We are proud to share a wide selection of sailing ships around the world, ready to take you out for an unforgettable experience. We offer both sailing cruises with an experienced crew aboard and the option to rent a sailboat for yourself in case you are already a sailor yourself.
As an Amsterdam based company we are specialized in sailing cruises in The Netherlands. So if you are visiting our wonderful city, you should certainly check out the possibilities to set sail from Amsterdam.
The options are endless: from a 4-hour sailing trip on the IJ river with a drink and BBQ to a multiple day trip sailing the waves on the IJsselmeer (one of the largest freshwater lakes in Europe) and the Wadden Sea.
Apart from Amsterdam, we have a fleet of sailing ships in the charming harbours of Monnickendam, Enkhuizen and Hoorn. In the North we provide sailing charters from the famous harbour towns Harlingen and Makkum in Friesland. Most sailing ships that depart from these harbours are capable of not only sailing the Ijsselmeer and Frisian Lakes, but also the Wadden Sea.
When booking a sailing cruise with us there is no need to get cold feet. All our ships in The Netherlands have experienced crews aboard. This way you can sit back and relax while sailing the waves. Do you want to have a more active role during your cruise? No problem at all! The captain and his crew are happy to show you the ropes so you can be a real part of the team.
In the North of The Netherlands, above the province of Friesland, there is a true pearl to be found: the Wadden Sea (‘Wadddenzee’ in Dutch). This is the largest tidal flats system in the world, extending from the Dutch coast all the way to Germany and Denmark. One thing is for sure: there is no better way to explore this area by boat. Our captains sailing this dynamic landscape by heart and love to share their knowledge with you.
An absolute must when going on a Wadden Cruise, is to let your ship fall dry during low tide. It is truly unique experience to see the seabed falling dry and realize that you have actually stranded on the bottom of the sea. Now get off board and walk it! When the tide comes in again, the water will flood the flats again and your ship will be floating soon enough after which you can proceed your journey. Highly recommended is to dock in the harbours of one or more of the Wadden Islands, like Terschelling, Texel, Schiermonnikoog and Vlieland.
We have a great opportunity for all sailing ship fans. In August 2020 SAIL will be held once again in Amsterdam. This once-every-5-years event will be a great opportunity to visit Amsterdam and sleep on a houseboat! Sleeping on one of the ancient canals is old Amsterdam would be the SAIL experience of a life time. And, good news, we have some special offers selected for you, check our SAIL 2020 page.
