De Hollander 

Bergse plas


A boat tour with captain

Rent a sloop with captain for a cruise on the Bergse Plassen! The Hollander sails standard from the Bergse Voorplas | Hillegersberg and can take up to 30 people. Would you rather have more space during your canal cruise in Rotterdam? Then stick to the maximum of 24 persons. Furthermore, depending on the weather, we can partially or fully cover the sloop. Even the sides can be closed by windows. 

On the Bergse Voorplas we sail past the windmill and water sports clubs. The Bergse Achterplas is a maze of many small islands with summer houses.

You rent The Hollander with skipper for a relaxing cruise in Rotterdam starting from €345,- During the cruise we sail for 2 hours on the Bergse Plassen. Do you want to sail longer? Then €75,- per half hour will be added. Provided it is not too busy at the lock and we have a minimum of 3.5 hours sailing time we can also leave the Bergse Plas and sail a bit over the Rotte or to the Kralingse Plas. Snacks and drinks can be placed on the large coffee table. Would you like to complete the cruise with one of our packages? Check out the catering options.

About our cruises with a capatain

What if it rains? 

In case of bad weather we will completely cover the boat, and it's even possible to put windows in the side so that you can look outside. From the Lombardkade we lower the roof for 1 bridge, but otherwise the boat wil be covered. The cruise will therefore continue even if it rains and your programme will not be spoiled!

Can I play music?

The boat does have a small speaker on board on which music can be played softly during most of the cruise.Only when we go through a lock, are moored or sail next to houses the music has to be turned off. You are not allowed to bring your own speaker.

Bringing food and drinks?

There is a large table aboard the Papillon and a cooler with ice and glasses for your snacks and drinks. Drinking alcohol is allowed, just in moderation. If passengers drink too much and are under the influence of alcohol, we can no longer guarantee safety.

What if I have to pee? 

Unfortunately, the Hollander has no built-in toilet and there are not much public toilets along the route. We have one toilet stop at the local harbor during the 2-hour boat ride on the Bergse Plas. So go to the toilet before you come and don't drink too much during the first part of the cruise.
