Out and about with the family? Step aboard and get a breath of fresh air in Zeeland. Get acquainted with playful seals and porpoises during the family cruise!Book now
The family cruise is a great experience for passengers of all ages. Step aboard and sail with us for 1.5 hours on the Oosterschelde, the largest National Park in the Netherlands.
There is plenty to do on the Oosterschelde. Smell the salty sea air, feel the wind in your hair and feast your eyes on the view. From the water, you’ll have the best view of the Zeeland Bridge, the Plompetoren Tower and the Oosterschelde storm surge barrier.
We provide binoculars so that you yourself (or with a little help from our guide) can spot all kinds of birds and seals. We are also spotting porpoises with increasing frequency – an unforgettable experience for young and old. So, don’t forget to bring your camera! The trip is made at high and low tide. The best chance to see seals is at low tide.
The family cruise is for families, but also for people who want to come on their own or with friends. Everyone is welcome, even the dog! There are tables inside and outside and the ship is wheelchair friendly (with the exception of the sun deck).
For children from 8 years of age we have a fun “activity booklet”, so that they can have fun learning the ins and outs of the Oosterschelde. For our younger passengers, we have a lovely colouring page of Oosterschelde National Park.
The galley is open during the family cruise. Whatever the time, you’ll always find something tasty on our extensive menu. From coffee with a traditional Zeeland bolus to a cup of homemade soup or delicious mussels. For the ultimate convenience, you can also order snacks and drinks in advance.
The guide on board will tell you all about the Oosterschelde National Park. Besides the beautiful natural environment, you will also see the Delta Works, the Zeeland Bridge, the Plompetoren Tower and we will sail past the real Zeeland mussel farms. You can head to your reserved seat thirty minutes before we cast off. Clean binoculars are available for each table.Book family cruise
