lake? Sail out of the harbour and raise your sails, your eyes on the endless horizon or ever-unfolding views.
Sloop, ship to sure
Your hired sloop is for the sensuous sailor. Out on the water, a helm for the captain, a cool beam and a deck full of comfort. Out on the Veerse Meer lake, sail away, free from tides. Moor up on one of the islands – you’ll lose count of them! – and stretch those legs to go on a picnic. Or for a swim. Cruise around, sunbathe, eat, drink and just enjoy the feeling of some pretty little holidays on the water.
Licence to chill
It really is easy to hire a boat in Zeeland, though you will need a licence if it is longer than 15 metres and can go faster than 20 km/hour. Tell the rental station where you’re heading and work out your route on the handy interactive route map.
Kayak, check, canoe, check
First choose your boat. Then weigh up taking a kayak trip on calm inland waters, or step up to going sea-kayaking. Just you, your paddle and your life jacket and you’re out in the surf. Head into the waves – hard work, mind! – and then let them sweep you round and onto the beach. It was the ultimate struggle, your muscles will tell you, and it melts into a weary contentment. Yes, we kayak.
